[NAMM] 3rd Power HybridMaster
3rd Power Amplification announces its new proprietary patent-pending tube amplifier volume management circuitry, HybridMASTER.
HybridMASTER is a proprietary real-time volume control technology that is designed to reduce the perceived sound level of vacuum tube based guitar amplifiers. Users can adjust their amplifier’s controls to taste and then set the overall volume via the HybridMASTER control knob. HybridMASTER technology is initially available exclusively on 3RD POWER’s Dream Series amplifier line.
According to the company, as you engage the single HybridMASTER control, elements such as AC signal attenuation, DC current limiting and DC voltage regulation simultaneously synchronize to a proprietary algorithm developed by 3RD POWER.
Effective immediately, all Dream Series amplifiers will feature HybridMASTER. Retail pricing for Dream Series heads is set at $2499, 112 combos at $2899, Celestion 12” Gold equipped combos will be $3099. Existing customers will have the option to have their original Dream Series amplifier upgraded at the factory for a fee of $295 including return UPS ground shipping in the continental USA.
Dream Series amplifiers featuring HybridMASTER will make their public debut at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, July 21-23, 2011. 3RD Power Amplification is located in booth #1525.
