Panama Guitars Unveils the Shaman Series of Amps

The Shaman 20 is designed to deliver the ultimate in flexibility.

Boquete, Panama (January 19, 2015) -- Panama Guitars is proud to announce the launch of its Shaman Series of All-Tube Guitar Amplifiers. Starting at $699.99, the all-tube Shaman Series is designed for maximum tonal flexibility with no sacrifices.

“The Shaman Series combines 60-plus years of tonal history with modern innovations in a perfect blend of yesterday and today,” said Matt Hornby, Marketing Manager for Panama Guitars. “Our goal with the Shaman Series was to provide boutique all-tube tones and supernatural flexibility in a compact package of sustainably harvested woods, all at a great price.”

The Shaman 20 is designed to deliver the ultimate in flexibility: From '50s cleans and hot-rodded British tones, to fire-breathing modern metal, this little beast does it all in a compact cabinet, handcrafted in Panama from sustainably harvested exotic tonewoods. It features two fully-independent footswitchable channels (“Clean” and “Unclean”) each with independent Master, Presence, Bass, Mid, Treble, Gain, and two switchable voicing modes covering a range of tones from classic tweed and blackface cleans to hot-rodded British and ultra-modern high-gain, with a shared, hard-bypassable effects loop and a selectable 10/20 Watt EL84 Power Section.

The Shaman Retro 20 is the same amp as the Shaman 20 but designed to deliver a more specifically vintage experience. The Shaman Retro still has plenty of gain on tap but eschews the more modern tonality in favor of a nuanced vintage flavor, still in a compact cabinet handcrafted in Panama from sustainably harvested exotic tonewoods. It features two fully-independent footswitchable channels each with independent Master, Bass, Treble, Gain, 2 clean and 3 unclean switchable voicing modes covering a range of tones from classic tweed and British cleans to classic 80s brown and 90s metal tones, with a shared bypassable effects loop and a selectable 5/10/20 Watt EL84 Power Section.

The Shaman Series of amplifiers feature our bypassable Harmonic Content Limiter which introduces symmetrical / asymmetrical clipping allowing for a wide range of subtle yet highly effective distortion variations, from Plexi and JCM800 to modern high-gain.

The Shaman Series is now shipping to select Panama Guitars dealers worldwide.
