Mark Kane 50w EL34 with Built-In Dumbleator! BRAND NEW Authorized Dealer !

Brand New!  Authorized Dealer!  RARE Dealer Stock!  Avoid the 8-10 week wait!

Patterned after Dumble #183 this 50-watt (EL34 version) has all the sustain, chime, note bloom and touch sensitivity you are dreaming of when you decide upon a D-style amp.  We have sold dozens upon dozens of Mark’s amps to collectors and players around the planet.  They have seen Youtube videos, read up, tried all the others…then they get the Mark Kane and the reviews uninmously declare it the winner.

This particular head has a BUILT-IN “dumbleator” which is a key part of achieving the D tone.  Typically this comes as a stand-alone 1-rack unit. Mark has recently decided to incorporate the unit into the head itself!

Satisfaction Promise:  If you purchase THIS BRAND NEW MARK KANE AMP…as the original owner YOU are entitled to up to two free re-voicings (you pay shipping both ways).

Invest in a true classic.  I have never once heard a complaint about any of Mark’s amps….that says a TON in a day and age where people love to hear themselves gripe.

Standel / Requisite Audio Super Single-Ended

Standel / Requisite Audio Super Single-Ended

Impossibly Rare STANDEL / Requisite Audio SUPER SINGLE-ENDED Head! This was custom ordered by our best customer.  LOADED with features such as an effects loop.   Smoke Free environment and never gigged.  BARELY used.   Hard to find a mark on it but we’re certain you’ll fire up the ol’ electron microscope so we will grade it as EXCELLENT rather than Mint.

Comes with Matching Cab that is loaded with a Vintage Jensen Speaker (selected by Danny and created with cabinet as part of package to original owner).

Tonal flexibility at low volumes?  CHECK.  The switches and knobs are about as interactive as you could ever hope for.  You can FEEL the amp respond differently as you cycle through the options.  IT plays SO well with different varieties of speakers.  I had an absolute blast with this and my effects board of classic overdrives….LOVES pedals.

This amp has zero mods and no repairs or issues.  Hand created and a MUST have for anyone who wants to feel & hear nuance in their playing.
