Classic Late '50s Tweed into Mid '60s Plexi, based on the 1959 Tweed Twin.

The KR12 is an EL34-based, single 12" combo. It is the result of Louis Rosano's longstanding work with Hubert Sumlin and Keith Richards. The KR12's four inputs offer different levels of gain from crisp, crunchy throatiness to a hefty vintage rock bark.

Based on the Louis Electrinc M12 used by Sumlin, the KR12 has several gain options and unmatched headroom, but preserves the warmth of a 1950's and 1960's vintage style amp. The KR12 has Volume and Master Volume controls, middle, treble, bass plus Presence. And, lurking on the underside of the chasis, a little Damping knob which adjusts the level of negative feedback which is an excellent feature to have because most amplifiers only offer fixed resistor which limits tone shaping.
