Three Iconic Amplifiers
All the subtleties and unique tonal qualities of each amplifier has been captured. Every aspect of their circuitry has been modeled with absolute precision to deliver the response, feel, and inspiring experience of playing through the original amps at their best.
• Round Amp based on a Fender® Deluxe Reverb®
The Deluxe is one of the most recorded amps in history for good reason. This amp is clean, bright, and mid-scooped, with plenty of headroom. At higher Drive settings it delivers an overdriven sound unique to its architecture. The Deluxe's Normal channel was chosen for its round tone that plays well with pedals. While preserving access to all the tones originally available with this channel, this model gives you something extra: a midrange control. With the midrange at noon, you get the original fixed-resistor value and standard tonal characteristics of the Deluxe. Turn down the midrange for a more scooped sound, or turn it up for tweed-era tones.
• Chime Amp based on the Brilliant channel of a Vox® AC30
The amp that defined the guitar sound of the British Invasion. Our model of the AC30TB Brilliant channel is jangly, bright, and chimey, providing air for subtle passages with a light touch, and bite when you want to dig in. For this amp, the Middle knob acts a Tone Cut knob, providing high-end roll-off just before the power tubes, per the original AC30 design. In addition to the full available gain of the original amp, toward the top end of the Drive knob's range of travel, Strymon has added a frequency-shaped front end boost to tighten the low end while driving the amp further into saturation.
• Punch Amp based on a Marshall® Plexi (Super Lead model number 1959)
This powerful amp is meatier, with higher gain than the other two amps, and has a powerful midrange response. This amp features a buttery, smooth overdrive. At higher Drive settings it will deliver all the high gain distortion and growl this amp is known for, and then some. Setting the Drive control at around 2 o'clock gets you the maximum gain the original Plexi design allowed. Beyond that, this model has some additional gain on tap, giving you access to custom hot-rodded Plexi high gain tones.
