LA Amp Show: Nolatone CL-15, CL-30, 22 Tango Demos
October 13, 2009
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Van Nuys, CA, for the 2009 LA Amp Show where he swings by the Nolatone Ampworks booth. In this video segment, we get to see and hear from Nolatone's CL-15, 22 Tango and CL-30 combo amps (all available in heads).
The CL-15 is a 22 watt amp with 2-6V6 tubes, GZ34 rectifier tube and 3-12AX7 preamp tubes. The combo comes loaded with a Celestion Vintage 30.
The CL-15 and CL-30 are the same amp except the CL-30 uses a Celestion Alnico Gold, while the CL-15 uses a Celestion Alnico Blue. They come with the option of switching input tubes between EF86 or 12AX7. They come with 2-EL84 power tubes (CL-30 has four) and EZ81(CL-15), GZ34(CL-30) rectifier tubes. Both designs are based on '60s Voxs, but with more girth and possible crunch appeal with a Mercury Magnetics transformer.
