The Ceriatone British Style 2202HW is a low wattage, feature-laden champion of tone and value.
The 2202HW started with the preamp of our 2203HW and 2204HW, but we added some features to make a timeless design even more flexible.
In the preamp, we added a 3-way Bright switch, which not only helps dial in the high frequency content, but also adds another means of sculpting the gain structure of the amplifier. Next, we added a powerful Boost switch, which defeats the tonestack and adds some serious gain and harmonic complexity. If that wasn’t enough, we added a Fat switch that was inspired by our OTS series. This changes the frequency of the Treble control, vastly thickening the midrange.
The power amp wasn’t safe either. We added a specially tuned Resonance control to help add thump and authority. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we added a Post-Phase Inverter Master Volume that is so good, you can sell your attenuators for MOAR AMPSZ.
Oh, we can’t forget to mention this is all in a small chassis using 6V6s to put out a rotund 20W of power.
Like other Ceriatone amps, we have labored carefully to select the finest components to suit the design, and the 2202HW 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 using the highest quality components and custom wound transformers. Each amp is thoroughly tested and burned in before it is shipped to you. Even with long lead times (due to a large number of guitarists ordering Ceriatone amps and the Covid-19 pandemic), Ceriatone will take no shortcuts or change their build standards in the production of their hand-built amps. Lead times listed are approximate.
Current lead times are listed on the main page at www.guitarampsusa.com and are approximate.
