-PROTOTYPE 30w 1x12 combo with reverb.

  • Separate PRE- and POWER amp sections.
  • Top Boost Tone Circuit on control panel.
  • GREAT sounding three knob spring reverb on control panel.
  • 3x ECC-83 in the PRE-amp, 1x in the reverb, 4x EL-84 in the POWER amp, GZ-34 valve rectification.
  • Celestion Cream 100w Alnico speaker.
  • Presence and “Thump”€¯ Control on back panel.
  • Leather handles.


The amp sounds like a real healthy original AC-30 with everything turned off or turned down except the VOL. and TONE. It can get as high gain as  any of the highest gain modern amps with it's extra gain stages and  boost control cranked up and pulled out.

The cab’s wood is African Mahogany€¯ that looked like Black Limba€¯ to me but called African Mahogany€¯ by both Owl Hardwood in Des Plaines, IL USA and Aidan O’Toole, the cab maker. Curlly maple front picture frame€¯ also sourced from Owl Hardwood. Cabinet created and signed by  Aidan (The Big Fella) O’Toole of Co. Cork.

Sounds like God speaking from CLEAN to over the top gain/distortion. Vintage to insane. BEAUTIFUL electronics work.

Sounds absolutely amazing. Looks GREAT. Weighs a ton.
BEAUTIFUL  looking and sounding amp.

I wanted to start my own custom amp company. This is one of two prototypes, the 30w. The other is a 45w with some other/different  features. I've since decided the cool idea of having separate pre- and  power amp sections was too much work to build and am going with single  piece chassis with both pre- and power- amp stages on it. I'm also  offering a basic amplifier with the various options available on a  custom basis. These two different prototypes have all the various  options between them. I'd like to think, one day, these two prototypes  will become desirable, fought over collectibles. They do sound AWESOME  today. Check back later for updates about production models. $8500 .................... or make offer.

-PROTOTYPE 45w 1x12 combo with FX Loop.

  • Separate PRE- and POWER amp sections.
  • Treble/Middle/Bass Tone Circuit on control panel.
  • Three knob FX Loop on control panel.
  • 3x ECC-83 in the PRE-amp, 2x KT-66 in the POWER amp, GZ-34 valve rectification.
  • Celestion Cream 100w Alnico speaker.
  • Rotary Presence and “THUMP” Controls on back panel that acts like the Loudness€¯ control on an old stereo adding bass and, well, thump to your sound.
  • Leather handles.

The amp sounds like THE best original JTM-45 with everything turned off or turned down except the VOL. and TONE. It can get as high gain as any modern high gain amp with  the extra gain stages and boost cranked up and pulled out.
The cab’s wood is Northern California Redwood Heart, sourced from  Barry’€s Mill in Cazadero, CA with a curly maple front picture frame.  Cabinet created and signed by Aidan (The Big Fella) O’Toole of Co. Cork, Ireland.
Sounds like God speaking from CLEAN to over the top  gain/distortion. Vintage to insane. BEAUTIFUL electronics work if I may say so.
BEAUTIFUL looking and sounding amp.
Did I mention, with  everything turned down or off, except the VOL. and TONE controls that  this amp sounds like the BEST vintage/original JTM-45 EVER?
