Ever since its beginnings, in the middle of the XXth century, amplification for electric guitar has evolved dramatically. Ranging from a simple and compact sized amplifier through to the professional setups like racks “fridges” and oversized pedalboards, we are today in the digital era. Todays guitarists demand increasing power and volume from their amplifiers and without compromise on their tone. Yet is is still considered that tube amplification is by far the favorite amplifier type with guitarists, for its warm and organic tonal qualities and especially for its response to the way in which the player uses their guitar – e.g rolling back the volume to clean up, or picking harder for a more aggressive attack. It was nevertheless necessary to adapt it to today’s needs. A compact amp that is easy to carry and have sufficient power to meet the players needs. Many brands have begun to answer this call, but the amps offered are not as customizable and the recognized high standards have never really been matched in a compact amplifier, by most manufacturers.

It is to this very problem that we have chosen to provide a solution. A very high quality amplifier, capable of reproducing the most famous circuits in todays range of amplifiers, leaving the choice of these to the customer. All in a compact format and for an extremely reasonable price. To achieve this affordable result and rather than design an amp from scratch, we have chosen to use a quality base perfectly suited to this work. This is the JET CITY 22H. This amp is then stripped of most of its components and rebuilt with ‘top shelf’ high quality components, whilst still scrupulously respecting the specifications of the original circuits that the customer chooses. The circuit is 100% identical and the components used strictly the same. No compromise is given and all efforts are made to achieve the absolute goal for the customer. Many combinations are possible and can be selected from the list below. You will then receive a high performance amp that can accompany you everywhere. With a power adapted to play just as well at home, thanks to the uniquely progressive controls, as it is in a studio or on stage. Usable with one or more speakers and also with a load box / simulator from HP.
Each amplifier has two distinct channels, clean and dirty, 100% separated from each other at the circuit level and at the tube level. This allows you to refine the sound of each channel as much as possible, by choosing the tubes per channel without any interaction with the other . This feature is extremely rare. The amp has an effects loop that accepts all types of processors whether pedals or racks. Each channel is chosen by the client according to their tastes or needs. The amp is guaranteed 3 years except tubes and errors of use.
NOTE : The amp itself is not supplied and must be provided by the customer. This can be a simple process, since it is easy to have it delivered to us directly from the store, which generally sends it at its own expenses. You have no operations to perform. Just wait for the delivery of your amp that will usually be done in 8 days turnaround.
