NAMM 2017: JOYO AtomiC Bantamp Guitar Amp Head 20w Pre Amp Tube Hybrid
The AtomiC from Joyo’s BantamP series is a very compact and portable 20 Watt head that gives you the British clean sound – the one with hollow mids and a beautiful bell-like character. Its drive channel has a great mid gain sound and is just perfect for pop/rock sounds and indie rhythms with crystal clear cleans and cutting drive sounds. If you are a lover of the Voxy-like tones, then this is for you.
The amp operates with a single 12AX7 tube in the preamp and uses a solid-state power amp; an FX loop enables you to put your time-based effects (Phasers, Flangers and Choruses) behind the drive section and keep the effects sharp and not prevent them from being too muddy.
The CLEAN channel can take pedals really well, which makes it flexible and a great little companion for many situations where your “big” head is just not sensible. The amp has a speaker out rated at 8Ω, but can also be operated at 16Ω with less power.
The amp is small, but loud – its 20 Watts can be quite a handful. If you want to practice quietly, use the built in headphone out with speaker emulation.
Features BLUETOOTH connectivity. Easily connect with your BLUETOOTH enabled device and play music through the BantamP.
A 3.5mm out with cab emulation makes it perfect for taking to a gig and plugging it straight into the desk.
