Tim Marcus originally designed this amplifier to use with pedal steel guitar. He needed an amplifier to capture the full bandwith of the steel guitar. As it so happens, the amplifier became very popular with 6 string guitar players as well. It turns out a great steel guitar amplifier makes an incredible guitar amplifier!
The 85W is conservatively named. With a strong quad of 6L6 output tubes this amp can easily knock out 115W. Your brain will go into distortion before the amplifier does. On top of the giant clean power supply and honey sweet EQ section there is a 3 knob tube reverb system. The added reverb controls allow for an enormous range of reverb sounds, and since the output of the amp is very clear and detailed, you can get into tone territory that is like an extension of your thoughts.
The 85W Pedal Steel Amplifier is hand wired onto a turret board with Mercury Magnetics transformers and Jupiter capacitors. The amp is available as a head, combo, or piggyback stack.
