Budda Amplification's MN100 Amp Head | Custom Italian Leatherwork

The new MN100 three-channel tube amp head by Budda Amplification promises boutique Budda tones with a boutique appearance to 'boot'. 

Featuring 100-watts of all-tube power, separate channels for Clean, Rhythm and Lead, user interchangeable 6L6GC or EL34 power tubes for true Fender or Marshall tones, and Resonance, Presence and Reverb controls on each channel.  A revolutionary built-in PowerPan rectifier control knob allows the player to dial in any ratio of full-tube to diode rectification allowing the very character and feel of the amp to be tweaked, anywhere from 'spongy' to 'hard'.  A versatile beast!

Budda Amplification also appointed shoe and boot-designer Mark Nason to create custom leatherwork for the MN100 head and MN412 4x12 speaker cabinet!

Now, is it just me or does the fit of the leather around the MN100 head and cabinets look a little loose?

(More details here:


  1. Wouldn't all that leather make the amp crazy hot - we used to have a leather sofa!!

  2. Not much hotter than the more traditional tolex covering, methinks. As long as there's good ventilation for the tubes at the back. In the tropics where I live, leather sofas without air-conditioning would be unbearable!

  3. Well, lets face it, tubes get hot as hell, if we were really worried about that lets make the amp cabinet out of pure copper or aluminum to pull the heat away from the tubes....kinda borrowing from computer lessons; hey maybe we're on to something, aluminum amp cabinet with copper on the outside...hmm!
