This is a two channel amp based on a modern classic, the Matchless DC30. It's been scaled down to 15 watts but it still delivers that powerful and chimy tone from the Vox amps that inspired the DC30. The chassis, eyelet board, faceplate and parts came from Trinity Amps in Toronto. Their TC-15 is a great amp so why re-invent the wheel? Mitch did the assembly and built the cabinet from scratch, though.
