The Tobacco Barn Tone Monster


This incredible amp is now sold.

Only five units were built for the world – one each for North America, Europe, Great Britain, Japan, and Australia. This was the only UK Voltage Version so is an incredible collectors piece!


Fender 1950s circuitry, century-old barn wood, and a new 15” speaker? Pure magic.

Somewhere along the Maryland-Pennsylvania border (A.K.A. “The Mason Dixon Line”) an old 1890s-era tobacco drying barn was carefully disassembled. Pieces were hand selected to build five unique Custom Shop Masterbuilt amplifiers with exceptional tone.
