The Spanky MKII is an update of our popular Spanky amplifier with its’ classic Blackface preamp with an expanded mid-range frequency control and combines that with an over-built power supply to deliver throwback tone with extra headroom and punch making it an insane pedal-platform amp. With the mid control set around 10 o’clock, you’re in classic Blackface territory. Push the mids past noon, you’re entering Tweed Land with an excellent midrange growl. The Spanky MKII boasts new features such as the addition of our patented HybridMASTER and the ambient mode studio-quality reverb circuit from our award winning Dual Citizen amplifier.

Hand-built in Nashville, TN, The Wooly Coats Spanky MKII features HybridMASTER and Studio-quality Reverb
NASHVILLE, TN – April 5, 2017 – 3RD POWER is excited to announce the new Wooly Coats Spanky MKII amplifier to its line of award winning amplifiers, hand-built in the company’s East Nashville, Tennessee shop.
Operating on a pair of 6V6 output tubes, the new 15 watt Spanky MKII is 3RD Power’s response to overwhelming customer demand for a Spanky combo amp with reverb and HybridMASTER. The Spanky MKII is a single channel 112 combo amplifier that expands on the Wooly Coats Spanky brand of clean American guitar tones, with its’ unique mid-range frequency control that takes you from Blackface to Tweed, by introducing core professional features of it’s bigger brother, the Extra Spanky. During the development of the Spanky MKII, 3RD Power brought together the original design of the Spanky and the Extra Spanky and merged them into an exciting new unit. The goal was simple: create a fresh update to the Spanky without changing the tone or the feel while including our acclaimed tube driven spring reverb circuitry and our patented HybridMASTER. With the company’s proprietary HybridMASTER volume management circuitry, your guitar tone can be achieved at whatever volume level is right for the room.
“I’ve been hearing from players, ‘I love the Extra Spanky but I don’t need 35 watts,’ so basically we’ve gone ahead and developed an Extra Spanky at half the power. And while we were at it, we brought the price down substantially. The Spanky MKII is a wonderfully versatile and inspiring tube guitar amplifier with a wide range of Blackface and Tweed style tone capabilities but now with our studio-quality tube driven spring reverb on-board as well as our own HybridMASTER circuitry. I couldn’t be more pleased with the performance of the new Spanky MKII amplifier,” said Dylana Nova Scott, 3rd Power’s founder and amp designer.
