Chris’ SE-5a

With its dovetail-jointed cabinet in English oak, Chris’ PP-18 looks fantastic and undeniably classy. I love figured wood and the oak here has light flaming to contrast against the tight grain. No need to overdo the finish: “five coats of beeswax”, says Chris. “It takes pedals better than any other amp I have tried and still stays very quiet and hum free. Through a 4×12 and pushed with a Digitech SC2 it sounded absolutely huge.”
