The Model One Guitar amp is my interpretation of the late 50's tweed Princeton. I build each one of these amps by hand using a hand built Garolite eyelet circuit board and point to point wiring.  I use only American made  electrolytic capacitors and components.  I really build this amplifier "Old School".  

I also use only a special "air-gapped" type of output transformer. In a Class A design, this is essential to eliminate core saturation (and subsequent distortion) in the output transformer. This arrangement ensures maximum volume and tone when the amplifier is pushed. I have also included a standard 50's style Tone control, and a Master Volume control.  

There is another feature that sets this amp apart. This feature is a Power Amplifier Mode switch, located on the rear. This switch controls the damping factor of the amplifier. You have three modes of operation:  Early Tweed,  Late Tweed and Modern.   This switch allows you to match the amplifier to the type of speaker that you choose. For example:   

"Early Tweed" works best for Alnico magnet speakers.  This mode is reflective of amplifier design of the early 1950's, using NO Negative Feedback.

"Late Tweed" works uses Negative Feedback, as was common in the late 1950's amplifiers.  This is the standard mode and works well with most speakers.

"Modern" is a specially designed Frequency Compensation circuit.  This mode balances the relative volume of your guitar, from string to string. Typical unwound G strings tend to ring louder than the other strings. The Modern Mode corrects this.  The net effect is that the guitar becomes more playable.

This all tube Amplifier is based on the Classic '59 Bassman 5F6-A circuit with some unique improvements. I combined this classic circuitry with a Master Volume and an Accutronics 3-spring Reverb tank. All of this is mounted in a head cabinet with metal grill. This amp works great for Guitar with one of our open back guitar cabinets.  I is also a great sounding bass amp with a solid punchy tone when combined with our 115-HO ported high output bass cabinets. 

I can also build this amp for you as a "British Amp", using two EL34 power tubes for 45W. 

Note - Thanks to Brian Feist of the Blues Redemption for field testing the Classic Reverb!
