Inside the New York Amp Show
With Snake Skin Tolex and a black grill cloth, Retro-King’s 18-Watt Combo definitely
turned heads. A replica of Marshall’s 1966 18-watt lead combo, this amp is completely custom built and sounds amazing. Featuring two channels/four inputs, EL84 power
tubes and 1 NOS EZ81 preamp tube, this combo will take you back in time.
A player stomps his way through 33 pedals from a wide variety of manufacturers,
including Analog Man, Zvex, Mad Professor, Keeley, HipKitty and Voodoo Lab. The
entire run was powered by two 1-Spots from Visual Sound. Completely wired with
Solid Cables and using as many true bypass pedals as possible, the Pedalboard from
Hell produced relatively little tone suck.
