Epiphone EPA-CN12 LTD Inspired by 1939 Century Amplifier
The Epiphone '1939' Century Amp is an Epiphone classic that's been redesigned for the 21st century! It's 18-watts, all-valve, has a 12" speaker and revives an Art Deco era masterpiece from Epiphone's Manhattan days. This is a faithful replica of the classic '30s era cabinet design including its bent rims, surprisingly modern looking - but vintage correct - all-metal handle, 6-point star screws, and vintage style grill cloth but with newly designed all-tube electronics. The Century amp has three uniquely voiced inputs and an internal bias adjustment for further tone control.
In the late 30s, Epiphone was already blazing a trail for what founder 'Epi' Stathopoulo saw as the future of the electric guitar. And now in the 21st century, the "1939" Century Amp returns with a modern all-valve amp design with a powerful, full-toned 12" Electar speaker in a compact, easy-to-carry, iconic, cabinet and is powered by two 6V6 and two 12AX7 tubes. In a nod to modernity the Century also has a Master Volume with push/pull "Boost" mode for higher gain.
The three distinct inputs are Bright, Normal, and Dark, to maximise the tone potential of any guitar. An Internal Bias Adjustment further allows a user to make fine adjustments to the output of the 6V6 tubes. And there's an Extension Speaker Output too, so you can use the Century's all-tube electronics to drive a bigger, or smaller, cab for extra tone and volume options.
With an optional foot switch you can even control for the Master Volume's "Boost" mode.
