Sovtek Mig 50

Sovtek is most-widely known for making amplifier tubes, but they had their hand in amplifiers, too. The Russian-made Sovtek Mig-50 is a 50-Watt amplifier head with a two channels. Each channel it’s own set of volume controls. As for tone control, there is the typical three-band EQ of treble, middle, and bass, as well as a presence control.

The all-tube Sovtek Mig-50 runs off of three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two 6L6 power tubes. Between the tubes and controls, some compare the Mig 50 with a Fender Bassman, but many call it the “Russian Marshall”, making it a great fit for those who play anything from blues to alternative to full-on rock. This simple yet versatile amp has two speaker outputs and will play at 4, 8, or 16-Ohms.

The Sovtek Mig 50 is a serious little amp that can be picked up for a seriously great price. Pure rockin’ tube tone in a compact little head. Don’t let the size fool you though, the Mig 50 can hold it’s own with plenty of volume. What’s not to love about the Mig 50? Leave your comments below!

    I’d like to hear it without the guitar running through a compressor.
