2023 3rd Power Wooly Coats Spanky Jr. 6VEL 1x10 Tube Combo Amp 5 Watt

$1,549.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 3rd Power Wooly Coats Spanky Jr. 6VEL 1x10” combo in near-mint condition and in perfect working order. This single-ended, cathode biased Class-A combo delivers pristine ‘50s and ‘60s-style Fender cleans, designed for maximal headroom. Rated at 5 watts, the compact, portable Spanky Jr 6VEL features an overbuilt power supply including the exact higher current power transformer used in 3P’s 20W Spanky MKII+, ensuring plenty of punch and headroom for any low volume gig or recording environment.

The single channel design has Hi/Low inputs, and the simple controls belie a wide array of tonalities, with a three-band EQ and onboard spring reverb. The switchable Mid-Boost (also taken from the Spanky MKII+) pushes the amp to creamy edge-of-breakup territory when the Volume is dialed up, by bypassing the tone controls for optimal sustain and grit.

The Spanky Jr. 6VEL is made by hand using FR4 board material, sourced raw and drilled in-house, with hand-placed and swaged turrets. Naturally, the circuit is hand-wired, with hand-picked components and wire tails. The 6VEL technology enables this amp to operate with a variety of power tubes, and this Spanky Jr. is currently loaded with an EHX 6V6 with a JJ 5Y3S rectifier and a pair of MESA 12AX7s in the preamp section. The speaker is a Warehouse British Invasion ET10, rated at 65 watts, delivering a (as the name would imply) British-flavored tone with pronounced mids and warm-yet-tight lows, ensuring smooth trebles that complement the American-style circuit very well.

Aesthetically evoking a Black Panel Fender, cosmetic touches include black tolex, silver grillcloth, a vintage-style jewel LED, premium leather handle, and barrel knobs. There's barely a mark on the amp.
