Inside the Les Paul Classic How "Traditional" is the "Classic"? Let's find out. ...
Budda Amplification announces the return of the Budda Twinmaster, the legendary
amplifier that sparked the low-wattage revolution in guitar amplification. The
hand-wired Budda Twinmaster is a reissue of the groundbreaking amplifier that
debuted in 1995.
The Budda Twinmaster is a dynamic boutique amplifier with a straightforward feature
set in an 18-watt combo format. Completely hand-wired in the U.S.A. with high-grade
audio components, the Twinmaster features a hybrid layout that combines a
turret-board hand-wired 12AX7 preamp and a point-to-point hand-wired EL84 power amp
with a 5U4 rectifier.
The Twinmaster has a simple, plug & play feature set, with a single Volume control,
highly responsive Treble and Bass controls, and two separate inputsNormal and Hi
Gainthat feed separate tube stages for a multitude of gain characteristics. The
Normal input offers a lively palette of sweet, smooth tone that cleans up well,
while the Hi Gain input delivers a surprising amount of gain and overdrive that can
be dialed back by trimming down the guitar's volume control.
Amenities like a Slave Output and Effects Loop add modern convenience to the
Twinmaster's classic vibe. The Slave Output is connected in parallel to the speakers
and sends a padded, non-powered signal that can be used as a direct output for live
or studio recording. A separate, powered Speaker Output can be connected to a
specially tuned Budda extension cabinet, or another loudspeaker enclosure with the
proper impedance rating.
The Twinmaster chassis is loaded into a solid, finger-jointed pine enclosure,
equipped with a single 12" Budda Phat loudspeaker, and finished with a striking
black Budda covering, matching metal corner caps and classic white piping.
The Budda Twinmaster is available now from authorized Budda Amplification retailers.
