Kustom Engineers have tweaked the great-sounding Defender 5H and it has evolved to this MODded version. The Kustom Defender 5HMOD is a single channel 5W guitar amplifier, with varying speaker outputs, EL84 power amp and 12AX7 preamp, for pure vintage tube

Sonically Rich
Kustom Engineers took the great sounding Defender 5H and lifted the virtual hood to tweak its 5 Watt motor. The results were astonishing. The Defender 5 Hot Mod (Defender5HMOD) is made for vintage tube amp tone. Ceramic capacitors were upgraded with polyester film and electrolytic styles. Larger cap values allow more bottom end and more gain. This amp head has a livelier tone that is harmonically rich. With a better sounding distortion that delivers like older tweed and British style amps with much more note bloom that you expect only in boutique or vintage amps.To dial in the Hot Mod sound we put “chicken head” vintage style knobs on the Bass Response and Volume controls.

Stunning Clarity and Punch
When turning the Volume control down to get cleaner tones, the 5HMOD progressively reduces gain in multiple locations throughout the preamp circuit. The result is stunning clarity, even on medium-gain sounds that often sound lackluster in other amp designs. Then, when adding gain, it brings it on in multiple locations. The result is smoking hot rock tones with punch and clarity that simply blow away the competition.

Kustom Amps and Cabinets
Artists using Kustom products in the 1960s and ‘70s spanned a wide stylistic range from Rock (Creedence Clearwater Revival, Leon Russell, The MC5) to Country (Johnny Cash) to Pop (The Jackson 5, the Carpenters) to R&B (James Jamerson) and Jazz (Herbie Hancock). There are many reasons for this wide acceptance: higher power levels than the competition, product reliability, the visual flair and innovative features that other companies simply didn’t offer. Today, Kustom honors its trend-setting past by building award-winning amplifiers and P.A. systems with features and tones that inspire a whole new generation of players.
