Both units are 2-channel, 60W amps that are revoiced and resized in pedalboard-friendly units.

Poland (November 17, 2017) -- After very good reception of Stomp-Head 5 CE by guitarists , Taurus is bringing to the market next model - Stomp-Head 3 (3 footswitches on board). The Stomp-Head 3 will be available in two versions: CLASSIC and HIGH GAIN. The amp is smaller in dimensions than previous models and requires much less space to install on pedalboard.

This is 2 channels amplifier with 60 Watt power and as all amps from Stomp-Head's family is based on the MTD (Master Tube Design) technology.

The Stomp-Head's 3 power and loudness in use are exactly the same as other traditional tube amplifiers with the same power rating.

What are the benefits having this amplifier in your pedalboard?

  • Eliminates the need of large amounts of long and heavy cable runs to connect effect loops or amplifier switchers. Our entire amplifier weighs less and takes much less space then a bundle of wires required to serve the traditional amplifier set on speaker cabinet or rack mounted. As a result, when you eliminate all external wiring of the amp controller and FX Loop, your whole guitar sound system is extremely compact and much lighter.
  • There is no need for additional foot-switches to control the Stomp-Head’s functions, because they are all integrated into our compact amplifier. However if needed our amp is also equipped in option of controlling all its features via an external controller.
  • Connections between the amplifier and the effects are easy to make and shorter than old style conventional set-ups.
  • Reduces problems related to loss of the signal quality due to long cables runs between the amplifier and effects.
  • Set up is extremely easy and takes just seconds. All you need to do is connect the speaker cabinet, plug the power cable into the pedalboard, and hook up your guitar. Three external wires - that’s all.
  • Much less humming and interference noises due to very short connections .
  • All the controllers to adjust the sound are set in one place, on your pedalboard.
  • The sound of your guitar can be precisely set at the exact spot on stage where you play.
  • Stomp-Head 3 offers a whole range of on-board sounds as a CLEAN, CRUNCH, DRIVE and BOOST function. This eliminates the need for these extra effects on your pedalboard, and creates more space for your other stompboxes.

Here’s a story about the most interesting man in the world.

“The guitar is my first love, my partner in life. We grew up together and we’ll most likely die together.” —Thom Bresh

One of the best benefits of being a musician is that musicians know musicians, and musicians are the most interesting people you’ll ever meet. Albert Einstein, Charles Dickens, Georgia O’Keeffe, the Marx Brothers, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Juliette Lewis, Jack Black, and Zooey Deschanel are or were musicians, albeit not full-time.
