Vintage tone and modern flexibility in a dynamic tube amp head.

The Suhr Hombre tube head amplifier brings coveted vintage Brownface tones into the modern era. Designed by acclaimed amp builder John Suhr, this 18W tube amp head offers a dynamic playing experience with a focus on tone purity. The Hombre aims to capture the gorgeous clean and sweet overdrive tones of classic 1970s Texas blues-rock amps, while providing refinements that make it stage- and studio-ready.

Sculpt Your Sound With the Dynamic Tube Bias Tremolo

The Hombre's tube bias tremolo circuit imparts an unmistakably rich, dimensional sound. As you play harder, the tremolo is less noticeable, then emerges as the notes decay. This interaction between playing dynamics and effect intensity brings the tremolo to life. Dial in anything from a subtle shimmer to a deep, pulsating throb.

A Transparent Signal Path That's Touch Sensitive

The Hombre features a simple, uncluttered signal path for purity of tone and excellent dynamic range. The Normal and Bright channels each have straightforward Volume and Tone controls. Just small adjustments result in a wide range of tones, from sparkling clean to sweet, singing overdrive. The amp responds beautifully to your playing dynamics and guitar's volume knob.

Crank Up the Overdrive With 18W of 6V6 Power

While the Hombre produces those gorgeous, clean bell-like tones, make no mistake - this amp loves to get dirty. It begs to be pushed into sweet, dynamic overdrive reminiscent of '70s Texas blues-rock. The ~18W power section is driven by a pair of 6V6 tubes for that era-perfect breakup when you dig in. This all-tube design interacts with your playing for a fluid response.

Complete the Vintage Vibe With a Pine Cabinet

The Hombre tube head amplifier is perfectly matched with a vintage-styled pine cabinet covered in tweed and loaded with a 12" Celestion V-Type speaker. This completes the vintage vibe while providing crisp, balanced tone. Whether you need pristine cleans or smooth overdrive, the Hombre delivers the dynamic response and rich harmonics that create stunning electric guitar tones.

Vintage Appeal Meets Modern Reliability

While being inspired by legendary vintage amps, the Hombre provides modern refinements for reliability and flexibility. It's available in 100V, 120V, 230V and 240V configurations and features an effects loop and footswitch input. The Hombre brings coveted brownface tones into the modern era.
