Fargen Amplification Release Townhouse Micro-Sized Amplifier

New compact boutique amp from Fargen to be on display at summer NAMM

First came their trio of John Lennon combos, then came their new pedal, now Fargen Amplification have unleashed their new Townhouse Micro-Sized Amp due for it's first showing at the upcoming Summer NAMM.

The amp features Fargen's Decade switch to dial in the different tones of the eras and features some top spec components.

We'll definitely be giving it a run through at NAMM this year, so keep your eyes peeled!

Here's the Fargen press release:

Fargen Amplification announced today the newest addition to its lineup of boutique guitar amplifiers, the Townhouse. 

Following on the success of its first micro-sized amp the Micro Plex, Fargen has built its counterpart, also a 5 Watt Class A design, hand-wired and made in the USA.  It’s two-way Decade Switch covers the 50’s and 60’s, with vintage tweed- and brownface-inspired tones.

“I wanted to add another super-compact amp to our line”, says Ben Fargen, founder.  “This amp is extremely pedal-friendly, and offers the player in essence two amps in one, for $999, which is very reasonable for a boutique amp of this caliber.”

The Townhouse incorporates a USA-built transformer, vintage 60’s style caps and carbon comp resistors, and DC filaments for ultra quiet operation.  Its single power tube socket can be used with any octal power tube without re-bias.  

It measures 16.5”x9”x7’ and can be paired with a matching 1×12” speaker cabinet., MSRP $999 head, $499 cabinet.

Fargen will also debut the Pete Anderson Tumbleweed pedal, MSRP $299, as well as a slanted 1×12” extension cab for the Micro Plex amp, MSSRP $499,  which can now be played in a full stack configuration, including the head, slanted cab and standard cab.
These new products will be on display at Summer NAMM in the Fargen booth #1154, and are currently available through Fargen’s authorized dealers.

Here's some behind the scenes footage of the Fargen John Lennon JL15.
