WOOLY COATS - EXTRA CHIMEY

The EXTRA CHIMEY is based on our popular Extra Spanky model tube guitar amplifier – but with a vintage “AC” flavor! We started with our EF86 driven AC preamp from the 3rd Power Dual Citizen amplifier and paired it up with a cathode-follower tone stack featuring Treble/Middle/Bass tone controls. We then took a fresh approach to designing a new output section powered by EL84 tubes. We wanted to capture the flavor, complete with chime and mid-range growl, and yet maintain the stability and low noise our amps are known for and keep things running as cool as possible. Instead of the higher heat dissipation of running EL84s in Class A, we opted for a more stable and efficient Class AB output. This increases the headroom and operating efficiency AND lowers the heat dissipated by the tubes. This can also increase your tube’s lifespan – all good things! Once again, we went with a power supply anchored by Mercury Magnetics transformers. Also on board is our patented HybridMASTER™ technology so you know you’ll enjoy your tone at any volume that’s right for the room. We made sure to include our Dual Mode all-tube spring reverb (from our flagship DUAL CITIZEN model) featuring an Accutronics large pan reverb tank. The result is a stunner – huge AC amp tone that covers all the bases in a convenient package weighing less than 35 lbs!!

• 1W carbon film resistors for low noise, 1/2W carbon composition resistors for tone
• Long-tailed-pair phase inverter for greater headroom
• Power and Standby switches on the front panel
• Mallory and Orange Drop capacitors
• F&T power supply filter caps
• Choke filtered power supply
• Available as a head or 112 combo

Tube Rectification
For the ultimate experience in the “feel” department, we built the Extra Chimey power supply on a tube rectifier platform. This helps deliver that classic tube compression or vintage tube “sag” that everyone talks about with vintage tube combo amps.

HybridMASTER™ Volume Control
HybridMASTER™ and the Venue Switch are located on the front panel giving you the confidence to play what you feel when you feel it at exactly the volume you need for the occasion. Think of the Venue Switch as a “macro” volume adjustment – choose between full volume (Stage Mode) or an 70% volume reduction (Studio Mode) – and the HybridMASTER knob as a “micro” volume adjustment allowing you to fine tune your output levels. Our patented HybridMASTER is volume management executed to perfection.

THE AMAZING EXTRA CHIMEY

The EXTRA CHIMEY is based on our popular Extra Spanky model tube guitar amplifier – but with a vintage “AC” flavor! We started with our EF86 driven AC preamp from the 3rd Power Dual Citizen amplifier and paired that up with a quartet of EL84 output tubes. Once again, we went with all Mercury Magnetics transformers throughout. Also on board is our patented HybridMASTER™ technology so you know you’ll enjoy your tone at any volume that’s right for the room. We made sure to include our Dual Mode all-tube spring reverb (from our flagship DUAL CITIZEN model) featuring an Accutronics large pan reverb tank. The result is a stunner – huge AC amp tone that covers all the bases in a convenient package weighing less than 35 lbs!

Tube or Solid State Rectification
For the ultimate experience in the “feel” department, we built in two rectifier tube sockets that are controlled via toggle switch. Choose between various tube rectifiers or even a solid-state rectifier adapter and easily toggle between whichever you prefer.
