GERMINO CLASSIC 45
The Germino Classic 45™ uses a Bass circuit as all early JTM era amplifiers. Early plexi tone control values are used consisting of a 56K slope resistor and 270pf capacitor. Filtering is low and combined with the high primary impedance of the R/S output transformer give the amp a softer feel compared to the later EL-34 JTM-50 and JMP-50 Bass models. Power transformer is selectable for 120v, 220v, 230v and 240 operation. This power tranny features connections with solder tabs as the originals for period correct looks. Output is selectable for 4/8/16 ohm operation.
GERMINO CLASSIC 45 LV
The Classic 45™ faithfully replicates the tone of an original JTM-45, only better! This amp is a delight to play being as at home doing "Beano" era Clapton as it is replicating AC/DC to early ZZ Top. The Classic 45™ goes from an amazing clean tone to the best crunchy overdriven sounds imaginable. Excellent bottom end, incredible frequency response and exceptional 3D balance are all there to enjoy.
GERMINO CLASSIC 45 The Amp House Special Edition.
The Club 40™ is the defining early sound of the
JMP-50 watt Bass heads with a circuit voiced for full frequency response like
the larger Super Bass models. Output transformer is a Drake replica of the
784-139 specifically designed for EL-34's Plate voltage is 425vdc with ss
rectifier. Power transformer is externally selectable for 120v, 200v, 220/230v
and 240/250v operation.
The Club 40™ moves from big beautiful clean
tones to bold crunch effortlessly and excels with either single coils or
humbuckers. This amp is very responsive to volume control adjustments from the
guitar and gives the user extreme flexibility running the amp with or without
pedals. An array of early tones that go from incredible cleans to the
definition of British crunch are all there. Pushed, the Club 40™ gives great
response and singing single note lines. The perfect amp for a semi
clean/slightly distorted tones with single coil or humbucking pickups. The Club
40™ covers a wide range of late 60's and early 70’s classic rock sounds when
paired with either a 2 X 12 or 4 X 12 cabinet.
GERMINO LEAD 55
The Lead 55LV model uses a dual EL-34 output section and "lead" circuit values. This is the Lead circuit used in original 68-69 JMP-50 1987 models. Great crunch and upper midrange are there to cut through the mix in a sweet way that only a plexi can. Single notes are warm with great harmonics. The Lead 55LV model is delivered stock with optional tube/ss rectifier switching. Filtering is period correct for 68/69 JMP-50 specs.
GERMINO MONTEREY 100
Based on the original "Super Amplifier" from the 1966 time period also known as the JTM-45/100. Original examples of these early amps are getting harder and harder to find, and prices keep escalating. The Germino Monterey 100 "Super Amplifier" is a faithful re-creation of the JTM-45/100 in every way with extreme attention to detail in build quality and components. The sound is unmistakably vintage with it's huge full sound evoking memories of Fresh Cream, early Hendix and early AC/DC.
GERMINO FILLMORE 100
Lets roll back in time to 1967. It's early in that year that Marshall made the switch from KT-66 tubes to EL-34's with new transformers for this tube type. These are the second series Drake transformers made. 1203-80 power, 1202-119 output with no 4 ohm tap and 1202-132 with a tap for 4 ohms. Unique to these new models was a reverse typeset JTM lettering on the front panel which is affectionately know today as "Black Flag". Later models would simply say JTM-100. Unique was a dual bridge rectifier being fed from two individual high voltage AC secondary windings of the power transformer. All of these early amps used a Bass circuit derived from the JTM-45. Steel chassis made their debut in early in 67 as well.
GERMINO HEADROOM 100
Slightly over 40 years ago the sound of modern rock-n-roll took a significant step forward with the introduction of the ?Super Lead? 100 watt amplifiers.
The Germino Headroom 100 specifically emulates the sound and construction of the very early 68 100 watt plexi panel Super Lead and Super Bass amplifiers to exact detail! From the very first glance of the zinc plated steel chassis and plexi panels to the perforated tag board assembly the workmanship and attention to detail is simply stunning. The early Super Lead's from 68 were the first to use a circuit specifically voiced for lead guitar with split cathode pre-amp, specific values in the tone section and output stage as well as a brite cap for an automatic brightening of the amp at low volume. The Germino Headroom 100 is available with either a Super Lead circuit for the ultimate in singing sustain or, Super Bass circuit values for those wanting a cleaner amp with a more rounded tone.
GERMINO 2x12 CABINET
All Germino cabinets are made from Baltic Birch ply with finger jointed corners for strength. Baffles and back panels are made of Baltic Birch as well. Stainless steel hardware is used throughout in assembly. Grille cloth is original style basketweave that is salt and pepper in color. This is obtained from the original supplier in the UK that Marshall used in the late 60's and early 70's.
