The JOAT 20RT+ Amplifier

The JOAT 20RT+ Amplifier head with Reverb, Tremolo and Headroom Limit

Description

Jack Of All Tone/20 Watts/Reverb & Tremolo/Headroom Adjust. Now available with 6V6 or EL84 output stage.

The next generation RT: An additional drive stage is added in front of the power tubes. The added 12AU7 stage isn’t a “gain” stage per se but instead adds a moderate amount of drive current extension beyond the original “RT” design. This also enables a new HEADROOM adjust switch which limits output clipping level at about 70% of normal when activated.

Special sauce: Exceptionally rich plate like REVERB and ultra smooth TREMOLO. “HR” HEADROOM limits output clipping to about 15 watts when activated.  

 

Features
  • INPUT ONE: is optimized to a Single Coil pickup
  • INPUT TWO: to a Humbucker, but you can run whatever you want into either one.
  • BITE: selects upper range muscle at the first gain stage in 3 positions. 
  • HR: HEADROOM limits output clipping to about 15 watts when activated.
  • ATTITUDE: offers a useful variety of gain and EQ selections in five stepped rotary positions. 
  • LOW CUT: 5 position rotary selectable coupling network dials in the Low end sweet spot.
  • HIGH CUT: 6 position rotary selector controls a local feedback network. Instead of conventional preamp stage treble shunt control, the JOAT employs power amp treble compression. 

REVERB:

Exceptional and unique Reverb utilizing a power pentode driving a custom transformer into two shock mounted reverb tanks. Modeled after PLATE reverb.

  • DRIVE: adjusts Reverb Drive level
  • TONE: Reverb Tone
  • LEVEL: Reverb output level with PULL BRIGHT

“I am interested in building amplifiers with good reflexes. Amplifiers that respond to the way I touch the fingerboard, to subtle adjustments of the guitar controls. These are the kind of standards I hold to with my designs. Amplifiers that have personality just like instruments do.

When I plug in, it’s not just about how I want to hear the guitar. It’s about how I want to connect with the guitar - so I can connect with the music and sit right inside it. It’s very much about what happens between the fingerboard and the baffleboard. There is a dynamic relationship there and I think guitar players are looking for more agreement and less argument in that relationship.

You want to plug in, and the first thing that happens is your guitar says: “Thank You”. This is the amp that you plug into, and you don’t want to stop playing”.

“There is a certain level of sophistication at work here that sets this amplifier apart from the ordinary – now matter how you set the controls”.  Tone Quest Report
