The handwired Budda Twinmaster is a reissue of the groundbreaking amplifier that debuted in 1995.

Meridian, MS (May 9, 2011) -- Budda Amplification announces the return of the Budda Twinmaster, the legendary amplifier that sparked the low-wattage revolution in guitar amplification. The handwired Budda Twinmaster is a reissue of the groundbreaking amplifier that debuted in 1995.



The Budda Twinmaster is a dynamic boutique amplifier with a straightforward feature set in an 18-watt combo format. Completely handwired in the USA with high-grade audio components, the Twinmaster features a hybrid layout that combines a turret board handwired 12AX7 preamp and a point-to-point handwired EL84 power amp with a 5U4 rectifier.

The Twinmaster has a simple, plug & play feature set, with a single Volume control, highly responsive Treble and Bass controls, and two separate inputs—Normal and Hi Gain—that feed separate tube stages for a multitude of gain characteristics. The Normal input offers a lively palette of sweet, smooth tone that cleans up well, while the Hi Gain input delivers a surprising amount of gain and overdrive that can be dialed back by trimming down the guitar's volume control.

Amenities like a Slave Output and Effects Loop add modern convenience to the Twinmaster's classic vibe. The Slave Output is connected in parallel to the speakers and sends a padded, non-powered signal that can be used as a direct output for live or studio recording. A separate, powered Speaker Output can be connected to a specially tuned Budda extension cabinet, or another loudspeaker enclosure with the proper impedance rating.

The Twinmaster chassis is loaded into a solid, finger jointed pine enclosure, equipped with a single 12" Budda Phat™ loudspeaker, and finished with a striking black Budda covering, matching metal corner caps and classic white piping.

The Budda Twinmaster is available now from authorized Budda Amplification retailers.
