BRITISH 18 WATT COMBO PERFECTED

There is a great tradition of EL84 powered 12 to 18 watt combos made in the UK starting in the late 1950s. In fact, there is a book written about it. Although there were many from different manufacturers, there are three that really stand out.  One is the VOX AC15. It is perfect in it’s design and an amazing amplifier for it’s sound and unique Vib/Trem circuit. Another great EL84 based amplifier is the Watkins Dominator. It really shines with its throaty overdriven sound and smooth tremolo circuit. The third is the Marshall 18 watter which has become legendary. It was based on the Watkins but brought it to higher level of aggressive Rock sound. It’s got the grind of the bigger Marshalls but in a smaller package.

The Park P1800 is based on the Watkins (and Marshall 18) but brings it to a new level of beautiful clean and aggressive rock sounds. Carefully built with New Old Stock capacitors and resistors, an output transformer built in the UK to the exact specifications and sound quality as the original Radio Spares EL84 output transformer. It also features EC Collins Park style reissue white pinstripe grill cloth and a custom speaker that uses a celestion Blue alnico frame and magnet as its base but with a different cone that truly is in a class of its own.

The P1800 was introduced at the summer NAMM show in June, 2018 to rave reviews by guitarists, friends, press and even amp builders and competitors.

UPDATE: The P1800 now includes the new added features of the P1800HiLo head including a switch to cascade the channels for more gain (and tonal options) and a Super Lo mode that switches the power down to 1 or 1/2 watt.
