The all-tube design of both new Tony Bruno models – the TB35C1 and TB35C2 – features a quartet of 6V6 power tubes, known for their smooth and clean high end, creamy mids, big bass, and for their rich "breakup" when pushed. The preamp stage is driven by three 12AX7 preamp tubes, plus an additional 12AX7 paired with a 12AT7 tube to drive the reverb unit.
The single-channel preamp offers both High and Low level inputs, as well as Volume, Bass, Middle, and Treble controls. External speaker jacks and extension cabinet jacks are standard on both models. The TB35C1 (1 x 12") and TB35C2 (2 x 12") are equipped with Celestion G12-65 speakers mounted into rugged birch-ply cabinets. Unique features include the Macho switch, which provides a boost the mids and overall gain. The Bass Boost feature enhances the warm and round low-end response coming from the instrument. A Mast Volume bypass removes the Master Volume from the circuit, delivering a direct and pure tone. The Tube Reverb is features a custom-built transformer and a high quality Accutronics spring reverb tank.
Retail price: $1600 (TB35C1), $1900 (TB35C2).
