"MENHiR one twelve" combo guitar amp

The MENHiR is an "all-tube sound" combo guitar amp. It is the result of a project which designed and implemented for the legendary blues guitarist Elias Zaikos (Blues Wire). The amp offers 27 watts in 6L6 configuration or 20 watt in 6V6 configuration, of classic remarkable guitar tone and lush harmonics, in a class A push pull design. Its excellent touch sensitivity acts as a helping hand for guitarist. Features include 2 x 6L6GC / or 2x 6V6GT output tubes, one 5AR4 / GZ34 rectifier tube, 1 x 12AY7, 1x12AX7 preamp tubes, one 12” 8 ohm Jensen® , or Celestion®  speaker. Every MENHiR amplifier is hand-built in Thessaloniki, Greece. Each MENHiR cabinet is constructed of 21mm birch plywood known for its superb resonance. The amp is hand-wired using high quality electronic parts. Paper layer wound like the vintage era originals, output transformer and premium materials. Every MENHiR is a unique amp. We test and tweak each amp separately, one by one.
