The first four of the series are the Nero Fuzz, Rosso Overdrive, Tono Shaper, and Luna Boost.

Mesa, AZ (November 5, 2014) -- Crimsontone Amps has always been a customer-focused, hand-built amp maker, striving for purity and quality of tone, as well as character and style. That simple approach continues in the newly developed family of compact effects pedals now being offered. We’re proud to introduce the first four models of our new line: Nero, Rosso, Tono and Luna.

Each of these pedals is meticulously hand-wired using the same methods as our amplifiers. All the components are selected for their quality, character and tonality to complement each unique circuit design, and matched for consistency from one build to the next.

A ferocious 15-watt head inspired by Orange, Marshall, and Sovtek amps.

Crimsontone specializes in low-wattage boutique amps—their largest model is the 20-watt Tarocco. Most of their amplifiers are named after oranges, or colors associated with them: Valencia, Scarlet, Auburn, Vermillion. Their latest effort is the Moro, a 15-watt hellion.

Profondo Rosso
The Moro—a compact, class AB head with three 12AX7s and two EL84s—is a cross between two previous Crimsontone models, the Valencia and the Scarlet. According to Crimsontone’s Bryce Bickham, the Valencia started out as a modified Orange Tiny Terror but morphed into a different beast, while the Scarlet began as a Marshall/Sovtek Mig 100H hybrid.

Crimsontone announces two new models in their mini line and a 15-watt, EL-84 powered Moro.

Mesa, AZ (June 17, 2013) -- Continuing the Mini Series of small watt guitar amps, Crimsontone offers the SE Meany and Scarlet Mini. Based on the same circuit design and features as the SE Mini, the SE Meany includes two additional preamp gain stages for more overdrive, and a newly redesigned shiftable Tone knob for increased tone shaping control. The Scarlet Mini takes the massive tone of its big brother - the Scarlet - and packs it into a single channel, featuring the same flexible Mid Sweep control and two switchable EQ Curve settings.

In the mid watt range of heads comes the Moro. Cousin to the Valencia, the Moro begins with the same chimey clean preamp design, then cascades into an additional 12AX7 preamp section for massive amounts of gain. A sleek red and silver motif make this amp stand out among the sea of traditional black tolex clad amps.
