BRITISH CHIME, CRUNCH AND HIGH GAIN
Two Switchable Tone Stacks, Foot-switchable Gain, Tube Buffered Loop and more!
Plugging into a Plexi cranked to "10” and hitting a chord is like kicking down a door and nothing but splintered wood remains. That kind of tone an energy fueled guitar heroes like Hendrix, Page, Angus, Halen and Slash and we’ve been hooked ever since. The Dirty Sink is designed for that huge Plexi tone and energy loaded into a compact head or grab-n-go 112 combo. As artists sought to better replicate their recorded tones, studio effects devices become integrated into their live rig. One way this was done was via "slaving” one amp into another with an FX processor inserted into the path. The DIRTY SINK makes easy work of accomplishing the same thing by way of our all tube Class-A pedal friendly FX loop. And of course, our award-winning Hybrid-Master volume circuitry is on board so you can have the ultimate Plexi tones at any volume that’s right for the room – even if that’s in the home when more than a whisper might get you in trouble!
The JTM45 debuted in ’65 bringing the punch and sustain of a certain American style bass amp but with a decidedly British angst. One circuit common to both was the tone stack featuring a 56k ohm slope resistor and a 250pf treble capacitor. This made for a sweeter tone with emphasis on the melody strings.
The JMP amplifiers debuted around late ’67 bringing with it a distinctive mid-range frequency slice, increased sustain and of course, more power. One design tweak made a huge impact: a 33k ohm slope resistor and a 470pf treble capacitor. This increased overall gain, slice and punch… mission accomplished.
The ‘Jose’ mod isn’t actually one particular mod but a number of circuit tweaks that players were having done to their Plexis back in the day. One thing is for sure, players wanted MORE GAIN and DISTORTION and some of Jose’s mods, cascading preamp tube stages and clipping diodes sure made a lot of people happy! This feature is foot switchable on the Dirty Sink.
