Magnatone Varsity Reverb Combo
The best gigging amp just got better with added superb tube driven long spring reverb, and hey - honestly - if it's good enough for Jeff Beck it's good enough for you and me !!
The Magnatone Varsity reverb is the smallest and most simple combo in Magnatones Traditional Series, but make no mistake; this small powerhouse is extremely touch sensitive and has all of the magic american Magnatone sound in a simplistic classic combo design.
The Magnatone Varsity Reverb will be your perfect companion for gigging, in the studio or just for our own enjoyment at home.
The Magnatone Varsity Reverb amplifier was developed with input from Larry Cragg, Neil Youngs guitar tech through 36 years, to make sure that the amp sounds, reacts and feels just right.
Construction wise the amplifier is all hand-wired and all point to point. Magnatone uses the best components available like Magnetic Components Transformers and Switchcraft jacks and switches,
The Varsity reverb preamp section contains dual 12AX7 tubes, while the poweramp section is powered by EL84 tubes in a push-pull class A power amplifier design, rectified by a GZ34 tube, producing 15 very loud Watts with a bright and lively, classic american sound, choke full of character, color and harmonics.
