Merino Combo

$1,750.00

The 20-watt Merino recalls beloved tweed tones, providing a versatile platform for a wide variety of playing styles. The Merino is our modified take on an often overlooked classic design, the Harvard 5F10. This combo is cleaner at high volumes than most small tweed-style amps, yet once it reaches the threshold of overdrive, it has more drive on tap than you’d expect. With a very useful and simple set of volume and tone controls, your ideal sound can be achieved in seconds, allowing you to get back to playing music. The Merino is also a fantastic pedal platform.

Our recommended stock speaker for the Merino is the WGS G12C. If you have questions about other options or are unsure of which speaker would be best for you, please contact us with details about your setup and playing style so we can recommend the speaker that would best suit your needs.

Slide "Thanks so very much for responding. I spent some time with the amp… beautiful …beautiful sounding amp. I thought I had some great cleans on some other amps... which can now not ever be considered as great cleans to me anymore! Good work!"

- Craig M.
Slide "Hey Daniel, just thought I might let you know that I've been loving the amp so far. Your workmanship is truly incredible and you make spectacular equipment. Your amps look as beautiful they sound. Cheers."

Slide "I'm sure you hear this all the time but I can hardly believe how absolutely incredible this thing sounds!!! It is so articulate and responsive. This is what I have always wanted an amp to sound like. Takes all my dirt and fuzz and weird lo-fi effects so well and never loses focus or becomes muddy. I don't know how you did it, but this amp is damn near perfection and worth every penny. I love the gold light to match the gold on the amp by the way. Thanks again for all the conversations and for making such a great product."

Slide "I spent some time with the amp… beautiful …beautiful sounding amp. Great tone in a super clean, straight forward package. Picked up my first 2x12 Wave cab in early 2015. The WGS Vet 30’s sounds great covering everything from jazz to contemporary Christian to hard rock, blues and my usual genre, jazz fusion. My second cab, a baffled Wave 2x12/10housing one Vet 30 and one 10” Jensen Jet Tornado is crystal clear on clean tones and heavy gain alike. Very happy with all of my Port City products, thanks for making great tone so easy."

Slide "I have owned my Pearl and OS Wave cabinet for 6 months now. It is like playing in hi-fidelity. It lets you hear how your guitars and pedals actually sound!"
