The feel, dynamics and natural compression of these small single-ended valve amps has to be experienced. The instant response and feedback you get when playing, create a direct connection between your fingers and the speaker and fuel your performance.
The Studio 10’s simple controls allow you to quickly and easily dial in classic tones. From chimey cleans to musical, smooth overdrives that clean up beautifully when you roll off your guitar volume. At 10 Watts they each deliver stunning tone even at low volumes. To capture the true sonic experience of the power valves driving, or breaking up when driven the Emulated Output is take after the power stage. Every nuance of your sound can be easily recorded or run through a PA for larger venues. With a seamless blend of classic tone and boutique-inspired design, each amplifier takes its place alongside some of the world’s most revered studio amplifiers.
This Studio 10 EL34 is a low gain, classic crunch amplifier with an ECC83 valve in the preamp stage. A hot preamp Boost can be engaged – either via the front panel or the included footswitch – for authentic classic rock / indie rhythm playing and vocal leads. Much of the distinctive character of a single-ended valve amp comes from the way its power stage clips, bringing out the nuances of the chosen power amp valve. This Studio 10 amplifier features an EL34 power valve – influenced by classic British amplifiers – which produces a superlative, warm British crunch when pushed hard using the Master Volume. The 10 Watts of output power driving a Celestion speaker makes this Studio 10 EL34 the perfect amp for practising and recording at home or in the studio, and for smaller live performances.
Professional features such as a specially-voiced reverb, footswitching and an effects loop augment the sonic experience, making this amplifier fully equipped for today’s exacting performance requirements. Completing the versatile feature set, a cabinet emulated line output is included for silent practise, recording or for supporting your live sound into a PA. The signal for the emulated output is taken directly after the power amp to ensure that you can capture and record the tonal characteristics of the Class A configured EL34 power valve and output transformer being pushed into saturation.
