Dynamo Amplification Introduces the M50X Amp

A 50 watt single channel high gain amp that has a “balls to the walls” tone only comparable to the super guitar rigs of the late ''80s metal gods.

San Antonio, TX (June 22, 2012) - Dynamo Amplification introduced its newest model, the M50X at the 2012 New York Amp Show. The M50X (nicked named “The Bed Room Warrior”) is a 50 watt single channel  high gain amp that has a “balls to the walls” tone only comparable to the super guitar rigs of the late '80s metal gods. This is accomplished by an ultra high gain preamp that is handwired point-to-point with four 12AX7 preamp tubes feeding a pair of EL34 power tubes. With a modest price tag of $1,799, this amp is hand built in North Texas, USA, and built to 100% mil-spec using only high-end audiophile grade components and premium Mercury Magnetics transformers. Dynamo designed the amp to produce a very polished professional concert tone comparable to the days of running custom modified Marshall's and high dollar rack systems and signal processors to achieve such a big tone. Like its bigger brothers in the Dynamo line, this amp offers an amazing high definition concert tone that’s warm, pure, lush, tight, and focused at all volumes.

The M50X is matched to GT212 cab that can be loaded with a range of speakers from FANE, ASW, Jensen, and Eminence with the designer’s favorites being the ASW KTS-70 for best overall tone, and The Jensen Jet Electric lightning for slightly more edge and attack.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
