|Wallace Sophia and Avalon
Brian Wallace introduced two new heads to his impressive line—the Sophia and the Avalon. Sporting three 12AX7s and a quartet of EL84s, the single-channel Sophia (top) pumps out 30 watts and offers a classic set of controls: Volume, Treble, Bass, Mid, and Cut.
The 2-channel, 40-watt Avalon (bottom) has two 12AX7s and a pair of EL34s, and features Volume and Tone knobs for each channel plus a Master volume. The Sophia costs $1200; the Avalon runs $1800.
