Santa Cruz, CA - Headstrong  Amplifiers best known for its Blackface low wattage offerings has  released the first 3 Custom Shop Limited Edition Series amps with the  following models

-The Verbrovibe

-The Royal Reverb

-The Blue Lamp 112

These  amps will be produced for the rest of 2012 in very small production  runs of less than 25 each on a first come first served basis.

The Verbrovibe is  a faithful reproduction of the 1963 Fender Vibroverb® amp, the first  Fender® to feature on board reverb.  At a "soft" 35 watts this amp  features a hand wired fiberboard, 2X10" Weber speakers, 2 channels, Reverb and bias Vary  tremolo which modulates the bias from the power tubes to create the  tremolo effect.  Housed in a solid pine finger jointed cabinet and  covered in Brown Tolex with Wheat grill cloth this is a dead on reproduction in both looks and sound.

The Royal Reverb is another hand wired reproduction of the famous 1964 Deluxe® Reverb combo
The  amp features the same control panel layout as the original with Reverb  and Opto based tremolo circuit typical of this era of amps. Housed in a  solid pine finger jointed cabinet and covered in Black tolex with silver cloth the amp comes in at 22 watts  with 2-6V6 power tubes through an Eminence speaker.  This is the classic  low wattage Blackface tone that has been used on recordings for several  decades
The Royal Reverb-Amp

The Blue Lamp 112 is  a faithful reproduction of the classic 1957-60 narrow panel Tweed  Deluxe®  Again hand wired on a fiberboard like the originals this  classic 5E3 circuit comes in at 18 watts and features 2- channels (normal and Bright) with 2  volumes controls and a master tone control knob.

2-  inputs per channel (Hi and Lo).  The handwired chassis is housed in a  solid pine finger jointed cabinet and covered with lacquered cloth Tweed  just like the originals.  A Weber 12A125 20 watt speaker truly captures the inefficient tone of the originals and  provides great break up at moderate volume levels.
