Here we present a truly unique amplifier - the Purple Chili 20W Handwound Point-to-Point Valve Amp with External Cabinet, both meticulously housed in Flight Cases.

Purple Chilli, owned by Mike Walsh, boasts ownership of both the brand and the distinctive styling featured on this exceptional amp. Crafted in Essex, England, in late 2012, this particular unit represents a pre-production model initially conceived for a limited production run in collaboration with another individual. However, the production plan never materialized, rendering this amplifier a rare, one-of-a-kind discovery.

This amp stands as the sole embodiment of the BB Amplification 15-watt circuit design within a Purple Chili chassis and cabinet. It showcases a bespoke power controller and effects loop circuit, employing JJ valves - an EL84 in the power stage and an ECC83S in the preamp.

Hand-wired and employing a point-to-point configuration, it features a built-in attenuator for power adjustment, facilitating full tonal expression even at lower volume levels.

The combo amp features an open-backed design, while the extension speaker boasts a closed-back construction. Both speakers are premium Tayden 12” Green-Backs, ensuring exceptional sound quality.
