Product Description

Zephyr 40 Combo

The Zephyr 40 should be your first choice if you're really want to get that greasy Texas Boogie going. This amp "floods" 40 watts of output through two 6L6 tubes into an 8-inch head using the revered AB763 circuit, enabling you to connect the amp with your preferred cabinet for a beautiful, bone-chilling Southern tone. 

We also have Special SRV Options available called Texas Inferno, including a second channel option with Cesar Diaz mods and a higher output transformer plus solid state rectification for increased punch and headroom.  

If that's still not enough, all Zephyr amps come with our standard choices, which include Effects Loop, Half Power Switch, Reverb, and Tremolo via our Signature Achillies Tremolo Optocoupler (you won't get that authentic 3D throb from a pedal!).
