The guitar gurus at 65amps created the Empire tube amplifier head to bring you classic British amp tones. Four years of research went into the Empire guitar amp, capturing the subtleties of vintage British amps. With the included footswitch you can easily switch between three distinct voicings - a cleaner '60s tone, "fat and dirty" early-'70s tone, and high-gain '80s tone. And the acclaimed "Bump" control lets you completely change the gain structure of the amplifier for even more versatility. Long story short, you get classic British tone with modern craftsmanship and innovation with the 65amps Empire guitar amplifier.65amps Empire 22-watt Tube Guitar Amplifier Head at a Glance
- Innovative design for conjuring classic British tone
- Bump control gives you more options than extra channels offer
- Master Voltage control lets you cut volume, without killing tone
The tone wizards at 65amps pulled off the seemingly impossible - they packed a pair of 6V6 power amp tubes into the Empire amp, yet they sound like vintage EL34s. The secret's in the unique handwired circuitry they've created, and the result is a wide range of classic tone you can't achieve with other amplifiers.Bump control gives you more options than extra channels offer
The Empire uses 65amps' proprietary Bump switch to give you more voicing options than most amps offer. Here's how 65amps describes this feature: "The Bump allows the user gain-up and re-slope the amp's tone stack, allowing much more midrange to flow through the circuit; thereby gaining up the entire amp naturally and not inducing false preamp gain that creates fizz and buzz." So it's kind of like kicking on an overdrive pedal, and kind of like a midrange boost. With the Empire's Bump switch and its three voicing options, you've got access to six distinct voices at any time.Master Voltage control lets you cut volume, without killing tone
Thanks to the Empire guitar amplifier head's Master Voltage control, you can get the output volume you need, without risking the tone or feel of your amp. As opposed to many in-amp voltage-reduction system, which simply starve the power tubes, the Empire's Master Voltage control preserves the internal tube relationships while maintaining the proper filament voltage. This unique approach to voltage control lets you pull your output power all the way down to 3W, without either jeopardizing your sound or dynamics, providing you with ideal note-for-note articulation at whatever volume you need.65amps Empire 22-watt Tube Guitar Amplifier Head Features
