Cedar Rapids, IA (December 21, 2009) -- Xits Amplification has announced two new additions to their line of amps: the X10 and X4.
The younger sibling of the XITS Sadie, the X10 is a single-channel 15-watt combo that offers pure early-‘60s tone that responds to your touch, just like an XITS Amp should. With three 12AX7-driven gain stages and a dual-EL84 power section, user controls are: Volume 1, Treble, Bass, Volume 2 (post-phase-inverter Master), Bright Switch and a three-position (center off) Control Switch. The X10’s tones range from chimey clean to fully saturated drive. The Master Volume allows both preamp and power amp gain and levels to be blended for limitless combination of tone and loudness. Available in 1x12 Combo with Celestion Greenback ($989) or Celestion Alnico Blue ($1189) as well as in head/cabinet configuration.
The X4 is a single-channel 5-watt combo with all the classic VOX ingredients: EF86, ECC83 and EL84 valves, ultra-stylish good looks… and tremolo. The X4 is incredibly light in weight yet ultra heavy when it comes to tone. User controls are: Volume 1, Tone, Volume 2 (Master), Intensity (Tremolo on/of), Speed and three-position (center off) Control Switch. Available in 1x12 Combo with Celestion Greenback ($779) and 1x10 with Celestion Gold (coming soon) or in head/cabinet configuration.
All X10 and X4 cabinets have been designed to provide a big sound in a small package. The back opening has been sized and positioned to allow the perfect blend of sound from both the front and back of the loudspeaker. The cabinet is constructed out of 1/2" Baltic birch plywood with a floating baffle, so the cabinet resonates and comes to life as the amplifier’s volume is increased. Chilewich woven vinyl is “welded” to the cabinet shell to provide unmatched scuff and abrasion resistance.
