The Blackhawk

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the simple amplifiers, where the player can explore

the full-range of tones on offer with ease and without complication.


The Blackhawk, featuring a two-band EQ, Pre-amp and Master Volumes, and a Cut control, offers just that. Plug into the single input and fill the room or stage with glorious, full-bodied singing British tone that can be shaped and sculptured to work with your guitar and FX pedals


The Blackhawk features a 36-watt 4xEL84 power section inspired by the British Invasion sound of the 60s, a specifically tuned master volume circuit to produce rich, harmonic overdrive at any volume level, working alongside a unique ‘Cut’ control to help shape Post-PI treble frequencies.

The Blackhawk is available as a 1x12 combo or head/cab configuration and loaded with a WGS Blackhawk Alnico speaker, a conveniently named driver offering pristine top end, tight mids, and just the right amount of warmth and bottom end.

 A GZ34 rectifier tube designed to offer responsive, dynamic response and hand-wired eyelet board construction assembled in Brackley, UK utilising custom-wound
transformers and hand-selected, premium components
