Up for sale, a 2019 Hovercraft Caribou 50 "Stage 0" tube amplifier head in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Handmade in the USA, the Caribou 50 is Hovercraft's primary platform for a number of circuit variations, with this particular Caribou being the Stage 0 GS Circuit model, offering two channels of clean and crunch, with some "truly saucy thick gain tones" according to the manufacturer. The amp drives a pair of EL34 power tubes, generating a robust 50 watts.
This is a two channel amp with switchable tone stack architecture (changing from two knob baxandall to the omnipresent Treble, Middle, Bass three knob type), 1/2 Power Switch, and speaker outputs from 16 to 4 ohms. The tube complement includes a pair of matched EL34 power tubes and a trio of preamp tubes, all stamped with the Hovercraft name over the factory branding.
The white tolex is clean and bright, with just a few faint scuffs on the edges of the enclosure. The face is remarkably clean, with pristine print and all of the original white Davies 1470-style knobs intact.
