The Signature of a Legend!
What are some numbers that are closely related to heavy music? Other than the number of the beast, it’s probably this sequence of numbers: 51 and 50. Taking its name from the signature of the legendary guitarist, an inventor who has inspired the 5XXX signature guitar amplifier, delivers a very specific kind of guitar tone, dubbed as the “brown sound“. The amp has become a staple of metal sound. It’s on every album with crushing and distorted guitars, such as Machine Hea_d, Opeth, _Testament, Trivium, Gojira*, and so many others!
Powered by our 3rd generation tube engine, Kuassa recreates and tweaks all three major versions of the 5XXX amps to deliver the infamous brown sound that blasts like nothing else in your DAW, the Amplifikation VVV.
Type A, Mark I: Beautiful and rich clean channel, ideal for dreamy ballads or softer passage. Works great with PAF type pickups. Crazy good crunch channel and tight lead channel with 80s flavor.
Type B, Mark II: Thick and full midrange with tight low end that delivers the famous brown sound. Great for crunchy and dynamic rhythm tones. 70’s British tones are the first sound that comes to mind.
Type C, Mark III: Deep and aggressive with monstrous gain that will please all metalheads. On maximum gain, some will say that it’s out of control. A must for modern productions.
