The Artisan 15 draws on the influence of the two most revered low wattage guitar combos in guitar amplifier history. In keeping with its classic design, this amplifier is deceptively simple in operation and yet highly flexible in functionality and tone. Equipped with 12" Celestion G12M 'Greenback' speaker, the Artisan 15 delivers an assertive character, with a familiar woody tone and punch.
Featuring two channels and two different modes, players can have more flexibility and achieve a variety of tones. In triode mode, players can achieve a round, bluesy tone with a mellow top end, perfect for laid back soloing. The triode mode also delivers more saturated distortion tones at lower output levels, which makes it ideal for recording and home practice. The Pentode mode offers a more dynamic feel, and is slightly louder, and punchier than the Triode mode.
The Artisan 15 is built to last a lifetime and effortlessly combines vintage style and rugged, road tested reliability. The point-to-point tag board construction, welded steel chassis and finger-jointed birch-ply cabinet are complemented by beautiful vintage red Tolex and etched aluminium panels.
The Artisan Series of handwired amplifiers represents the absolute highest standard of craftsmanship and boutique tone. With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, every feature has been refined to provide the artist with the widest range of reference vintage tones. This is achieved by the design of electronic circuitry that works in harmony with the finest components and materials available.
