This amp was inspired by one of my guitar heros, Mark Knopfler, and one of my amp building heros, Trainwreck. It started as an idea about building a low powered amp with a similar character of a Trainwreck. As with any good amp, things always start to take on their own shape and tone. I set out to make a 2 el84 22 watt amp, but wanted to add a half power triode setup. The sultan changes modes from about 22 watts in full power mode, to about 10 watts in half power mode. The Sultan, as with all of my amps, is amazingly touch sensitive and dynamic. It can go from clean, to totally wild, from the guitars volume, and from your playing technique.
The Sultan uses a custom special wound output transformer, and is available in 120V, 220V, and 240V configuration. 3 12ax7,s 2 el84, 2 6v6, and a GZ34 rectifier.
