The SeQuel SKōTER is inspired by the wonderful classic sound of an 1950s-era archtop guitar plugged into a like period vintage jazz tube amplifier. Built in partnership with Sound Island Music.
Envisioned from the outset as an essentials only gig-worthy practical amplifier for all manner of [mostly] Jazz guitarists, the SKōTER is a diminutive 1×10 combo tube amp, weighing only about 24-pounds [10.5 kilos], pushing around 28+ watts into a very guitar-like set of controls: Power Switch, Volume, Tone. That’s it.
Less wire in the electronics translates directly as more of the rich, actual sound of the guitar through the amp. And interestingly, louder too because less signal is lost in translation.
It’s also very practical: All the tubes can be replaced at home or gig by the owner/guitarist without the need to visit a tech to re-bias the power tubes. This is a cathode biased amp equipped with 2x 5881 power tubes and a 12AT7 / EF86 on the other side.
Admittedly we conceived the SKōTER as a warm-mostly clean Jazz amplifier that could get a little “hair” on the note or chord when pushed a bit hard…just like those classic late 1950s recordings. Yet if you’re a modern player or work in genres where you need to access modulation and distortion, the SKōTER is your friend. Takes to pedals like a charm and saturates ever so smoothly.
Lifetime warranty with certain components exceptions such as tubes. (Customer pays for shipping).
