3rd Power Amps

Two-channel combo with classic California tone and HybridMASTER.

The 3rd Power American Dream combo guitar amp with a Celestion Alnico Gold speaker was designed from the ground up for players who are drawn to the distinctive early and mid '60s sounds coming out of Fullerton, CA. Channel one is based on the '62 Brownface and can offer complex tweed style breakup. Channel two is based on the '65 Blackface, offering clean headroom and mid-scoop voicing and delivering a juicy '60s American tone.

Individual channel levels are handled by separate volume controls. Precise control of volume is handled by the patent-pending HybridMASTER control. The amp is finished with a high-quality tolex covering and distinctive piping. A black powdercoat finish on the chassis contrasts perfectly.

Further sonic detailing is made possible via the SwitchBACK enclosure design. Players can choose and "open back" or "closed back" sound by way of a removable triangle port lid. Greatly enhancing the vintage experience, the construction has individual compartments for the speaker, preamp tubes and power tubes. This keeps the combo free from the rattles and buzzes found in many other all-in-one combos.

    This is a very,very responsive amp! 3rd power amps are among the greatest sounding amps I have ever played and or owned. Excellent on stage or in the studio.The Hybrid Masters you can dial in your saturation at any volume level. Dynamic, articulate and responsive are the best words I can find to describe these amazing amps. I am 3rdPower for life!

    Comments about 3rd Power Amps American Dream 30W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp with Alnico Gold Speaker:

    I probably owned 20+ Fender type amps and this is by far the best. Has the signature black/brownface sound but without the sometimes "ice pick" or harshness problems that they often portray. Quite pricey, but you get what you pay for. Heavy for a 1x12 combo, but worth it due to the extra depth and warmth the heft delivers. Excellent amp!
