2002:  CUSTOM SHOP AD50 HEAD & COMBO

“Whereas the Retro 50 was a combination of the best Pics Only designs, the AD 50 was designed to be a combination of all the AD models. The idea was to have two different hand wired amps – the Retro 50 and the AD 50 – each with different sonic characteristics, so that the customer had a choice of sound. The AD 50 has a bit more gain available, and it also has more clean headroom. Cosmetics-wise, both of them have the graphics back. We also used them on the Mk 3 bass amp. We made 2×12  combos of both models as limited editions.”
