A hybrid guitar combo with tube tone that's perfect for practice and recording.
The AG10 combo features a very unique “hybrid” preamplifier section combining high voltage FETs (field effect transistors) and a 12AX7/ECC83 tube. This special circuit is supplied with a high voltage dc supply, rare in small guitar amplifiers. This combination of circuit gives great tube tone, as it should because it is essentially a tube circuit. The special high voltage FET that is used is the closest electronic device to an actual valve, but without some of the drawbacks of using an actual tube (cost, heat, high parts count), and will give reliable performance.
The power amplifier circuit of the AG10 uses a solid state power amp circuit that also has some “tweaks” that lead to a very convincing valve-like tone. A true monster of tone in a small practise amp priced packaged.
The AG10 also uses an 8 inch loudspeaker instead of the 6-1/2" loudspeaker. This also helps in giving a bigger more satisfying tone than other amps in this price range.
The AG10 has a control line-up of GAIN control and DRIVE switch to set up the preamp circuit for clean and overdrive functions, BASS, MIDDLE and TREBLE controls for tone shaping applications, and a Master VOLUME to control the output level from whisper quite to full bore.
The amp is also fitted with a 3.5mm Input Jack to be able to connect your MP3 or CD player (or any other auxiliary device such as a drum machine). This is a stereo socket, and uses a standard stereo 3.5mm lead, mixing the signal into mono mode suitable for the amplifier circuit, giving you the facility to play along to recorded tracks for practise purpose.
Another 3.5mm socket allows the use of standard stereo headphones for private use.
The output of the AG10 can also be plugged into another loudspeaker cabinet, bypassing the internal loudspeaker. Plugging into a bigger cabinet widens the tone available to something rather special! Great for using the AG10 as a superb “classic rock” recording amp.
