Josh Doll came by the shop a week ago and went nuts with his camera thats bigger than my car.
this is the result!
this is a KT88 duet powered version of the original circuit. its a highly modified, unique circuit thats a 2 channel with midrange contour, that has multiple unique and very rare amplifier voices melded together in a way that i have never heard or seen before, ever.. the results do speak for themselves. i am very, very happy with the way that this circuit turned out. this amp’s voice is the result of many months of work and a good amount of demo’ing. its a from scratch design that i labored over every single smidge of this monster. this particular amp is loaded with custom mercury magnetics transformers that sergio from mercury and i worked together on to push up to a pair of KT120 power tubes way beyond standard design limits. i was very lucky to have the help and assistance of someone so talented.. who was also committed to furthering tube amp design, and not just aping the past.
i feel that this core transformer foundation provides a very unique, one of a kind sound that really pushes the KT series tubes to produce what they are really capable of. this amp also has 1980′s era made in UK HIWATT power filtration caps throughout for massive reserves of backbone for low tunings. anywhere we could put in “the good stuff” in the places that matter for tone, power and reliability, it got it.
please note that this amp, true to my original circuit design, is designed to be a MASSIVE CLEAN platform with just a slight bit of hair on the outer limits of gain settings, as per the original design notes. it is capable of handling the hottest pedals, multiple distortions, choruses, and other wide frequency modifiers without “running out of gas” it sings, it screams, it breathes so hard that on 1, running 2 cabinets, you can feel the air in the room push and pull with palm mutes and unison bends. so, if you expect to crank this thing up and get fuzz for days, ya gotta run a pedal.
you must run large oversized sealed back cabinets with this amp to get its full potential. the 4×12/2×15 setup i feel is ideal for it.
2 6×12′s would also really tie the room together.
the audio on this is recorded with 2 cabinets, 4×12 and 2×15, 2 mics. effects are only: line6 m13 set to a univibey preset, and an ionostrofear 2.5 fuzz pedal with all controls maxed. guitar is a mongrel tele tuned to drop A with dimarzio PAF classic pickups in it.
the headshell is gloss wood whitewashed fabric patterns from the 1940′s, and the faceplate is from an unassembled piece of scientific equipment that was etched, drilled but never assembled into its final form. the rest of the amp is trimmed out with copper coated corners, knobs and handle brackets. the handle is hand wrapped leather.
this amp is 2500 and is available now. 2 channels, double depth, input gain pad and midrange control. as per the original.
god help whomever is near this thing.
