THE STEAMBOAT CLASSIC 18


About

The Steamboat Classic 18 is the perfect amp for the grab-and-go player. This EL84 powered design is based on the classic sounds of the 1960's. Shimmering British cleans can be smoothed into the brown sound of American folk with use of the Cut and Tone controls. Four gain levels, set by a combination of HI/LO inputs and the HI/LO gain switch, will allow the player a wide range of clean, gritty, distorted and fuzzy sounds. The Non-Master Volume design will give the player maximum dynamic range and a true-to-life vintage feel. As an option for players needing lower stage or practice volume, pulling out the Cut control will transform the knob into a Master Volume.
