Tel Aviv, Israel (February 20, 2018) -- B&G Guitars, known for their hand built Little Sister guitar, introduces The Prototype handwired tube amplifier.
“Inspired by the sound and design concepts of classic tube amps of the 1950s & '60s, our hearts and minds were set to combine the best features of those classics with our own ideas and innovation” says Yotam (Kiki) Goldshtein, B&G’s master luthier. Kiki adds “ Our main goal was to provide a great amount of clean headroom and to push the breaking point higher, without compromising the power and growl of the tube overdrive and fuzz. In order to provide that warm vintage sound, we went on a quest to source limited amounts of new old stock audio capacitors and find the perfect match between all components. We’re proud to announce this NOS capacitors edition is limited to 100 pieces worldwide.
