Fargen Amplification announced today it has expanded its line of tube guitar amplifiers with the introduction of the Micro Plex. The Micro Plex specifically targets a market that Fargen customers have been asking for by providing them a high quality, boutique amplifier at a price point under $1000 USD.
The Micro Plex is a Class A, hand wired tube amplifier that offers a versatile range of classic rock tones – from “The Wind Cries Mary” to “Back in Black”. The 5 Watt design features push-pull gain and tone shift modes. It’s circuit is similar to that of the Fargen Mini Plex MKII, but in a slightly smaller footprint measuring 16.5 x 9 x 7 inches.
Additional features include:
The Micro Plex is an amp that retailers can offer in their mix, providing customers with an exciting alternative at an attractive price. “Players looking to upgrade to the boutique market can grab the Micro Plex’s top-shelf tone, at a non-boutique price” says Ben Fargen, founder and CEO. “And boutique customers looking for a compact amp will find a lot of tone in this package. Think of this as the little brother to the Mini Plex; it is a wonderful way to capture your rock vibe.”
