We announced this 22lb tone machine yesterday:

https://milkmansound.com/collections/amplifiers/products/the-amp-12-combo

it sounds great with pedal steel, and is identical to the pedal version.

Tim... brother... you're absolutely crushin' it with your offerings. Do you wake up every morning with an idea for an even better amp? And then just step over to the workbench and build it?

Wow, could it be? A light amp that can handle a steel guitar? Will it stay clean at high volumes?

A few questions:
1.)Does this amp use a class D power module?
2.)Where is the DI output connector located?
3.)Could a 12 inch 4 ohms speaker be installed instead of the 8 ohm speaker so it's a 100 watt amp.
4.)What would be the price difference with a 4 ohm speaker?
Thanks
Henry

Henry:

1 - yes, like the Half and Half its got class D power

2 - the DI is on the rear panel (you can see where the speaker plugs in - its next to that with a push button ground lift switch)

3 - yes, you can get 100W into 4ohms

4 - I am not sure. It depends on what speaker.

Is this a tube amp, or a hybrid like the half and half? All solid state?

Mr. Marcus,
22 lbs? That's amazing. Shocked

How is The Amp so light? What about the transformer? Do you have a blog where you outline how this is possible?

I don't even know what questions to ask.

Daniel

there is no transformer Smile

we ended up with such a light amplifier because we specifically chose materials that would sound good and cut the weight at the same time. Pine, Aluminum, and a Neo magnet speaker that is matched to the output of the amplifier (not a 500W speaker that weighs a ton and happens to have a neo magnet)

I think the steel players will be blown away by the result - these are going to hit my dealers and website in April. Just a few weeks from now

It would be nice if you published the speaker sensitivity rating along with the power wattage output. 50 watts into 8Ω means NOTHING without that information.
