Everything from retro-style axes to interstellar effects and insanely powerful amps caught our eye in Nashville.

One of the most impressive amps at NAMM was 3rd Power Amps' Dual Citizen. Like the name implies it can go from a beautifully chimey British sound to a robust and spanky blackface tone. The channels can either be blended together or switched via an included foot switch. It's loaded with Mullard EL34s and weighs in at a solid 45 watts. Finally it has a mixed bus, pedal-level loop driver so you can put all your pedals after the preamp. It's available now and streets for $2750. Combo version coming soon.
