Comprising four guitar and four bass combos, the series is specced to provide professional quality tones at affordable prices

Ringoes, NJ (November 30, 2012) – Worldwide independent musical instrument trade distributor John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd. is delighted to announce a brand new range of Kinsman guitar and bass amplifiers.

Comprising four guitar and four bass combos, the series is specced to provide professional quality tones at affordable prices, with a range of volume levels and features to suit players of any type or ability.

The big daddy of the line is the 100-watt, 2x12 Kinsman K100GFX. At £299 UK RRP, the K100GFX is easily loud enough for any gig and comes ready to rock! The K100GFX features two channels that will take you from shimmering clean tones to extra-thick distortion, as well as eight 24-bit digital FX (choose from Reverb, Echo, Chorus, Flanger and more). Like all the Kinsman guitar combos, the K100GFX features a blue jewel power indicator light, chrome effect control knobs, and vintage style cloth grille.

The 50-watt Kinsman K50GFX (£169 UK RRP) features a 10-inch speaker, two channels and 24- bit digital effects. The Lead channel has two High-Gain preamp choices, and both channels share common Bass, Middle and Treble EQ controls. Other features include an external speaker jack, headphone jack, and a CD/Tape input.

The Kinsman K25GFX (£129 UK RRP) offers 25 watts of power and an 8-inch speaker, making it perfect for rehearsals or smaller gigs. Like its bigger brothers, it has two channels, loads of FX and stacks of great other features. Meanwhile, the diminutive 15-watt K15GFX (£69.99 UK RRP) combines 15 watts of power with a two-channel (Clean/Lead) design, a 3-band EQ and Reverb/ Delay FX.

For bassists, the 25-watt Kinsman K25B (£89.99 UK RRP) and the 15-watt K15B (£64.99 UK RRP) feature 8-inch speakers, active EQs and a built-in, circuit-protecting Limiter. The 50-watt K50B (£169 UK RRP), with its 10-inch speaker, and the 100-watt, 12-inch speaker K100B (£279 UK RRP) are equipped with more features – including 8 fantastic 24-bit digital FX – and are loud enough to cover a wide range of playing environments. Built to last with heavy vinyl covering, protective corners and metal speaker grilles, the Kinsman bass amps are pure rhythm machines.
