The CUB12R houses an HH 12” driver, giving it an increased volume and full rich valve tone. Looking at the pre amp it’s clear that the CUB12R packs more into the amp than it’s smaller siblings. From right to left the controls run as follow: -Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume, Tone and finally Reverb. The output section of the CUB12R is based around a pair of EL84 tubes giving it a more scooped tone than it’s smaller counterparts. Think smooth rich overdrive with bags of gain.
Now the nifty trick – the CUB12R features two input sockets one-labeled 15 watts the other labeled less than one watt. Plug into the 15 watts input and that’s what you get 15 watts of cool tube tone, plug into the “less than one watt” and you get your great tube tone but now it’s a whisper more than a roar. The Less than 1-watt option allows you to drive the power amp section really hard allowing you to really access the “dark art” tone of power amp distortion.
The CUB12R’s valve complement consists of 3 x ECC83 valves in the preamp giving you the ability to dial in plenty of gain, and the output section consists of 2 x EL84 output valves, which give you that classic British tonality to the amp when they are pushed hard. The CUB12R’s rear panel features everything you’ll need, additional speaker outs with both 8 & 16 Ohm options, a footswitch socket for switching the reverb and an effects loop.
