San Francisco, CA (January 2, 2020) -- The Amp 100 by Milkman Sound is the new high-power addition to The Amp model line that set the standard for pedalboard-sized tube/Class D hybrid guitar amps in 2018. Maximum wattage has been increased to 100 watts and an integrated FET boost circuit and dual control reverb has been added. A black finish with Walnut end panels and silver knobs completes the new look.
Tim Marcus from Milkman explains “When Milkman first announced The Amp in 2017 I had no idea that it would take off the way it has. I thought rather than modify the existing 50-watt design, we should create a completely new design from the ground up and offer some different features so that players can choose between two different amplifiers”
In the Amp 100, an internal FET boost starts at unity gain and can work as an ‘always on’ EQ sweetener, subtly boosting midrange frequencies, or as a powerful drive pushing the 12AX7 tube into full saturation. The boost sits between the triodes of the preamp tube. Placing the boost internally preserves interaction between the instrument input and the first tube stage, and also increases headroom so that The Amp 100 can still work well with external drive and boost pedals.
The Amp 100 has a dual control reverb system, adding a control for decay time as well as reverb blend. The decay control ranges from a short room like reverb sound to a full tank spring splash with classic drip.
The Amp 100 delivers 100 watts into 8ohms or 200 watts into 4ohms (50 watts into 16 ohms).
