The Burnside is a 28 watt Two-Rock version of the wide panel tweed circuit and combines the dynamics and touch sensitivity of a vintage tweed amp with the modern clarity of a Two-Rock. The Burnside will instantly give you that classic vibe and feel with the comforts of new reliability.
We’ve always had a passion and respect for tweed history. So, we tasked Bill Krinard with blending both modern and 50’s tweed voicing in one amp.
This amp features a pair of 6L6’s, GZ34 tube rectifier and a 12AY7 in V1, or you can swap this tube with a 12AX7 to increase the gain. The front panel control layout features a bright switch and a user friendly control layout: GAIN, TREBLE, BASS, and PRESENCE. One of the great features of this amp, much like vintage tweed amps, is how the tone controls react. At any volume the gain is dependent on how hard you are attacking the strings, and when you turn the bass control all the way up, the bass gets that horn-like trombone low-end.
This amp features a passive effects loop and 4, 8, and 16 OHM speaker outputs. The amp chassis is finished in an elegant bronze color with cream lettering and we’ve made a departure from birch to pine cabs for more of that vintage feel and attack.
