Kingston 30 - Chicago Blues Box

You've got to love a PURPLE amp! 


Color aside (but clearly a bonus),  this amp is all creamy, punchy, tone.  At 30 watts there is plenty of headroom to keep it clean well past midnight, yet comes with effective Boost to drive a little earlier at reasonable volume levels.

All tube, all hand wired, point-to-point circuitry, the guys at Chicago Blues Box have built a better mouse trap. Dan Butler of Butler Custom Design was chosen by Buddy Guy to create his Chicago Blues Box '59 Bassman reproduction model.  This guys has got it down and my gut is telling me the days for buying these amps new are numbered.  GET THIS ONE with less than 12 hours play on it.  I bought it in December 2005 from Juniors Music in Clinton CT and have not put as much as a ding in this baby.  Call me for adoption process.
