VOX TB35C1 & TB35C2 Shipping
VOX Amplification has joined forces with boutique amp designer Tony Bruno to create the all-tube TB35C1 and TB35C2 guitar amplifiers.
Employing four 6V6 power tubes and a tube-driven reverb section featuring a premium Accutronics spring tank, these amps are designed to be "warm and clean with a very touch sensitive response."
The all-tube design of both models features a quartet of 6V6 power tubes, known for their "smooth and clean high end, creamy mids, big bass, and for their rich “breakup” when pushed," according to the company. The preamp stage is driven by three 12AX7 preamp tubes, plus an additional 12AX7 paired with a 12AT7 tube to drive the reverb unit. The single-channel preamp offers both High and Low level inputs, as well as Volume, Bass, Middle, and Treble controls. External speaker jacks and extension cabinet jacks are standard on both models. The TB35C1 (1 x 12”) and TB35C2 (2 x 12”) are equipped with Celestion G12-65 speakers – designed to give the amp a "precisely tuned mid-range and crisp, defined top-end" – mounted into birch-ply cabinets.
- Macho switch: This footswitchable feature is designed to provide a boost to the mids and overall gain structure.
- Bass Boost: Turning the Bass Boost on is designed to enhance the warm and round low-end response coming from the instrument.
- Master Volume bypass: The addition of a Master Volume control is designed to allow the amps to achieve a full overdriven tone at lower listening levels. For the purist, the Master Volume bypass switch removes the Master Volume from the circuit.
This all-tube design is defined by a custom-built transformer and an Accutronics spring reverb tank, designed to be able to go from "a subtle shimmer to long “Surf-style” decay – and all points in between – while maintaining the warm and rich tube tone synonymous with Bruno amplifiers," the company says
