Matrix Releases GT800FX Rackmount Amps

Matrix Releases GT800FX Rackmount Amps

Built on a classic class AB output the amp sounds similar to the old V800 as favored by the likes of  Eddie Van Halen, Keith Richards and Robert Plant.

Usk, United Kingdom (November 2, 2011) -- The GT800FX rackmount amps from British amp builders Matrix Guitar Amplificationare now in full production and available worldwide.

The GT800FX is built on a classic class A/B output and is designed to sound similar to the old V800 as favoured by the likes of  Eddie Van Halen, Keith Richards and Robert Plant but only takes up one rack space. Matrix says that Dave Friedman of Rack Systems Ltd and Rob Navarrette of Tone Merchants reports that the GT800FX was a more than suitable replacement for the V800 in a wet-dry-wet rig. The Matrix GT800FX weighs less than 5 kg, and is less than 9" deep.

'We have had great feedback from guitarists using the amps with modelers such as the Fractal or Line 6," said Matt Button, Sales Director, 'They are now finding it easy to tuck the 1u amp in a 3u case with a modeler and take their whole modeling/amplification package to gigs and rehearsals. A couple of customers have reported that they now find it easy to travel through airports with their rig."

The GT800FX are built in house by Managing Director, Mr Andy Hunt, an amplifier designer with more than 20 years experience of audio design within the industry. Andy even builds the transformers in house to ensure they remain of the highest quality.

With Neutrik 1/4" jack and XLR inputs coupled to Neutrik 1/4" jack and Speakon outputs the amp is designed to be a very flexible solution.
