Selye : Fourteen Watts

selye.jpg

The Selye is a charming and versatile combination amplifier that comfortably fits in at home, studios, low volume shows or mic'd at any type of venue.  Offering fourteen watts of pure Class A output from a single-ended TAD 6L6WGC-STR design, this all tube amplifier is overflowing with pleasant sounding, second order harmonic distortion that allows clean chords and single notes to ring out fuller than any push-pull amplifier can offer.  Turn up the volume and the Tung-Sol 12AX7 gracefully adds more than enough odd-ordered harmonics to give a present, yet smooth and balanced overdriven sound; perfect for anything from jazz to shoegazey indie rock.  The straight forward high/low sensitivity inputs and hi-fi styled treble/bass controls cover an expansive array of tones yet leaves the overall sound to be directed by your pedals, guitar and playing style.  The cabinet is constructed in 1/2" solid wood (walnut, pecan, maple, Brazilian cherry or bamboo) using half-blind dovetail joints.

Moseley : Eighteen Watts

The Moseley amplifier covers some slightly different ground with the help of a fantastic articulation of a crystal clear EL84 driven power section.  When pushed the adequately filtered power section, over-sized M6 steel laminated transformers and solid state rectifier work together to let loose a huge, tight, low end crunch that still allows you to ease back into warm and articulate cleans by turning down your guitar's volume control.  The preamp consists of one Tung-Sol 12AX7, volume, treble and bass controls, which feeds another Tung-Sol 12AX7 phase inverter.  The amplified and out-of-phase signals are then sent to a matched and burned in pair of TAD EL84-STRs for up to eighteen watts of power.  The cabinet is constructed in 1/2" solid wood (walnut, pecan, maple, Brazilian cherry or bamboo) using half-blind dovetail joints.

Boulton : Forty-Two Watts

 

 

Whether you're looking for full and pronounced cleans, heavy hitting overdriven tones or anywhere in between, the Boulton amplifier will have you covered. Keeping the foundation simple (high/low inputs and volume/treble/bass controls) allows for the unique design decisions to shine through in this somewhat unusual combination of components.  The amp starts out with a vintage styled Fender Bassman power transformer that adds character and warmth in the lowered B+ voltage throughout the circuit.  After the preamp (via two Tung-Sol 12AX7s), a pair of JJ 7027As take the signal to create a strong and strident output with the help of a vintage styled paper bobbin Marshall JCM800 spec'd output transformer. The combination of components and unique circuitry allows for any type of tone to be achieved while also being a fantastic pedal platform.

The two by twelve cabinet is constructed in 1/2" solid wood (walnut, pecan, maple, Brazilian cherry or bamboo) using half-blind dovetail joints.
