Andrews Amplification Introduces Sepectraverb Models

Andrews Amplification expands their line with the addition of the Spectraverb 40 and Spectraverb 20 combos.

Atlanta, GA (September 9, 2013) -- Joining the company’s existing line of hand crafted amps, Andrews Amplification introduces the Spectraverb 40 and the Spectraverb 20. In keeping with the Andrews tradition, the new amps offer surprising clarity and headroom while delivering a smooth, touch sensitive response and complex warm harmonics.

Both amps are available as 1X12 combos (2X12 and 2X10 combos coming soon) and feature locally built heavy-duty Baltic birch or solid pine cabinets and are hand-wired on heavy-duty turret boards in the USA. Spectraverb amps are upgraded versions of the famous AB763 “Blackface” features include:

  • Upgraded high quality USA built transformers
  • Improved circuitry to reduce noise and flubby low end
  • Lush tube-driven tube reverb with innovative limiter control
  • 40 watts output power for Spectraverb 40 and 20 watts for the Spectraverb 20
  • Good clean headroom provides an excellent platform for pedals.
  • External bias test points and adjustments for easy tube changes
  • Two 12AX7, two 12AT7 one GZ34 and two 6V6 (Spectraverb 20) or two 6L6GC (Spectraverb 40) tubes
  • Optional series effects loop with true bypass
  • Optional half-power switch for reducing volume when “cranked up”
  • Five year limited warranty

The Spectraverb 40 1X12 combo carries a retail price of $1895. The Spectraverb 20 1X12 combo carries a retail price of $1795.

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.
