The Ugly 18 head is a 2-channel, 18 watt, dual 12AX7/EL84 tube amplifier.
Its circuit has evolved over time through the requests of some of my better clients and can be custom voiced to meet your own tastes. Normal channel has a fat clean tone, but breaks up in more of a british way, with no flubby bottom end.
This channel also has a simple tone control.

The bright channel has been renamed to the Tight channel with just a single knob to control it, a midrange bark that breaks up
evenly with even tighter lows and more gain in the mids. These two channels are meant to be jumped or bridged.
This Amp really opens up with all the knobs available!

18-20 watts output
2 x 12AX7 Preamp Tubes and 2 x EL84 Output Tubes
Normal Channel -Controls for Volume, Tone
Tight Channel – Control for Volume only
