The (((RAYGUN ’59™))) 20w Class A 1x12 combo
The RayGun'59™ is a nod to Atomic Era amps, is Brit-American double agent 20*watt 1x12 Combo amp that can handle its own on stage with a rich bloom, jangle and sparkle to its clean tone that can easily jump forward to a saturated and texture tone that is rich in upper harmonic frequencies. This amp is a roots rock players delight that jumps, swings, bops and snarls in response to the players touch and attack. Varying degrees of output and punch are on hand with a master volume control that dials itself out of the mix when turned up, perfect for the guitarists that prefer to control their vol on the guitar.
As well the dual 6L6 power tubes (or 6v6 or EL34..ya!) will pump up to 20watts output of grindy twang n spank Class A power. To change gears toward a leaner Brit vibe You can drop the power down to roughly 12w by swapping in EL34's, no need to rebias. More so with the flip of a switch next to the socket you can even install 6V6's and bring the amp down to a bubbly sweet 8w of studio level pwr. 12ax7s in the preamp as well as the tube spring reverb, and the vintage style tube bias tremelo.
This amp was designed to combine the vintage vibe of the late 50's cathode biased F style deluxe and the cathode biased, non-negative feedback response of the early JMI AC-15, while maintaining its own immediate responsive snap and meaty footprint handled by the stock Weber Silverbell Alnico 100w 12" spkr.
I've also created a custom Nocturne 50 watt Alnico speaker that is based on the chicago era P12n but with a British silver bulldog style cone. This is excellent for those looking for earlier mids break up and compression. This speaker is an upgrade option.
