Acorn Amps Debuts The Petito


Atlanta, GA - December 13, 2017 - Acorn Amplifiers is proud to release the Petito, a 7 watt all-tube amp designed to deliver unparalleled guitar tone in one sleek, compact enclosure. Inspired by low wattage tube amps of the 1960s like the Ampeg Jet and Fender Champ, the Petito is a unique circuit designed by Acorn founder and head engineer, Tyler Petito. “I was experimenting with octal (8 pin) preamp tubes for this design. What we ended up with was a super versatile low wattage combo that can take anything you throw at it, genre-wise.” The Petito sports a tube compliment of one 12AT7 and one 6SN7 preamp tube, a single 6V6 power tube, and a GZ34 tube rectifier. The control panel displays a straightforward yet versatile Treble, Mid, Bass tone stack, and features a Volume control that adds more and more pleasing harmonic tube gain as the decibel level rises. Available as a head or 1x12 combo with the amp side- mounted next to a 12’’ WGS Reaper speaker, the Petito is a perfect marriage of new yet vintage, classic yet unique.



    • Original circuit design, not a copy or clone of any other amp, hand built and

      hand wired by obsessive compulsive perfectionists in Atlanta, GA

    • Tube saturated, harmonic guitar tone at bedroom/studio volumes

    • 7 all-tube watts from one 12AT7 preamp tube, one 6SN7 preamp tube, one 6V6

      power tube, and one GZ34 rectifier tube

    • Built using individually measured high quality audio-grade components

    • Compact and lightweight baltic birch enclosure housing as a head box or combo

      with a 12’’ WGS Reaper speaker
