Foxgear Unveils the Tweed 55 and Plexi 55

A pair of new stomps that aim to cop the tones of bona fide classics.

Sun Valley, CA (October 12, 2020) -- We started with the groundbreaking, best selling Kolt 45 Miniamp and with that success it just made sense to extend Foxgear's line of miniamps with an insanely compact series of Complete Guitar Amplifiers featuring a multi-stage Class A FET preamp and Foxgear's proprietary Class D power section, capable of real 55 Watts rms @4 Ohm.

Foxgear's FETs preamp section truly mimics the behavior and harmonic content of tube preamps like the American clean classic amps of the Fender Blackface Era and the Classic British tones reminiscent of Marshall Plexis.

The Tweed 55 offers an abundance of crystal clean tones with plenty of headroom, the Plexi 55 is designed to get that Edge and Crunch tone you expect when an amp is pushed to its limit, place your favorite OD/Distortion in front of it and the tone is unbelievable.

Lightning fast response and harmonically rich, you will forget you’re not playing thru a Tube amplifier. The Tweed 55 or the Plexi 55 are also perfect as a backup amp, Soon you’ll bring your Tweed 55 or Plexi 55 for all your gigs and rehearsals. Your ears and your back will thank you!
