Taking its styling cues from classic US motorcycles, the Drophead 200 bass head grabs your attention before you even switch it on.
Throw the power switch and the Drophead 200 fires up a 4 x 6550 and 1 x ECC83 tube output stage for masses of low end grunt and plenty of torque through the rev range. The preamp comes straight from the 427 Small Block – a sensationally expressive vacuum tube design using 1 x ECC82 and 1 x ECC83 valves.
The Drophead 200 head features high and low gain inputs, front panel-mounted FX send and return, rotary bass, middle and treble controls with mid shift, bass shift and bright switching, mute switch, rotary gain and master volume controls and balanced DI output with pre/post EQ switching.
Put one on top of a Classic Series cabinet and the result is one of the best-sounding and certainly best-looking bass rigs in the business.
