Todd Sharp Amplifiers Introduces the JOAT 30RT

Expands upon award winning flagship model the JOAT 20RT with 30 watts of power with two additional output tubes in unique output stage configuration.

Nashville, TN (June 13, 2016) -- Todd Sharp Amplifiers only launched in Feb. 2016 and their flagship model the JOAT 20RT is already generating A-list clientele and rave reviews. Expanding upon his award-winning debut model, Sharp will unveil the highly anticipated JOAT 30RT exclusively at Summer NAMM 2016 in Nashville, TN June 23-25.

Sharp’s latest model offers 30 watts of output using four power tubes (2x EL84 and 2x 6V6) in blended pairs. Sharp notes, “The JOAT 30RT model is the next step up in power - expanding on our highly successful 20RT design. I created it for the player who wants a little more kick and headroom that comes with the extra wattage. The JOAT 30 offers two optimized pairs of 6V6s and EL84s, each with its own output transformer which are then blended together at the speaker output. This technique keeps the pristine chime and clarity of the EL84 while mixing in the classic warm friendly magic of the 6V6. Otherwise, this is basically the same circuit as the 20RT. I am very happy with the overall design of the 20RT and feel that this option with its increased power will appeal to a new audience of clientele.”

The JOAT 30RT will be on site at Sharp’s booth #1255 along with the JOAT 20RT. Sharp will be present and offering exclusive specials for NAMM attendees who visit the booth.

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.

Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
