DESCRIPTION:

The 59 is an EL-34 powered amp with plenty of muscle and headroom at 45 watts. Trademark vibrato and the new option of tremolo make this one a force to be reckoned with. The bar is now set higher!

The Magnatone Super 59 is the modern incarnation of the classic Magnatone. Cosmetically striking in its black levant with white satin grill cloth, edged by piping and sleek and luxurious, the Super 59 oozes style and fashion. A pair of EL34s and a GZ34 rectifier form the basis of this rock and roll machine. Developed in conjunction with Billy F Gibbons, the Super 59 has been Billy's go-to amplifier for the last year of touring and recording schedules. Two independent channels allow you to choose your voice and mood for the evening.

The “classic” channel is simple in its volume and tone adjustments, yielding a punchy focused midrange that is quite reminiscent of a VOX AC30. The “modern” channel sports gain, master vol, and the classic 3 band EQ to achieve tones from the '70s, '80s and up to date. An effects loop is included on this channel to allow modern or vintage effects to be used. A shared presence control adjusts the sparkle and bandwith of the power amp for both channels.

The classic Magnatone dual stage vibrato is employed in the “classic” channel only, giving the user a deep throbbing pulse to the raw sound. Also switchable to conventional tremolo, the effect then becomes functional on both channels. A remote pedal option allows any expression pedal to control the speed of the effect for some real time creative adjustments.
