REEVES CUSTOM 12
The design philosophy of this particular amplifier was
simple ... to get the preamp and power tubes to clip...to get that
"fat" JTM/Plexi British sound at volume levels that won't sterilize
small animals or render innocent bystanders unconscious.
The Custom 12 was created for players seeking a small
amp vibe with a touch more muscle. It embraces the low-volume virtues of its
now discontinued little brother, the Custom 6, while addressing its
limitations. The Custom 12 maintains true class-A characteristics of creamy
second-harmonic distortion by configuring its two EL-84 output tubes in
parallel single-ended mode. And with the added power tube and larger output transformer,
the Custom 12 has a punchier tone and more clean headroom.
The Custom 12 is made right here in the USA and are
completely hand-wired, utilizing turret board construction, Heyboer
transformers and laser etched faceplates. The Custom 12 head and combo will
become the ultra-portable solution to getting classic Reeves tone.
