This is a Class A 5 Watt amp, that features a handwired circuitry similar to that of the Fargen Mini Plex MKII, but in a smaller package.

Even though it only measures 16.5 x 9 x 7 inches, this amp packs a surprisingly powerful and versatile tube tonality. Since it is based on the Mini Plex MKII, this amp churns out English classic rock tones and high gain crunch tones in practice and bedroom levels.

The Micro Plex is the first production amp by Fargen, and it is stripped down to only the most essential controls. However basic tone flexibility is provided thanks to its push-pull gain and tone shift modes. Priced at $999 MSRP, Fargen considers this amp as their entry level boutique amp offer.

Ben Fargen, Founder and CEO was quoted saying: “Players looking to upgrade to the boutique market can grab the Micro Plex’s top‐shelf tone, at a non‐ boutique price. And boutique customers looking for a compact amp will find a lot of tone in this package. Think of this as the little brother to the Mini Plex; it is a wonderful way to capture your rock vibe.”

Here are some audio samples of the Micro Plex tube tone:

Fargen Amplification wants the Micro Plex to be a boutique amp offered by retailers at a relatively affordable price. It is expected to be available for shipment within the 2012 holiday season. You can check out this compact tube amp, along with Fargen's complete line of amps and Sonic Edge pedals, at the upcoming Winter NAMM show.
