Product Description

Apollo B45 Master Volume

One of the larger siblings of the Achillies Apollo family, the B45 runs two 5881 output tubes for 45 watts of commanding textured blues and rock tone. A case in point for versatility, the B45 is capable of full frequency clean sounds which place it high on the list as a pedal platform. As the volume and compression increases, this amp barks raw drive and laps up boost pedals to really take it over top for classic American rock. All of this comes with master control at your fingertips, making it convenient for smaller events and bedroom practice. In conjunction with these time-tested characteristics, the B45 employs a GZ34 rectifier tube and either a quartet of 10-inch or two 12-inch Jensen AlNiCo speakers for the ultimate in compression, sag and punch. For single coils and humbuckers alike, the B45 delivers.

    Apollo b45

    A few years ago I asked Labros to build me a tweed bassman in a 2-12 cab using el 34 tubes. it is still my favourite amp. Despite owning an original 59 basman, 2 early original fender brownface amps and a Vox ac30 clone. I also own one of Labros' Band master clones. A sensational amp. In my humble opinion Achillies builds the best tweed replica amps. I've owned a bunch of highly regarded tweed amps from US, but sold them in frustration as they dont sound like the originals and don't have the same tonal characteristics.

    This was the second amp Labros ever made me. I loved it so much I asked him to make me another one. This is a great all round amp. I did ask Labros to add a master switch option which has been really useful. Here's a link to me playing it with a Tube Screamer and a Wah at the Palais in St Kilda.

    Great Reproduction of the Bassman

    Posted by Martin on 4th Nov 2016

    I like boutique craftsmen, and have come to realise many great musical products are made even better when constructed by companies such as Achillies Amplification. This is my second Tweed amp from Labros, and it did not let me down. And as a side note you can request it in your own colour which I really liked, and make it individual to you which is a nice touch. Besides a quality product, Labros was great with customer service and communication, and I am happy to recommend Achillies amps to my friends.
