IVU Creator   Oxblood   (5W Tube Amplifier)


Oxblood is a tribute to the original Tweed Champ 5F1 (5watts).   It is a simple SMALL LOUD AMP with tube spirit. The Tweed-covered Champ amp of the 1950’s is well known as the small-but-mighty tone machine that belongs in every serious guitarist’s collection. It’s a terrific practice amp, simple and pure, and is also regarded by countless pro players as indispensable in the recording studio.

The IVU Creator Oxblood continues that glorious legacy, with all-tube hand-wired circuitry and well-selected components. It features the classic 5F1 design with Tone control modification, delivering about 5 watts of output power easily pushed into warm, compressed distortion. A Celestion® Eight 15 8” speaker is ideal for the bedroom or the stage. “Orange Drop” tone capacitors add subtly nuanced tonal magic.   It comes with custom transformers, “chicken-head” volume and tone controls, a well-quilted cabinet, lacquered TWEED covering (or RED or WHITE ) . . . and more.   The result is a richly rewarding Champ amplifier experience !

Oxblood features an AC power switch (115V / 230V) to fit the power requirements of traveling musicians, and offers the ultimate dream: a pedal friendly amplifier.

The Eight 15 is ideal for upgrading your bedroom blaster with authentic British tone. Well-balanced mids and highs complement a surprisingly meaty bottom end - it’s just about the biggest sounding 8 inch loudspeaker we’ve ever heard! The Eight 15 speaker is available in four, making it ready, willing and able to blast new life into junior combos like the Fender® ChampTM, bringing extra depth, girth and punch to your tone. Supersize the performance of your amp with the sonic might of the Eight 15, the fattest sounding 8-inch speaker around.
