Songworks has introduced a new little hand-made amplifier, designed
for practicing just about anywhere at low levels.

The hand-assembled circuit features one 12AU7 and one 12AX7A tube driving
a small output transformer to the internal Jensen Alnico P10R 10"speaker with
1/2 Watt of power. Typically used as a preamp tube, the 12AX7A is actually
running as the power tube in this case.

The Little Lanilei 1/2 Watt is intended to give you cranked amp tone at a
volume that is quiet enough not disturb your neighbors.

Connections include line out, two speaker outs (one of which disengages the
internal speaker when in use), headphone out, and 3 way foot switchable gain
settings. Controls are Preamp, Tone and Master.

The Lanilei 1/2 Watt all-tube combo has the classic oxblood grill with the
Lanilei logo in 16 color embroidery. Size is 12" x 12" x 9" and the amps weighs
in at 14lbs

Price: $549.00 The amp is available direct from songworks. You can talk directly
with the builder via the Yahoo! Group at
