The Guitar Valve Amplifier COMBO 1×12 ″ was built in Italy Point-to-Point with Biconic speaker.
A couple of words on the Tubes and the Reverberation:
The Pre-amplifer tube is a EF86 NOS, a pentode that has a high gain, a precise and defined sound, a balanced frequency range (and that is the reason why it is in the tube Hi-Fi) and a unique timbre especially with clear and crunch sound.
The Hammond is controlled by a tube ECC83 Groove Tubes and by a ECL82 NOS.
The tubes that brings the sound of the Pre-amplifier to the Amplifier is an original ECC82 MULLARD NOS (this high quality tube makes the difference!).
The two pilot tubes are ECC83 Tungsol.
The output tubes are two new Mullard EL34, that sound really good!
A couple of words on the Transformers:
We use input and output transformers made especially for us, that are very like the one we used fifty years ago, big and heavy, oversize perfect for a real guitar valve amplifier!
This is the engine of the tube, we do not compromise on high performances!
A couple of words on the Tone Control:
The valve amplifier LC4 has an innovative tone control… high, low and medium were not enough! We used two independent section of the pre-amplifier and we joint them together:
BASS CHANNEL controls low, medium and volume.
The sound is focused on the low and medium pitch, the tone is simply controlled but in a very effective way you can control a clamorous punch and a Jazz definition!
HIGH CHANNEL has a default equalization and it is possible to control the volume.
The clear, biting sound that are missing in the first channel are emphasized by the volume control, not by a simple tone …
That is the key:
Two opposite sound that can be mixed together, as you wish. You almost have infinite sound combination… It is the same as having two amps and mixing the sound they make… you can test it!
A Master volume that controls the sound of the two channels, the saturation of the amplifier tubes and the volume. Moreover it diversifies the combination of the two channels and allows to control the saturation of the pre-amplifier tubes. In the rear panel there is a switch that increase the power from 60 W to 25 W and halve the tension of the amplifier tubes. The dynamics and the saturation of the tubes is faster and the compressor is higher.
It took months to develop this circuit and to obtain its ultimate expression… there is no need of a fx loop for a lot of pedals: the sound of each musician and their pedals goes through the main input, called “INPUT”, 0 db or 10 db for powerful signal… the amplifier does the rest!
A couple of words on the Speaker:
It took many attempts and tests we designed two different 12″ with two different timbre response:
A warmer and softer timbre, with a good balance and frequency extension… low pitch deep and precise a crystal clear sound that accurately reproduce all the harmonic.
The timbre reproduces clear sounds of any kind of music, from jazz to blues, to the folk and can be also unconventionally used to amplify from rhodes to sinth, to a voice filtered by the tubes!
The other timbre, more aggressive has a rock sound! With a clear and precise sound that never get lost, even in the most noisy stages and when there is the distortion the timber don’t dry out, the sound is clear and nothing get lost!
The choice is yours…
There it is a combo that will surprise every guitarist and phonic that will have the opportunity to use it!
