Kustom Defender V5

Low-wattage all-tube amps that provide authentic, cranked up tube tone at modest volume levels, is there anything more fun? Probably not, that’s what this site is all about! The Kustom Defender is a basic 5-watt combo amp with just a volume and tone knob but the Defender is all about hearing what that volume knob does as you slowly turn it up. You’ll move through clean and clear tube tones to more overdriven sounds until this little sucker is just plain screaming!

If you like the sound of a single EL84 power tube moving naturally into increased output distortion the Defender is the amp for you. And it’s great for cranking up and controlling the action right from your guitar’s volume control, channel switching is for sissies! This is a nice low watt amp that you can get for very little cash out of your pocket.



  • One 12AX7 preamp tube and one EL84 power tube
  • Three speaker outputs (4, 8, and 16-ohm).

Recommended if:
You want a super basic combo tube amp that looks great and is compact to haul around with ease.
