The Granger M50 Plexi valve amplifier is a hand-wired reproduction of the legendary early 70's 50 watt amp that is a rock legend. Capable of providing one of the most accurate recreations of Van Halen's early tone (as demonstrated in the YouTube video), as well as Allman to Zeppelin - classic tones that defined a musical revolution - it's all here. The controls are classic. There are no footswitches, internal relays, or other signal-robbing components. It is based on tried and true circuitry and rock-solid construction methods. As with some of the vintage amps of the 60s and 70s, each channel has two inputs, one high and one low impedance, and a volume control. A (post phase inverter) master volume (based on Ken Fisher's Type II design) is now standard on the amp. Each channel shares the standard Bass, Middle and Treble tone stack and Presence control. The inputs can be jumpered to utilize both channels with channel 1 being the bright and channel 2 being the normal voicing. The preamp consists of 3 ECC83S valves and power is rectified our own Premium Rectifier board (UF4007 diodes) to produce a punchy, tight powerful low end. The power section runs on two EL34s which produce over 50 watts when fully overdriven. Other output tubes can be substituted during ordering (see below). For the service-minded player, an external bias adjustment with low voltage test points allows the user to bias the amp when replacing valves without removing the chassis (standard feature, only requires removal of the back panel). The 1x12 combo features a Warehouse Guitar Speakers Liberator 80 speaker. The 2x12 combo features (1) Warehouse Guitar Speakers Veteran 30 and (1) WGS ET65 speaker. Other speaker options are available upon request. Custom options include VariWattage, a switchable X-Gain Mod, Ultimate FX loop, passive effects loop, tolex & piping change, and a custom cover with the Granger logo.
