PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the Rude Mood room. In this segment, we get to see and hear the Rude Mood combo amplifier. The Rude Mood is a product of nearly 2 years of research, design, and development culminating in a guitar amplifier unlike ANY other on the market today. The Rude Mood was created for the working musician who demands the highest quality performance out of their equipment. Whether you are searching for the perfect classic rock crunch, high-energy modern grind, round full jazz or blues, this amplifier does it all. The magic happens when you blend YOUR signature sound so that the audience can hear you - not just an effects pedal. The Rude channel is based on a Marshall Plexi with an all-tube, Class A construction with a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes and an EL34 power tube powering up to 19 watts. The Mood channel is based on a classic Fender voicing with an all-tube, true Class A construction with one 12AX7 preamp tube, a 6L6 power tube, and cranks out 20 watts of power. The cabinet uses two Weber 10" speakers. The Rude side comes through a Weber vintage ceramic speaker and the Mood comes through a vintage alnico speaker.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home.
