Da Capo Amplifiers Introduces the GT Deluxe

da capo gt deluxe

Built with KT77s, this living-room-worthy, stage-ready combo rocks out in 40W/20W modes and comes stock with a 12" Celestion alnico Cream speaker.

Based in the Flemish region of Belgium, Da Capo manufactures totally hand-built, valve-driven guitar combination amplifiers of the highest quality.


With switchable 20watt Studio and 40watt Stage outputs, the Da Capo GT Deluxe Series 1x12 class a/b amplifier, features circuitry designed in-house by respected engineer Guy Tiels, delivering sweet, hot-valve musical cleans, with an abundance of harmonic induced sustain when pushed to its natural overdriven voice.

"The Da Capo GT Deluxe Series brings a fresh new approach to tube amp design," says Da Capo owner and founder Nicolas Acou. "There's a noticeable increase in clarity and separation within chords and lead lines, what you hear from the speaker is an open and direct, unimpaired translation of the guitar, with exceptional focus and definition.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
