Looking for a great little Tube Combo Amp with quality sound and durable construction? Look no further  than the handwired Nathan Jr. from Portland Amp Builder Chris Benson....

From Chris Benson :

  "Nathan Junior is our long time demo guitarist, a veteran of Portland indie rock, and now a non-profit organizer. Part of the proceeds for every Nathan Junior is going directly to Musical Independence - a non-profit organization in the small town of Independence OR whose mission is to provide much needed music lessons to citizens of all walks of life. Nathan has a building, a plan, and years of both teaching and music business experience.

We wanted to hit a different price point with the Nathan Junior amp…instead of our usual Mercury transformers/Jupiter capacitors combination we found some domestically produced components that sound fantastic and fit the form factor better. For 5 watts in a tiny package, it sounds shockingly big. We think it’s the perfect grab and go recording/ small gig combo."
