Single Channel Tone - Soldano Preamp
The Jet City 20H is a single channel valve amplifier that is ideal for grab and go sessions, where you can quickly plug in and get a great tone with organic valve response and saturation. This amp is perfect for rock and blues players, or for those who like to craft their tone through their pickup and control settings, along with additional effects pedals. With its accessible price-point, the Jet City 20H is the perfect amp for budget conscience players with high tonal demands. The Soldano-designed preamp gives players highly-affordable access to a professional and versatile overdrive tone. Push a booster into the front-end and you'll take the amp's tone over the edge - creating a huge sound with great sustain and saturation.
Real Valve Tone
The Jet City is driven by 12AX7 preamp valves for a mid-focussed British-style tone which will cut through the mix. The EL84 power amp valves provide a nuanced response with great touch-sensitivity. The 20 watts of power is a great balance - enough to be heard over a band with real tube saturation at manageable volume levels, yet also ideal for recording, letting you get cranked tones at a sensible volume.
Single Channel Simplicity
With a single channel, the 20H is a simple-to-use amplifier reminiscent of classic designs. This is the perfect platform for pedals, letting you shape your tone with both the preamp drive and your own overdrive pedals/boosts. The Soldano designed preamp circuit is versatile and gives a wide range of gain levels with a very musical response. A 3-band EQ with presence control allows you to fully sculpt your tone to match your guitar and desired sound.
The 20H features multiple speaker outputs, ready to integrate with both single and multiple cabinets. With options between 8 ohms and 16 ohms for use with a wide variety of powerful speaker cabinets.
