The Ceriatone Custom, hand-built tribute to the Matchless Lightning boutique guitar amplifier. Shown above is Lunchbox in custom White tolex ($75 option). Comes standard in black tolex. Also the Passive Effects Loop is an option.
The tone controls are interactive and dynamic. The tonal palate is amazing and the volume (for a 15 watt amp) is astounding. The interactive tone controls influence each other in a very dynamic way and pull each other’s range and reach up and down. Actual tonal possibilities are very extensive and it produces loud output volumes not normally associated with a 15 watt rating.
The single channel preamp with its interactive tone controls is coupled to a serious dual-EL84 power section with a tube rectifier. All models have active EQ to attain an excellent array of complex tones. User controls include Volume, Interactive Bass & Treble, and Master Volume.
