The Half Pint was designed to be the most versatile low power amplifier possible. Reverb and tremolo and Class A single ended breakup are just the start of what this little amp can do. With the onboard voltage controlled power scaling, you can turn this amp up to 10 and dial it back to just a fraction of a watt so that your fun zone is volume appropriate for just about anywhere.
This amp is comfortable on stage, in studio, and at home. Because of the variable power, you can set it how you like and adjust the power level for the room.
The power section of this amplifier consists of a single 6V6 power tube biased to class A. The front end is similar to the Creamer, with extended headroom reverb and tremolo.
Four speaker options help tailor the Half Pint to your unique style:
Celestion Greenback 12" is a transparent sounding speaker. Bright, Lively, and efficient. This speaker has a big bottom even at low volume. This speaker has very little breakup and does not color the amp when driven.
Jupiter Alnico 12" has a classic American alnico magnet sound. A bit less transparent in the upper midrange, this speaker adds a "woody" tone. Its lively on top, and a bit more focused in the bass response than the Greenback. The speaker starts to break up and add alnico character as the amp is pushed. Its the most efficient of the 3 speaker options.
VSOP Alnico 12" is warm, buttery smooth, and slightly less "loud" feeling than the other Alnico options. Its very good for getting the full tone from the amp without disruptive volume levels.
Celestion Alnico Blue 12" takes the Pint in a different direction. This speaker is very mid forward with little midrange scoop. The top is bright, and the bass response is the tightest out of the three options. This speaker starts to break up when the amp is driven hard. When the amp is overdriven, the Blue is extremely reactive shedding low end and pushing the midrange further into the fun zone.
The amplifier is hand wired onto a turret board with Mercury Magnetics and Jupiter capacitors are standard equipment.
