June 10, 2010
PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location at the 2010 NY Amp Show where he visits the Satellite Amps room. In this segment, we get to see two of their newest amps, the Mudshark (gold sparkle) and the Little Booger.

The Mudshark has a pair of 5881's (cathode biased, push/pull), a pair of 12AX7's, and a 5AR4 rectifier. It pushes about 20 watts and most people say it is very reminiscent of the old Supro's, AKA the "Chicago" or "Zep" sound.

The Little Booger is 12 watt head with a pair of 6AQ5's, a pair of 12AX7's, and an EZ81 rectifier. The Little Booger is a cathode biased, push/pull amp. It has lots of rich harmonics and plenty of gain.

Adam said he's also made Nveus models with EL34s and solid state rectifiers for more gain. Also, the Satellite cabinet used in the demo is a 2x10 loaded with Celestion 10" Greenbacks.
