American-Modded British Rock Amplifier
Got a question about this product? Ask us!
The year 1987 was a banner year for music. The sheer number of incredible albums released, particularly in the rock and metal genres, was astounding. At the forefront was a rude and brash band that was destined to rule the airwaves. And at the center of that band's sound was a guitar player with tremendously soulful skills and a tone that had a venomous bite. The Snakecharmer is an amp that encapsulates that tone and delivers searing overdrives that transport you right back to the Sunset Strip.
The tone of this amp stands out differently than other high-gain models. It has a pronounced mid-range bite with crisp highs. In the ‘87 mode, it has a tight-end low with tight gain. In the ‘91 mode, the tone shifts to a thicker, more modern tone with more gain. Either way, it's a versatile amp that suits the player's style very well. It accentuates each and every note and gives it what it needs to cut through the mix. It truly is a "raunch n roll" tone and suited for a style of playing with tons of attitude to spare.
Recommended Speaker Pairing: Celestion 60-watt Vintage 30s for a well-balanced sound, or 75-watt G12Ts for a more modern sound with a little more top-end.
Available as a head.
