Oxygen Amps Launches Ozone Series

The new Canadian line is available in both head and combo formats.

Vancouver, Canada (December 25, 2013) -- Oxygen Audio is pleased to announce the launch of our versatile 18 Watt product line (head, 1x12 combo, 2x12 combo and ext cabs) known as the Ozone Series. The amps utilize a proprietary ground plane circuit design which results in the "quietest" amp possible completely free of unwanted "noise". Instead of using eyelet or turret boards like most amps, which introduce unwanted impedances into the grounding design, we utilize a copper ground plane to effectively eliminate feedback and ghost notes.

Specs:

  • Proprietary ground plane circuit design delivering the “quietest” amp in the industry completely free of “unwanted noise”
  • 3rd Generation London Power Scaling providing a 40dB dynamic range without losing the saturation, gain and even-order harmonics that characterize the amp at higher outputs
  • 5879 tubes in the Cream Channel – exceptionally rich tone and consistent quality without the annoying microphonics of EF86s
  • 18W output, all tube (5879, 3 x 12AX7, 2 x EL84, 5AR4) , hand-built, point-to-point construction
  • Two channels: Cream and Clean/Boost with footswitchable boost control adding an extra 12AX7
  • Available in head, 1x12 and 2x12 combo and extension cabs featuring Scumback speakers

All Oxygen products are built in the company’s Vancouver, Canada home. Suggested retail price is $2150 (head), $2450 (1x12 combo), $2750 (2x12 combo), $790 (2x12 ext cab) and $1190 (4x12 ext cab).

In addition to this impressive lineup, we also hope to debut our 36 Watt Amplifier offering at the 2014 NAMM Show. Stay tuned for more exciting news and be sure to visit us at booth 1273 at NAMM.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
