    Hello All,
    WE are about to go into production of our new stereo power amp.

    It went over very well at NAMM, weighs in at around 15 pounds, sounds like a heavy tube amp and is THE answer for all of you AXEFX, and Digi11 guys.

    We have a no obligation interest list that we are starting and I will be doing another video demo this weekend.
    No deposits will be taken and no money will change hands until we are ready to ship

    The amps wattage has been doubled for production and will top out at around 150 watts per channel.

    More video demos coming.

    Thanks for your interest

    Lance

    Sounds amazing!
    Actually inspires me to play guitar! (That doesn't happen with many demos...)

    Checked this sucker out at NAMM....super bad-ass. And the tube pre=amp sounded killer as well!

    Andy we will know the Retail price in a few days.
    We are working really hard to keep it reasonable.
    Less than you might imagine.

    Guitarzan..
    Thanks for dropping by the NAMM booth.
    We do have the new GJIKA Tube amp as well.

    My idea of the super rig....
    GJIKA single ended amp
    Its actually a whole amp with power tube and tiny speaker (active load)... in a two rack space box..
    I am using the 4 cable method with that amp to the Fractal.

    So in essence what I can do is use a tube amp for all of my normal LK gain stuff and switch to the Fractal pre for things like AC30, and Deluxe Reverb... things I don't want to carry around...

    I use the Fractal back end effects on the Gjika as well, verb, delay, pitch etc.. and that all goes down to the stereo Power amp.
    The Whole rig could be 6 rack spaces and cover a LOT of ground,.

    Its fun..

    We will be introducing and pricing the Gjika soon as well.

    The power amp will come first.

    Cool product, Lance. Wish I still had my AxeFX. Depending on pricing, that could be a big hit with the AFX guys.

    Will this work for powering a FR cab or is this more for a traditional guitar cab?

    You can power a full range cab with it but it is designed to work with guitar cabs.

    Lance,

    Can this stereo power amp be bridged to mono?

    Thanks.

    You want a 300 watt mono guitar amp?

    Perhaps not.

    I'm thinking of using this with the Ethos preamp/OD pedal which is mono. I guess I'm just used to bridging power amps when mono is only needed.

    It wouldn't be a must as you don't need to load the non used side as it is solid state.
