BRITISH DREAM MKII AC Channel Closeup
BRITISH DREAM MKII Plexi Channel Closeup

Inspired by our favorite amplifiers from England, the British Dream MKII features a comprehensive AC experience on channel one and a classic Plexi experience on channel two.

AC Channel
Four different vintage AC preamp voices plus a mid boost/cut switch are provided, including Normal, Brilliance, Top Boost 1 and Top Boost 2—even a Top Cut control is on hand to fine-tune your tone.

PLEXI Channel
The BRITISH DREAM MKII’s dual 12AX7 preamp and tone stack circuitry featuring Volume, Treble, Middle and Bass controls faithfully deliver an authentic plexi experience that leans toward a late ’68 plexi with an excellent balance of tone, attitude and grit. More signal gain can be added to the audio path via toggle switch to push your tone over the top.

Tube or Solid State Rectification
For the ultimate experience in the “feel” department, the British Dream MKII gives you two rectifier options that are controlled via toggle switch. Choose between a tube rectifier (classic vintage power supply sag) or a solid-state rectifier (efficient, clear and punchy) and easily toggle between whichever you prefer.

HybridMASTER™ Volume Control
HybridMASTER™ and the Venue Switch are located on the front panel giving you the confidence to play what you feel when you feel it at exactly the volume you need for the occasion. Think of the Venue Switch as a “macro” volume adjustment – choose between full volume (Stage Mode) or an 70% volume reduction (Studio Mode) – and the HybridMASTER knob as a “micro” volume adjustment allowing you to fine tune your output levels. Our patented HybridMASTER is volume management executed to perfection.
