The Dual Citizen from 3rd Power is a boutique amp designed to nail classic tones from vintage Vox and Fender circuits
Our vintage 60’s Supro Thunderbolt features the original 15″ Jensen speaker, which gives it a massive sound. It’s very ‘vintage’ sounding, but still extremely versatile. It’s huge low end stays refined when pushed with gain. This amp delivers big rich cleans and driven tones with tons of harmonics.
From 1963 till mid-1964, Fender produced the 6G6-B Bassman, often referred to as the ‘Tuxedo’, given it’s mixture of brown and black-panel appointments. It is a highly coveted and rather rare version of the Bassman, and embodies tonal characteristics of the earlier tweed as well as the legendary black panel designs. We tone-matched these presets using the original 2×12 piggy-back cab loaded with the original vintage Oxford speakers.
The Imperial is Tone King’s take on a Fender Deluxe Reverb, but with some very welcome modern tweaks. To our ears, the low end is tightened up significantly, which results is much smoother and more use-able driven sounds from the amp. This is one of our all-time favorite Fender Deluxe tones..
The C-30 from Matchless is an absolutely legendary amp. This was Matchless’s first amp design, featuring a 12ax7 (Top Boost inspired) channel and an EF86 (thicker with more gain). Our is from 1994 – often referred to as the ‘Sampson era’. One of the best sounding amplifiers we’ve ever heard.
