The Nyx concept was to focus on designing an amp that is single ended and class A. All hand wired with 5 watts of pure tube tone makes this little amp your ideal secret weapon for studio recording. Its power supply uses a 5Y3 tube rectifier and when you don’t want that tube sag and need more tightness at bottom end, it can be switched over to solid state during any time the amp is turned on. Its powered by a 6V6 output tube for that saturated tube overdrive when cranked and comes stock with a 12AX7 preamp tube to drive the 6V6 at its full potential. The amp has a low and high input switch to except various types of guitar pick ups or to simply lower your guitar volume. A bright switch to give the amp more life and clean sparkle. Drive switch engages a cathode capacitor to the second stage and drives the 6V6 to sweet bluesy overdrive while you dial in with only one volume knob! All finished in a carefully designed cabinet to suit a 10" speaker made from selected Radiata pine and constructed with our traditional dovetail joinery. We have also added plexi style aesthetics for that perfect combination of colours we have to offer.
