We call this amp the "Dirty 30" around Budda headquarters. Think of it as a stack in a small combo box. The 30 packs a punch and its compact, lightweight with killer headroom. The 30 is designed around 4 EL84 power tubes that are dialed in to nail the popular Ameri-Brit style gain. This amp is all about the two channel hot rodded dual class "hot bias" circuit set in a pine box with our custom Phat 12. Imagine an overdrive that is both nasty and smooth depending on how you pick your guitar and a clean tone that is lush and full with harmonic overtones never heard in a tube amp before.

Quality Features Value
This thing has all the tone you could ever want - smooth, warm, dynamic - just great. It is very touch responsive and forces you to play better because it reveals all types of sloppiness.
The clean channel is great for bluesy riffs and the gain channel can do it all: crunch, chunk, classic rock and borderline metal.
This is a very versatile amp and for only 30w it really puts out big. It's an investment, but you won't regret it! (Posted on 7/20/2012)
