A class AB design that features spring reverb, a Jensen Tornado 100 speaker, and a sturdy pine cabinet.

London, UK (November 18, 2019) -- New boutique amp company Rajani Amplifiers has unveiled the VOD-50 (Valve Overdrive 50 Watts), a high quality, multi-channel guitar amp with spring reverb capable of producing the full spectrum of overdrive tones from clean to classic rock. Available as a head or 1x12 combo and enclosed in a sturdy but lightweight pine cabinet, this amp is perfect for gigging musicians who want an authentic valve sound at stage volume without the weight. And it is equally attractive to studio musicians who want the sound of a cranked valve amp at low volume.

Features:

  • All-valve preamp producing triode and pentode harmonics for power tube distortion at low volume.
  • Transparent discrete Class AB solid state power amp with optical compression and custom “clean clipping” technology for a loud 50 Watts — more than enough for any gig.
  • Combo loaded with 12″ neo Jensen Tornado 100 speaker. Total weight only 13.5 kg.
  • Clean and Lead channels with a 6 dB boost on each. Switchable with the included heavy-duty two-button foot switch.
  • Long tank analogue spring reverb voiced to sound great at all gain settings.
  • Serial effects loop with line/instrument level switch.
  • Variable mains voltage selector switch for multi-country operation.
  • Versatile active 2-band Baxandall EQ.

All Rajani Amps are designed, built, and rigorously tested in the company’s London workshop. Combo price: £1,795 (approx USD 2,300). Head price: £1,695 (approx USD 2,180). Exclusively sold direct from rajaniamps.com. 7 day lead time. International shipping available.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
