NAMM '10 - Budda Amps MN-100 Head

February 13, 2010
PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for the 2010 NAMM Show where she visits the Budda Amps booth. In this segment, we get to check out their newest amp for 2010 -- the MN-100.

The Budda MN-100 is a highly versatile, high-gain amplifier featuring three independent channels, a 100-watt power section driven by four 6L6GC tubes, and a preamp consisting of seven two-stage 12AX7 tubes. The MN-100 also features dual 5U4 rectifier tubes and a solid-state rectifier, with the patent-pending PowerPan? variable rectification control that allows players to open uncharted tone territory by selecting full tube rectification, diode rectification or anywhere between the two.

All three of the Budda MN-100's independent channels?Clean, Rhythm and Lead?include separate three-band EQ, Reverb, Resonance, Presence, and true bypass effects loop with send and return levels. Each channel also features Overboost, a stompbox-style lead boost that engages an additional tube-driven gain circuit to gives players a supercharged boost. The effects loop on channel 2 can also be used as a global loop for incredible versatility in effects routing. The included nine-button footcontroller digitally switches via MIDI all three channels, effects loops and Overboost functions, as well as Master Reverb and Master Boost, a second Master Volume control that can be used to boost the overall volume of the amp.

This multi-faceted, innovative amplifier found its aesthetic equal in the custom Italian leathers, signature dragon embellishments and metalwork of footwear designer Mark Nason ( No stranger to the rock&roll lifestyle, Mark Nason's signature couture creations translate easily from Sunset Boulevard to center stage on the Budda MN-100 and MN-412.

The Budda MN-100 also features a half-power switch for operating the amplifier in either 50 or 100 watt mode. The back panel also features an amplifier chain section with power-amp inputs and a slave output, impedance selector and MIDI input and output for use in MIDI-switching rigs. The matching MN-412? cabinet features four Budda Phat 12 loudspeakers and Mark Nason leather covering.
