The Juketone True Blood delivers everything you would expect from the original 5w tube amplifier that was used by so many greats throughout the years, Joe Walsh, Eric Clapton, Slash, Keith Richards, Joe Perry and Robert Cray to mention just a few.

Hand wired with quality componets including a single Ruby 6V6 power tube, a Ruby 12AX7 in the preamp and a 6Z4 rectifier this amplifier oozes all the charm of the original. Yes, it doesn’t have a tone control, what do you think your guitar’s controls are for? One volume control is all you need to hear sweet cleans through to break up and into full volume distortion for that definitive sound…….and all at palatable volume.

Product Description

Although the last Fender clone to be produced in Juketone’s ‘Blood Line’ range we have gone back to the beginning with our version of the 1957 Fender Champ 5F1.

Although the True Blood’s soul is firmly in 1957 with regards to build, tweed covering and oxblood grill cloth; welcomed modern attributes are silver corners, a more durable leather look strap and a rather fine Celestion Eight 15 speaker.

In all, a classic recording and practice amp with impeccable tone and looks with a price well below its competitors.

    A great, warm sounding little amp.

    If you put the £250 Juketone True Blood side by side to a Fender Champ reissue costing £1200, audibly you would not know the difference.

    This amp has continued to surprise me since I received it a couple of weeks ago. The warmth and the quality is incredible considering the price. I have a mammoth tube amp, but wanted something small and with a vintage tone and feel to play at home. As a primarily tele player, I was GASing over a Fender Champ or something similar to bring out the twang and brightness of my Fender Custom Shop Nocaster. I am absolutely delighted with the results from the True Blood, which is incredible quality and ticks all the boxes. If you are used to having adjustable EQ on your amps, you may prefer another in the “Blood line”, but I enjoy the back to basics simplicity of a one knob amp and getting to know how the guitar interacts with it. If you are on the fence, go for it – it’s awesome!
