Nearly impossible to find! The Blankenship VariPlex Amplifier is a clone of David Friedman’s ’68 Plexi amp. During prototyping, Blankenship had players compare their prototype to the original, and when 10-of-10 chose the prototype, they were satisfied. The Variplex is equipped with a Variac (think “variable AC”) to modulate the power output — giving you from 50 watts down to 0 watts with the turn of a dial.
The associated 2×12 cab is loaded with Celestion Neodymium G12 Century Vintage speakers! Neodymium technology is designed to create a modern speaker with a distinctly classic vibe. The result is a unique blend of extraordinary note definition and vintage character. Exceptionally lightweight and loud, with a tightly controlled low-end, the Century Vintage exhibits a clear, powerful mid-range and crisp, bright top-end. With super-fast attack and superb tracking, it’s ideal for use in amps favoured by high-speed guitar players – both high gain rockers and clean country pickers.
