Special Order

A Modern Tube Amp with Old-school Soul

Classic tube tone that is consistent and reliable - that's the 65amps Producer 84 head. When 65amps set about designing a guitar amp around the venerable EL84 tube, they weren't about to simply copy vintage circuits, which were designed around tubes that could take considerably more voltage than today's tubes can. Instead, they came up with their own innovative high-current/low-voltage circuitry that sounds fabulous while being gentle on your tubes. If 28 watts and four distinctive voices that nail essential British tones and behaviors is what you're after, then take it from Sweetwater: the 65amps Producer 84 is your amp.

65amps Producer 84 Features at a Glance:
  • The alluring sound of EL84s
  • Innovative amp design gives you amazing tone and reliability
  • 65amps: by guitarists, for guitarists
The alluring sound of EL84s

Along with the EL34, the EL84 tube powered the British Invasion. This narrow, tall, 9-pin output tube (valve, in the parlance of our cousins across the pond) is often used in Class A circuits, which favor sweet, harmonic saturation over output efficiency. Hence its inclusion in many classic amps in the 15-30-watt range. With its characteristic warm bottom and chimey, sparkling highs, the EL84 exhibits a midrange that gets crunchy and aggressive when you push it. Yummy.

Innovative amp design gives you amazing tone and reliability

The Producer 84 runs its quartet of EL84s in a very safe (and innovative) way. With assistance from their transformer makers, Mercury Magnetics, 65amps developed a unique transformer and circuitry that produces incredible tone. A byproduct of this high-current/low-voltage design is that your tubes last for an extremely long time. In addition to eliminating costly re-tubing, this novel approach delivers both the tasty classic cleans and the scrumptious distortion range for which the EL84 is famous.

65amps: by guitarists, for guitarists

65amps' Dan Boul and Peter Stroud are guitarists first and amp design engineers second. Peter also happens to be Sheryl Crow's guitarist. Now, like many savvy performers these days, Sheryl prefers to keep her stage volumes low. Low stage volumes equate to cleaner house and monitor mixes - and ultimately result in better performances. It was the need for a robust and roadworthy low-powered guitar amp that sounds as rich and complex as larger tube amps that led to the formation of 65amps. With the luxury of looking back on more than a half-century of guitar amp designs, Peter and Dan were able to identify strengths and weaknesses, and come up with innovative, modern designs that deliver tasty vintage tone, modern reliability, and enhanced usability.

65amps Producer 84 Features at a Glance:
  • 28 watts of vintage-flavored, EL84-fired tone
  • 4 x EL84 output tubes and 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes
  • Features an effects loop, a footswitch input jack, dual speaker outs, and an 8-/16-ohm impedance switch
  • High-grade aluminum chassis; finger-jointed baltic birch cabinet
  • Quality parts, including SoZo capacitors and Allen-Bradley Carbon Comp resistors
  • Designed and built in Los Angeles, California
  • Footswitch included
The 65amps Producer 84 gives you classic EL84 tone that is both consistent and reliable!
