An impossibly simple head that produces incredibly good tone.
The Morgan AC20 Deluxe 20W tube guitar head is a deceptively simple amplifier that is capable of producing a myriad of early '60s British tones, but that is just the beginning. The switchable EF86 tube helps to make the range of tones from the cleanest of EL84 chime to ferocious high-gain growl. The power level control allows you to dial in just the right amount of volume without sacrificing your tone the way some master volumes do.
The AC20 Deluxe was created to solve modern guitar player amplifier issues with the ability to stay true to vintage tonality. It is equally at home in the studio or on the stage. It can be seen on the stages of superstars including Jeff Tweedy, Tim McGraw, The Band Perry, Taio Cruz and with Toshi Yanagi on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Plug into the AC20 Deluxe and you will instantly notice the familiar chime and compression of the Class A EL84-driven output section. The amplifiers extreme touch-sensitivity will allow you to coax clean tones even at the highest of gain settings. To quote Keith Armstrong (Chief Engineer at Mix LA), œIt is impossible to get a bad sound out of this amp!
The Power Level control is a big part of the magic. Most guitarists today have spent large sums of money and even more amounts of time working on their pedal boards. Most pedals are not designed to be used with a tube amp on œ1." They were designed to interact with the amplifier at or near the point at which it begins to break up. That is why an overdrive pedal is called an œover drive. It is driving the amp over that point. Unfortunately, that volume can be too loud for most live applications. The Power Level control on the AC20 Deluxe solves this. Think of conventional master volumes as a spigot on a garden hose. They choke off the signal to the power section of the amp to a usable level. Most conventional master volumes also affect the way your pedals interact with your amp. The Power Level control behaves like a zoom lens. It limits the size of the output signal that can be produced by the output tubes. It does NOT choke the signal down, and therefore behaves identical as if the amp were running at full volume. This means that you can choose the power that you need, anything from 1/4 of a watt to 20 watts.
The AC20 Deluxe uses 3 separate switches to give you all of the original early-'60s EL84 tonalities, Normal, Brilliant and EF86. Never has such a deceptively simple amp had so many tonal options.
