Port City Amps Announces the Soulstice Combo

Port City Amps Announces the Soulstice Combo

The 50-watt combo offers tube-driven spring reverb and pitch-oscillating vibrato.

Asheville, NC (January 26, 2019) -- Building on the success of the Soulstice head, designed alongside renowned artist David Ryan Harris, Port City Amps are excited to announce the newest addition to our product line, the 2x10 Soulstice combo.

The new Soulstice combo amp takes the same sonically rich elements of the Soulstice head and packs them into a comfortable and extremely durable, handcrafted 2x10 combo enclosure. This amp was designed to be versatile and accepting to players of many styles. It can act beautifully alone because of it’s harmonically rich and balanced tone capable of achieving a saturated tube tone when driven, or it can provide an extremely solid platform for the pedal lovers. Like our other products, you can expect to find a distinctive clarity and presence, however what really sets this amplifier apart from others on the market is it’s unique tube-driven reverb and vibrato circuits.

The reverb section of this amplifier is very lush and clear at all levels, yet you can find extremely washed out, ambient style tones if driven all the way. The pitch oscillating vibrato section of this amplifier is extremely musical in all settings by going above and beyond the typical vibrato circuit that most amplifier companies offer. Apart from it’s unique reverb and vibrato circuits, this amp also features interactive treble, bass, and middle controls, combined with a bright switch, which allows for extremely versatile and responsive tone shaping.
