Freight Train Amplifier, Head Unit
Four 6L6GC power tubes deliver 50 Watts, in a pure class-A circuit.
50 Watts, pure class-A was pretty much unheard of, until this amp came along.
The idea behind it is simply this: Give high headroom with the sweet tone of
a cathode bias amp, and provide a solid platform for running effects
when you need them.
The result is clean sparkle, chime, major punch, and a clean powerful low-end.
Besides offering a lot of headroom, the breakup is very smooth and transparent.
And there's a clean boost switch included on the front panel. Use this to
instantly add gain, touch sensitivity, and sparkle.

Point-to-point, hand-wired circuitry
Half-power switch, 50/25 Watts
