AXL Medway 1X12 Combo

Here’s another cool little boutique amp- the Medway 1X12 by AXL. AXL is relatively new to the U.S. market, but it’s been thriving in China for a while now. Founded in 1993 by Alan Xiangde Liu (see the initials), AXL has become one of the premier members of the burgeoning chinese MI scene. The Medway is an interesting animal. It has a very “boutiquey” look, but the price tag is another story. Its 18 watts and 12AX7/EL84 tube combo power a single 12” Celestion Greenback, unless you go with the 2X12 model. Other features include: Effects loop, fixed-bias output stage (with no negative feedback), Accutronics spring reverb and Op-amp driven pre-boost gain circuit. If you’re on the lookout for a cool, affordable combo for small gigs or the studio, the AXL might be worth a look.
