Milkman Sound 5W Half Pint Amp Head (New Moon Walnut) and 2x12" Ceramic Jupiter Cabinet (Vanilla Tolex)
Milkman Sound 5W Half Pint Amp Head, New Moon Walnut
The Half Pint was designed to be the most versatile low power amplifier possible. Reverb and tremolo and Class A single ended breakup are just the start of what this little amp can do. With the onboard voltage controlled power scaling, you can turn this amp up to 10 and dial it back to just a fraction of a watt so that your fun zone is volume appropriate for just about anywhere.
This amp is comfortable on stage, in studio, and at home. Because of the variable power, you can set it how you like and adjust the power level for the room.
The power section of this amplifier consists of a single 6V6 power tube biased to class A. The front end is similar to the Creamer, with extended headroom reverb and tremolo. The amplifier is hand wired onto a turret board with Mercury Magnetics and Jupiter capacitors are standard equipment.
- Tube tremolo and spring reverb
- Includes handwired original design detachable footswitch and 15' cable

The Milkman 85W Amplifier is the flagship of the Milkman line. It has unparalleled headroom, feel, and tone. Whether you are using it for steel guitar, or 6 string guitar, this amplifier is going to sing for you. Playing this amplifier is like fingerprinting with electricity. The responsiveness and clarity of your instrument will change the way you think about tone forever.
I originally designed this amplifier to use with my pedal steel guitar. I needed an amplifier to capture the full bandwith of the steel guitar. As it so happens, the amplifier became very popular with 6 string guitar players as well. It turns out a great steel guitar amplifier makes an incredible guitar amplifier!
The 85W is conservatively named. With a strong quad of 6L6 output tubes this amp can easily knock out 115W. Your brain will go into distortion before the amplifier does.
On top of the giant clean power supply and honey sweet EQ section there is a 3 knob tube reverb system. The added reverb controls allow for an enormous range of reverb sounds, and since the output of the amp is very clear and detailed, you can get into tone territory that is like an extension of your thoughts. The 85W Pedal Steel Amplifier is hand wired onto a turret board with Mercury Magnetics transformers and Jupiter capacitors.
