A unique approach to small head design

Most of the other Park amps offered today are recreations of vintage designs. The Park Little Head 18 is something new. While most vintage 18-20 watt tube amps were originally built as lower cost practice amps and cheaper alternatives to professional amps, the Park Little Head 18 is built with the same hand-wired care, high quality parts, tone-full circuit and attention to detail as its bigger brothers.

Most of the other Park amps offered today are recreations of vintage designs. The Park Little Head 18 is something new. While most vintage 18-20 watt tube amps were originally built as lower cost practice amps and cheaper alternatives to professional amps, the Park Little Head 18 is built with the same hand-wired care, high quality parts, tone-full circuit and attention to detail as its bigger brothers. The Park Little Head 18 features the same preamp as the Park 45, the same cathode follower driven tone stack (as found in the Fender tweed 4x10 Bassman, high powered tweed Twin and just about every M style amp, originally derived from the Western Electric circuit), a super-variable power amp capable of using a number of octal based power amp tubes and an octal based rectifier tube socket that can use various tube and solid state rectifiers. It is capable of beautiful, sparkling clean tones, overdriven blues from a hint of OD to full-blown OD and classic rock tones, all at a level that won’t blow the doors of your bedroom, studio or small club. Don’t let the size or power rating of the Park Little Head fool you; this is a full featured, big tone, professional guitar amplifier with no compromise in the low end.

ABOUT PARK AMPS
Park amps are newly manufactured guitar amps that faithfully recreate the sound, feel and look of some of the best British made amps from the 1960s and 1970s. The first available amps use the traditional 45 and 50 circuits that have been made classic on so many of the best blues and rock recordings from the 1960s through the present. The man behind Park is Mitch Colby who had a 30 year relationship with two of the most iconic British amp companies. After a long career with Unicord and Korg USA, the exclusive US distributors of Marshall and VOX, he started Colby Amplification in 2012. Park became part of Colby in 2013. Mitch has since introduced a few models of Colby and Park amps that have already been added to the tone arsenals of collectors, tone aficionados and touring artists alike. Park amps are built the same way they were in the 1960s and 1970s; hand built to perfection. Only high quality new and NOS parts are incorporated for reliability and tone, The tried and true tube circuits have been very carefully recreated so that the entire experience between the guitarist, guitar and amp is enhanced.
