A breakthrough combo rooted in some lost designs from the early '60s.
Lil’ Elvis is a breakthrough amplifier rooted in some lost '60s designs from one of Britain’s best designer. Based on a two EL84 power section, 12AX7 front end, and a clean output of 12 watts, the authority and vocabulary of this little amp are truly surprising and inspiring.
With Lil’ Elvis, one may never feel as if they’re playing a small amplifier at all. With a feeling akin to that of playing a mini-4x12 rig, Lil’ Elvis is truly a pleasure for rock, country, jazz, R&B and hard rockers alike. In addition to a truly astonishing vocabulary, touch response, and harmonic content, Lil’ Elvis also has 65’s ‘Master Voltage. 65amps' Master Voltage is a large leap forward in power technology. Not a scaling schema, attenuator or master volume, the Master Voltage keeps the amp’s entire vocabulary, authority, and responsiveness intact while reducing power down to 2 or 3 watts. This feature makes Lil’ Elvis an outstanding recording, home, small club, and large stage amp, especially when in-ear monitors are required for your gig.
All Lil Elvis 65amps feature:
Mercury Magnetics Hand-wound Transformers made in Los Angeles - Custom made using the highest grade M6 steel and pure copper windings. Mercury’s hand-wound transformers offer a quality level unparalleled in the market today. Hand-wound transformers, while much more expensive, will deliver elegant, balanced, clear vintage tone that is unmistakable.
SoZo Capacitors – For the most musical and detailed response from your amplifier. SoZos are the most musical, consistent and complete sounding capacitors on the market. Made to the highest standards in the USA.
Aluminum Chassis – All of 65smps' chassis are made from high-grade aluminum here in Los Angeles. This quality of chassis is the best we’ve found for grounding quietly, shielding against 21st century RF sources that are everywhere, and the ruggedness required for working professionals.
Authentic Allen-Bradley Carbon Comp resistors where it counts – In the signal path of all 65amps are the best sounding resistors known: Allen-Bradley Carbon Comps. Renown for decades as the “magic” part required for getting “that” sound, the Allen-Bradley resistor is an unparalleled finishing touch for your tone. All other resistors are 1% tolerance mil-spec parts made in the Americas that ensure that your amp will always be performing at peak potential and always be safe.
