The C-15 offers the same tonal characteristics of a C-30 at lower volume and in a more portable package. A long list of musician designed features includes: highly interactive tone controls and circuitries unique to each channel, bypassable master volume, individual channel effects loops, cut control for high frequency shaping, high and low (30 or 15 watt) power settings, selectable output impedance and phase inverter switches allow the use of additional speaker cabinets or amps in-phase with the DC-30.
The preamp sections are based on a layout of two 12AX7’s in Channel 1 and one EF86 in Channel 2. The two 12AX7’s in Channel 1 create a parallel-triode circuit with interactive bass and treble. The one EF86 in Channel 2 consists of a high-gain pentode coupled to a six-position rotary tone switch. Outright benefits include quick dial-in of new tones and an easy return to the settings you prefer. Also master volume works for both channels. The power amp is fed by a 12AX7 phase inverter, which drives four EL84 power tubes. Other professional features include an effects loop and a output impedance selector (4, 8, 16 ohms).
