JUST IN: Check out Dave Hunter's review of Down Brownie in Guitar Player Magazine HERE!

The Penguin -Amp™ is a faithful recreation of the much-loved Brown Princeton 6G2 from Cutthroat Audio. Dressed in the black/white "tuxedo" livery of the 63 and later Princetons, it's all "Brown" under the hood.

Although it is a single channel amp, the pre-amp has two distinctive voices. The normal voicing is pure 6G2 Brown goodness. Pull the volume knob and the JMP-50 voicing is engaged for a decidedly more British tone.

This old-school build uses Mercury Magnetics iron, Weber Alnico 10A125-P, Rich II Mod PPIMV, push/pull volume & tone pots for channel "voicing" and bright cap "lift", switchable tube/SS rectifier, switchable 6G2/5E3/JTM45 negative feedback, and adjustable bias trim pot.

A full and complete description of the Penguin -Amp™ is here. $1895 + shipping, fully equipped.

Sound clips here.

Lead time is currently 4-6 weeks.













Check out the Penguin -Amp's big brother:

Down Brownie™ is a faithful recreation of the revered Brown Deluxe 6G3 from Cutthroat Audio. Not a kit, and not your father's 6G3, as the saying goes (well, sort of).

This old-school build "mini-Marshall" has a British and Brown channel, Mercury Magnetics iron, Weber Alnico 12A125-S, Rich II Mod PPIMV, push/pull pots for channel "jumpering" and bright cap "lift", switchable tube/SS rectifier, switchable 6G3/5E3/JTM45 negative feedback, 4/8/16 ohm selectors and adjustable bias trim pot.

A full and complete description of the Down Brownie™ is here. $2195 + shipping, fully equipped.

Several threads here on TGP with lots of owner comments. Lead time is currently 4-6 weeks.

Check out this killer demo by Keith Nelson. Tele/LP/LP Jr.; Left/Center/Right through a stock DB. This one really rocks:

Love my Down Brownie. No doubt the new Penguin-Amp is equally kick a$$. Great job on these models, Ron. Great looks and the sounds are sure there.
