The undisputed king of all stereo tube power amplifiers for guitar.
The Classic XXX master-built stereo power amplifier is Fryette Amplification’s 30th anniversary reissue of the venerable Classic Power Amp used by Steve Lukather, Steve Vai, Michael Landau, Dean DeLeo (STP) and Mick Mars (Motley Crue), just to name a few.
When first produced, there wasn’t a power amp on the market that could compete with the Classic, and there hasn’t been another one since. Like its namesake, the new Classic XXX is a 100-per-channel stereo guitar power amplifier that delivers unmatched clarity, and maximum stereo soundstage. To this day, Dean DeLeo is still touring with his original Classics, proving without a doubt that this amplifier was and still is designed to last decades with only nominal maintenance.
Tonally, the Classic XXX produces rich upper harmonic detail via eight Mullard EL34 power tubes, which are identical in performance to, and produced on the same equipment used to make the Eastern European manufactured RFT EL34s used in the original amps. Fryette used examples of these original tubes from their reference library to assure adherence to the original standard. Speaking of originality, the Classic XXX uses the same transformers as fitted in the original amplifier, produced by the same supplier to guarantee there will be no performance deviation between the original model and the XXX.
In Triode Mode, the Classic XXX delivers 60 effortless watts per channel into a 4, 8 or 16 ohm load. Using Triode Mode together with Half-Power Mode, allows for maximum low power amp saturation with a low fan speed setting, ideal for studio recording where silent fan operation is essential. No other power amplifier available offers as much harmonic balance, wide open-dynamic delivery and powerful bottom-end response.
For 30 years, Fryette power amplifiers have set the standard for sound quality, power and rugged reliability. The designs are straightforward and functional, the build quality is unmatched, and long-term roadworthiness is amply attested to by legions of touring bands that depend on them.
