Today Taurus has announced their special order Stomp-Head 5.CE will now go into mass production. This Custom Edition of the popular Taurus Stomp-Head range – essentially a collection of amplifiers that are the size of a large pedal but pack a serious tube-driven punch – is a three-channel, 90 watt model with clean, drive and high-gain modes.

It’s a great asset for travelling players who don’t wish to jump over to the digital amp-modeling side of thing but need a reliable portable amp that still pushes some serious sound. Check out the full specs below and Aussie players can hit up the local distro at
