SCAR Amplification Announces Series One Amp

SCAR Amplification has announced the release of their “Series One” 25-watt all-tube guitar amplifier.

Orange County, CA (February 11, 2013) -- SCAR Amplification has entered the Music Industry with their release of their “Series One” 25 watt all tube guitar amplifier Hand Made in USA. SCAR Amplifications engineering staff has over 100 years combined experience in the design of electronics. Our Series One is a unique design that is built and designed for ease of access and repair and it also serves as a modifiable platform in which the components can be changed to alter the output to the player’s desired tone.

This combo has a Plexiglas back cover to ease access and allows a visual window to see the build. The amplifier cabinet is built using sold pine that reduces the weight and transfers the tone rather than absorbed like in compressed wood as used in many amplifiers built today. There is a simple EQ that can be adjusted for unlimited tonal variations. There are two inputs one is a High Gain that allows the amplifier to run hot and give the tube saturation many players desire and one input Normal is padded down to allow for lower gain and can be used with an acoustic electric guitar. This is built for the discriminating guitar player who wants a lightweight simple design that will last for generations. Our build method allows us to present a Boutique style amplifier that is built on a production basis which allows us to sell at a much lower price.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
