T The Artist Series amplifier is a magnificent fusion of John Lennon’s music and his art. The series features select Lennon drawings and each is available in a limited, numbered edition of eleven. And each amp is hand-built meticulously by Ben Fargen.

Span Lennon’s 60’s Liverpool and 70’s Plastic Ono Band tones through the use of the two-way Decade Switch and enjoy the warmth and depth of best-in-class, boutique amp engineering. The combination of pure White Tolex with a White Grill cloth provides an innovative and unique canvas for John Lennon’s drawings, which now flourish in this work of sonic and visual art.

Fargen uses a specially designed and manufactured grill cloth on which the drawing is printed. Following the same dimensions and hand-crafted wood working techniques, the Artist Series cabinet was born. Its dovetail-jointed solid Poplar cabinet sides and rear panels with a speaker baffle gives this cabinet an incredible tonal advantage over conventional plywood cabinet designs. The result is a warm, natural tone projection that retains all of the vintage vibe of the amplifier.
