Our Mephisto is truly a new concept in amplifier design. It’s not a channel switching amplifier, but rather, Parallel Amplifier Switching with two independent amplifiers found within one artful design.

Two vintage voiced Class-A amplifiers are at the heart of the Mephisto. One is a 50’s American 6V6 and the other is styled after a pentode preamp based British EL84 and offers a total of 20 watts. You can easily switch between each amp or, and this is where the Mephisto’s shaping comes in, mix and blend them together for a huge range of unheard tones. And in combination with the switchable power attenuator you have a total of 5 sounds on tap via the foot controller.

Your guitar input is shared and then splits into the two independent amplifiers with their own individual pre amp, phase inverter and power amp. The two amplifiers then merge, after their power tubes, into one output transformer and speaker output.

Features include:

shared low and high gain input
British amp: volume, 6 pos. rotary body control and 3 pos. bright switch
American amp: volume, tone control and 2 pos. mid notch switch
shared adjustable power attenuator

foot-switchable:
between both amplifiers
parallel mix mode
power attenuator

Offered with unique aesthetics as a head or 1×12 open back combo.
