The Classic 45 faithfully gives you the sound of an original JTM-45, only better! This is an incredibly fun amp to play that has the tones of Beano era Clapton as well as early AC/DC and ZZ Top…and many others.
Amazing cleans to to the best crunchy overdriven sounds.  Controlled low end response, broad range EQ, touch sensitivity and exceptional 3D balance.

2016.5 models are now using the Drake 784-103 output transformer and Drake 1202-118 power transformer along with Drake choke 352-114 all supplied by Heyboer.
Classic 45 uses a Bass circuit as all JTM-era models. OT is selectable for 4/8/16 ohms and PT is selectable for US 120vac as well as 220,230,240v for Europe.

Each amp I personally hand build with the best NOS and current production as well as choice selected surplus parts. Chassis is spot welded aluminum. NOS Tube sockets,
CTS pots, heavy duty switches and fuse holders. Turret boards are fabricated in house. NOS film/foil Mallory caps are used and F & T or JJ filter capacitors.
Each Classic 45 is faithfully assembled as an original.  Let the pictures do the talking!

Classic 45 ships with Tung Sol 5881 or TAD KT-66 and Mullard reissue 12AX7’s.
