Product Description

Butcher™ Guitar Amp Head

The Butcher is a two-channel amplifier with five 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 power amp tubes. Both the Clean and Crunch channels feature independent three-band EQ, plus master volume and preamp gain controls so guitarists can adjust the interplay between the preamp and power amp on each channel for an array of gain possibilities. Both channels include a separate, footswitchable gain boost, while the Crunch channel also has a 12-way Punch selector that adjusts the low-end attack of the amplifier -- a handy feature that helps match the head to various speaker enclosures.

The master section widens the range of possibilities with two footswitchable master volumes, so players can set one as a default and use the second as a solo boost; a patented Presence control that boosts the extreme high frequencies, giving the amp extra cut; and high and low gain inputs.

On the rear panel, the built-in Peavey MSDI microphone-simulated XLR direct interface eliminates the need for miking by allowing users to send the amp's signal directly to a recording device or mixing console. Additional controls include a line out with level control; active effects loop with send and return level control; impedance selector; half-power switch; and a tube bias adjustment jack.

This amp is beyond great!

What is your opinion of this product?

It is so good that I don't know where to start. First of all, it has everything basically that you need. You can record direct out, you can switch from 100 to 50 watts, you can boost each channel, you have a choice of two global volume levels and you get GREAT sounds. It sounds amazing. The clean and crunch channels sound very different but they overlap very well. It is a very dynamic amp that maintains good definition even at the highest gain with boost on. The effects send and return levels are very nice to have. I can run rack effects or pedals through the effects loop without hassle. I did not realize how useful this was until I got an amp that did not have this. The clean can have chime and it can be gained up to have some dirt and then boosted to get even thicker and just a little bit more. It is one of the nicest clean sounds that I have heard. The crunch channel also sounds amazing. You can get good classic rock tones along with heavier classic metal when boosted with the channel boost. The amp takes pedals very well. If you add an OD pedal then you can get even grittier and add a little bit of chunk. This amp is suited for just about every music genre except for super high gain stuff, if you want that then go with the 6505. I would definitely recommend this amp to anyone!
