Vox has revived the classic all-tube AC10 with the Custom Series AC10C1, which brilliantly reproduces Vox’s legendary Top Boost sound in a lower-wattage amp with the addition of an onboard studio quality reverb for even more versatility.
The latest and greatest of the changes Orange has made to the Rockverb are reflected in the new Orange Rockerverb 100 MKIII 100-watt head, which provides impressive tonal refinements and new features certain to satisfy the most demanding players.
Carvin Amplifiers has long offered customers the ability to order bass and guitar amps covered in a handful of different colored vinyl. Along with standard black and tweed vinyl covering, Carvin Amplifiers expanded to offer customers colors such as red, white, blue and patterns such as Python Snakeskin.
Inspired by this morning's post about Kirk Hammett and Michael Schenker's jam session on last weekend's That Metal Show, we thought we'd share this clip of Zakk Wylde's recent visit to the show. In the video, which you can check out below, Wylde plays one of his new Wylde Audio guitars through one of his Wylde Audio amps.
Playing live might be the best way to hone your performance skills, but when it comes to technique, you need practice, practice, practice. If you play an electric guitar, your woodshedding sessions demand an amp that not only reveals the details and nuance of your playing but also sounds great—so great that it makes you want to practice more and become the best guitarist you can.
Vox has announced its new AC10C1, a 10-watt tube amplifier that joins Vox's flagship lineup of tube amps, the Custom Series. More portable than the AC15 and more powerful than the AC4, the AC10C1 provides an array of classic Vox tones and comes equipped with studio-quality reverb and a master volume.
In the boutique amp world, a 20-watt combo with a single 12-inch speaker usually means either one of two things: it’s either based on one of Fender’s various iterations of their Deluxe model or it’s inspired by Marshall’s model 1973 combo.
The ToneVille Broadway takes a different approach by combining the best of both American and British circuits, providing a wider variety of tones than its streamlined control panel might initially suggest.
During the Fifties and Sixties, Supro established a niche as a more affordable alternative to the guitars and amps available from music industry leaders like Fender and Gibson.
In 2013, Absara Audio bought the rights to the Supro name and revived the brand with a new line of reissue amps. Working together with master tube amp designer Bruce Zinky, David Koltai (of Pigtronix fame), developed new Supro amps that revive several of the most desirable models from the mid Sixties. The Supro 1624T Dual-Tone, 1690T Coronado and S6420 Thunderbolt are based on the 1964 versions of these models.
OK, this is kinda cool. Check out this just-posted video of Eddie Van Halen testing the new EVH Gear 5150IIIS amp head. The catch is, everything is shot with GoPro cameras, so you're seeing things from some pretty bizarre angles.
