Texas Tone 30 Tube Guitar Amplifier

Please inquire for current lead time.

This amp is not a "clone".  The TEXAS TONE™ 30 is 'inspired by' the tweed Bassman, it's near-twin the JTM45, and the black-faced Pro, with some important changes.
  • I've replaced the Bright channel with a Lead channel, with changes to the gain and frequency response to allow for a bit more drive for rock leads, with or without pedals. (I call this my BB King amp, because when I jumper the channels and play my Tele through the neck pickup, I can get those sweet BB King tones.) 
  • The Lead channel is especially pedal-friendly, specifically voice for overdrive, with reduced bass response in the first gain stage. The result is more headroom and maximum volume without muddiness.
  • Using a boost pedal with the Lead channel results is beautiful high-gain tube amp overdrive.
  • The two channels can be jumpered to provide a thicker tone with more drive.
  • The Presence control has been supplanted by a Voicing control with a bit more drive than the tweed Bassman.
  • The phase splitter circuit in the Texas Tone 30 is a special hybrid design to use a Mullard New Production 12AX7 type tube for maximum bandwidth and drive.
  • Single 12" Eminence Recoat CV-75 speaker.
  • Modern grounding techniques for hum and hiss free operation.
The result is a loud, versatile combo amp with a single 12" vintage voiced Eminence speaker, that can play clean or get great rock tone. As usual, the noise floor of the TEXAS TONE™ 30 is quite low, designed for, and resulting in, reduced hum and hiss.
