barebones Monaco Lite - Handwired All-Valve Guitar Amplifier - Made in the UK

5Watt Class A with Celestion 10" Ten30

Perfect for Practice, Studio and Stage, the barebones Monaco Lite offers pure valve tone with full command of your sound

Featuring a single 12AX7 in cascade mode for maximum overdrive; a single 6V6 for glorious overdriven tones at reasonable volumes; speakers by none other than Celestion, whose speakers drive some of the best amps ever built

​Despite being our simplest amplifier, the Monaco Lite offers full command of your sound -
  • Tailor your sound with full 'Bass', 'Middle' and 'Treble' controls
  • 'Gain' takes your sound from beautiful single-coil tones reminiscent of the 60's right through to thick humbucker distortion for solos, power chords and a driving rhythm
  • ​The master 'Volume' allows bedroom practice without upsetting the neighbours. However, when you get to the stage or studio, take the Volume closer to 10 where this amp really starts cooking. Tones that instantly transport you to The Crossroads, Stairway to Heaven or a Highway to Hell...

​Close mic'd, the barebones Monaco Lite provides crystal clear tones which sound like they are straight from the records you listen to everyday. This is no surprise as the barebones Monaco Lite is built using traditional methods with quality components throughout. Not a stone has been left unturned in search for the ultimate tone

We have striven to produce the finest amplifier possible, mixing the best of vintage design with the best modern reliability. An amplifier we hope you'll be proud to own; an amplifier which will serve you well for many years to come
