Inside the New York Amp Show
Bill Holter plays a Strat through Ark Amp’s Model A, featuring 60 watts through two
EL34 power tubes – with an unique mix of British and American flavors available at
the twist of a knob, these were quite possibly the most versatile amps of the day.
Featuring some intricate woodwork (talk about organic) that’ll be sure to stand out at
your next gig, the Model A starts at $4000.
The New York Amp Show had something for everybody, including the uniquely styled
Tupelo Honey from dAAb Amps. Featuring 30 watts produced by four EL84s and a
GZ34 rectifier, this amp provides a Class A-style sound with rich harmonics and gorgeous distortion. The company proved to passing amp nuts that you can have style
and substance in one package.
