Burriss Amps Introduces the Dirty Red v2 Amplifier

Burriss Amps Introduces the Dirty Red v2 Amplifier

Lexington, KY (January 14, 2012) – Burriss Amps is pleased to introduce the newest member of the company’s line of full-featured, custom, hand-wired tube amplifiers: the Dirty Red v2.

Lexington, KY (January 14, 2012) – Burriss Amps is pleased to introduce the newest member of the company’s line of full-featured, custom, hand-wired tube amplifiers: the Dirty Red v2.

The original Dirty Red, known for its intensity, tone and gain, was introduced in 2009 and quickly joined the Royal Bluesman from Burriss Amps as one of the company’s most well received heads.

Through some clever engineering, the new Dirty Red v2 maintains all the qualities of the original with added ability to convert the primary channel to play a warm, clean tone while the included Burriss Power Loop Pedal drives your pedals at instrument level; or, to switch between the original crunch and the new warm tone via the included Power Loop. You’ve never heard dirty sound so clean.

With a footprint of only 11.5” x 6.75” x 7.13” and weighing in at 12.7 lbs., the Class A DRv2 is a medium to high gain rock and roll machine with added twist of a channel switcher. With full EQ, the Power Loop, extremely flexible master volume, multi-tap outputs at 4, 8 & 16 ohms and a universal power supply, Dirty Red v2 has it all in a small, US built, hand-made package at an exceptional value.

The Power Loop foot-pedal that comes with the DR v2 provides control over the effects and provides front of stage power to drive multiple pedals at once.

The accomplished guitarist and teacher’s new record, like her lifestyle, is taut and exciting—no more, and certainly no less, than is needed.

Molly Miller, a self-described “high-energy person,” is fully charged by the crack of dawn. When Ischeduled our interview, she opted for the very first slot available—8:30 a.m.—just before her 10 a.m. tennis match!

Donner andThird Man Hardware’s $99, three-in-one analog distortion, phaser, and delay honors Jack White’s budget gear roots.

Compact. Light. Fun. Dirt cheap. Many cool sounds that make this pedal a viable option for traveling pros.

Phaser level control not much use below 1 o’clock. Repeats are bright for an analog delay. Greater range of low-gain sounds would be nice.

$99

A huge part of the early White Stripes mystique, sound, ethos, and identity was tied to guitars and amps that, at the time, you could luck into for cheap at a garage sale. These days, it’s harder to score a Crestwood Astral II, or Silvertone Twin Twelve with a part-time job in the ice cream shop. Back in the late ’90s, though, they were a source of raw, nasty sounds for less than a new, more generic guitar or amp.
