Budda Amplification announces the availability of the Budda MN-100 and MN-412, a three-channel tube guitar amplifier head and 4x12 enclosure, featuring a custom Italian leather exterior by footwear designer Mark Nason.

The Budda MN-100 is a high-gain amplifier featuring three independent channels, a 120-watt power section driven by four EL34 tubes, and a preamp consisting of seven dual triode 12AX7 tubes.


The MN-100 also features dual 5U4 rectifier tubes and a solid-state rectifier, with Budda's PowerPan variable rectification control that allows players to select tube rectification, diode rectification or anywhere between the two.


All three of the Budda MN-100's independent channels - Clean, Rhythm and Lead - include separate three-band EQ, Reverb, Resonance, Presence, and true bypass effects loop with send and return levels. Each channel also features OVER-BOOST, a stompbox-style lead boost that engages an additional tube-driven gain circuit to give players a supercharged boost.


The included nine-button foot controller switches all three channels digitally via MIDI, effects loops and OVER-BOOST functions, as well as Master Reverb and Master Boost, which is a second Master Volume control that can be used to boost the overall volume of the amp.


The Budda MN-100 also features a half-power switch for operating the amplifier in either 60- or 120-watt mode. The back panel features an amplifier chain section with power-amp inputs and a slave output, impedance selector and MIDI input and output for use in MIDI-switching rigs. The matching MN-412 enclosure features four Budda Phat 12 loudspeakers and Mark Nason leather covering.
