This Bundle Includes:

  • 1 x Magnatone 1x10" Extension Cab for Baby M80

The BIGGEST sounding LITTLE Combo to hit the soundwaves! 

The Baby M-80 is the newest, smallest, and lightest-weight guitar amplifier in the Master Collection. This amp is more than fun to play. It's gainy, chewy, and harmonically rich in tone that is inspired by deep roots in classic British rock guitar tones.

Handsome as its bigger siblings, dressed in a black cotton levant cabinet covering, wrap-around grill, and lighted Magnatone logo, this baby is a ton of fun to play. 
This powerhouse is the perfect companion for a bedroom studio and is unbelievably versatile at a small gig. Available as a 1x10" combo, head, and matching 1x10" extension speaker cabinet loaded with a custom Warehouse Guitar Speaker 10" ceramic magnet speaker.

The Baby M-80 is powered by a pair of vintage "New Old Stock" (NOS) 6AQ5 tubes that deliver 12 watts of power despite their small size.  Turn it up, and the power from the miniature 6AQ5/6005 is very satisfying!

The pre-amp has three 12AX7 tubes that offer Hi gain and Lo gain modes selectable via the front panel switch. The Lo gain input covers a natural and medium breakup tone needed for rhythm, yet plug into the Hi gain input and get the Baby M-80, which delivers a liquid gain that screams.

A tube-buffered FX loop has been added to the front panel for convenience, which your pedalboard will love as this amp is pedal-friendly.

Billy Gibbons worked with Magnatone to perfect this amp's small size and gain structure. In keeping with Billy's directive to "retain the gain or feel the pain," this little gem of an amp delivers a big tone in a compact size.

The control panel on the Baby M-80 is easy to dial in tone with a simple Bass and Treble tone stack. Long-time Magnatone engineer and tube amp guru Obeid Kahn designed this model with a unique trick; Khan recommends, "Just simply max the Bass control knob, and you'll cut the Mid's." Khan says that the final 8-10 range on the Bass knob forces the Mids to dip, achieving a scooped tone for aggressive modern textures gradually. The Baby M-80 has a wide range of adjustments possible with only two controls.

The history behind our unique NOS 6AQ5/6005 tube dates back to the era of vintage radios, and these tubes are plentiful on the vintage market. This tube was initially used by the military, made in the USA, and was the pinnacle of development of its time. Obeid Khan uses this tube in his Reason Bambino amp, and the Khan PAK amp is now featured in the Magnatone Baby M-80 amp.
