Additional info:  The Frenzel 'Sweet Little 15' HBX-AC15 is a handwires guitar amplifier head. These were released as a special in 2008 and then officially in 2009 and was made in Texas, USA. This model of amp head was inspired by the Matchless Hot Box and Vox AC15. It has a clean and a boost channel that can be selected by an AB/Y footswitch. Channel 1 the clean channel is simple yet effective, it bypasses the tone stack and provides only a gain option. Channel 2 the boost channel has three stages of preamp gain, this provides excellent dynamic response with almost no compression. The tone can be further shaped by a vintage style three-band tone stack, cut control and master level control. Frenzel have also added a 'pull-defeat' switch to the Master "for you guys that like the wide open non master control sound" and an 'NNFB' pull switch to the cut control "to defeat the negative feedback loop".

Below are Frenzels usual features that are all included:

 

STANDARD FEATURES:

- Input Jacks isolated from chassis for low noise, eddy currents, and hum.

- DC on preamp and driver filaments for ultra low noise and hum.

- Separate input jacks allow you to use an AB/Y pedal to select between or to blend channels.

- Classic 60's vintage style 3-BAND TONE STACK for extended flexibility in shaping your tone. 

- MASTER level control  so you can crank the GAIN up and overdrive the preamp and drivers without overdriving the output tubes....or you can use the pull-switch to defeat the Master for more dynamic response and gain.

- CUT control to attentuate the high frequency tones combined with an NNFB pull switch to remove the negative feedback and give you soaring dynamic response with practically no compression.
