A Plexi tribute act that takes the tone to another level.

The SmallBox 50W guitar head features two footswitchable channels with separate gain and volume controls. The amp has a shared EQ and FX loop. The first channel is voiced like the classic Plexi amps of British fame. It cleans up very nicely with the guitar volume, going from clean-ish to crunch to that famous Plexi-like growl. The second channel has that famous Friedman higher-gain distortion and crunch that we all love. This is a lot of amp in a 50-watt package.

The SmallBox takes pedals very well and loves boosts, overdrives, phasers, flangers, tremolos, wahs, etc. It also has ultra transparent series FX loop that takes time-based FX pedals and rack units equally well.

Handwired in the USA.

  • Best 50 watt head available

    As reviewed by VICTOR on 12/22/2014

    I've almost had or played every guitar head out there, Bogner, Diezel, Engl, Mesa, etc. This head is in a league of its own. It's a very easy and simple amp to dial in. I LOVE the clean (plexi) channel. It's so natural sounding and gives you the perfect combination of clean to just enough dirt. Add a Tube Screamer and you get this beautiful vintage Hendrix tone. Channel two puts you in Nirvana, from AC/DC to old Van Halen. This head loves foot pedals, very transparent and perfectly mixed. I highly recommend this head for almost every genre of music.

  • Nearest thing to the Holy Grail of tone.

    As reviewed by Michael JA on 6/30/2014

    Came in to find a JTM but Keith said try this as I don't buy without touching usually. He brought a Fender Strat Standard and when I first plugged it in I said WOW! I did not even use any special settings but tried channel 1 and 2 and played with gain. He said one of the guitarists from Steely Dan came in and got the Brown Eye 100. 50 is all I need and low volume did not hurt the tone. Soon I'll buy one.
