Hotone Audio Introduces Nano Legacy Micro Amp Series

The 5-watt Nano Legacy amp heads come in two ultra-compact models: British Invasion and Purple Wind.

Japan (February 19, 2014) -- Introducing Hotone’s Nano Legacy Series Guitar Amplifier Heads, the ultimate companions for guitar players that want serious tone wherever they go. The 5-watt Nano Legacy amp heads produce premium guitar tones in two ultra-compact models: British Invasion (inspired by the legendary Vox AC30) and Purple Wind (inspired by the legendary Marshall Plexi SuperLead 1959). Packed with essential guitar amp features and weighing exactly a pound, the Nano Legacy amp heads are the perfect addition to any guitar player’s arsenal.

The sleek Nano Legacy amp heads each feature a front panel consisting of a guitar input, as well as separate Volume and Gain knobs to dial in your levels. Additional tone shaping is provided by a dedicated 3-band (Bass, Middle, Treble) EQ. There is also a bright LED to indicate that your amp head is powered up and ready to go.

Engineered to be user-friendly and flexible for any setup, the Nano Legacy amp heads can connect to 4, 8 or 16-ohm cabinets using the single speaker output on the back of each unit. Each amp head also features an FX loop (send and return) for integrating external effects, a 1/8-inch Aux input for playing along with MP3 players or smartphones and 1/8-inch headphone/line output for playing through home stereo or computer speakers.
