65amps introduces their newest guitar amplifier, The Producer.
This 28-Watt amplifier utilizes a tube circuit designed to address the characteristics of modern tubes in a new way.
65amps’ Dan Boul says, “Copying old circuits is becoming more and more dangerous due to the fact that old circuits were designed around tubes that could take high voltage, and modern tubes just can't.” 65amps say that they have created The Producer as their own solution to coaxing consistent and reliable classic tube warmth from modern tubes.
The Producer runs its pair of EL34s in an unconventional way, the company says. With help from Mercury Magnetics, 65amps developed a transformer and circuitry that allows EL34s to produce tone in such a way that they last for a long time – decades. Aside from eliminating costly re-tubing, this new approach is designed to deliver classic distortion and a clean tone.
The company says that many players find EL34 amps too loud for their liking, and are forced to use attenuators or master volumes to compensate, 65amps thinks. The 28-Watt Producer is designed to use the company's Master Voltage circuit to deliver distortions and cleans at reasonable volumes.
The Producer has two channels, each with an independent 65amps Bump control, which allows for four distinct voices – all accessible through a standard 2-button foot-switch.
