A breakthrough combo that improves on the best designs of the '50s and '60s.
The Tupelo is a breakthrough amplifier rooted in some lost early ‘60s designs from Britain’s best designer. Adapted to a 6V6 power section, the Tupelo’s unique circuitry creates a platform that reveals the true character of the 6V6 power tubes and takes them to surprising new levels.
The 6V6 power section colors the character of the front end to sound like outstanding examples of American circuitry from the late ‘50s through the mid-sixties while at the same time removing all the bad behaviors of those old amps. The Tupelo is a must for players whose ears are tuned to American circuits and sounds. Equally comfortable in every music genre, the hot-rodded Tupelo is a super-versatile cousin to the 65amps Lil’ Elvis with more power, an astonishing vocabulary, touch sensitivity and harmonic richness. It is loaded with 65amp’s “Master Voltage” circuitry to make the Tupelo comfortable at any volume in venues from bedroom to coffee house to small club to recording studio. The Tupelo also features a passive FX Loop, 2 speaker outs, 65amp’s unique bias tremolo, and of course ... rich tone for days!
All Tuprlo 65amps feature:
Mercury Magnetics Hand-wound Transformers made in Los Angeles – Custom made using the highest-grade M6 steel and pure copper windings. Mercury’s hand-wound transformers offer a quality level unparalleled in the market today. Hand-wound transformers, while much more expensive, will deliver elegant, balanced, clear vintage tone that is unmistakable.
SoZo Capacitors – For the most musical and detailed response from your amplifier. SoZos are the most musical, consistent and complete sounding capacitors on the market. Made to the highest standards in the USA.
Aluminum Chassis – All of 65smps' chassis are made from high-grade aluminum here in Los Angeles. This quality of chassis is the best we’ve found for grounding quietly, shielding against 21st century RF sources that are everywhere, and the ruggedness required for working professionals.
Authentic Allen-Bradley Carbon Comp resistors where it counts – In the signal path of all 65amps are the best sounding resistors known: Allen-Bradley Carbon Comps. Renown for decades as the “magic” part required for getting “that” sound, the Allen-Bradley resistor is an unparalleled finishing touch for your tone. All other resistors are 1% tolerance mil-spec parts made in the Americas that ensure that your amp will always be performing at peak potential and always be safe.
