Our famous Ugly 18 amp in a 1×12 cabinet.
The Ugly 18 Combo is a 2-channel, 18 watt, dual 12AX7/EL84 tube amplifier.
It’s circuit has evolved over time through the requests of some of my better clients and can be custom voiced to meet your own tastes.
Normal channel has a fat clean tone, but breaks up
in more of a british way, with no flubby bottom end.
This channel also has a simple tone control.
The bright channel has been renamed to the Tight channel
with just a single knob to control it, a midrange bark that breaks up
evenly with even tighter lows and more gain in the mids.
These two channels are meant to be jumped or bridged.
This amp really opens up with all the knobs available!
