Four new tube amps and combos based on 3RD POWER’s innovative American Dream and British Dream amplifiers for working musicians.

(Nashville, TN)– One of the hottest amp companies on the market, 3RD POWER  Amplification, has announced it will bring four new “Dream” models to  market at the upcoming NAMM Show in  Anaheim. The new DREAM SOLO Series consists of four new hand-wired valve amps and 112 combos based on 3RD POWER’s popular American Dream and British Dream amplifiers. Each purpose-built single channel model delivers  cornerstone  iconic guitar tones of American and British classics; the 1962  Brownface Deluxe, the 1965 Blackface Deluxe, the 1959 AC30 and the 1968  Plexi. The new Dream Solos bring 3RD POWER’s innovative circuitry and  cabinet design technology within reach of gigging musicians  everywhere. Dream Solos will be available early February starting at  the introductory price of $1699 for each head and $1999 for each 112  combo.

“The Dream Solos combine all of our proprietary  technology into a grab-n-go form factor that makes gigging, recording,  touring and even rehearsing an inspiring event and puts it within reach  of most working musicians,” says company founder  and designer Jamie Scott. “The Dream Solos simply and elegantly put the  essential building blocks of tone in the hands of working musicians  allowing them to be in the moment and connect musically with their  audience better than ever before.”

Dream Solo 1 is based on the Brownface channel of the American Dream complete with  its signature mid-bump voicing that confidently conjures early ‘60s  American tone that cuts through  a mix. Controls include: Volume, Tone, Presence and a bright switch.
 
Dream Solo 2 is based on the Blackface channel of the American Dream complete with  its signature mid-scoop voicing that delivers that plump and juicy mid  ‘60s American guitar tone that is wide, rich  and spanky without getting in the way. Controls include: Volume, Bass,  Treble, Presence and a bright switch.

Dream Solo 3 is based on the ’59 AC channel of the British Dream complete with its  signature chime and growl as delivered by an EF86 preamp pentode for  authentic British inspired tones  that have inspired hits from both sides of the Atlantic. Controls  include: Volume, three-position Brilliance Switch, Top Cut and Presence.

Dream Solo 4 is based on the ’68 Plexi channel of the British Dream complete with  its signature edge and slice that delivers the attitude of a stack  without ripping your head off.  Controls include: Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence.

Each Dream Solo model features an insert-style effects  loop. The power section consists of a fixed-bias 6V6 duet paired with a  custom-voiced Heyboer output transformer feeding signal to a Celestion  G12H 70th Anniversary loudspeaker.  Power output is 20 watts. Also included is 3RD POWER’s patent-pending  HybridMASTER volume management technology that allows the guitarist to  separately control the listening levels independent of the tone of the  amplifier.

3RD POWER also introduces another innovation, FLEX CAB technology. Strategically located inside the enclosure is a single  deflection panel that works to create a triangular  speaker chamber similar to our other high-end enclosures. Together with  our triangle back panel port and proprietary acoustic treatments FLEX  CAB technology delivers a much wider, fuller frequency response than  typical rectangle enclosures that can be distinctly  heard in the room as well as through a PA or on a recording. This  radical approach has the added advantage of eliminating the standing  waves that are inherent byproducts of traditional rectangular cabinet  designs, allowing the true tonality of the amplifier  to come through loud and clear. Better still, Dream Solo enclosures are  constructed with 12mm Baltic Birch and weigh in at 35 lbs. for the 112  combo, and a mere 24 lbs. for the head, making “grab-n-go” a snap.

The Dream Solo Series amplifiers are hand-wired in the USA and carry an  introductory street price of $1699 for the amp head and $1999 for the  112 combo. It will be unveiled and available to play at Winter NAMM,  January 19-22, 2012 at the Anaheim Convention Center.  3RD POWER Amplification is located in Booth 2984, Hall D. dealers and  avid tone fanatics are encouraged to stop by.
