This amp is a screamer!  

Based on the always-effective and toneful 6V6, this amp employs octal tubes in the front end - 6SC7 tubes - one as the preamp tube and the other as the phase Inverter.  You may be most familiar with these tubes from their use in 1955 and earlier Fender tweed amps.  

First - one great thing about this amp is that you can use US made, vintage tubes in the preamp section, and the tubes are plentiful as well as affordable.  They tend to last forever, and they sound awesome.

Back to the amp!  We were knocked out when we first plugged in.  The diminutive stature of the amp hides it's ability to roar and bowl you over.  The basic controls keep life simple.  The way to go with this machine is to dime it and work your guitar's volume knob to go from warm and delicious to fat, saturated gain. 

Everything is working great with this amp.  The tolex was peeling a bit when it arrived.  We glued it down and it looks great now.  Otherwise, it is just perfect.

Little Walter's website description:

Our  22 amp has a bright channel normal channel with their own separate volume controls and a single tone control for both channels.

This amp is being used by slide, lap steel, and guitar players. Unlike the really clean 50 series amps, this amp is capable of great breakup tone but still boasts great volume and character.

The 22 watt amp was created for players to have the ability to achieve a desirable breakup tone whilst having enough head room to play a larger room. Based on the original 15 watt chassis but with a larger power and output transformer this amp has quickly proven itself in the blues arena with players such as Vince Gill, who uses it for small clubs and big arenas, as well as for recording.

The remarkable thing about this amp is the way you set it up on stage. You would set the volume for the most breakup tone you would be using in the venue. Then you would roll your instrument volume back a bit to achieve as clean a sound as you wish with no loss of tonality. A slight roll of the volume pot on your instrument will give you the overdriven breakup you want on demand.
