Sommatone Vibe & Verb Series

We're proud to introduce the latest addition to our arsenal of custom boutique amps, the Vibe & Verb series. These EL34 powered tube amp yields classic British sounds that will end your search for highly sought after vintage tones at any volume. Clear chimey cleans are as attainable as the impressive crunch, rendering unrivaled versatility. These class-A amp feature a tube driven tremolo which provides warm pulses that are free of clicks and thumps that are generally associated with vintage tremolo circuits. If reverb is your thing, it's available with the same tube driven spring reverb circuit as the Roaring and Overdrive series amplifiers. You won't see this design, build quality or tonal flexibility in any other amp on the market. Hear the difference...
