colby lil' darlin

The Colby Lil' Darlin is the perfect recording and practice amp.


Small but satisfying

 The hand wired Lil’ Darlin is based on a highly sought-after and ubiquitous 1950s three tube, single 6V6, 8” speaker combo (also known as a Tweed Champ) but takes it to a new level of tone and usability. By using classic build quality, high quality parts with strategic circuit modifications plus a high quality Weber Alnico magnet speaker, the Lil’ Darlin offers great clean sounds and great Class A overdrive at living room levels. The Lil’ Darlin has been carefully fine tuned so that it has many “sweets spots” while only using a single Volume control. 




its all in the details

The Lil’ Darlin features 5E1 circuit with Colby mods, Class A, cathode biased 6V6, NOS Allen Bradley carbon comp resistors, Mallory signal caps, and TAD filter caps, Sprague bypass caps, US built transformers, Weber Alnico magnet Blue Pup speaker and meticulous hand wiring. As with all Colby and Park amplifiers, the Lil’ Darlin is hand-built in NYC by Mitch Colby.
