PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location at the 2010 NY Amp Show where he visits the Anacon Technology room. In this segment, Anacon Tech's Aleksander Niemand shows us his latest prototype--the Zagray.

The Zagray is a single-channel amp loaded with one 12AY7 and two 12AX7 preamp tubes. The power section has an ECC82 and two 7591 tubes. Both the power and output transformers are custom-wound toroids. The front panel controls are Bottom, Bass Treble, Gain, Dip - Hump, Drive, Crystal, and Volume. Some noteworthy features include the SC/90/HB switch that is used to engage with a particular guitar/pickup configuration to give the tone a distinct voicing. Also, the Dip/Hump control has four positions set at half-octave frequencies.
