Olsson Amps / George Wadenius Signature Model Custom Reverb 36WE / 2016 / Amp
In close cooperation with Mr. George Wadenius we had the pleasure to develop his signature model. George is a fabulous guitarist with long experience from different types of playing situations. With this model we have made an amp that will inspire you and make it extra fun to play. The amp is based on Custom Reverb 36 with extended functionality. It has two channels, one normal and one brighter. With the channel switch you can select between the two channels or you can mix them together for even more sound characteristics. The mix function will also give you a bit more gain compared to Custom Reverb 36. A master volume is also present at the front panel. This will give you the opportunity to crank the amp a bit, at lower volumes. The 18/36 watt switch is located at the front panel and makes it easy to reduce the output power. The amp is hand built, in Sweden, with point-to-point technique and has an extremely well balanced sound. It’s also a very dynamic and detailed amp which responds directly when playing. The built in spring reverb mixes nicely with the original sound and becomes a natural part of the total sound experience. The amp is also a perfect partner for all type of effect pedals.
The included foot pedal is used to switch between the channels and to turn the reverb on and off. The pedal has a removable cable so you can mount it on your pedal board.
Custom Reverb 36WE is a very versatile amp with an amazing sound, playability and quality.
Olsson Amps, Sweden
Olsson Amps is a company focusing on hand built, hand wired guitar tube amps with excellent sound and build quality. Behind Olsson Amps you will find me, John Olsson, designer and builder of the amps. I’ve been working with music, guitar amps and electronic design since I was a teenager.
In the 70ths I worked for Hagström in Stockholm as a sound and service engineer for many years. At this time my real interest for guitar amp and mixer console design took off. After leaving Hagström I spent a couple of years constructing custom mixing consoles for stage use. Later on I had a small business manufacturing tube amp kits beside my ordinary work.
In the beginning of 2012 I finally got the possibility to realize my vision - Producing excellent hand build guitar tube amps for you who think that sound and building quality is as important as I do.
