This incredible new design takes the sonic concept of Artist 20 to the next level of power and versatility. The marriage of the unique Hamstead Artist preamp stage with a new, fixed bias, twin EL34 output stage, brings not only extra volume and clean headroom, but enhanced dynamic range and overall flexibility, whilst retaining all the essential characteristics that our Artist Series amplifiers are renowned for.
· Single Channel EL34 amplifier · 60, 20, & 7 Watt Power Modes · Incredible Versatility · The Ultimate Pedal Platform
· Signature Reverb & Tremolo Circuits · 4-Way Quad Footswitch Included · Line Level FX Loop
Artist 60 builds upon the immensely versatile and popular Artist 20, bringing all the depth of tonal options, response, and touch sensitivity as you'd expect. Our 60 watt output stage then takes this to a new level. This isn't the Artist reinvented, but the Artist with more; effortlessly taking you from beautiful glassy cleans through to classic rock drive, and anywhere in-between. Never has there been such a deceptively simple amplifier with so many tonal options.
Artist 60 features our unique Output Power selection which enables operation in 60, 20, or 7 watt modes. From the sheer volume and presence of 60 watts, with huge amounts of clean headroom on tap, to the more easily driven 20 watt mode (similar to Artist 20); we then turn to the truly rocking 7 watt mode, giving you real low-power output valve sag. Crank up the gain for characterful splatty breakup.
Signature Reverb & Tremolo
Artist 60+RT features our popular Signature Sinewave Reverb & Tremolo circuits. Both are switchable on the front panel, or via the included footswitch. You can also change the position of these effects in the chain with a flick of a switch.
The Reverb features depth and tone controls, giving you full control from bright & twangy, to more dark, ambient sounds. The Tremolo has depth and speed controls, using analogue control of the signal to give a smooth, even sweep at any speed.
Artist 60+RT includes a foot-switchable 'Voice' mode that adds presence and bite to the upper midrange - perfect for solos and cutting through the mix. Look to the control panel and you'll find a three-position Bright switch tailors the amp even more to flavour the player’s guitar of choice, serving up warmth, chime or bite as required.
Hi and Lo preamp gain presets are selectable on the rear panel. Lo gain giving more preamp head room for cleaner tones, with Hi gain doing exactly what it says on the tin: adding more touch sensitive drive as the preamp is pushed into overdrive.
