You’re in front of a tube amplifier that generates full sensations at low volumes. Its Gain control allows drive / overdrive / crunch saturations without turning up the volume. In addition, the Volume control works as a Master control: turning it down doesn´t mean losing everything, and turning it up shows you that 5W give a lot.
There’s something really special when we create amplifiers with this type of “Single Ended” power (it means that we use a single tube to make the power stage): when we are testing it, it’s like getting the sound of the string transmitted purely to the speaker, with a quickness and naturalness that fascinates us. That’s why our Home-Audio devices are also “Single Ended”.
You can use this amplifier at home, at the studio or live (using a microphone to capture the sound of the speaker cabinet), the result is always impressive. When you are recording at the studio you can set the volume at the perfect decibels for capturing the sound with the best microphones.
In addition to meeting the performance requirements, we know that an amplifier must also meet aesthetical needs. Here they are.
¿And does it work well with effects pedals? Thanks to the design and impedance of the first preamp stage, you can connect any pedal to its input, what makes it really fun. Without complications, just plug in your effects unit and enjoy all the effects through a true analog tube circuit. Definition, dynamics and warmness go hand in hand.
If you like brands like Fender, Matchless, Ampeg or Bogner, then this amplifier is for you.
