Juketone’s range of affordable valve heads and combos has grown in popularity over the past few years as many of us seek out smaller and more portable amplification solutions. 

But it’s only recently that the company has added its own lunchbox model. The now-familiar steel case format actually predates those big, heavy plywood boxes of the classic rock era, with early hi-fi metal jacket designs dating back as far as the 1940s.
