30W British Rock Amplifier

Based on arguably the "true" original British amplifier, the SonicTone Royal Crown 30 (or RC30) brings an absolute classic tone to the SonicTone line up. The journey of this style of amplifier is an interesting one. It started as a clean, crisp amp, powering pop rock groups in the late 50's and early 60's. Then, as other new options arose in the British amplifier market, this amp evolved to keep up with the times. By the time the 1970's rolled around, this amp could not only hold its own against its British rivals, it had a dominate market share on the stage of some of the most famous bands of all time - contributing to those bands unique, stand-out sound. It truly captures the tone and spirit of that sound in a small, but powerful package.
Don't be fooled by its humble, classic origins - this amp is a titan of rock tone - delivering everything from chime-y cleans to rich harmonic overdrives.
Recommended Speaker Pairing: Celestion 25-watt Greenbacks for accentuated overdrive, or a 15-watt Alnico Blues for a more vintage, mellow sound.
Available as a head or 2x12 combo.
