65Amps Introduces Red Line with London Pro

The London Pro offers two distinct channels, the EF86 Colour channel and the 12AX7 channel that can be combined for a third, high-gain option.

North Hollywood, CA (October 4, 2010) – 65amps introduced its new Red Line of amplifiers with the first model in the series, the London Pro.

Like its brother, the original 65amps London, the low-powered but extremely toneful London Pro tube amp is hand made in the USA, and takes advantage of 65amps’ renowned expertise in small amps with big feel and tone. With the Red Line, 65amps now offers its high quality construction and tone to working guitar players at a more accessible price than the current 65amps Blue Line models.

Powered by dual EL84s, the 18-watt, tube-rectified London Pro offers two distinct channels, the EF86 Colour channel and the 12AX7 channel. New on the London Pro, these two channels can be combined for a third, high-gain option. When the channels are combined, the volume and tone knobs on each distinct channel now control the gain and tone for just the tubes on the channel they are assigned, allowing extreme tonal versatility. All channels can be controlled by the included footswitch.

65amps also has included its unique Master Voltage feature, which reduces the voltage and output of the amp in a unique way that enables the amp to be played at extremely low volumes without losing its rich tone and feel. The London Pro is housed in a streamlined head and cabinet design constructed from void free Baltic birch, is equipped with handmade American transformers, and sports a new red badge logo. Available as a head, 2x12 combo or 1x12 combo, the London Pro features Celestion G12H30 speakers.

Lucky guests at an October 1st VIP launch event were also treated to a sneak peak of a new offering in 65amps premier Blue Line. This amp, yet to be named, is a concept that combines three distinct but classic British amp voices in one amplifier. The design is a concept that 65amps co-owners Peter Stroud and Dan Boul have been working on for four years and will be presented in its final form this January at NAMM 2011.

Preliminary list prices for the London Pro are as follows:
London Pro head $1850
London Pro 1x12 combo $2295
London Pro 2x12 combo $2395
Red Line 1x12 cabinet $525
Red Line 2x12 cabinet $595

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
