Do you want the famous plexi sound, but at manageable levels ? The Gold digger is the one for you. Raw and powerful sound, nice clean and warm crunches.
At lower gain settings, you’ll get the loose and thumping typical hendrix sounds, with just a little bit of breakup. Warm and bright at the same time, ideal with a stratocaster in neck or intermediate position. Add a little bit of delay with modulation, for example with our fantastic sounding Heartbeat delay.
Medium gain settings are in the like of early AC/DC sounds. Little bit tighter and punchier in the bass, but keeping open highs. Slightly aggressive vintage sounding crunches, perfect with a vintage SG or LesPaul guitar, super reactive to your playing and volume pot changes.
Higher gain settings opens to new territories. Think of vintage hard rock sounds. More controlled bass, creamy mediums and an overall aggressive sound. Use it with vintage hot humbuckers for typical hard 80′ sounds and more. If you need even more gain, use our widely acclaimed bi-boost, it will do wonders with the Gold Digger.
Big tubes = big sound!
The Gold Digger, 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
