Standel 25W15



The Custom 25W15 is the optimized version of the 1953 25L15 “Custom” amplifier, housed in a single chassis, with front mounted controls and the “Hide-A-Jack” channel conveniently mounted on the front, with a handy Cut Control on back of U-Shaped cutout version or Accent control on the rectangular panel version (pics coming soon).

This is a lighter weight, more user friendly setup than the original for those who want all the rich, twangy tones without going whole hog.

This is arguably one of the finest sounding amplifiers of the 50s – perfect for any roots style music from country-jazz, to surf, to early rock. When turned up it overdrives nicely and can be equipped with a Jensen style Warehouse speaker, which sounds great overdriven.

The 25W15 is available with the 1959 style U-Shaped Control Cutout with 4 inputs, or with the 1960 style (pictures coming soon) full panel edge lighted dial with the Volume controls mounted together and 2 inputs. The former can be a bit noisy on the right channel and the latter mitigates this issue. The U-Shaped version can also be ordered with 2 inputs and Volume Controls together.

Overall, a user friendly, easily serviceable option to the original. These run 6L6 tubes (industry replacement for the obsolete 807) which also provide more power to deliver 25 very loud watts through a Weber California (all amps are available without speakers if you have your own, tested JBL D-Series speaker).

Note: small cosmetics details such as standard colors are always changing. Please visit our Instagram page (link on our Contact page) for our latest amplifiers.
