This unique guitar amplifier is a refurbished and modified Akai/Roberts reel-to-reel tape deck amplifier. Care was taken to tailor the sound for clean and distorted electric guitar tones, and the results are sublime.

The Monkeymatic Black Butte features a 6X4 rectifier, one 12AD7 preamp tube (high quality 12AX7) and one 6BQ5 (EL84) output tube and generates 2 watts into 4 or 8 ohms. With its single Tone control and fully present mids, this amp sounds Tweed when clean, Plexi with gained up, and Tweed again when dimed. Check out the demo!

This amp is housed in a custom built, 1/2" finish-grade plywood cabinet, covered in road-worthy vinyl.

The VU meter lights up and the needle moves with your playing!

I love these amps, and I'm confident you will too!

Dimensions: 13.75"w, 7.25"d, 7.0"h, 12.5 lbs
