There is something very familiar about plugging into an American 40W clean amp with 6L6 tubes. The Pedal Steel Mini is like the best 40W clean amp on steroids. A real boutique-style beauty!
If you aren't familiar with it, then I can tell you that this is the recipe for the ultimate pedal-lovers amp. It's a fantastic tonal foundation for loads of different pedals (from distortion to wah) because it has such good clean headroom.
Milkman rate their amps by how much clean headroom you get before the amp starts breaking up. 40W will easily be loud enough for your next gig!
I won't get all tech-y by trying to explain the grid-biased output section, but what you need to know is that the 6L6 tubes that Milkman use will give you that American-style clean that everyone loves, without the amp breaking up at low volumes.
Having the amp grid-biased with 6L6 tubes will give your tone that extra sparkle in the top end, and more low end punch when you need it.
Jupiter Ceramic Speaker
This Pedal Steel Mini amp has been fitted with a Jupiter ceramic speaker, offering a smooth top-end and a vibrant mid-range. Also projecting warm lows, this speaker really lends itself to blues playing, and to guitarists looking for a rich, creamy tone.
Not Too Heavy
The Pedal Steel Mini is made to be a clean amp. So its great for country, jazz and blues, but it will go into a sweet-sustaining overdrive when pushed loud enough. Great for those Mayer-esque solos!
It's light enough to gig with too. Physically, it's the same size as the Milkman creamer, so will comfortably fit into the boot of your car. You also won't need to hire a road crew just to carry it to and from the stage for you!
Here's what Milkman says about the Pedal Steel Mini:
This is a compact lightweight version of the Milkman 85W Pedal Steel Amplifier. Boasting 40W, the amp has half the power - nearly half the weight - but the same full tone as its big brother. This means you can crank the amp up to the sweet spot without tearing the paint off the walls, and easily bring the amp to the gig without tearing the muscles in your arm.
The Mini is able to harness the power of a pair of 6L6 output tubes by driving them with a long tail phase inverter. The output section is grid biased, and has a large amount of negative feedback for extra high headroom. Its the same physical size and weight as the Creamer, but the tone has a bit more punch and sparkle on the top end because of the different power section and amp voicing.
The Pedal Steel Mini is one of the most unique amplifiers on the market today. Nothing is sacrificed in order to get this much tone into a small package. The chassis is hand wired onto a turret board using Jupiter capacitors and Mercury Magnetics transformers. The tube reverb section is deep and powerful with the additional tone control, and whether you are playing the amp clean or broken up, the sound is 3 dimensional. You won't believe how big this amp thinks it is!
