British Style 20W Lead & Bass

  • 20 Watt

Much like the JTM50 “black flag”, the 20W “Lead and Bass” is an amplifier that many guitarists aren’t terribly familiar with.

Both tonally and in design, the 20W shares similarities to the 18W standard.  However, there is no tremolo circuit.  Instead, each channel is voiced slightly differently (hence “Lead” and “Bass”).  Moreover, the power section uses solid-state rectification, which increases the power output, adds headroom, and imparts a faster and more solid feel compared to the EZ81-equipped counterparts.

If you’re a fan of the 18W Normal channel, but would like more tonal variation and/or a firmer, more percussive attack…the 20W Lead and Bass is right up your alley.

As with our other modified 18Ws and 36Ws, this chassis is suitable for both head and combo formats.

Like other Ceriatone amps, we have labored carefully to select the finest components to suit the design, and the 36W uses our specially designed, custom transformers for superior reliability, frequency response, and feel.
