The Fryette Aether 25W 1x12" guitar combo amplifier is an unconventionally conceived, single-channel tone machine takes a hold of your soul and guides you effortlessly into a new world of guitar expression you’ve not likely experienced before.
Fryette believes the guitar amplifier is more than just an accessory for a nice guitar. It is an equal part of the guitar/amplifier playing experience – like a bow is to a violin. With Aether, they raise the bar for amplifier personality, behavior and contribution to artistic expression on the part of the player. The designers intended for Aether to be visually and functionally unique and nowhere is that more clearly expressed than in the separate preamp/cabinet and power amp module.
The preamp starts with a warm and balanced jazz flavor that gradually develops into a thick harmonic wall of sustain and overdrive that is easily reigned in with your guitars volume control. Once the power amp module is pushed to the onset of distortion, you'll discover a blend of preamp and power amp distortion behavior unlike any amp you've ever played before.
The tone controls are completely different from anything you’ll find on a vintage, boutique-style reproduction. Fryette uses active tube equalization to enhance the natural characteristics of the tone-woods and hardware of the instrument. So whether you are playing clean with a hollow or semi-hollow guitar or slamming it with a solid-body, you feel a level of interplay between the amp and instrument not likely to be found on any other amp, new or old.
The Aether Tremolo, like everything else in this amplifier is as unique and expressive as you’ll find anywhere. While most tremolo circuits attenuate the amplified guitar signal which tends to suppress dynamics and string harmonics, the Aether tremolo boosts the signal, producing a highly touch-sensitive playing experience that enhances sustain and harmonic feedback. As a bonus, you can turn the Tremolo Intensity to zero and use the tremolo function as a built-in tube boost that delivers thick slabs of rich sustain.
No expense was spared to deliver the ultimate Aether reverb experience. The Accutronics three-spring reverb pan is impedance matched and carefully selected for rich reflections and musical decay. The reverb drive and recovery amplifiers are carefully tuned and voiced to complement any instrument and playing style.
The preamp and power amplifier sections are housed in separate chassis. This helps keep hum and noise to almost imperceptible levels, reduces power tube vibration which will extend tube life, and minimizes electro-acoustic phase cancellation typically present in a combo amplifier that can impact tone and sustain. It is wonderful to look at, connect and operate, and remarkably convenient to transport due to the thoughtful weight distribution of the power amp and cabinet system.
No amplifier is complete without a speaker and Fryette is one of the few amplifier companies who truly understands speaker design and the importance of integrating speaker behavior into the sonic performance of the amplifier. After almost two years in the making, Steven Fryette, working closely with the design and engineering team at Fane Acoustics, UK, have developed a speaker uniquely capable of expressing the full tonal palette of the Aether amplifier. The result is the Fane/Fryette A60S, a remarkably expressive and rich sounding Alnico speaker with matching Cream chassis and bell cover.
This is a point to point hand-wired amplifier designed to minimize component lead-lengths and wire usage. Naturally, Fryette utilize top-shelf components and construction materials to insure the quality and reliability of the overall design. Like all Fryette amplifiers, the output stage incorporates custom designed, precision-wound power and output transformers for maximum fidelity and reliability.
