For all you Clean players, we didn’t leave you out!
The Little Rascal is our low-wattage Class-A combo. At 18 watts, she is perfect for getting the verge of break-up tones at gigging levels. We wont take full credit for this one however. The power amp is very similar to that of a Match-less type. It wasn’t on purpose but after a lot of tweaking and trying different ideas, the values of their design was just superior. It is hard to do much different on a Class A power amp as its such a simple circuit.
The Preamp is a different story! We started with our Little Devil circuit and reduced the passed signal to allow more headroom. The Little Devil offered such a beautiful and full clean tone at lower gain, we HAD to find a way to offer it as an option. We removed the initial 2 gain stages of the Little Devil and replaced them with a single Pentode stage which reduced the level of overdrive drastically. The result was a BEAUTIFUL rich full driven Clean tone. Making it absolutely perfect for a pedal platform.
The Little Rascal sports a Birch dovetailed cabinet with Western Saddle tolex and a Flamed Maple Face. Coupled with the WGS Veteran 30 12″ speaker, it is a force to be reckoned with.
- Additional “Balls” switch on rear offers an added punch!

Over All Construction
The cabinet is offered in tolex wrapped, Dovetailed 3/4″ birch with Flamed Maple face. The finish is remarkable and extremely durable for life on the road. The Front and Rear panels are custom made in the USA with anodized aluminum. The lettering is etched in to the plates so, they will not Wipe off over time like other amps. We painstakingly chose every component in the amplifier; from the custom wound transformers to the low noise Metal Film resistors. We spare no expense! but don’t worry, as you can tell we didn’t jack the price up stupid like our competitors!
Available with Flame Mod!
