Andrews Amplification Expands Spectraverb Series

The award-winning line is now available in several new configurations.

Atlanta, GA (April 17, 2015) -- Due to customer requests, the Spectraverb 22 and Spectraverb 40 amps are now available in head, 2X10 and 2X12 combo versions. Like the 1X12 combos previously introduced, the newest Spectraverb amps offer surprising clarity and headroom while delivering a smooth, touch sensitive response and complex warm harmonics. The new head cabinets are designed in the proper dimensions to accommodate our spring reverb system without the introduction of noise that is often found in shorter cabinets.   

The Spectraverb series amps are available as heads, 1X12, 2X12 and 2X10 combos and feature locally-built heavy-duty solid pine or domestic birch plywood cabinets and are hand-wired on heavy-duty turret boards in the USA. Spectraverb amps are upgraded versions of the famous AB763 vintage “Blackface” models

  • Upgraded high quality USA built transformers
  • Improved circuitry to reduce noise and eliminate flubby bass tones

Jack Broadbent on John Lee Hooker | Hooked

The flask-sliding swashbuckler's turning point with guitar was hearing (and absorbing) the Delta bluesman's thumping, percussive rhythms.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
