This is head-only version of the Albion GS30 combo amps with 6 voices of both American and British valve (tube) sounds all in one great package.

It’s a compact, powerful, gigging workhorse. Here’s a personal summary from the noted ‘Ampguru’ and Albion designer Steve Grindrod about the Albion GS Valve Range of guitar amps: “The whole idea of GulfStream is very personal to me – as a guitarist I have always been known to favour small amps and my recording and stage rigs always featured a whole arsenal of sub-30 watt amps, and wanted to capture all those flavours into good looking packages. Basically all my favourite sounds in one box. My tonal influences were those that I have used over the years, ranging from Tweed & Blackface amps, VOX, and of course, Marshall, JTM45 and 50 watt Jubilee in particular. And of course to make it all work, a signature all of my own. After much thought and trials I ended up using 6V6 valves (tubes) for the output power, my favourite low power tube.”

It features a fully spec’d control layout with 6-voice options, selectable with the included footswitch. Gain, Volume, Wide range EQ circuit (Treble, Middle, Bass, Presence) Channel Volume, Frequency compensated Output Level control for full sounding low volume operation. Accutronics Digital Reverb from subtle to surf, wide ranging Grid bias modulating Tremolo (reverb & tremolo foot-switchable – footswitch is supplied), 8 and 16-ohm speaker output select. If you like a wide variety of easy to use CLASSIC clean and overdrive sounds in a great looking package that’s ideal for recording, club gigging, with enough power to keep up with all but the loudest bands… plug this head into your favorite cabinet and go for it!

3x12AX7 & 4x6V6GT. 4-way footswitch included.
