SOLD OUT
This unit has been
discontinued and replaced by:
TRADEMARK 30

 

tm10


Single channel, 1x8, 10 watts.
We call this our Direct Recording Combo Amp. We should have called it Yoda, because there isn’t much this diminutive wizard can’t handle. The heart of the crafty Trademark 10 is a modified version of the super flexible SansAmp GT2 pedal design. Construct your tone by selecting amp character, gain structure and speaker type, and then use the drive controls and active three-band EQ to nail your sound. The 10-watt output is plenty loud for practice and monitoring but the balanced XLR and 1/4” outputs bring the big tones of this little combo to the studio mixer or PA system. Bedroom, rehearsal, studio or club, the Trademark 10 will prove it’s a giant amongst compact combos.
