Reverend Musical instruments is now taking orders on their Kingsnake 20-60 guitar amplifier designed by Dennis Kager and Joe Naylor.

The Kingsnake is designed to produce powerful "boutique" amp tone in an affordable and light weight package. The single-channel, all-tube design offers versatility via the Schizo voicing switch, master volume, switchable wattage and tube-driven reverb.

Construction features include chassis mounted/hand-wired jacks, switches and controls. Independent pre-amp, power amp and control circuit boards for reliability and easy service. Ceramic flame-proof power tube sockets and synthetic low-noise pre-amp tube sockets. Tube sockets mounted to circuit boards with mechanical locking tabs.

Available as a 1-12" combo or head. The head version has identical featuresincluding reverb.


  • Schizo Switch:
    • US - Transparent midrange with strong bass and treble for classic American clean and light overdrive.
    • LO-FI - More midrange and gain with a softer treble response for a bluesy tone reminiscent of worn tubes and an old speaker.
    • UK - Even more gain with a distinctly British upper-mid peak for classic blues-rock and hard-rock crunch.
  • Switchable Wattage: 20 or 60 watts. Use with the master volume to adjust the amount of overdrive and volume to suit different size rooms.
  • Jensen Neo 100, 12 inch speaker featuring a super-light, high efficiency neodynium magnet. 100 watt rating for clear clean tones, and vintage British style cone for smooth overdrive. Weight is about half as much a conventional speaker.
  • Electro-Harmonix Tubes: two 6L6 and four 12AX7.
  • Accutronics Reverb Tank
  • All-Tube Circuit: 100% tube signal path and tube-driven reverb circuit.
  • DC Filaments: all 12AX7 tubes have hum eliminating DC filaments.
  • All-Plywood Cabinet

Reverend Direct Price: $699 for the 1-12 Combo, $599 for the Head
