BC AUDIO INTRODUCES 100 WATT OCTAL-PLEX SERIES GUITAR AMPS
Expanding line of custom British-influenced all-octal point-to-point amplifiers

San Francisco, November 3, 2016 -- Boutique guitar amp builder BC Audio (bcaudio.com) is expanding its critically acclaimed Octal-Plex Series – guitar amps based on 1960s British plexi circuits that have been adapted for octal (8-pin) preamp tubes and built with true point-to-point construction techniques – to include custom 100 watt versions. Each amp can be customized with a number of circuit variations and optional features.

“I’m very pleased with the Octal-Plex Series. It’s an amazing combination: the big sound of octal preamp tubes, the clarity of point-to-point wiring, and those simple, powerful plexi circuits,” says BC Audio founder and award-winning guitarist Bruce Clement. “The 100 watt amps now complete the plexi picture.”

Customers are invited to choose between JTM45/100-style or Superlead-style preamp circuits, in Lead or Bass Spec. Other circuit variations and mods are available, along with a menu of pre-configured options. Mr. Clement often works with individual customers to tailor the amp to their specific needs for a truly custom, handcrafted instrument.

  • 4x EL34 Output Section
