BC Audio Amplifier No. 9 & No. 10
BC Audio has introduced two new models, Amplifier No. 9 and Amplifier No. 10.
The new models combine classic power sections with octal preamp designs and BC Audio's point‐to‐point wiring. The entire BC Audio line will be demonstrated at the LA Amp Show on October 1 & 2.
Amplifier No. 9 is a 45‐watt non‐Master Volume amplifier with a variable foot‐switchable Boost. The combination of a pair of KT66s and a GZ34 rectifier comes with Amplifier No. 9’s three octal 6SL7 preamp tubes.
Amplifier No. 9 is described as the big brother to the Amplifier No. 7, with more power and a built‐in Boost. Controls are Normal Volume, Bright Volume, Boost (footswitch included), Presence and Depth. An optional tube‐buffered effects loop features Send Level, Return Level and a True Bypass switch. Amplifier No. 9 has selectable 4, 8 or 16 ohm output impedance.
Amplifier No. 10 is a no‐holds‐barred 5-watt amp which features a pair of EL34s and four 6SL7s, and is BC Audio's first model with Bass, Mid, and Treble controls. Other controls are Gain, Gain Boost, Volume, Volume Boost, Presence, and Depth. Gain Boost and Volume Boost are independently foot‐switchable with the included dual footswitch.
A tube‐buffered effects loop with Send Level, Return Level and a True Bypass switch is provided on the rear panel. Amplifier No. 10 has selectable 4, 8 or 16 ohm output impedance.
