British Classic 150-Watt Tube Amplifier Head with INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier
We did a lot of listening to obscure, long-departed Brit designs, and spent the
better part of a year tweaking the hand- selected EL34s and ECC83s to give the 1960
INFINIUM its tremendous range of tonal options. We added a no- compromise post-
phase- inverter master volume that can be bypassed for direct signal path and a
huge output transformer with specially nested windings for increased dynamic response
and clarity. The onboard FX Loop (with true bypass) is ideal for use with external
FX, preamps or modeling processors, making the 1960 the go-to amplifier for massive
stage sound and unbridled versatility.
But the 1960 INFINIUM has one feature that distinguishes it from all other amps in its class the two channels come equipped with 2 input jacks each that be used in separate, parallel or cascading operation, bridging the tonal eras of the 60s, 70s and 80s. For example, you can experience classic rock sound by plugging into the upper left input, which puts CH1 + CH2 in parallel (same as using a patch cable between them), or use the upper right input for a vintage CH2 sound. The upper left and right inputs can also be used individually to bring two independent signals to CH1 and CH2. The lower jacks provide series (cascaded) operation for Classic Hi- Gain (CH1 + CH2). Individually, the lower right jack can be used for -6 dB gain, while the lower left jack provides normal high impedance gain.
INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology
Our revolutionary INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier technology is like having your very
own technician inside your amp constantly monitoring and tweaking tube performance
for the ultimate in tonal integrity and reliability. This revolutionary circuit
not only optimizes the performance of each output tube, it dynamically balances
the drive between them to more evenly distribute the load. With INFINIUM, your tubes
last up to 20 times longer, saving you substantial money over the lifespan of your
amplifier. INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting
current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as the day they were installed.
If and when a tube does reach the end of its life, the system even tells you which one to replace. All you need do is replace the faulty tube and let INFINIUM take care of the rest for you. This all adds up to more consistent sound quality and longer life for your tubes. Maintenance for tube amps has never been this easy!
