50W British Blues/Rock Amplifier

The SonicTone '67 Special is a throwback to beginning of British rock n roll. The story of how it all started across the pond is well documented in the sound of records that were produced in the 1960's and 1970's. British guitar players developed their style around this new raucous, crunchy sound they were getting from newly developed amplifiers that had never before heard harmonics and sustain.
With a set of modern features like the negative feedback and rectifier selector switches, this amp can actually give you a wide range of tones. On the "smooth" NFB setting with the tube rectifier, the amp will sound looser and more compressed like the first British amps from 1962. On the "punchy" setting with the solid-state rectifier, the amp will sound tighter and more aggressive, like the British amps that started appearing in the mid-to-late 1960's.
In addition to that, the 2 channels are in parallel like the original circuit, but instead of having a set of 4 inputs to jumper together, there's only one input and the channels are controlled via the footswitch or front panel switches. This allows you to use any combination of them blended together. Like the original circuit, channel 1 is voiced darker and channel 2 is voiced brighter, and it allows you to dial in the perfect mix between the two to get the tone you want.
With all of these options, this amp really represents the beginning of a glorious era of amped-up blues and rock n roll.
Recommended Speaker Pairing: Celestion 25-watt Greenbacks or 65-watt Creambacks for accentuated overdrive and clarity.
Available as a head or a 1x12 combo.
