The JT Special is an M50X with a custom name.

Here is a message from the purchaser:  "Hi Randy, just wanted to let you know the amp is truly awesome!!!  Compared to my other amps (incl Bogner Ecstasy) the tone is SO pure, has really great clarity and string definition and cleans up beautifully on any gain setting.  Never had a plexi style amp before and to me, this is Plexi heaven, and then some.  It can easily nail all classic rock, early VH, punk rock, and heavy rock.  Also it is so addictive that unlike my other amps, I can sit and play it for hours"  (Main guitar he uses is a Knaggs Rappoport)

Consider me as a good chef and you are at my restaurant.  You are asking for a steak - you aren't instructing how to cook it, you are trusting that the chef knows how to prepare a steak.  Same situation here, but instead of steak you are looking for a custom M style amp.  I have built more amps than probably anyone ever.  I know what good tone is, and what makes an amp great. 

Custom name, colour is encouraged. 

Main signal path is point to point and components are in the best possible position. 

Boost is adjustable.

Heater voltage tweaked for best sound.  Amount of NFB tweaked by ear.  Typically 3 week build time, shipping via fedex is usually within a week. 

We have a Friedman Small Box and BE100 here and I have tweaked this M50X to be a better sounding amp. 

Depth is set the same as the Friedman's - ie 220k/.0047uf

Any questions - email me at  Contacting through this site can be flaky so don't use it.

Shipping is not free, I will collect from you the exact amount after I ship it

Jackal+ is the same platform but has: JTM tonestack, bright controls around BOTH the gain pot and master volume, FS boost, ±3db from my preferred level of FB,  Mod control (essentially a minor gain control as it changes the 2dn stage cathode resistance.  Can change the feel a little bit).
