Basson Sound have released their long-awaited all tube guitar amplifier, the BGA1, designed by Basson's namesake, Victor Basson, and engineer Jim Williams. Jim's resume includes custom engineering for the likes of Frank Zappa, Stevie Wonder, Peter Frampton, George Duke, Billy Sherwood & Yes.
This two-channel, footswitchable, class A/B powerhouse is rated at 120 watts @ 4 or 8 ohms. The country clean to metal mean tone is generated by four Sovtek 12AX7A pre-amp tubes, and four Sovtek 6CA7 power tubes. Basson included an additive EQ, active all-tube send and receive controllable effects loop, point to point wiring, silver mica capacitors, silver Teflon wire, (which are also military spec) and military grade metal film resistors.
Covering available is black Tolex with black or grey mesh face. A top grab handle and nickel or black corner protectors are included depending on the model chosen.
These amplifiers are selling in the U.S.A for an MSRP of $1,595. A five-year limited manufacturers warranty is included with every Basson product.
