Balls P-50 (Apr. 2015)

Here’s a custom build from a little over a year ago that I neglected to write about.  The customer in this case wanted a pretty standard English heavy rock sound and so this is based on the Marshall plexi format with a few appointments made to my taste.  Channel one is dark and pretty clean and channel two a bit more bright and gainy.  My favorite way to do a plexi!  Parts in this are Sprague orange drop caps, Mag-Comp iron, CTS pots, and my favored pairing of Mullard reissue EL34s and TungSol pre-amp tubes.  The amp comes standard with jacks and pot for exterior bias adjustment, because screw paying for a tube re-bias!
