The amp that must be heard to be believed.
8 Watts Class A. Typically used with vintage tubes.
Must be used with 32ohm matching cab, loaded with vintage Celestions. Using with other cabs will produce inferior results.
This is the only blue tolex of this color in the world.
Only 40 or so Lockard amps were produced, using all vintage parts. Amp was then rewired and refined by a famous Los Angeles amp guru to greatly improve eq and sonics. Cabinets are awesome. Nothing else sounds like this amp. Three years of research & development before the first production model was created. This amplifier was created with a passion for tone, with no intention of making a profit. The creation of Lockard amps was a money losing situation from the start, not a business, which was always hard to convey to people.
This is loud, powerful, class A vintage tube saturation at its finest. Would Jimmy Page have used this on a Zeppelin recording? He probably would have. Extremely articulate and in your face.
I have played Lockard amps for hundreds and hundreds of hours, for years, very late at night, at full volume. I would have to say that these amps possess the greatest of all characteristics - you just can't stop playing, you get lost in the tone, you are amazed at the tone. You put the guitar down and realize hours have passed, time & time again. This is that amp.
