Iceberg Amps, a new Great Britain-based company, announces the availability of its first ultra compact tube guitar amp.
Named 5184 Bluesy British (or Steel Chicken), Iceberg Amps founder Dusan Mihajlovic’s (aka Dr. Spira) first guitar amp is a British-style 2 channel combo that provides 0.2W and up to 6W of power.
It uses for this three ECC83 preamp tubes and one EL84 in the power stage, custom transformers and a 5" Jensen speaker.
The Clean channel features a gain knob, a three-band EQ with a switch that allows for moving the treble center frequency and a Bright/Neutral/Smooth switch. You can control the Drive canal with drive, tone, volume, color (Bright/Neutral/Smooth switch) adjustments and a Shift switch.
On the rear, you’ll find a power level knob, a Pentode, Ultra Linear ad Triode mode switch and two Auto or Fixed bias modes. The connections include a line output, a balanced XLR line output, an effect loop, a speaker output and a footswitch connector.
The combo ships with a four-button footswitch for switching channels (also available on the front), modes (individual channels of mix), and enabling/disabling effects for each channel.
The 210 × 190 × 170mm steel chassis weighs 6.6kg and the price is £1900.
Two other combos will soon be available: the 6190 Twangy American will boost the power up to 12W and will use ECC83 and KT90 valves, while the 8284 Edgy British Brute, a vintage heavy metal style combo, will provide up to 17W of power and will host ECC83 and EL84 valves.
