Joyo Audio has announced the latest compact head to join the BanTamP family of lunchbox amplifiers, the XL Jackman II. Like its previous iteration, this 20-watt head equips both clean and overdrive channels, only this time, each sports its own set of dedicated controls.

Like its predecessor, the XL Jackman II is described as a British-voiced tube amplifier and packs a single 12AX7 preamp tube. Newly-added controls on the mini-amp include volume, gain and tone knobs for both channels. This version also includes an external footswitch for toggling between channels – which is a nice option for those that might fumble with the tiny onboard switch.

In addition to its compact size, other appointments – including Bluetooth connectivity, an effects loop and a headphone output – mean this amp could be particularly handy in a home practice rig. Take a look at Joyo’s product demo below.

The XL Jackman II is priced at $179. Learn more at Joyoaudio.com
