Updated 20 Watt American Workhorse
Grit [gr-it] noun
‘To have the drive, stamina and determination to push through any challenge or obstacle thrown your way until you succeed.’
That pretty much sums up the new SPANKY MKII+ 112 combo. The SPANKY MKII+ takes the legendary Spanky MKII and gives it more clean headroom. And when you want American-flavored grit, there’s a new front panel switchable boost mode to take it to the edge of breakup or all the way over the top!

How It Works
The SPANKY MKII+ features a 3-Band EQ features so you know you’ve got the tonal versatility you need to get things sounding just right. The MID BOOST toggle switch allows you to jump your signal passed the tone controls for a supremely touch-sensitive sustain and grit. See below for a description of each of the controls.
The SPANKY MKII+ Volume Control sets the feel, tone and temperament of your guitar signal. Settings around 11-o clock are clean, punchy and substantial. Settings after 1-0 clock begin to introduce edge of breakup tones (especially with humbuckers).
The SPANKY MKII+ features a three band EQ arranged across TREBLE, MIDDLE and BASS controls. For enhanced touch-sensitivity and sustain, bypass the tone controls by placing the BOOST SWITCH in the ‘up’ position.
Finalize Your Tone
How it Works
The SPANKY MKII+ features a mastering section to provide the tools you need to refine and enhance your tone. The REVERB controls the overall sense of space to your sound. HF DAMP controls the overall high frequency content of the output section. HYBRID-MASTER™ controls your overall volume. See below for a description of each control here in the mastering section of the amplifier.
The SPANKY MKII+ features a lush Class-A tube driven spring reverb effect to give your tone a vintage-style ambient effect. The REVERB knob controls the overall sense of space to your sound.
HF DAMP allows you to control the high frequency content of your sound without killing the chime and harmonics. Use this control when perfecting your sound in artificial listening environments such as in-ear monitors. Or, use it to sweeten up the high frequencies as part of your overall sound.
