Bitar Amplifiers Complete tube tone
Freight Train Amplifier, Head Unit

Four 6L6GC power tubes deliver 50 Watts, in a pure class-A circuit. 50 Watts, pure class-A was pretty much unheard of, until this amp came along. The idea behind it is simply this: Give high headroom with the sweet tone of a cathode bias amp, and provide a solid platform for running effects when you need them.

The result is clean sparkle, chime, major punch, and a clean powerful low-end. Besides offering a lot of headroom, the breakup is very smooth and transparent. And there's a clean boost switch included on the front panel. Use this to instantly add gain, touch sensitivity, and sparkle.

Prove it to yourself. Standard features include:
Point-to-point, hand-wired circuitry
Half-power switch, 50/25 Watts
Series effects loop
4-8-16 ohm speaker output
2 speaker jacks, wired in parallel
