The Barbeaux Amplifcation Lil' Sis Desktop Head is a tastefully tweaked 5F2-A Tweed Princeton.  It sounds fantastic and offers a wide range of tonal options from clean to cranked gains.  The front control knobs are simple volume on the left and tone on the right.

There are also two modifications that allow for deviations from the original 5F2-A to maximize versatility and compatibility with different pickups - 3-way switchable "fat" switch (gradually boosts mids/gain) on the front panel and On/Off global negative feedback switch on the rear next to the speaker output jack.

This is a small amp "head" occupying a roughly 7.5" x 7.5" footprint (+ ~2" for handle) is built in a Hammond Diecast Aluminum chassis - CNC cut in-house for perfect fit and finish.  Component lists as follows:
