PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2009 New York Amp Show where he visits the Simple Amps room. In this video segment, we get to see two of Simple's newest products; the Traveler Series and the Big Iron 6VAV--the 2nd V standing for Vibrato. The Traveler Series consists of economy-minded portable amps that run on the same circuits as their big brothers, the Big Iron 6VA. All the different Traveler models feature a Jensen 10" MOD speaker and Mercury Magnetics transformers. They also come packed with either 6V6, 6L6 or EL34 tubes.
The Big Iron 6VAV amp comes with 6V6 power tubes, either 12AX7 or 12AU7 preamp tubes and runs hot at about 30 watts. The Big Iron 6VAV is built upon the same platform as its sister amp, the Big Iron 6VA, the difference lies in the second "V," which stands for the added built-in Vibrato feature controlled by knobs on the front panel.
