The Harp Train 10 was inspired by a desire to offer a true harp amp for the masses, an affordable amplifier that is voiced for harp and provides the gritty, compressed tone harp player's love. At the heart of the amplifier is the BALLS circuit, a truly unique circuit not found in any other amplifier. This circuit replaces a traditional tone circuit, providing a boost to the bass and lower midrange frequencies. The increase in this frequency spectrum allows for the balancing of frequencies within the spectrum of the harmonica; you can have the bottom fatness you desire without limiting your tonal range.
The first stage of the 12AX7 preamp tube drives the BALLS circuit and the second stage drives the 6L6 power tube set to 10 watts. The power section drives the proprietary 10-inch speaker with a 20-ounce magnet and a 1 ½-inch voice coil. This speaker is loud and produces serious vintage tone. Probably the loudest small amp on the market, the Harp Train 10 also features a LINE OUT jack to run the amp through a PA.
The rectifier is solid state, which reduces heat and improves the amplifier's response over a vacuum tube rectifier. The preamp and power tubes are Ruby (optional upgrade tubes are JJ) and are included in the warranty. This amp does not have an oversized output transformer like other harp amps. Why you may ask? Take a look at any vintage amp, and you will see an output transformer designed for the load and not overdesigned. The output transformer is a critical component to the tone the amp produces, and our transformer is selected to optimize vintage tone. Controls are simple, LOUDNESS and BALLS, or you could say volume and bass boost.
Although this is a small and inexpensive amplifier, do not think for a minute this amp is just for beginners. The tone produced by the Harp Train 10 is studio quality; and using the LINE OUT feature into a PA, you can play any venue. The Harp Train 10 is not an amp you will outgrow. This amp is affordable enough to buy two, and by using The Terminator to split the signal, you can produce stereo sound on stage and double your projected sound.
Truly a unique harp amp, it provides a punchy, fat, vintage tone while being the most affordable harp-specific amplifier on the market. The Harp Train 10 is also backed by the best warranty on the market, covering parts and labor for 1 year. In addition to our industry-leading warranty, you also receive a 14-day 100%-satisfaction guarantee. This amp is designed by Randy Landry of Lone Wolf Blues Co and made in China. We could have produced another hand-wired boutique amp or a hybrid; i.e., have had it built in China and assembled in the US, but that would have defeated one of my primary goals: To offer an affordable harp amp for everyone, and we at Lone Wolf Blues Co are passing the savings on to you, our customer.
The amp weighs 22 lb and measures 10" Deep, 15" Wide and 15" Tall.
