The Windy City 1X8 5 Watt - All Tube - Harmonica Amp

from 385.00

 

The Windy City is really howlin’ some fierce tone at an extremely low price of $365 plus shipping. Sonic Pipe Amplifiers have designed the paramount of small amplifiers with its astounding array of tonal attributes at various settings. You will hear tone ranging from 1940’s warm crunch, the 1950’s tweed tone, and the 1960’s crispy gain. With an independently designed circuit that includes features like no other amplifier, we are confident that this amplifier will hit the spot. The Windy City starts life in China and has been completely rewired and internally redesigned in none other than Chicago, Illinois to deliver the most versatile and striking amplifier to date.

The Windy City Features...

1x8 combo with choice of speaker:
Here at Sonic Pipe Amplifiers you have 3 choices of speakers, rather than one. The Weber Signature 8” Ceramic (stock), and the Weber Signature 8" Alinco
the Eminence 8” 820H Alnico for $25.00 additional.

If you have your own favorite 8 inch speaker, just drop us a note, we will check its fitment and do our best to accommodate your special requests.

 

Brightness Cutoff Switch:
The Windy City is not feedback resistant but is easily tamable with very simple settings. To tame the high end even more or to achieve the possibility of cutting more high end, we have included the Brightness cutoff switch. This can be used in conjunction with any setting on the amplifier and we find it quite useful.

Bias Switch:
This switch is designed to play at different bias settings and is intended to be used when changing the power tubes. After testing around with it, we have found that there is even more tonal diversity with mismatched tube and bias settings.

Switchable Power Tubes:
The 6V6 and 6L6 power tubes are included with the Windy City amplifier. This is a genius option, which broadens your amplifiers tonal capacity.

6SJ7 Octal Preamp:
This was a recommended preamp tube from our experienced tester to say: “Hey let’s do something different.” Or “Everyone else uses the 12A series of preamp tubes.” This also opens the door for earlier and more of a vintage sounding tone.

6X4 Tube Rectifier:
Similar to the 5Y3 rectifier, the 6X4 has been included in a lot of the vintage amps that we have had experience with.

Built In Line Out:
It is simply that, plug it into any Public Address System and go!

Tested by a experienced Harmonica Players:
Our testers have donated their time and suggestions to pave the way for this amplifier to be possible.

One of a kind circuit:
A lot of boutique amplifiers today have copied previous circuits and sound great with plenty of reasons for doing so. The Windy City has a distinct sound of its own and gives you everything that a 1x8 combo can deliver.

Hand Wired:
This amplifier is completely hand wired with no printed circuit boards at all.

Tweed is the standard finish.  Black tolex is also a free option.

Laquered finish offered as an upgrade, $25.00 at checkout
