Coming SoonSquire 86
The Squire 86 is a preamplifier based on the vintage AC15/AC30 EF86 channel. It uses an EF86 pentode running at high voltage. Controls include Volume, Treble (similar to the "Cut" control on a Vox AC30), a 3-way Bass switch and a 3-way Bright switch.
Suitable for use as a preamp into a power amp or cabinet simulator, the Squire 86 also works very well in front of an amp as a versatile boost. It also breaks up very nicely when pushed with some of our other preamps, especially with the Constable.Jester Custom
The Jester Custom is an up-dated version of the Jester. The modifications include:
The Boost circuit is now before the Overdrive circuit, as opposed to after. This allows the Boost to be used to push the overdrive channel into higher gain. The Boost circuit has also been up-dated to optimize it for pushing the Jester overdrive circuit.
The Overdrive cicuit now also includes a control on the back panel that when rotated clockwise, takes the stock Jester V2 tone and adds brightness or "sizzle" to the sound. This makes the overdrive channel sound more present with more top end bite - great for rock tones. For the smoother stock V2 response, roll the "Sizzle" control anti-clockwise.
A switch on the back panel increases the overdrive channel's output and clarity, making the Jester suitable for preamp use.
Price TBA.Crucible - 1w Valve Power Amp...Now Shipping
The Crucible is a 1W power amp is a push pull, cathode biased tube amplifier that uses a 12ax7 as the phase inverter tube and the two halves of a 12au7 as the push-pull output pair.
Hook up a speaker for low volume applications or use the built in reactive dummy load and variable line out to drive effects and cab sims for a direct rig. Or run a speaker and use the line out to drive effects and another power amp for a wet/dry rig.
Used with the Maiden, Squire, Juggler or Constable preamps, the 1W power amp adds the missing link for the full tube amp experience, both for recording and performance.
