Merino Head


New for 2018! 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.

The Port City Merino features:

  • Master Tone and Volume Controls
  • Bright Switch
  • 2 – TAD 6V6GT Power Tubes
  • 2 – JJ ECC83 Preamp Tubes
  • 5Y3 Rectifier Tube
  • USA Classic Tone Transformers
  • 20 Watt Output
  • 2 / 4 / 8 Ohm Impedance Switch
  • Weight: 14 lbs
  • 16.5″W // 8″H // 9″D

The Merino combo ships with a Mercury Magnetic SD Power cord and Kimber speaker cable.
