Wonderland Overdrive v2




With the success of selling the Wonderland amplifier, we wanted to incorporate it’s beautiful clean channel into a channel switching amp that had overdrive on board. With careful design to add overdrive without losing the magic of the bold cleans, we took the Wonderland to the next level, the Wonderland Overdrive. We are now buidling the second version of the Wonderland Overdrive, “v2”.

The Wonderland Overdrive has the same clean channel voicing as the Wonderland, but with a big, thick overdrive layer added for an aggressive second channel. The overdrive is chunky, mid heavy, and really gives up the goods when pushed. The amp is really a swiss army knife of sounds, with it’s three EQ boosts (bright, mid, and deep), two-tube reverb, preamp boost on both channels and a footswitch to toggle the channels and operate the boost. This amp is truly a masterpiece. This amp is very flexible voicing that shines with both single coils or humbuckers.

Wonderland and Dirty Wonderland



The Wonderland has been our most popular amplifier. This single channel design was inspired from a limited edition amplifier built in 2008. We had the pleasure of spending 4 weeks with that amp, and reverse engineered the circuit and created our own version.

The Wonderland has big, sparkly clean tones, similar to a Blackface Super Reverb with a more midrange. The amp stays mostly clean, but will break up at higher levels of gain or the master volume. It has three EQ boosts (bright, mid, and deep) allowing the player to quickly select frequency boosts for different guitars or different overall sounds. When pushed with the mid boost on, you can get a sweet blues crunch with higher output pickups, and even some controlled feedback while remaining “clean”.

The Wonderland has a big, open, airy sound that is uncompressed, while staying tight and bold. It’s incredibly lush three-tube reverb makes the beautiful clean tones even better. The reverb is dialed in with two controls on the front panel, ‘send’ and ‘return’ – which act as reverb depth and level adjustments. Because of its abundance of clean headroom, the Wonderland makes a great pedal platform.

The Dirty Wonderland adds two “Dirty” switches on the back, that when engaged, give the amp more attitude and earlier breakup. We have also added a “preamp boost” toggle located on the front of the amp. The Dirty Wonderland can be ordered with a footswitch for the boost, and also for mid boost. When the Dirty switches and boost switch are not engaged, the Dirty Wonderland is stock Wonderland circuit.

Steel String Sultan



The Steel String Sultan is a lower wattage (and physically smaller) version of our Steel String Singer. The preamp is exactly the same, but we took out the FET and the footswitch options to pack this powerhouse into a 19″ chassis! This is a very strong, punchy amp, that is crisp and clean, just like it’s bigger 150w version. The 6L6 power section gives a bit of a more ‘guitar amp’ feel, while still capturing some of the hi-fi qualities of the big SSS. King Zapata of the Gary Clark Jr band plays one of our 6550 75w Sultans, and has taken on world tour.

The power section of the Steel String Sultan has the cathode follower that really kicks your clean tones up a notch! When compared to the Wonderland, the Sultan (and most SSS) will be crisper, cleaner, and less forgiving. The SSS in nature is a great blues amp (think SRV), but works very well for pedals, and fusion/rock sounds as well.

We can also do this in 50w, 75w (6550), or 100w with half power.

Specifications:
  • 6L6 or 6550 power section
  • Three-tube reverb
  • High and Low 6-position EQ Filters
  • Half power optional
  • Passive Effects loop
  • Choice of Tolex or Suede cabinet
  • 21.5 W x 12 T x 10 D
  • 46lbs (at 100w)
Pricing:
  • 50w solid state rectified $2899
  • 100w solid state rectified $3099

Steel String Singer



The Amplified Nation “SSS” is modeled after Steel String Singer #005, originally built for Eric Johnson and now owned by Carlos Santana. This version of the SSS is 4 x 6550 150w, and the power section is articulate, punchy, and stays clean to some of the highest levels of volume we’ve ever heard. The amp has three-tube reverb, a cathode follower driver, send and return reverb controls, bright and deep boosts, and also a rock/jazz EQ switch.

The Steel String Singer has a punch like you wouldn’t believe. The bass is tight and defined, with soaring “clean-lead” tones. While most guitar amps that are known for “sustain” when using the overdrive channel, the SSS sustain is extraordinary, and can flip notes into feedback without overdrive. It is a remarkable experience to play one of these amps. The tones are very hi-fi and three-dimensional and the clean tones that the SSS provides are unmatched. Preamp boost and FET (additional gain stage) are built into the amp.

Specifications:
  • 150w 4×6550 power section
  • Single channel with FET or normal input, footswitchable, with levels for both inputs
  • Three-tube reverb
  • High and Low 6-position EQ Filters
  • Half power
  • Passive Effects loop
  • Choice of Tolex or Suede cabinet
  • Footswitch for FET, Preamp Boost, and Reverb-off
  • Size: 28.5 W x 12.5 T x 11.5 D
  • Weight: 65lbs
