Originally released in 2013, these mini amps were previously discontinued. They are now back in the Milkman catalog and available exclusively in the US from Vision Guitar, and also from Deluxe Guitars in Australia.
The amplifier head consists of a 5 watt class A 6V6 based circuit with a simple 12AX7 preamp. There is one input on the front with controls for volume and tone. The circuit is hand wired point to point style with no circuit board and minimal wire. Because of its extra small size, the circuit must be built this way. The circuit has no negative feedback and therefore breaks up at a moderate volume for home or studio use.
Included with the head is a ported 8ohm speaker cabinet with 8” Jupiter ceramic magnet speaker inside. This cabinet sounds huge, even though its only 10” by 10”.
The mini head can power any 8 ohm speaker cabinet, and has that classic class A crunch when you push the volume. Sparkly and punchy clean tones turn into thick distortion and lead tones when the amp begins to saturate.

When the One Watt showed up at my door in May of this year (2014), I was immediately impressed. The craftsmanship was great and this thing just looked awesome! I grabbed my favorite guitar and plugged it in and was floored. The clarity at low volumes was something I hadn’t experienced with my other amps. At higher volumes, this thing just rocks!
Absolutely incredible amp. Can't believe how light it is too. The power is unbelievable. Tone is unreal - best thing I've ever played - crystal clear.

This amp is meaner and screamier than most amps double its size. Killer look, awesome sound. This puppy is a rocker!
