First, I want to tell you about my new amp, the DB4. Brad Paisley and I have been working on this for over a year now. I received a call from Brad with a request. Brad asked for a rich and warm sounding British-voiced amp. It’s always fun to hear musical terms and translate them into electronics. I built the amp, tested it and sent him the first prototype. Brad not only loved it but refused to send it back. I had to rely on pictures and schematics to recreate a second prototype. This amp is the fourth collaboration between Brad and I, hence the name DB4. It will be available as a head, a new 1x12 “Classic-Lite” combo, and a new 2x12 “Bluesbreaker” combo.
The input of the amp uses a 5879 U.S. made pentode preamp tube. This was the tube selected by Les Paul to be used in his Gibson GA-40 Les Paul amp. The full-bodied silky tones of the 5879 are then driven into a rotatory frequency filter. This control selects between jangly brilliance to deep and full resonant tones and everything in between. To help fine adjust the hue of delivered frequency to the four EL84 output tubes is a cut control. Think of this as a tone control for your output tubes.
