Standel 20J12



The 20J12 is a reissue of the coveted ‘61-‘62 20J12, driven by a pair of cathode biased EL84’s. A 1×12” combo, with gain adding Treble and Bass controls and two separate channels – one voiced for single coils, the other for humbuckers.

The 20J12 was Standel’s answer to the Fender Deluxe, and delivers the unique Standel circuitry and sound in a conventionally tubed, lightweight package; rich cleans that chime and twang and when turned up it overdrives with that distinctive EL84 bite – this is a great choice for those who want tube break-up at lower volumes. The “T” version adds the lush Standel tube tremolo.

Of the 200 or so originals made, they seldom change hands; Now the 20J12 is available again after 60 years. It’s perfect for standard guitar or low volume lap steel guitar; a grab and go, pedal friendly platform for small venues, studios, and your favorite music room.
