Mack Heatseeker HS-18 Description

We describe the Heatseeker HS-18’s tone as ‘Marshal meets Vox’.  Its cleans are bright and chimey and its power tube overdrive has the characteristic EL84 upper midrange emphasis that produces aggressive crunch and distorted tones.  Think Angus and Keith.

Mack Amps use high quality components and are carefully hand wired and assembled.  The result is exceptional tone and tour proven quality.
