Gosh Introduces the Problem Solver

Gosh Problem Solver amp

Expanding its line of boutique guitar products, Gosh Amplification has introduced the Problem Solver 50-Watt all-tube amp head.


The single-channel Problem Solver amp excels at capturing the iconic sounds of the British 2204 circuit but adds a new level of versatility and tone-shaping capability. The Problem Solver offers a unique 4-position rotary AGE switch located on the amp’s back panel that allows you to adjust your tone stack and select the sonic profile of different eras: ’63, ’66, ’81, and ‘23. The back panel also includes a special Mid Boost toggle switch for adding highs and mid-range punch.

The amp’s front panel offers familiar options – Presence, Bass, Middle, Treble, Master, and Gain controls – along with the Problem Solver’s special Depth control, which allows you to precisely shape your low-end articulation and tightness.

Featuring a time-tested tube configuration -- 2 x EL34 power tubes and 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes– the Problem Solver is designed to deliver huge flexibility in a professional-grade, user-friendly package. Beyond paying tribute to rock ‘n’ roll classics, the Problem Solver intends to thoroughly celebrate timeless tone, and it's hand-wired to meet the needs of today's musicians who wish to explore a new era of sonic possibilities.

  • 50-watt all-tube head, hand-wired in the USA

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
