There is no better way to get the blues tone you hear recorded and performed live than with a tube amplifier. The warmth of tone and the natural overdrive available to you makes this amplifier the industry standard.

The tubes here process your sound and shape your guitar's tone directly. That's the short version of an electronic story that ends in tone utopia. A great tube amp generally costs a bit more, but the tone you get when using one is exponentially more.

Here we'll look at how I would set the amp to get great tone.
