PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for the 2010 NAMM Show where she visits the Dean Markley booth. In this segment, we get to see and hear a reissue of a 80s Dean Markley amp, the CD60 combo. The CD60 combo was built by Ultrasound Amps and it is an all tube, two-channel combo. At the heart of the CD60, you'll find three 12AX7 preamp tubes and a power section fueled by two 6L6s, driving a special Celestion 12 Speaker. Foot-switchable Reverb and Overdrive, variable Effects, Send and Return, along with PA-In and Pre-Out jacks complete this feature rich CD amplifier.
