BRITISH 18 WATT COMBO PERFECTED
There is a great tradition of EL84 powered 12 to 18 watt combos made in the UK starting in the late 1950s. In fact, there is a book written about it. Although there were many from different manufacturers, there are three that really stand out. One is the VOX AC15. It is perfect in it's design and an amazing amplifier for it's sound and unique Vib/Trem circuit. Another great EL84 based amplifier is the Watkins Dominator. It really shines with its throaty overdriven sound and smooth tremolo circuit. The third is the Marshall 18 watter which has become legendary. It was based on the Watkins but brought it to higher level of aggressive Rock sound. It’s got the grind of the bigger Marshalls but in a smaller package.
The Park P1800 is based on the Watkins (and Marshall 18) but brings it to a new level of beautiful clean and aggressive rock sounds. Carefully built with New Old Stock capacitors and resistors, an output transformer built in the UK to the exact specifications and sound quality as the original Radio Spares EL84 output transformer. It also features EC Collins Park style reissue white pinstripe grill cloth and a custom speaker that uses a celestion Blue alnico frame and magnet as its base but with a different cone that truly is in a class of its own.
The basic specifications of the Park 18 include:
Two channels each with Volume and Tone controls. voiced slightly differently
One channel has a rich tremolo circuit with Speed and Intensity controls
Two speaker outputs with a switch for 8 and 16 ohms
Foot switch for tremolo is included and is plugged into a jack on the chassis bottom
