Demeter Announces the Mighty Minnie Pedalboard Amp

Originally designed for Sonny Landreth, the Mighty Minnie is a hybrid single-channel amp with a handwired preamp.

Templeton, CA (September 25, 2013) -- This amplifier was originally designed for Sonny Landreth, who needed an amplifier small enough to fit on a pedal board. He was tired of being stuck with bad rental amps on the road. (He can’t always take his TGA-3 on the plane.) The TGA-1 is an innovative, hybrid single channel guitar amp with the all tube hand wired TGA-3 clean channel pre-amp. This exclusive Tube Driver stage, with a special Jensen audio transformer controls an audiophile Class D power amplifier, retaining the real tube sound. This little amp has an amazing amount of power; 180 Watts into 4 ohms (modern 4x12 cab), 100 Watts into 8 ohms (single or 2 x 12 cab), or 60 watts into 16 ohms (vintage Marshall 4 x 12.) You get a full compliment of controls: Gain, Bass, Midrange, Treble, Master and a standby foot switch with status light. It’s the first hybrid that really sounds like a tube amp. Besides our legendary clean sound, the TGA-1 also gets great Edge/OD/Distortion tone when you turn up the gain. The Master control has a pull pot with a 20db pad, so you can get the Gain up and still have range on the Master. For your convenience there’s a regulated 9 volt DC output jack to power your pedals. The TGA-1-180D combined with your pedals gets you almost any sound imaginable and you won’t have lug around a heavy amp head any more. Proudly hand built in our barn in Templeton, CA.

10” x 7” x 4.25” and weighs 4.5 lbs. List price is $1199.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
