Jackson Ampworks Introduces 4 New Amplifiers at NAMM 2012

Keller, TX (Jan 18, 2012) – Jackson Ampworks announces the release of the Atlantic 4.0. The Atlantic 4.0, like the rest of the amps listed, is an all tube hand wired guitar amplifier that offers an incredible level of power and flexibility in a package that is just 14” wide.

Designed as a tribute to Ken Fischer from Trainwreck Circuits, The Atlantic 4.0 is a high gain, non-master volume amplifier that allows the player to take the sound from pristine clean to over-the-top overdrive with a twist of the guitar’s volume knob.

To make the Atlantic 4.0 even more versatile, it offers switch-able 15W Class A, 30W Class A, 25W Class A and 50W Class A/B operation which allows the guitarist to adjust the power and feel of the amplifier to suit any musical setting.

Features:
• 12AX7 Preamp with Independent Volume, Edge, Treble, Middle, Bass, and Presence controls
• Independent Normal/Bright, Single Coil/Humbucker, Thin/Thick, Low Gain/High Gain, Presence On/Off switches
• Switchable 15W Class A and 30W Class A operation using EL84 Output Tubes, and 25W Class A and 50W Class A/B operation using EL34 Output Tubes
• Series FX loop
• Handwired Turret Board Construction
• Footswitchable Boost Feature for added gain

The Atlantic 4.0 is available for $2,750.00


Jackson Ampworks is also announcing the release of their first bass amp, The Behemoth.

With its two channels, the Behemoth delivers all of the classic B-15N and SVT amplifier tones in a small, powerful and portable package. It is the only bass amp anywhere that offers switchable power output of either 30W Class A/B, 60W Class A/B or 120W Class A/B using 6L6 output tubes. This adjustable power feature allows the player to tailor the amps response to any given musical setting.

Channel 1 of the Behemoth is the Vintage Channel and is based on the 8-pin 6SL7 preamp tube. This preamp tube, known for it’s warmth and wide frequency response is where Channel 1 gets its Vintage 1960’s Motown and West Coast tones.

Channel 2 of the Behemoth is the more Modern Channel and is based on the 9-pin 12AX7 preamp tube. This channel, which is modeled after a simplified version of the SVT, is higher gain and punchier than Channel 1, and is better suited for Rock tones and musical styles that demand crisp tight bass tones. In addition to this, Channels 1 and 2 can be blended together to create a combination of new tones.

Features:
• 30/60/120W Power Modes • Gain, Volume, Treble and Bass Controls (Each Channel)
• Ultra-Hi, Mid-Boost and Ultra-Lo Switches (Each channel)
• 2 Blendable Channels • Impedance Selector 4/8ohm • FX Loop
• Line Out with Line Out Level • Master Volume • Switchable 120V and 240V Operation

The Behemoth Bass Amp is available for $2,850.00.
