I don't know where a Milkman The Amp manual can be found online, but I can answer questions. Note that there is a (white) 50w version with Trem and a (black) 100w version with boost. Both have reverb.
Thanks. No specific questions - I just dig reading gear manuals. :p

So, say with the Shift LIne, you could run your effects with a GCX into the pedal and out to phones for in-house playing? Is that correct? My wife and daughter would be soooooo excited about that.

Yup. I have one of their earlier versions without IR loader that's great and use it for that regularly. If interested, I'll sell it.

I havn’t tried any of these but they certainly look very intriguing. It seems to me that this would be a great route to take if you also got a pedal power amp and bypassed the whole rack thing altogether, therefore creating an incredibly portable Jerry tone rig .... hmmmm, I like this idea!

The most intriguing options in my opinion are the Mad Professor (comes with awesome sounding overdrive added), the Kingsley and the Shift Line (both have actual tube inside). Kingsley also makes the Squire which has less tweak ability than the Maiden but essentially the same thing otherwise (apparently). Also, from reading on Gear Page it seems that the Maiden D (Dumble) is actually pretty much the same as the BF, but “brighter with less bass”. Seems like that would be perfect for Jerry tone. I know Mayer uses a Dumble.
Very interesting stuff!

The Maiden V2 has many added capabilities relative to the V1.


New V2 Overview

The Maiden V2 is now shipping. All of the original features of the V1 Maiden (see below) are still included. New features include the addition of a second footswitch for accessing either the mid boost, the EQ lift boost function, or both.

The Maiden is a tube preamplifier in a pedal format. It is suitable for running directly into a power amplifier, running into the effects return of an amplifier’s effects loop, recording direct when combined with a cabinet/power amp simulator or for use as a booster/second clean sound when plugged into the front end of another guitar amplifier.

There are two models available: the Maiden BF, inspired by the classic Fender blackface design and the Maiden D, based on the clean channel of a Dumble ODS type amplifier. These preamplifiers are primarily about clean tones but can also be set for edge of breakup sounds.

The single Tungsol 12ax7 runs at high voltage for a full, rich and dynamic tube sound. The 9VDC power supply (provided) is converted to both 6VDC for the tube heaters and 275VDC for the tube plates.

V2 Features

The Maiden V2 features controls for Volume, Master, Treble, Middle, Bass and EQ Lift, as well as a 3-way bright switch, a mid boost switch and an EQ Lift Boost footswitch.

New V2 Features include:

A second footswitch is incuded in the same size enclosure, giving the option of accessing two features of the circuit by footswitch:

- EQ Lift Boost. Lifting the EQ results in a large volume boost and a general fattening of the tone. The amount of volume lift and tone fattening is set by the EQ Lift pot. This feature was available on the V1, but only with the addition of the external EQ Lift Boost pedal (sold separatley).

- Mid Boost. On the V1 Maiden the mid boost was activated with a push-pull pot switch. On the V2 this is replaced with a 3-way mini switch. In position 1 the mid boost is off. In position 2 the mid boost becomes footswitchable with the second footswitch. In position 3 the mid boost is on (regardless of the second footswitch status).

This second footswitch can be used to select either the Mid Boost or the EQ Lift Boost or it can access both features at once. If the user wants to use the footswitch for Mid Boost only, set the Mid Boost mini switch to position 2 and turn the EQ Lift pot to zero. To access the EQ Lift Boost alone (with the mid boost turned off), set the Mid Boost mini switch to position 1 and turn the EQ Lift pot to the desired boost amount. To access both the EQ Lift with the Mid Boost already on, set the Mid Boost mini switch to position 3. To access the Mid Boost and EQ Lift at the same time, set the Mid Boost mini switch to position 2 and set the EQ Lift pot to the desired boost amount.

Measurements: 3 7/8” wide x 4 ¾” deep x 2.56" tall

Power requirements: 9VDC @ 500mA, cent

This one is based on the Two Rock Coral - clean channel should be sparkly clean for days...

Mooer Micro preamp 010 Two Stone

MOOER micro preamps are sonically accurate digital recreations of the pre-amp sections of popular tube amplifiers. We have developed these by directly analyzing real tube amplifiers using a brand new technology to capture their sound, dynamics and response. Each Micro Pre-amp comes complete with dual channels, integrated speaker cabinet simulation and dual operating modes to suit the needs of all users.

Initially we are releasing a set of 10 models, each based on a different popular tube amplifier from a range of manufacturers. These have been designed to be used with the upcoming MOOER power amp or in the effects return of any standard guitar amplifier. The speaker cab simulation allows the user to connect direct to a soundcard, powered monitor or P.A. without the need for a guitar amp or speaker cab at all.


High quality dual channel preamp
Independent 3 band EQ, Gain and Volume controls for each channel
Speaker cabinet simulation on/off
2 different modes for footswitch operation. On/Off or channel A/B
010 is based on TwoRock® Coral
