BSCO Music Store about the 19: |
The 19 expresses the heart of Bakersfield - articulate, vibrant, and honest.
It is the perfect platform amp. One of the simplest yet versatile tube amps available. However, all that simplicity and versatility doesn't stop it from being one of the most unique and gritty tube circuits ever made.
Coming from a pedigree that created a pure and authentic country sound mixed with the rebellious nature of rock and roll, Bakersfield Sound Co worked tirelessly with the genius of custom amp builder Chris Siegmund to create an amp that could perfectly pay homage to Bakersfield's music history.
Using a single 6V6 and EL84M as its power tubes, the 19 has truly one of the most unique circuits in the boutique market. These unmatched power tubes running in class A create a wonderful asymmetrical clipping that literally sounds like two amps in one. With these power tubes working in tandem it's got all that American and British heart 'n soul in one amp.
Coupled with its custom cabinet loaded with a custom Tone Tubby 'Bakersfield' alnico speaker with hemp cone, the gigantic 3D wall of tone that comes out of this amp is unrivaled!
