Wood Head - from $2200*



This amp features a 2 channel preamp to maximize the clean to mildly distorted tones on one channel, and the mild to wild distortion tones on the other channel. Big clean tones on channel one make for a very pedal friendly channel, as well, the cleans have a classic sparkle and a mild edge when driven hard for a great blues tone. Channel two takes you from classic rock tones to heavy distorted tones for a versatility not easily found elsewhere. Available in 50W and 100W configurations. EL34s are standard, however this amp is compatible with 6L6, 5881, KT66, and KT77 power tubes for greater tone coloring. Also features the 4-8-16 ohm impedance switch.

Tonic Amps custom shop offers a wide variety of options from complete custom amp builds to tonal shaping options on production amps.

Hall Electronics VVR
The Dana Hall designed Variable Voltage Regulator (VVR) allows the whole amp to be run at a varied B+ voltage. This feature varies the power of the amp from full power down to 10% power. It also maintains the ratios of the operation throughout the amp so the feel of the amp is not disturbed, only the output level.

Harmonics Control
This control takes the amp from full push/pull to single ended operation, and anything in between. By varying the control towards SE, more even order harmonics are present and the resulting tone is big and warm. It also lowers the output level and distorts earlier. Varying the control towards PP dials in more headroom, tighter bass, and a crisp, punchy output.
