Harmonic retention and ultra-low noise are the stand-out design feats with this one - allowing all of the good nuanced stuff that is lost on other amps to really come through in focus. The overdrive is soo thick and textured and the cleans are sweet and full even at lower volumes.
A huge range of tones are available with the silktone amp - “Chiffon” mode offers a variety of refined tones from it's TMB tone stack with wide-range Mid control. Cut the mids way back and you get a nice spongy American scooped tone – push the mids and your tone fattens up to the stylings of a bold & dynamic JTM. Push the volume to break up and get a harmonically complex & musical overdrive. “Raw Silk” mode bypasses the tone stack for a huge gain boost – you'll get an incredibly sweet and transparent sound at lower volumes showing off the nuances of your guitar and pedals – push the volume and you can get anything from raw crunch to thick fuzz-like distortion. All of this with a tube driven spring reverb that is as rich as it is versatile. With the combination of the 'Dwell' and 'Mix' controls you can get anything from a smooth & gentle echo to a huge drippy surf effect.
