Yes, isn't that the truth. Rarely anyone hauls around Ford F-250's full of 4x12's to a backyard gig around anymore, why can't Marshall heads get smaller? Ton's of dead space in those heads that don't serve any purpose but to add weight and take up room in my vehicle. I would also ask why must the trannys usually end up near the same side making for a lopsided piece of gear. That's a tech question that probably has a reason but we can go to the moon? sheesh. Thanks my friend, Good to hear from you, I might hit up Gilmour.You’ve asked for something that’s actually rare in amp land. Lol.
Hey Tele, that's a monster combo, very cool. TopHat yea, I use to own a 50 Emplexador that was very vintage sounding as I recall. It's been many years but maybe I should look into them again. I had a tech add a loop in mine as it had space designated for the jacks. We (my tech) called TopHat and got great help from them while installing it. Great guy's over there! Ok, I'll look for him in the forum when I get sorted out, thank you for the input!TopHat 50w Emplexador Junior Classic 1x12. The same exact iron as a full-on 50w Emplexador head.
Delivers the goods x10. However, no effects loop (Brian G. has never been a fan of effects loops in his amps). You'll thank me later.
By the way, Brian Gerhard is now an active member of TGP. If you have questions, you may want to hit him up. He has a recent thread in the Builders & Retailers Forum. Look for @Mr. TopHat. The man builds some pretty special stuff (I currently own 7 and have owned 18 or 19 TopHats since buying my first one in 1998).
That sounds great! It's out of my price range but good info nonetheless...love that small box.Love my Blankenship amps. This will likely be my next purchase. You can get a 120w or 170w version. Comes in a small headshell as well.
I'm speechless! and I'm salivating...if I was to find a 50 watt Plexi or JCM this size, I would close up shop, Take the Turkey out of the oven, Put the last nail in the coffin...well you get the idea.
Thank you, I actually live near him. Great guy too. Took a one off he built in for service years ago. Another guy I need to look back into! Thanks for the reminder!
Yup, This is incredibly cool. Out of my price range, especially if I ask for a loop and master but I'm playing Lotto...never know!Alessandro's stuff has the best volume to weight/size of anything I've seen. I had a Bloodhound, 2 6550s for maybe 70s clean watts. I don't need that kind of volume so I traded it for a 4XEL84 version. The only problem is no effects loop. You might want to talk to George about whether he'd do something for you. It'll cost a bit, though.

Those new Emplex junior models look sweet. It would be hard to pick between the classic and the higher gain model.T-
Brian took the 50w Emplex and is now able to do it in either a small chassis head, 1x12 or 2x12 combo. His amps are better than ever. I have three Emplexadors - including a script logo circuit 50w head. He can do the Emplex Junior in Classic format (vintage side), High Gain (modern side) or as a full-on version that includes both sides. Brilliant amp in a small box/cab format.
The 1x12 Junior Classic could easily be a "desert island" amp. And as those of us that have been around long enough know, Brian has been knocking it out of the park for 25 years as a British amp circuit guru. The Emplex, King Royale and Club Royale are simply great amps that are fit for any pro stage. I have them all, along with a couple others that are crazy-great.
It's cool that Brian has decided to participate on TGP. His knowledge is second to none, and he'll be a great resource here as he learns the TGP ropes.
Good luck with your search!
