Are you into that floydian psyche rock from the 70′ ? Well at Fxamps, we definitely are, and to honour its maestro guitarist, we offer you the DG-20, with that fantastic deep and ultra dynamic clean sound, heard on so many records. The DG-20 is also a superb pedals platform.
Starting with the gain dialed down, the DG-20 will give you warm and bright cleans, with a lot of headroom and dynamic. Plug a Stratocaster, add a touch of our Heartbeat modulated delay in tape mode, and let your diamond shine.
Dial up the gain for pleasant open crunches, perfect for any style of music, played with single coil or humbuckers.
Gain at max, the DG-20 produce a raw and dynamic lead, perfect for soloing with a vintage open sound, with a lot of definition. Super reactive to your playing and to the guitar volume pot, you can still dial back to a nice clean without even touching the amplifier.
Big tubes = big sound!
The DG-20, as well as all our amplifiers, uses the same big sized tubes as your favorite vintage stacks. It gives better sounding amps, even a low volumes, with a nice amount of bass, and more than enough punch.
True dynamic technology
The DG-20 introduce the new True dynamic technology. So now your Fx amplifier not only provide fantastic sounds even at very low levels, but you’ll also get the true feeling of a pushed 100w stack.
Super touch sensitive, very reactive to your playing, just like the original.
The DG-20 is designed to play at any level, even at very low level at night. It also has a 20w/2w for the most quiet conditions. Our famous master volume is also super progressive, so you can set the volume precisely.
No Bias System
Change your tubes yourself, at home, no equipment needed. Freely choose between 6L6 and EL34 power tubes, you can even mix a 6L6 and an EL34.
Point to point construction
Like all other Fx amplifiers, the DG-20 is entirely hand wired, with lot of care, using point to point techniques, and only selected high quality components and part. An amplifier that will not let you down.

If you’re looking, like me, for the tone of David Gilmour/Division Bell era, it’s the amp you need.
Perfect amp with several useful switches to shape your tone.
With a few effect pedals you are David Gilmour !
I have a second hand custom built amp by FX Amps which was actually the one that led to this DG20. The first owner which clearly was a pink floyd fan had it named “which one is pink?” 🙂
It’s a great amp, clean and takes pedals really well. You can get it to crunch quite well with the gain knob. The master volume works really well even at low volume and there is the 2W/20W switch which seems to work nicely too.
I say “seems” because I actually never heard the amp through a real cab. I used to play it through a two notes captor, and now through a UAD OX Amp Top Box (with a creamback virtual cab as recommended on FX’s website) and it’s great!
The bright & deep switch really do change the sound, it can get almost vox like (to my ears) with the bright engaged. Medium & High knobs react as expected, bass i have to keep quite low (I never go above 2) otherwise the sound is too bassy for my taste.
I really love that amp, it’s become my main one and even my bandmate’s one when tracking songs. I never had the chance to play an actual hiwatt, but this DG20 sounds like what I would expect from one. Great for Floyd stuff but not only, I recommended it!
