With a long history of building high-quality, trend-setting amplifiers for discerning guitarists, Ampeg proudly welcomes a new model into its popular Diamond Blue Lead Series of combo guitar amps—the J-20 Jet.
"The new J-20 is the perfect small combo for players seeking superb tone and no-compromise, vintage construction." Ampeg New Product Manager Paul Meisenzahl continued, "Jet's design is highly evocative of classic 5E3 circuitry, but provides substantially more headroom."
The no-compromise 20-watt, all-tube J-20's retro-styling is reminiscent of the '60s in attitude, as well as tone. J-20's preamp section utilizes three 12AX7 tubes and twin 6V6 power amp tubes provide sweet clean or overdriven tone. With its point-to-point wiring, solid pine cabinet, 12" alnico speaker, 5AR4 rectifier tube, and foot-switchable, bias-vary tremolo, the Ampeg J-20 is ideal for the tone-obsessed guitarist.
The Ampeg J-20 Jet, along with other new Ampeg products for 2007, is currently on display at the NAMM Convention in Anaheim, Calif., January 18-21. Ampeg is located in Hall B, booth # 5776.
