Cornell / Vintage Brown / Black / Amp For Sale

The Cornell Vintage Brown 10 – “Honouring the 80’s”

Vintage refers to the 1980’s sound. Brown refers to the tone sought after by many guitar players of that generation.

It is common for modern amplifiers to incorporate several valve stages to achieve high gain. This tends to reduce the response, colour the tone and suppress the player’s natural technique.

By incorporating the guitar’s volume control as part of the amplifier’s preamp design this amp will deliver plenty of gain and still retain the guitar’s tone and feel.

It works by having more than the normal amount of gain in the first stages of amplification. With the guitar on full there will be pre amp distortion, while turning the guitar volume down will clean up the sound.

You can have a Vintage Brown 10 in a different covering. We have dozens available and some are zero cost extras. Or you might want a different speaker - maybe a Celestion Vintage 30.
