Until today, guitarists could only choose between two types of amplifiers: heads and combos. Now, we are introducing a completely new breed: The Stomp-Head.
The Stomp-Head 5.CE is an extremely light and small but still powerful and great sounding guitar amplifier. The amplifier can be placed either on a stage floor just beside the effects, in a traditional way as a head amp, on the top of the speaker cabinet, or set up on an effect board. It features two foot switches that allow fast channel changes and muting the amp during the performance.
Additional input for external channel selector/controller
The Stomp-Head 5 is an ultra light, very compact floor amplifier with integrated foot-switch designed to be set on the pedal board along with effects or placed directly on the stage floor. It greatly benefits the player with immediate access to all amp’s potentiometers and options. When the amp is set on the pedal board only one wire (speaker wire) is needed to setup the guitar sound on stage. This amplifier can also be placed on a top of a cabinet like a regular head. In this case external footswitch must be connected.
The Stomp-Head’s 5 design is based on a MTD (Master Tube Design) technology. It is our own groundbreaking technology which permits us to create powerful guitar amplifiers in very compact shape. This technology uses all the significant features of tubes which determine the warm, classic sound of guitar amps. We offer players a fully analog amplifier with extremely light weight, very compact dimensions and powerful sound. The sound characteristics and power of amplifiers based on our MTD technology are equal to the classic tube amps with the same power rating.
The Stomp-Head 5 features three channels: CLEAN, CLASSIC LEAD and HIGH GAIN LEAD, which are accessible by footswitches built into the amp’s chassis or by an external controller.
Each channel represents different sound characteristics which give a great freedom in obtaining a desired sound’s texture of the instrument. The amp is designed to produce a wide arrey of different sounds. From a classic, clean jazzy sound throughout modern DRIVE, up to heavy saturated HIGH GAIN like distortion.
Other than a regular three point EQ (BASS, MIDDLE, TREBLE) each channel is equipped with MID/RANGE switches which are designed to change the range of the MIDDLE frequencies. This option is very useful in proper setting of the guitar’s sound in a bands overall mix depending on the style of music played and type of guitar used. Additionally the highest frequency range of the guitar can be altered by the BRIGHT/DARK switch.
Unit is equipped with power selector that allows to set 90Watt or 40Watt and it is designed to work with 4, 8, and 16 ohm cabinets (Power Amp will auto-adjust to speakers impedance)
Stomp-Head can be used also as a guitar preamp without connecting speaker cabinet. LINE OUT with a speaker cabinet simulation allows the connection of the amplifier to a mixer or an external power amp. LINE OUT signal simulates the sound of the CELESTION Vintage 30 cabinet. Device is also equipped with a serial effect loop.
