The Park 45/100 is a newly built limited-edition version of the "100" watt amps made famous in 1966 by such players as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix at Monterey, early Pete Townshend and Malcolm Young. It is a more powerful Park 45 with four KT66s in a bigger head cabinet with huge transformers and high voltages that produces guitar tones like no other amp. Its sound is full and harmonically rich with a big bottom end that bloom as notes are sustained. It has a wonderful sound of its own that is not as tight or aggressive compared to the later 100W amps produced from 1967 and later. Only ten of these limited amps will be made by Mitch Colby in his New York workshop. This is THE DEFINITIVE recreation of this unique and special amplifier.
The head is a physical and sonic recreation of the original Park version down the head box size, vintage correct NOS resistors (mostly Piher), vintage correct NOS signal capacitors (mostly Phillips mustard caps), and white "banana" knobs. However, we've updated it where it counts; for reliability and convenience. Improved features include a much stronger aluminum chassis with welded corners, heavy duty output transformer brackets, double top vents for improved air flow, the internal fuse was brought to the exterior and the insanely high voltages have been slightly tamed for longer tube life and reliability. Merren custom clone power and output transformers top off this sonic beauty.
The back panel includes an impedance selector for 16 ohms, 8 ohms and 100V (for PA use) just like the originals. Dual Mains voltage and Master Volume (PPIMV) are options that are available at no additional cost.
The insides are a work of art. Built meticulously by hand and using the best possible vintage correct components for sound and quality. Paxolin board, Piher resistors and mustard caps. Sprague filter caps are used throughout because they sound the closest to the originals.

Pictures indicate that both Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience used Super 100 amps extensively in 1966-67. These amps are commonly thought to have been used on Fresh Cream and Are You Experienced – something that seems probable if we judge by ear (however, Disraeli Gears might have been a later version). The Who is reported to have used all the early 100 watters live on guitar, bass, and PA, and some of these amps may have been used by Free as well. Also, Malcolm Young of AC/DC is reported (by Marshall Law magazine) to prefer a 100W plexi with white back panel (alongside a Superbass). According to Ritchie Fliegler, the amp Malcolm used on Ballbreaker had 625V on the plates of the KT66s (suggesting it is a #3B or possibly a #4A). However, the choke is rumoured to have been replaced with a big resistor in order to reduce screens voltage and increase tube life. Finally, Eric Johnson is supposed to have used several recreations of this amp over the last years.
Partly as a result of this there has been a renewed interest in these amps lately. The so-called JTM45/100 has gained reputation for having great clean and distorted tones without being overly loud or bright. Dimed, it can sound like Clapton on the Normal channel and Hendrix on the Brilliant channel.
