Dynamo Amplification Introduces Grand Tour Series Amps

The Dynamo GTS and GT-6 offer a 200-watt, all-tube design with ultra high-end components and construction to take guitar tone to another level.

Fort Worth, TX (November 3, 2011) -- Dynamo Amplification introduces the Grand Tour Series line of high power custom guitar amplifiers and cabinets designed for professional touring and live performance. The Dynamo GTS and GT-6 offer a 200-watt, all-tube design with ultra high-end components and construction to take guitar tone to another level.

The hand-built custom amps feature a pure 2-channel super overdrive design powered by a Plitron Toroidal Transformer, high-end audiophile grade components, Pure Silver audio wiring, and a lifetime Warranty. Dynamo says they designed these amps from a sound engineering point of view to offer a high definition concert tone that’s pure, clean, tight, and focused at all volumes with double the average power output to drive high power cabinets loaded with FANE and EVM 12L guitar speakers well-known for their power and clear projection on stage.

The GTS head is powered by four KT90 tubes, which Dynamo says give it stunning high definition lead overdrive and clean tones unheard outside a recording studio, while the GT-6 is powered by six KT77 or EL34 tubes for a sweet British vintage tone. Retail price on both amps is $3999.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
