A fine ride.

The Kustom '36 Coupe combo amp uses a dual 6L6 power tube platform with a 12AX7 preamp section and is rated at 36 watts RMS. With Master Volume controls on both the Rhythm and Lead channels, it's easy to dial in the perfect amount of gain. From warm, chunky rhythm tones to high-voltage, high-sustain rock, it's all there.

Each channel also provides a Pull-Bright function that, when activated, modifies the low-end response for a chunkier, British-type tone. When not pulled, the tonal response is fuller and rounder, a more American-type tone. By the way, the EQ (Bass, Middle, Treble) reflects pure, vintage Kustom specifications.

Drawing on its heritage, Kustom teamed up with U.S. speaker manufacturer Eminence to produce a new driver exclusively for the Coupe Series. The result is the KEI (Kustom-Eminence Integrated) Turbo 12 speaker. With its distinctive aluminum dust cap, the Turbo 12 is a modern interpretation of a vintage speaker design that gives players a taste of the original speaker's tonal properties, which were great for cleaner tones, while successfully handling more modern, high-gain sounds as well.

The '36 Coupe provides an Accutronics Reverb unit with Tone control (another vintage Kustom feature). You'll also find a Tube-Driven Effects Loop, a Baltic Birch cabinet, a speaker-emulated Line Out and a 3-function footswitch that switches channels, turns the effects on or off, and also activates a 10db overall volume boost for solos.

From sparkling clean to stinging blues and roaring rock, the '36 Coupe does it all. Offering boutique amp tones at production amp prices, you owe it to yourself to test drive a Coupe.

My Favorite Amp for the last 4 years


from Undisclosed

Comments about Kustom '36 Coupe Guitar Combo Amp:

This has been my go-to amp for the last 4 years. I started with the 72 Coupe, but slimmed down to the 36. I have the anniversary version and love the way it sounds. It is pedal friendly, has a great boost--with a pot on the back to control the amount of boost you get. The power amp section is great, and I use it often with a Behringer Vamp Pro. The tube amp with that really sounds killer. It is also sweet without any effects at all. The clean channel is fendery and the dirty channel handles most classic rock duties. I use the Vamp Pro for Ultra high gain stuff. The tube fed direct out sounds great and I don't have to worry about tripping over a mike at those close gigs. It also sounds killer when recording. I do wish it had separate tone controls for each channel, and a switchable effects loop would be nice--and I miss the tremolo that was on the 72 coupe--but I don't miss carrying around the extra weight. My 36 coupe has been very reliable--I have replaced power tubes several times through the years, but I play the crap out of it. I have found the Kustom people very responsive--it came with a noisy preamp tube out of the box and they sent me a new one with no problem. The handle didn't hold up well and they sent me another one even when it was past the warranty. The looks are cool--I have the red one, and the anniversary model has the black stripe and embroidery. It's always been loud enough for any gig--especially with the direct out--but is easy to carry. I can carry two guitars on my back (double bag) the Kustom 36 in one hand, and the preamp in the other hand for one trip in from the car to the gig or practice. It's a great amp and though I check other things out and have other amps, it's the one I always use and depend on. Check it out!
