The Whiskey 45W tube-driven head by 65amps is a collaboration between two longtime peers and friends; 65amps and LA tone guru Dave Friedman. Going for the throttled-up sound of “The Strip” in Los Angeles, Dan and Dave were able to find that unique sound in a format that is useable in a modern context. In addition to very authentic and rich distortion, the clean sound on The Whiskey is loud and proud.
The clean channel is completely outside of the Master Volume circuit, so the normal compromise of a mediocre clean sound in a high-gain amp is gone. One can actually play louder clean than dirty on this amp, if desired. The Whiskey gives all the classic sounds that associated with hot-rodded British amps without going into Ubergain. Exciting, responsive and always musical, The Whiskey encourages you to have fun and take chances. With a distinct throttled up voice of crucial British tones and behaviors, The Whiskey can meet an astonishing amount of needs in one box.
