65amps introduces The Producer amp with 28 watts from a pair of EL34s 09-Jan-12
65amps has introduced their newest guitar amplifier, The Producer which they say creates classic tone with modern tubes. They tell us that this innovative 28-Watt amplifier utilizes a unique tube circuit that addresses the characteristics of modern tubes in a new way.
65amps' Dan Boul, told Amped "Copying old circuits is becoming more and more dangerous due to the fact that old circuits were designed around tubes that could take high voltage, and modern tubes just can't." 65amps has created The Producer as their own, unique solution to coaxing consistent and reliable classic tube warmth from modern tubes. Here's more details in 65amps' own words...
The Producer runs its pair of EL34s in an extremely safe and unconventional way. With help from Mercury Magnetics, 65amps developed a unique transformer and circuitry that allows EL34s to produce great tone in such a way that they last for an extremely long time – we're talking decades. Aside from eliminating costly re-tubing, this new approach simply delivers both an outstanding classic distortion, and a fantastic clean tone.
Many players find EL34 amps too loud for their liking, and are forced to use attenuators or master volumes to compensate. The 28-Watt Producer takes advantage of 65amps' proprietary Master Voltage circuit to deliver tone-rich distortions and cleans at reasonable volumes.
The Producer has two channels, each with an independent 65amps Bump control, which allows for four distinct voices – all accessible through a standard 2-button foot-switch. With 65amps legendary build quality and style, the Producer solidly delivers versatile, luscious tone. Pricing and Availability:
