Milkman Sound

Description

The Milkman 300W Half and Half is where the old technology meets the new technology. The preamp is similar to the other all-tube Milkman amplifiers: it is hand-wired with high plate voltage. The discrete tube preamp section feeds into a Class D power module, which scales up to 300 watts.

Unlike other hybrid amplifiers, the tube portion of the Half and Half is designed and built like a vintage tube amplifier. Its not shoehorned into a circuitboard and running at low voltage. Tube amps need to be built a certain way to sound their best, be serviceable, and last into the ages. The Half and Half was designed with all of this in mind.

A DI with XLR output with level control has been added to the rear panel. This allows you to use the amplifier as a standalone tube preamp with EQ. It is safe to run the Half and Half with no speaker attached, or you can use the DI with a speaker attached for a balanced XLR line out.
