2019 Amplified Nation Ampliphonix & Gain 50 Watt Head
Watchtower Guitars is very excited to be working with Amplified Nation and we will be stocking all of the models for our customer's to explore. Right now we just got in this 50 Watt Ampliphonix & Gain head with black chassis and wrapped in silver suede. These amps can be requested with almost any color suede or tolex now.
I've played a lot of Dumble inspired amps but I knew right away when I plugged into the clean channel of this amp that there was something special going on. Then there's a whole other palate of colors to play with with the gain channel. I really want potential clients to pick up the phone and give me a call and we can chat about how we can match you up with your dream amp. If you're serious about your tone and think you amplifier is as important or more important than the guitar in your hands give me a call at 845-249-9948. These amps are the real deal and I promise you won't be disappointed. Sincerely, Wasyl
From Amplified Nation:
Inspired by the D*mble Ultraphonix and Gain...the new Amplified Nation "Ampliphonix and Gain" adds a unique new offering to our product line. This amp has two independent preamps, a clean and a gain channel, and a shared output section of either 6L6 or EL34 tubes. The tones are absolutely incredible, it can lay down the heaviest saucy gain, or the sweetest cleans with perfect clarity.
The gain side of the amp is very focused, and heavy, hard-rock, late 60's modded Plexi. It shoots notes into howling controlled feedback with ease. It's scooped mid tones are reminiscent of EVH and have incredible presence. The low end stays tight even on hard hits of the low E.
The clean channel is very 'Fender' and what most people know from the D*mble Ultraphonix amp. Very clean, very swirly, and very clear. It has a bright switch that really accents the EQ nicely.
These D*mble creations are even more rare than the ODS and SSS with only a handful that were made from old Fender amps. Most of those modded amps feature only clean channels on either side of a Bassman, Bandmaster, Showman, or any of the older Fender preamps. The Ultraphonix we got, was a very special one, marked "Ultraphonix and Gain" by the big guy...and he was not messing around with this build!!! The Gain channel is not one that has been heard by many.
We had the pleasure of having that amp for almost a year and really got to know it's sonic characteristics. It took months to get the amp right, but we were able to clone it to remarkable levels of perfection.
Once we had the circuit figured out, we created our own more modern version that includes a passive loop and reverb on both channels. Instead of completely separate inputs, the channels are selectable by footswitch. You can also kill the reverb with the footswitch if you want to create an exact replica of the Ultraphonix and Gain. This is the best Plexi tones meets the best Fender tones we have ever heard!
