Soho


Description:

Designed to be a super-functional amp for working players and enthusiasts who desire widely varied tones in one amp. The SoHo can transition seamlessly from the best of American tones to the sweetest British tones via the “Bump” function and NOT switching channels. The Bump will radically shift the tone-stack functionality achieving astonishing renditions of dozens of excellent, natural sounds. In addition to the “Bump” function, there is a defeatable Master Volume that is revolutionary in that is slopes the tone stack as you turn the Master down, giving the Master a very natural sound and ultra-low volumes. The Master can be turned on for “Home” mode and completely defeated for “Gig” mode. This amp is a must for studio players, small club gigs and enthusiasts who need to play at reduced volumes. Widely adopted by studio players, sidemen, and producers as a "go-to" amp for recording and gigging. Upon release, the SoHo went on a dozen major tours and is widely used on major-label recordings on a regular basis. Two versions were available: a 20 Watt version and a "high power" (HP) 35 Watt version. Indtroduced in 2007.
