The Abaddon amp is a single channel, four gain stage preamp master volume amplifier that has the ability to go from massive distortion to beautiful cleans with the twist of your guitars volume.
The front panel setup is Drive, Gain, Master Volume and the standard tone layout, Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence.
The Drive control is just that, it allows you to adjust how hard the initial signal hits the front end of the amp. The Gain control allows you to set the amount of gain after the Drive circuit. This allows an incredible amount of control over the overall gain structure of this amp. Also, setting either control at ten and the other on three, and vise versa, will give different tonal textures to the overdriven sound. This flexibility of the preamp allows a variety of sounds from beautiful cleans to plexi tone to over the top distortion. The Master volume controls the overall volume of the amp, of course the louder this is set, the better things get. This is the amp that is currently being played by Greg Gdaniec of Deep Cut.
Chris Webster of Kilacel fame is the most recent endorser of the Abaddon amp.
Chris was kind enough to send me a demo cut of Launch the Dog. This features
the Abaddon being driven by a distortion pedal for even more over the top tones.
