Cornford Roadhouse

ROB BALDUCCIWITH THE RK100 AND MK50H

Sporting a pair of 6L6 / 5881 power valves, this deceptively simple amp will deliver all the grunt you need.

Single channel it may be, but add in the footswitchable dual master volume controls and sublime Cornford overdrive and you've got the perfect backline partner.

Just take a look at some of the artists using the MK50H and you'll see that great tone doesn't have to be complicated.

MK50H - Story

The idea behind this head is to give our fellow guitarists an amp that can be gigged or used in the studio with unrivalled ease of use, total flexibility and no pratting about - boutique amp quality with all the guitar sounds that all of us guitarists are hearing in our heads but are struggling like crazy to find.

The ethic is to provide awesome guitar sounds, superlative quality, affordable prices to our fellow guitarists.

2000"
