65amps introduces its new Red Line of amplifiers with the first model in the series, the London Pro. Like its brother, the original 65amps London, the low-powered but extremely toneful London Pro tube amp is hand made in the USA, and takes advantage of 65amps’ renowned expertise in small amps with big feel and tone.
With the Red Line, 65amps now offers its high quality construction and tone to working guitar players at a more accessible price than the 65amps Blue Line models. Powered by 2xEL84s, the 18-Watt tube rectified London Pro offers two distinct channels – the EF86 Colour Channel and the 12AX7 Channel.
New on the London Pro, these two channels can be combined for a third, high-gain option. When the channels are combined, the volume and tone knobs on each distinct channel now control the gain and tone for just the tubes on the channel they are assigned to, allowing extreme tonal versatility. All channels can be controlled by the included footswitch.
65amps also has included its unique Master Voltage feature, which reduces the voltage and output of the amp in a unique way that enables the amp to be played at extremely low volumes without losing its rich tone and feel. The London Pro is housed in a streamlined head constructed from void free Baltic birch. It is equipped with handmade American transformers, and sports a new red badge logo.

This amp is in as new condition. It has no marks, scratches, dings, dents or love-bites. It has lived its short life in a protected, smoke free environment in a vault with some other high end amps and guitars, and a password protected entry. Only kidding ….. the bottom line is this amp has never seen active duty on the front lines of live rock. Which is a shame because it deserves to be heard.
Fabulous, rich Voxy tones mixed with USA cascading overdrive and everything in between if you want. Very tonally sophisticated – so sweet for studio & recording applications, but totally up for live work. No problem keeping up with your loud drummer – the London Pro will cut right through the mix with a range of options from clean, chimey clarity to overdriven saturation at the touch of your footswitch.
This one has its original 110 volt wiring so it requires a step down transformer, which is not included in the sale. Easily available at approx $80.
