Following on from the success of the original MK50H, Cornford have created the MK50H II. Completely redesigned, it incorporates the great Overdrive Channel found in the original, with the addition of a seperate Clean Channel, dual switchable and assignable FX loops and bias switchable for 6L6 power valves (supplied as standard) or EL34.
The addition of the seperate clean channel on this amp takes it into the realms of best channel switcher in the world.
If two channels doesn't sound that many, consider the available options...
1) Clean Channel with Master 1
2) Overdrive Channel with Master 1
3) Clean Channel with Master 2
4) Overdrive Channel with Master 2
5) Overdrive Channel with Overdrive switched on through Master 1
6) Overdrive Channel with Overdrive switched on through Master 2
Then add in the two FX loops possibly with eqs/boosts in there... I'm losing count already!
