Tug Boat Combo Amp


The Tug Boat is an all tube, Class A combo suitable for many settings; the bedroom, on stage and in the studio. The Tug circuitry minimizes component count between your guitar pickups and the loudspeaker- allowing you to maximize the character of your individual guitars, and bring out subtle differences that may be lost in otherwise overly complicated amplifiers.

Tug Boat Combo Amp

Despites it’s small size, the Tug Boat pulls a heavy load. This combo amplifier is loud enough to play on the stage, elegant enough for the studio, and still manageable in the bedroom. 8 watts of Class A tube power are delivered into a 10″ speaker demonstrating the best of discrete, analog and point-to-point circuitry.

The single pre-amp tube is exchangeable with four types – 12AU7, 12AY7, 12AT7 and 12AX7. The single power tube is also interchangeable, with NO bias adjustment- 6L6, EL34, KT66, KT77, KT88, 6550 and 5881 all work wonderfully in this amplifier. We ship the amp with a single KT77 and a single 12AX7 and leave the rest up to you! Each combination yields rich harmonic character from American-style sweet cleans to barky, British distortion. We also offer a “Tube Roller” Add on pack that includes (1) 12AX7, (1) 12AT7, (1) 12AY7, (1) KT77, (1) EL34 and (1) 6L6.

The Tug Boat features a six-step attenuator for scaling your volume to the room you are playing. At the lowest setting (-21db) you will be able to play all night without disturbing anyone in the house! At full power you will be able to perform at nearly any small to medium size stage.

The Tug Boat comes stock with a Jensen Electric Lightning 10″ speaker, but many more options are available. Please email us for more info.
