Magical Bjorn Juhl circuit. THE TONE! Hand made point to point wired 40-75W tube amp that is fine-tuned for the best possible tone. Based on the experience Bjorn Juhl has had working with finest tubes amps for 20 years. The circuit is as original as a tube amp can be, respecting the heritage of the greatest amps designs. The fine-tuned circuit with build in bias adjustment accepts 6L6, EL34, KT66, KT88 ... even 6V6 if you can find ones that can handle 500V of plate voltage. The overbuild custom transformers have enough juice to drive the KT88's/6550's to about 75W of power. With special POWERSUCK switch you can drive the power-amp to fat compressed tone at bedroom levels. We are not talking about 3-dimensional tone, this one is a 4-D tone! And the touch response is awesome, this is about the most dynamic amp I have seen. There are tones from sparkling clean to fat and sweet, singing overdrive, from sparkle to rumble... Nothing but the best covering is used, no thin tolex here. ALL the parts are overrated and should last for ages.
The amp is already available by custom order and it can be played all over the world (100/117/230/240V). Price only for the head! MORE INFO ON THIS AMP HERE:

Harri Koski: Guitarist, marketing, cordinating the production, helping hand.
Harri has been playing guitar since mid 70´s and his serious hobby turned into a business when he started Custom-Sounds (www.custom-sounds.com) in 1996. Custom-Sounds was a high-end guitar gear company from the beginning and it was one of the first “boutique" guitar shops on internet. His co-operation with Bjorn Juhl started the BJF pedals business and soon these two soul brothers were talking about the ultimate amplifier. Bjorn Juhl and Harri had the mad idea about designing the ultimate guitar tube amplifier and to make it right here in Scandinavia. Bjorn put on his propel-hat and Harri put all his energy and money into this project. Soon we found the right people to work with us and the world got a brand new amplifier that was not a clone of any vintage amp as these modern hand-wired amps often are. Harri has a collection of various Gibson guitars and early JV Squier Fenders and plugs these into his serial no: 000 Mad Professor prototype head that is played loud almost every day.
