Dial in your tone.
For years, guitarists have used patch cables on their Bassman and JTM amplifiers to jumper their Normal and Bright input channels together. The Texas TONE™ 50 provides a Split/Jump switch to jumper the Normal and Lead channels internally. Plug into the Normal High input, select Jump, and the two channels are internally combined. Jumpering the two channels adds both fullness and complexity to your tone, giving you a nice, fat tone that breaks up easily. Select the desired volume level of each channel and rock out! Your Tone Matters!
The TEXAS TONE™ 50 is another 'inspired by' all-tube guitar amplifier, in this case inspired by the tweed Bassman, it's near-twin the JTM45, and the black-faced Pro, with some important changes.
I've replaced the Bright channel with a Lead channel, with changes to the gain and frequency response to allow for more drive and less mud. It's designed for rock leads and pedals, and the British rock sound.
The Presence control has been supplanted by a Voicing control that controls the drive and frequency response to the output section. This adds even more distortion, volume, and character to the amp's output. The output section is a refinement of those 1960s black panel amps, adding more bandwidth and more gain in the phase splitter.
The result is a loud, versatile combo amp with a two 12" high efficiency Eminence speakers - one American full range and one British bright - that can play clean or get great rock tone. As usual, the noise floor of the TEXAS TONE™ 50 is quite low, designed for, and resulting in, reduced hum and hiss.The TEXAS TONE™ 50 includes the features listed below:
All Texas Tone™ Amps are built with a discerning musician's care. Every component, every wire lead, every solder joint, is carefully selected, laid out, bent, and soldered to ensure long life, optimal tone, and low noise. To further reduce amp hum, I follow modern electrical engineering practice for proper grounding and noise reduction.
