Magnatone Announces the 5-Watt Starlite

Magnatone Announces the 5-Watt Starlite

Magnatone unveils the Starlite, its new 5-watt amplifier with a vintage look designed for the office, backstage, or the studio.

Joining the Magnatone Traditional lineup, Starlite features classic American tones with Vintage style, and is designed to rival anything in the small amp category. According to Ted Kornblum, CEO, “Folks have been asking us for a long time to come out with a small, low-power amp for practice and studio applications that maintains the traditional Magnatone style, tone, and performance. With Starlite, we believe we’ve hit the mark of classic American tone with something that takes small to the next level.”

Designed for backstage, studio, bedroom, or office, Starlite style fits the part in Vintage brown with gold cosmetics. This small-footprint amp performs with a sound bigger than its power rating. The single-ended, 5-watt amplifier is powered by one 6V6 and the 12AX7 in the preamp provides a classic American tone.
