This amp was Inspired by and developed with the help of Gary Smith, the Godfather of South Bay Blues. Gary produced the instructional DVD "Amped Blues Harp Demystified," the seminal work on the topic. The preamp is Octal 6SL7 with 2x 6V6 power and cathode bias for that true Chicago vintage tone. 15 watts with Weber hand-made alnico speaker. Our great sounding Tru-Tone Line Out circuit is included. 230V power circuit is extra cost. Some very distant destinations are extra shipping cost. Up to four weeks lead time.
Delta V6 amp
The Delta V6 is a custom, vintage-style hand-built blues harmonica amplifier from Stage 5 Amps, designed for mid-level to pro players. The finished Delta V6 amp is supplied with a Weber hand-made speaker and two 6V6 power tubes. There are two models: The flagship "Godfather" amp and the Delta V6 "Club" amp. Both our Delta V6 amps include our Tru-Tone Line Out circuit so you can connect directly to a PA mixer.
How the two models sound:
The Delta V6 "Godfather" amp has warmer vintage sound of the classic late 40's / early 50's amps and a lovely fat breakup in the mid-bass area, It nails the early Chicago sound. The octal 6SL7 preamp and cathode bias drive 15 watts into an alnico Weber speaker.
The Delta V6 "Club" amp has a more aggressive sound of the late 50's / early 60's amps with lots of crunch and color when you lean into it. .It is punchier, more present, and slightly louder with the 12AY7 preamp and fixed bias driving 18 watts into the ceramic Weber speaker
