Balch Custom, Deposit
The Balch Custom is all killer no filler and the weapon of choice from Fu Manchu’s lead crusher, Bob Balch.
This beast is based off the original British flame thrower of the early 80’s but with a few tweaks that help it cover a broader range of music styles. Check out the many YouTube demos and Fu Manchu shows with Bob and his signature Rola.
The cabinet is perfectly wrapped in a leather style tolex with a black/red cloth front panel. You pick the colors. Metal corners and a leather handle with four mounting screws make it extra durable. Chassis mounting hardware is ¼ stainless steel.
The Balch Custom and all Rola Amplifiers are hand made in the Pacific Northwest and built to last a lifetime.
As with all Rola Custom Shop amps, each Balch Custom is a build to order project.
