Lazy J J10lc, VAC, Tremolo, Reverb, Alnico Blue, 3499 euros, in stock and available for direct sale.

"The J10 LC started out as a custom order for a 10 watt combo… and over a period of 2 years it slowly changed into what it eventually became: The J20’s little brother.

Originally, because of the restrictions of a smaller cabinet and chassis, the J10 used a solid state rectifier and had just one channel. Then there were voices asking me if it would be possible to have 2 channels, like the J20... and a tube rectifier. So to satisfy my own curiosity, I built a J10LC (Large Cabinet) prototype. And it just ticked all the boxes.

So, like the J20, the J10LC has two channels, Bright, and Normal… and
like on the J20, they are interactive.

The amp comes with the VAC attenuator, mid boost and bass cut and a
Celestion Alnico Blue as standard.

Reverb and Tremolo are optional add ons, as on all the other Lazy J
amps.

Soundwise, the J10LC really straddles the line between home/studio use
and smaller gigs.

For anyone who feels the J20 is a bit too much for the environment they
usually play in, the J10LC will be perfect.

It delivers J20 tone and response, with all its harmonic complexity, but
does it at a more manageable power level.

Because of the lower power level and choice of tubes, the J10LC has a
bit more natural compression and drive which really makes it sing.

Lazy J Deuce pedal, 399 euros, in stock

Lazy J Cruiser & Cruiser Deuce

Handmade with quality components, these pedals feature the ultimate way to overdrive a tube amp. Each one is a Booster/Overdrive pedal in one, or, depending on the settings, something in between.

I had the basic idea for these pedals in the mid 90s, and designed the first Cruiser back then. The idea was to get the biggest, most dynamic lead tone from my amp without getting too loud. The Drive circuit in the Cruiser has evolved a bit over the years, but the basic design has never changed.

Used as a Booster, the Cruiser takes the signal from your guitar and amplifies it without changing its tone and dynamics. The signal at the output is exactly like the signal at the input, but bigger. This bigger signal has the ability to drive your amp much harder, resulting in really rich tube distortion with all the tone and dynamics retained. This means that it won’t sound squashed and compressed like many other overdrive pedals. What’s more, it can be fully controlled by your guitar’s volume control - back it off, and it’ll clean right up!!
From here you can engage the DRIVE circuit, which is completely bypassed when turned all the way down.

It works in conjunction with the SAT control and between them they can take your signal from a clean boost into serious drive. The character of the drive, i.e. Compression/Dynamics can be tailored with the SAT control.

The Cruiser retains a warm and transparent sound at all times. Whether you boost or overdrive, it always feels like an extension of your guitar and amp, and at no time does it ever become thin.

As both functions are built into this pedal, they can be combined for a wide variety of sounds.

These pedals use a True Bypass, so when it’s switched off the circuit is completely disconnected from the straight-through signal. Your guitar then goes straight to your amp, without any signal-loss or coloration.

Lazy J J20, out of stock

…is based on a late 50s classic that has helped define the voice of Rock & Roll.

This amp is a 2 channel, hand build, point to point wired amp, which delivers ca. 18 Watts into a 12”, 8 Ohm, Celestion Alnico Blue Speaker. The cabinet is built from finger jointed pine and covered with hand aged, lacquered tweed.

The 2 channels are marked Normal and Bright with a Volume control for each one. The Tone control affects both channels equally.

Looking at the 4 inputs from the back of the amp, the 2 on the right are for the Normal Channel and the 2 on the left are for the Bright Channel.
Both inputs labeled 1 are higher gain than the ones labeled 2.

The interesting thing is that the both Volume controls are interactive. The Volume of the Channel you’re not plugged into has an effect on the tone/tightness of the Channel you are plugged into. In other words, if your guitar is plugged into the Bright Channel, the Normal Channel Volume affects the way the Bright Channel responds. This is subtle, but definitely audible. With the Bright Volume turned up to any given setting, and the Normal Volume off, you hear the sound of the Bright Channel alone…by turning the Normal Channel up about halfway, you hear an increase in low mids. By turning the Normal Volume up to 10, the bottom end will tighten up…from 10 – 12 the sound will get choked, compressed and become quieter. This can be used to get interesting tonal variations from the amp.

The amp is set up with a GZ34 rectifier and a pair of 6L6s in the power amp, and uses two 12AX7s. However, for a different feel and character, the amp will take a 5Y3 rectifier and a pair of 6V6s without the need of re-biasing.

An optional feature that can be added to the amp in place of the Ground Switch, is a Variable Attenuation Control (VAC), which allows the user to dial seamlessly from full output down to ca. 5 Watts while retaining the amps character all the way along.

Upon request, a Lazy J Reverb module can be added to the amp. It is a tube driven reverb circuit with a full size reverb tank, adding another dimension to the amp. The reverb circuitry and controls are housed in a small enclosure that is mounted to the inside of the cabinet, on the right hand side, looking at the amp from the back. The controls, Reverb Volume and Reverb Tone, are easily accessible.

The module is supplied with a Cut Off footswitch.

Variable Attenuation Control (VAC)

This circuit allows the user to reduce the Output of the amp in an even sweep from Full Power down to less than 5 Watts. However, this is not a Master Volume.

This circuit retains the amps tone and response while reducing its Output Volume.

In other words, you turn your amp up to get the tone you want… which might make it too loud for certain situations. Now you can turn the amp down with the VAC to exactly the level you need…while retaining all the character and response of your sound.

This circuit is an optional feature on the Lazy J 20.

However, it can be retro-fitted to most amps under 40 Watts.
