Nail any tone you want and amplify it with classic Celestion sound.
The B-52 ST-6012 60W Tube 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp with Celestion Vintage 30's has a 100% all-tube signal path that combines Sovtek 6L6 power tubes with 12AX7 preamp tubes for solid tube tone and classic breakup. This B-52 combo amp is capable of monstrous gain, extreme distortion, and sparkling clean tones through 2 channels. All those tones are accurately reproduced by a pair of 12" Celestion Vintage 30s with 70W handling. The Clean and Overdrive channels have their own sets of volume and EQ controls (3-band bass, mid, and treble), with 2 gain knobs and an interactive Contour control (Gain 2) on the Overdrive channel.
You can further shape your tone by selecting 3 rectifier settings. The solid-state setting delivers the tightest low-end definition and fastest attack. Tube A gives you a vintage attack and feel with the warmest sound. Tube AB1 is in between the first two: punchy, warm, sound with more definition than Tube A. B-52 made the ST-6012 combo amp roadworthy with 13-ply Baltic birch construction.
A combo you can play anywhere and can easily craft any tone you want. Order now.

This is a solid amp. Period. I was looking for a solid amp with 100% tube tone. This one fit the ticket. And its loaded with Vintage 30s? How can you go wrong? It is essentially a poor-man's Mesa/Boogie. It doesn't offer as wide of variey of tone as a Mesa, but it damn near comes close. I play in a progressive rock band and have used this amp without a backup since March 2008. It is solid and sounds wonderful. The overdrive channels are perfect, in my opinion. Many people with B-52 amps don't like the crunch that this amp delivers and go more for a chuggy type of distortion. You won't be disappointed with this amp. Oh yeah, and its really, really heavy.
Anyone who hasn't tried this amp should really check it out. I played it the other day at a local music store and i was blown away by the tone of this amp. This amp sounds better than any other amp at this price, Period. With most other amps, you are paying for the brand name, but here, you're paying for pure tube tone, and driving celestion 30's. Amazing. on clean, this amp deliver pristine highs and awesome lows, and with overdrive, you get roaring crunch, with great note clarity. This amp has everything you could ask for, because who needs all those modeling effects anyways. Believe me, try it out, and if you have the cash, get it.
