This simple circuit uses the reliable pentode input tube stage, controlled by a simple yet effective volume and tone circuit with a mini switch to give you the choice of a lean or thick low end. The result is a more dynamic response with a consistent, gradual ramp up in volume and distortion unlike, for example, the classic Tweed Deluxe, which won't get much louder after noon on the volume dial! And thanks to the ultra effective master volume circuit we use, you will enjoy a gradual ramp up in output volume.
Note, this amp is not high gain so if you want to get singing sustaining distortion at bedroom levels with the master volume turned down low you will need a distortion pedal to achive that. The master volume was included in this circuit for the purpose of reducing volume when full volume is too loud.
The gradual increase in distortion as you dial the volume up gives you a LOT of range to set just the right level to use with your dirt boxes. Whether you want to start with squeaky clean, slightly hairy, all the way up to full out crunch, you can effortlessly find just that right spot. And if you're an old school type who likes to crank the amp all the way up and ride the guitar volume, the Club Master won't disappoint. As with all Nolatone designs, number one priority is, it MUST sound and feel great on plugging a guitar straight in!
