The 3rd Power American Dream tube guitar combo amp was designed from the ground up for players who are drawn to the distinctive sounds that came out of Fullerton, CA in the early and mid '60s. Channel one is based on the '62 Brownface. Paired with P-90s or humbuckers, it only takes a little elbow grease to send it into a complex tweed style breakup. Channel two is based on the '65 Blackface and has an uncanny ability to stylistically travel wherever your pedal board will take you.
Individual channel levels are handled by separate volume controls. Precise volume levels are handled by 3rd Power's patent pending HybridMASTER control located on the rear panel.
Further sonic detailing is made possible via the SwitchBACK enclosure design. Notably, players can choose the sound and feel of an "open back" or "closed back" cab by way of a removable trangle port lid. Greatly enhancing the vintage experience, the enclosure construction creates individual compartments for the speaker, preamp tubes and power tubes. The isolation keeps the combo free from the rattles and buzzes that are found in so many combos.
A two-channel combo with HybridMASTER.

Comments about 3rd Power Amps American Dream 30W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
Beautiful Fender sounds and versatile with the dual channels. I upgraded to the Gold speaker, but the new speakers are an upgrade over the original. Amp maintains its clarity, feel and warmth at low volumes. Takes pedals, including overdrive, extremely well. Large investment so make sure this is what you want. The Blackface sounds are dead on and the Brownface adds an incredible warmth. 3rd power sells a switcher or buy one from Radial and switch back and forth. This would be just like having an original Brownface and Blackface style amp on your backline.
