Burgerman's Clean sound? A Custom 50

Brett 'Burgerman' Kingman has a healthy community following for his You Tube review channel that focuses on all things guitar.

BUT - what does he use when he needs the ultimate clean tone to demo a new instrument or effect?

That's right - his trusty Hiwatt custom 50 combo. Gobs of headroom, crystal clear ocean deep cleans and tone for days. Check out this review which features MC Systems BSL Hybrid Chorus through the Custom 50. Good enough to eat.
