The lightest vacuum tube guitar amplifiers in the world

Handmade in Texas, USA.

Honeydripper Amps started with a simple idea: build a lightweight tube amp with great tone for the gigging musician. Introducing The Sugar Bee - our lightest amp weighing only 24 pounds and providing 45 watts of killer tube tone.... a real back saver for the musician that lacks roadies, yet demands great tone. This amp sounds fabulous; after all, it won the coveted Guitar Player’s “Editors Pick” Award

With a custom designed 12 inch speaker, the Sugar Bee provides endless possibilities for tonal variations through an array of voicing, drive, and boost options; and features classic analog spring reverb and tremolo.
