Introducing Artisan Series.

The Artisan Series of award-winning handwired guitar amps represents the absolute highest standard of craftsmanship and valve boutique tone. With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, every feature has been refined to provide you with the ultimate tone.

ABOVE ALL. TONE.

Each Artisan amplifier is designed to offer the widest range of classic vintage and boutique tones to the highest possible sonic standard. This is achieved by the design of electronic circuits that work in harmony with the finest components and materials available. All of the amplifiers are simple in their operation, and yet deceptively flexible in their functionality.

Every aspect of the construction and design is the culmination of over 35 years of experience in valve amplifier design, and gives you a purity of tone that only an amp built without compromise can deliver. In the words of Pat Travers after playing through an Artisan 100 – “At last, I can hear my $8,000 guitar!” The quality and attention to detail are evident throughout each amp, from the solder joints on each turret, to the ‘running wheat’ engraving design on the front panel.

Artisan amps are built to last a lifetime and effortlessly combine vintage style and rugged, road tested reliability. The point-to-point tag board construction, welded steel chassis and finger-jointed birch-ply cabinet are complemented by beautiful vintage red Tolex.

Artisan 100 Head Overview

The Artisan 100 takes the boutique 100W design to a whole new level of flexibility.

The Voice control is a timeline which chronicles the evolution of the genre from the earliest American designs through to British designs of the '60s and '70s. This is achieved by switching the preamplifier voicing and power amplifier damping simultaneously.

HANDWIRED

Each Artisan amplifier is designed to offer the widest range of classic vintage and boutique tones to the highest possible sonic standard. This is achieved by the design of electronics circuits that work in harmony with the finest components and materials available. All the designs are simple in their operation and yet deceptively flexible in their functionality.

4 WAY VOICE SWITCH

The traditional control layout is hugely enhanced by the addition of the unique Voice control. By altering both preamplifier and power amplifier characteristics, the 4-position Voice control will take the player on a journey through the evolution of classic guitar amplifier tone, from the earliest American designs through to the British amplifier invasion of the late '60s.

SWITCH 5W TRIODE MODE / 15W PENTODE MODE

In triode mode the tone is round and bluesy with a mellow top end for laid back soloing. The triode mode also has the benefit of producing more saturated distortion tones at lower output levels which makes this mode ideal for recording and practice. The pentode mode produces a more dynamic feel and is louder and more punchy than the triode mode.

CHANNEL BLENDING

The Artisan's topology allows the blending of the two channels. By paralleling the guitar connection to the inputs of Channel 1 and Channel 2 endless tonal variations can be explored. Use the hi input if you wish to achieve power amplifier break-up and overdrive. Use the lo input if you wish the amplifier to remain clean (this is especially useful if the guitar used has high output pick-ups).

IMPEDENCE SELECTOR

The control matches the amplifier's impedance to that of the connected speakers. Always ensure that the selected impedance matches that of the internal and/or external speaker cabinets. (if combo). The Artisan's (combo only) internal speaker is 16 Ohms, so when used by itself the Impedance Selector must be set to 16 Ohms. If an additional 16 Ohm speaker cabinet is used together with the internal speaker the Impedance Selector should be set to 8 Ohms. A speaker cabinet of less than 16 Ohms should not be used together with the internal speaker. (show diagram of the speakers possible)

WELDED STEEL CHASSIS

The Artisan range represents quality. This is reflected in the fact that the amplifier uses a welded steel chassis for strength and durability as well as overall quality.
