"I like to refine my circuits and layouts to the point where they are so simple that it's almost a joke. Each time I build an amplifier I refine it more and more. The goal is not to make it easier to build or save money - a simple amp circuit just tends to sound best." -Tim Marcus

We're going to let Tim tell you about this killer new amp - but - our take? It's amazing. It's what a lot of players have been looking for for a long time. Killer Fender-esq tones, smart (and useful!) features....and it's a heck of a lot smaller than any amp you need to lug around. With headphones on, it's very, very similar to being in a studio w/cans on, listening to a mic'd up Deluxe Reverb. We're sold. 

From Tim...

"What is The Amp? First and foremost, it's a 50W guitar amplifier. The preamp is based around a single 12AX7 running at high voltage in a discrete Class A circuit. The tube preamp reacts with a guitar the same way any tube amplifier does: it generates harmonics and the sweet sounding high fidelity tone that tubes are known for. Along with tube EQ, there are on-board reverb and tremolo effects so that The Amp can be used as a grab and go amplifier. Foot switches for bypassing the effects are built in. A Class D power section delivers 50 watts into 8 ohms, or 100 watts into 4 ohms. The Speakon combination jack for speaker output takes either a standard 1/4" connection or a locking Speakon connector for extra security." 

Any player looking for a home or recording amp - or - gigging players looking for a super portable, killer sounding amp that could live on your pedalboard, this is simply a no-brainer. You want this, trust us.
