For Blues:


  • Breaks up with natural tube distortion, giving you that great classic blues sound!
  • Plenty loud enough for your live blues shows and will cut through that mix!

For Country:


  • Offers that nice break up (just over the edge) that country players dig!
  • Plenty loud enough for your live shows and has lots of twang to cut through that mix!

For Jazz:

If you like a little grits with your eggs…

  • Probably won't give you enough headroom without breaking up in a live Jazz situation. Then again, if you like Southern Jazz, these grits rock!
  • You'll never use the dirt channel, but it's there, HOWARD!
  • Side note. Southern Jazz isn't a thing just yet, but I'm totally gonna make it a THING!

For Metal:


  • You need to look at our Missy for that!
  • Seriously, go look at the Missy. If you're into classic metal, go look at the Jimmy.
