The British blues player’s simple-but-brawny tool kit for tough tones.
Her big-dog amp is a Bletchley Belchfire 45, which strives to wed the tones of a Marshall plexi to both the roar of Valco and the chime of Vox amps. Handwired with a super-clean interior, flexible, and formidable, it’s got the right tone for Taylor’s aggressive approach. The Belchfire’s 45 watts are fired by three 12AX7s, two EL34 power tubes, and a 5U4GB rectifier. This one was built for Jake Kiszka of Greta Van Fleet, but he didn’t need it, so, after using it in the studio, Taylor purchased the head. It perches atop a vintage Marshall 4x12.
