Chicago, IL (March 20, 2011) -- Continuing the high-end boutique amp trend, along with the V18 and V33 lines, Gabriel Sound Garage announces another all-tube low-wattage amp model, the Gabriel Stinger 7-watt.
As a single-ended switchable EL84/6V6 class-A amp, the Stinger 7 is designed to produce two overdrive accents (Yank or Brit, or both), flavored with the characters of each power tube.
The Stinger was designed to reproduce the tone that shaped Rock 'n' Roll without much impediment from extra gain or tone stack stages. With that in mind, it features only a single channel with a Volume ("Rock") control, a Tone ("Thump") control, the power tube Mode Selector, and a Master Volume ("Accent").
As an added bonus, the amp also includes a Power Amount control (variable voltage regulator) that regulates the overall voltage feeding the amp. The Power Amount allows you to drive the amp at high volumes but regulates the wattage output which makes it a great tool for quiet practicing.
With its 7-watt output, the Stinger is designed to be easily used in recordings, smaller size venues, or mic'd. As an added feature, the Stinger features a green beam "Magic Eye" tube, which acts as a VU-meter for your signal dynamics.
The Stinger comes in a head and 1x10" combo package (loaded with a Weber Silver Ten AlNiCo speaker).
