Tons of Punch and Soul From this Low-wattage Amp!A rock masterpiece! The Budda Superdrive 18 gives you 18 watts of complex tonal tube mayhem — ready to go from punchy rhythm tones to creamy blues tones to full-on metal crunch. That's why acts like the Foo Fighters, Stone Sour, and Robert Randolph rely on Superdrive Series II amps. With the Superdrive 18, you've got stacks of touch-sensitive sustain at low-volume settings, so it's perfect for studio work and for your small club gigs. But remember: 18 Budda watts rivals 50-watt amps, so you can still melt faces with your Superdrive 18.
Budda Superdrive 18 1 x 12", 18-watt Combo Guitar Amplifier at a Glance:
World-famous Superdrive Series II amplifier
The Superdrive Series II amplifier line is handcrafted in the US and is the new voice of Rock! These amps have shaped the sound of many of today's platinum rock records. From artists like the Foo Fighters, Buckcherry, Good Charlotte, Stone Sour, Robert Randolph, The Exies, and Matchbox 20, the Superdrive delivers a unique tone that's both powerful and bold.
Two channels give you a mad range of tones
The Superdrive 18's rhythm channel packs plenty of punch and dynamics, just like Budda's famous Twinmaster circuit. The power tube saturation of the EL84 and 5u4 rectifier tubes offers an aggressive touch-sensitive elasticity to your tone that's pure organic soul. Then, on the hi gain channel, you've got a complex overdrive, taking you from creamy blues tones to full-on metal crunch. Plus, the master doesn't choke the amp, so you get plenty of touch-sensitive sustain at low volume settings. And the perfect gigging musician companion, the Superdrive 18 lets you dial in just the right amount of gain and volume for studio work and small club venues.
