If you are after the ultimate point-to-point wired gigging head, the Milkman Dairy Air is what you need. Rated at around 30W of power, this small and lightweight head is perfect for those that do fly dates but don't want to rely on the house amp for anything other than speakers. Built to the same standards as all Milkman amps, it is loud with plenty of headroom, meaning clean tones even at gigging volumes.
Versatile Little Tone Machine
The joy of the Dairy Air is how much you can do with such a small amplifier. Rated at 30W-40W with 6L6 power amp tubes, the Dairy Air is a high headroom clean amp that is extremely dynamic and takes any kind of pedals and effects you would use very well. This means that no matter what style you play, with the right pedals this thing can sound absolutely amazing.
Out of the box with no added effects, you get sweet and smooth American-style clean tones that are really clear and can push through a lot of different mixes. Even if you don't add any pedals, this is still some of the best giggable clean tones that you will find in an amp this size.
Simply Great Tones
While a lot of other Milkman amps are fitted with reverb and tremolo circuits, the Dairy Air throws those out in favour of more space. This gives you a more potent power amp that makes this 15lbs amp entirely giggable in almost any situation. Instead, it just has a simple Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass control setup and a pair of inputs to match your guitar's output to the amp.
Here's what Milkman says about the Dairy Air 30w Head:
The 30 watt Dairy Air was designed to be portable, versatile, and extremely simple. There is no reverb or tremolo option, which means I was able to fit a lot of power into a very small head cabinet. The idea is that if you travel by air, you can take this amplifier with you and use any speaker. Need a backline amp but don't like the tone- Take the lead from the internal speaker and plug it into your 30W head. Done. Take your tone with you!
The Dairy Air is built with the same high quality components as every other Milkman amplifier: Mercury Magnetics, Jupiter Capacitors, Carbon Composition Resistors - its all in there! I designed a custom aluminum chassis in order to make sure I could fit in all the best components. Every point is wired by hand, onto a custom made turret board, with cloth covered wire. Building an amp this way makes it very hard to damage, and very easy to service - you could bungee this thing to the outside of the airplane and still make your gig. (note: don't try that)
