The original British powerhouse that shook the world
When this amp launched in a tiny London club in September 1963 it changed the world, and we still can’t get enough.
Favored by blues and rock players for its exceptional sustain, the '62 Brit-Plex is chock-full of harmonic gain, with a thick but focused midrange that refuses to get sloppy or lost in the mix. Put this head on a classic 4x12 cab and watch out!
Just listen to the raw power Angus Young gets on "High Voltage" to hear how commanding this amp can be. The '62 Brit-Plex is the original sound of classic rock, and has a virtually unlimited suite of tones that can be dialed in with ease.
StewMac has lovingly recreated this timeless amplifier in our '62 Brit-Plex Amp Kit. This is one of our Icon Kits: modern reproductions of vintage classics.
