Introducing the California Tweed 6V6 1x12 Combo: A Vintage Tone Revival

Step into the world of timeless vintage tone with the California Tweed 6V6 1x12 Combo. This amplifier pays homage to the classic '50s Tweed circuits crafted by the legendary Leo Fender. Inspired by the organic sound, versatile controls, and smooth transition from clean to overdrive of those vintage circuits, Randall Smith, the renowned SF Bay Area amp repairman, embarked on his journey to create boutique guitar amplifiers. Now, after five decades of experience, the California Tweed brings forth an exciting new realm of tweed-based performance and authentic 6V6 character, setting a new standard for vintage tone.

Single Channel Simplicity with 5 Power Options

The California Tweed features a straightforward single-channel design with a range of power options. Its all-tube construction includes 4x6V6 Power Tubes and 5x12AX7 and 1x12AT7 preamp tubes. What sets it apart is the patented Incremental Multi-Watt™ Power Amp, incorporating Duo-Class™ and Dyna-Watt™ technologies. With a single 5-Way Rotary Switch, you can choose from five power levels, two operating classes, and three wiring options:

  • 40 Watts - 4x6V6 Class A/B Pentode
  • 30 Watts - 2x6V6 Class A/B Triode + 2x6V6 Class A/B Pentode
  • 20 Watts - 2x6V6 Class A/B Pentode
  • 10 Watts - 2x6V6 Class A/B Triode
  • 2 Watts - 1x6V6 Triode + 1x6V6 Pentode, Single-Ended Class A Parallel

The front panel features Normal and Low (Low is padded for more headroom) Inputs, along with controls for Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Reverb, and Master. The vintage all-tube, long-tank, spring reverb with an external reverb switching jack and a fully buffered, tube-driven series FX loop complete this amplifier's feature set, offering everything you need for that golden California Tone.
