22 Jan Barnett Davies
Barnett Davies are a boutique amp builder based in East Sussex. They hand build amps and have the FIFTEEN THIRTY available:
“A new concept in guitar amps, the Barnett Davies FIFTEEN THIRTY is a lightweight and compact valve amp that is easily portable without compromising sound quality. In fact the FIFTEEN THIRTY sound quality is considered to be one of the highest on the market today.”
The FIFTEEN THIRTY has been designed with two separate channels – one clean and one overdrive which are actually SEPARATE channels, so that they can be combined to produce a third sound. The more usual arrangement is actually a single channel reconfigured for high gain, this involves complicated switching with relays etc. whereas the FIFTEEN THIRTY uses simple, silent earth switching.
