British Style 18W TMB EF86

  • 18 Watt

The Ceriatone 18W TMB EF86 is the most feature-laden offering in the 18W platform.  The 18W TMB EF86 replaces the “Normal” channel with the EF86 channel seen in famous British guitar amplifiers.

The EF86 channel is known for it’s incredible clarity and balance across the fingerboard.  Because of the high headroom of the EF86 preamp tube, this channel responds particularly well to pedals.

The TMB channel features a preamp somewhat similar to a Plexi50 or Plexi100, but with special care in matching it’s voice to the unique EL84/EZ81 power section.  Some of our favorite rock tones of ANY of our amplifiers are in the TMB channel.  As an added bonus, we incorporated a master volume for this channel only.

Unlike the standard 18W, this chassis is suitable for both head and combo formats.

Like other Ceriatone amps, we have labored carefully to select the finest components to suit the design, and the 18W uses our specially designed, custom transformers for superior reliability, frequency response, and feel.
