Expands Upon Award-Winning JOAT Line with 1 x 12” Combo
Todd Sharp Amplifiers introduces a new combo version of their highly acclaimed JOAT Guitar Amplifier. Launched in Feb. 2016 by renowned guitarist Todd Sharp, the amp has generated an A-list clientele, rave reviews, and a Guitar Player Editors’ Pick Award, the highest honor from the publication.
The flagship JOAT (Jack Of All Tone) series amplifiers, available in 20, 30 and 45 watt configurations with Reverb/Tremolo and matched 2×12” cabinets, offer a unique approach to vacuum tube guitar amplification. There is no tone stack (conventional bass, mid, treble controls), nor the loss that comes with a conventional tone stack. “It’s all tone, but you can take some away if you like,” Sharp says. The JOAT circuit employs a unique approach to gain and tone architecture.
The all-new just released single 12” JOAT combo mirrors the original JOAT direct coupled open loop amplifier design. Features: Single Coil/Humbucking tailored Inputs, 3 position Bite switch, Volume, Attitude, Low Cut, High Cut, Headroom Switch, Tremolo Speed and Depth. Rear panel: Amplifier Phase Switch, Tremolo Foot Switch, 4/8/16 ohm output selector, Main & Ext Speaker jacks, Mains & HiV fusing, Internal: 120/240 Mains adjust.
The debut combo will feature an EL84 output stage at 20 watts into various speaker options including a custom 12” Alnico. Additional output tube and power options will follow later in the year.
Sharp will be exhibiting at Summer NAMM booth 1255 (July 13 – 15) in Nashville, and at the LA Amp Show rooms 183/185 in Los Angeles (Sep 30 – Oct 1).
