Analog Outfitters Introduces the Road Amp

The Road Amp is a 20-watt head that uses a pair of 6V6 tubes.

Champaign, IL (March 6, 2014) -- Fresh from The NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, vintage audio specialists and instrument manufacturers Analog Outfitters have announced the unveiling of The Road Amp. This new guitar amplifier is the most recent addition to Analog Outfitters’ collection of eco-friendly products. The Road Amp uses a heavily modified amplifier salvaged from an unwanted Hammond organ and the enclosure is fashioned from a decommissioned road sign.

Following the release of their Super SARGE amplifier last year, originally developed for Nels Cline of Wilco, the 20 watt Road Amp is the tube driven equivalent of a monster truck. This robust amp features:

  • Volume, treble, and bass controls.
  • 20 watt output into 8 ohms.
  • Vacuum tube power – dual 6V6 power tubes, 12AX7 and 12AU7 preamp tubes, and a 5U4GB rectifier tube.
  • 100% hand wired, point-to-point design – no flimsy printed circuit boards.
  • A recycled road sign enclosure – heavy duty durability.
  • Vintage Hammond organ components for superior tone.

All of Analog Outfitters’ boutique products are hand-wired in Champaign, IL using salvaged materials from unused or unwanted equipment. The Road Amp is the newest addition to their lineup of “upcycled” products which have been met with recognition from industry professionals such as John Scofield and Nels Cline. This new amp, along with the rest of their line, will be available through Analog Outfitters’ domestic and international dealer networks with a MAP price of $1199.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
