It's so easy to fall in love with a low-wattage tube amp, because you can get all of that smooth tube saturation without blowing the walls to pieces. This 10-watt Milkman Pint is a blackface-style boutique amp loud enough to use in a band context. It'll be suitable for home use too!
High-end, boutique clean amps have been very popular in the guitar community recently, and this is largely due to companies such as Milkman. No one can really resist a hand-wired Class A clean amp.
Headroom For Pedals
10 watts is probably the perfect size for a valve amp with a 12" speaker. You can get away with using high-gain drive pedals or compressors into the front-end because of the 10W headroom.
The Pint reacts to any dynamic changes, so you can really let your fingers do the talking. It ends up being suitable for a variety of genres including blues rock, country, surf, or even jazz.
The tremolo is subtle but easy to use without cutting the volume of your guitar as most tremolos do. You also won't lose tonal clarity when it's engaged!
Here's what Milkman says about the Pint Combo:
The Pint is a brand new Milkman model designed to add a little bit more power to the low power Half Pint circuit. A custom Mercury Magnetics output transformer allows for parallel single ended 6V6 output. The Pint delivers 10 clean watts and 18 snarling overdriven watts when the amp is pushed all the way. Like its little brother, reverb and tremolo and Class A single ended breakup is the name of the game.
How about touch sensitivity and feel? The 5Y3 rectifier coupled with true class A design make the Pint the most touch sensitive Milkman amplifier to date. A pair of 6V6 running in a single ended design piles on scoop after scoop of creamy even order harmonics.
The front end is similar to the Half Pint, with extended headroom, lush spring reverb, and deep output modulating tremolo. The amplifier is hand wired onto a turret board with Mercury Magnetics and Jupiter capacitors standard.
The Celestion Greenback 12" is a transparent sounding speaker. Bright, Lively, and efficient. This speaker has a big bottom even at low volume. This speaker has very little breakup and does not color the amp when driven.
