Retro-King Intros 18 Watt Combo Amp

Retro-King has introduced the 18-Watt Combo, the latest addition to its collection of hand-wired custom amps.

A class AB cathode biased amp, the “18 Watt Combo” is a replica of the hard to find, 1966 Marshall 18 watt lead combo amplifier with two channels (4 inputs) with a tremolo unit operating on channel two.

Retro-King Amps are hand built by Chuck Dean, a guitar player for most of his life who has owned most of the best amps made during the 50’s and 60’s. Chuck builds these amps with the same quality and tone as you would expect from these great amps, at a fraction of the cost of the originals.
