The Ceriatone Yeti 50 was the second offering in our Hot Rodded Plexi series, and provides a relevant alternative to our Chupacabra.

While still a nod to Jose Arredondo-modified circuits of the late ‘70s and ‘80s, the Yeti is smoother, less compressed, and has more of an upper-mids emphasis than the Chupacabra.  Tonally, it’s perhaps a bit more “classic”, although still has the capacity for very modern tones.

As with the Chupacabra, part of what makes the Yeti so fun to play is its ability to dial in KILLER tones from all sorts of types of music in a simple format, all the while maintaining its own voice and integrity.

Like other Ceriatone amps, we have labored carefully to select the finest components to suit the design, and the Yeti uses our specially designed, custom transformers for superior reliability, frequency response, and feel.

Ceriatone amps are custom made, 100% hand-built, point to point hand-wired amplifiers. Each amp is thoroughly tested and burned in before it is shipped to you. For this reason, the build lead time is approx. 11-14 weeks for custom hand-built amplifiers and 5-10 days for pedals and buffered effects loops.

Pricing shown on includes the shipping cost to the USA only. We only ship to the USA, Canada and Mexico. Shipping to Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands will have additional shipping. We'll invoice the difference in shipping and it is due at the time the order is placed.

Note: We ONLY ship to PayPal verified addresses if paying via PayPal. No exceptions.
