For players in search of more volume.

The Jet Black 38W tube guitar amp head features a second pair of EL-84s to double its output for a louder and tighter tone. Wide open and gloriously unrestrained, the Jet Black packs a visceral gut punch that feels big, yet it’s still agile, responsive and dynamic. The Jet Black boasts straightforward and easy-to-use design that features 38 watts through a quartet of EL84s, two channels, tremolo and reverb.

The reimagined first channel presents a forward, upfront personality that's sharp and cleans ring with authority. The amp is easily provoked into healthy amounts of gain, all this from a single channel. The second channel is built for a rock-oriented amp that spans decades of landmark tones while retaining a unique personality.

A new 3-band EQ has a pugnacious mid/hi bark, cutting through without a hint of harshness to allow your playing to shine. The controls have been designed to be perfectly balanced so you can easily brighten or roll-off to suit your cabinet or venue. The Jet Black’s sound stands apart from the traditional "British Voice" and playing in a two-guitar band it finds its own sonic space.

Meticulously tuned reverb and tremolo circuits perfectly match the Jet Black’s personality. The reverb is lavish with no splashiness or noise, and the tremolo pulses with adjustable depth and speed. The Jet Black offers a buffered and transparent FX Loop, meaning zero drama when connecting effects. A line out means using external IRs or re-amping is a snap, and there’s a full complement of speaker outputs to choose from. Finally, there is an included compact two-button footswitch to switch the tremolo on/off and change amp channels.
