Fargen Amplification introduces the Micro Plex 17-Oct-12
Fargen Amplification is expanding its boutique tube amplifier line with the introduction of the Micro Plex, at what they say is an entry-level price.
Fargen tells us that 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." It features a 5 Watt Class A design, with push-pull gain and tone shift modes. Its 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. Priced at $999 MSRP, the Micro Plex is Fargen's first production amp available at an entry-level boutique price point.
Ben Fargen, founder and CEO, told Amped, "Players looking to upgrade to the boutique market can grab the Micro Plex's top-shelf tone, at a non-boutique price. 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."
