Groove Tubes is pleased to present the latest addition to their Soul-o Series amplifier line, the Soul-o Single, an amp designed for the studio and live gigs that mic-up the amp.
The Soul-o Single is a true single ended Class A amp that uses just a single power tube...but you can use almost any power tube you like from a 6L6 to a 6550 or even a EL84 with Groove Tubes' 928 socket adapter. The power ranges from 7 to 15 watts, and the sonic signature also changes to reflect the power tube you choose...and you change tubes in seconds without any adjustments.
The Single's two preamp stages can also use a range of various preamps tubes such as 12AX7, 12AT7, 12AY7 and 5751 for example, all of which modify the Single's tonal signature and gain. Think of new Single as a little "tube sampler" amp that offers up a rainbow of tube tones just by changing the tubes. It also has a parallel FX loop with mix control, a "pull" Gain Boost with optional footswitch, a special hand built multiple secondary output transformer and impedance selector that chooses between 4-8-16 Ohms...any of which offer even more tone and gain options and are safe to use regardless of the speaker impedance connected. Of coarse the Single has a full set of gain and tone controls that allows the player to set the amp to range anywhere from fat & clean to crunch & shred.
The Single's welded steel chassis is chrome plated for durability. Both the combo and amp top cabinets are made of special lightweight solid core Alder plywood and covered in Black Tolex with Tan grills. The Single's combo cab has a specially designed slanted baffle board that holds a Jensen PR10 Alnico 10" speaker. The MSRP for the Single 10" combo package is $999, and $899 for the Single top package. The optional Gain Boost footswitch with a 20' cable is $59.
