Class A 30 watt, 4 xEL84, 1xEF86, 1xECC83; A 30W Class A combo

There is something magical in the sonic qualities of the 30W EL84 power stage driving a pair of classic British speakers. The Artisan 30 is inspired by some of the most revered combos in guitar amplifier history. The design is in the classic 30W / 2x12 combo format and is very simple to use and yet highly flexible in functionality and tone.

Handwired, Point-to-Point

Each Artisan amplifier is designed to offer the widest range of classic vintage and boutique tones to the highest possible sonic standard. This is achieved by the design of electronics circuits that work in harmony with the finest components and materials available. All the designs are simple in their operation and yet deceptively flexible in their functionality.

Switch 10W triode mode / 30W pentode mode

In pentode mode the power amplifier has a dynamic response which is rich in bell like harmonics and has a beautiful ringing top end. The triode mode allows the generation of the critical power amplifier harmonic distortion at a much lower volume but is darker and more mellow sounding with a rounder top end. The lower power setting is particularly effective for home and studio use.

Hi and Lo inputs perfect for channel blending, Blend two channels

The Artisan 30's topology allows the blending of the two channels. By paralleling the guitar connection to the inputs of Channel 1 and Channel 2 endless tonal variations can be explored. Use the hi input if you wish to achieve power amplifier break-up and overdrive. Use the lo input if you wish the amplifier to remain clean (this is especially useful if the guitar used has high output pick-ups).

Impedence selector, Match the connected speakers impedence

The control matches the amplifier's impedance to that of the connected speakers. Always ensure that the selected impedance matches that of the internal and/or external speaker cabinets. (if combo)The Artisan 15's internal speaker is 16 Ohms, so when used by itself the Impedance Selector must be set to 16 Ohms. If an additional 16 Ohm speaker cabinet is used together with the internal speaker the Impedance Selector should be set to 8 Ohms. A speaker cabinet of less than 16 Ohms should not be used together with the internal speaker. (show diagram of the speakers possible)

Welded Steel Chassis, Built to last

The Artisan 30 represents quality. This is reflected in the fact that the amplifier uses a welded steel chassis for strength and durability as well as overall quality.

5 way bass shape switch, Control the bass drive

This 5-position switch controls the bass drive into the power amplifier and enables the user to quickly and easily select from a wide palette of tonal options, from bright and glassy through to fat and smooth. In position 1 the tone is sharp with a tight, funky bottom end. In position 2 the tone is firm with lower mids. In position 3 the tone achieves a more even balance across the mid range and bass. In position 4 the tone becomes richer and deeper. Position 5 offers the warmest, fullest tone of the five positions.

2 way voice switch, Warm or Bright response

The 2-position Voice switch completely reconfigures the interstage prevoicing emphasis circuit to give either a 'Warm' or 'Bright' response.
