Stage or Studio, This Amp is Ready to Rock

Choose the 65amps Tupelo 20-watt amplifier head for a low-powered amp that's big on tone. Based on classic American amps from the late '50s and early '60s, the Tupelo amp head gives you classic tone without the problems inherent in vintage amps. The secret is in the custom transformer 65amps developed with Mercury Magnetics, which allows the full character of the 6V6 power tubes to shine through. It really is a do-it-all amp perfect for the studio or the stage. If iconic American tone is what your music is all about, then plug into the 65amps Tupelo guitar amplifier head.

  • 65amps: awesome amplifiers made by guitarists, for guitarists
Custom transformer enhances your tubes' performance

65amps worked with Mercury Magnetics to create a custom transformer for the Tupelo tube amp with the goal of making modern tubes sound more like vintage tubes. A nice benefit of this is that the tubes run more reliably and don't need to be replaced as often as other amps require. So the Tupelo gives you the sound of a classic late '50s/early '60s American amplifier with modern reliability and performance.

Master Voltage control lets you cut volume without killing tone

Thanks to the Tupelo's Master Voltage control, you can get the output volume you need without risking the tone or feel of your amp. As opposed to many in-amp voltage-reduction systems, which simply starve the power tubes, the Tupelo's Master Voltage control preserves the internal tube relationships while maintaining the proper filament voltage. This unique approach to voltage control lets you pull your output power all the way down to three watts without either jeopardizing your sound or dynamics, providing you with ideal note-for-note articulation at whatever volume you need.

65amps: awesome amplifiers made by guitarists, for guitarists

The founders of 65amps, Dan Boul and Peter Stroud, are a couple of accomplished guitarists who turned to their passion for guitar tone when they created amplifiers such as this Tupelo tube amp. Drawing from Stroud's extensive experience onstage with Sheryl Crow, 65amps came about as an attempt to create roadworthy guitar amplifiers capable of keeping stage volume low while providing the rich and complex sound of full-sized amps. Since hitting the scene in 2002, 65amps models including the Tupelo have made their way into the rigs of guitarists such as Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Peter Frampton, Vince Gill, and Keith Urban.

65amps Tupelo 20-watt Tube Amplifier Head Features:
  • 20-watt tube amp based on late '50s/early '60s American amplifiers
  • Custom transformer allows the full character of the dual 6V6 power tubes to be heard

The ideal american style amp

This is my favorite amp I've ever played. I was between this or a Princeton, and I'm glad I went with this. It breaks up early and cleans up immediately when you roll back.
