Our SKYDOG is based on the 1950s Fender Tweed Champ 5-watt amplifier.
These amps were perfect for recording and were featured on a wide variety of recordings, from Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way” to Derek & the Dominoes’ “Layla.”
And it was exactly because of the Layla album that we named SKYDOG in honor of the sensational guitarist DUANNE ALLMAN who used a tweed Champ in the recording of this historic album together with ERIC CLAPTON.
It’s a Class A 6L6 circuit, this amplifier has a harmonically rich tone and a wonderful crunch at low volumes
We’ve Upgraded the Original Fender Tweed Deluxe!
We have added a Tone Potentiometer with a switch, that is, you can turn the tone pot off from the circuit if you wish and have an even richer sound in harmonics, a Skydog innovation!
Its tubes, a 6L6 power tube, a 6sl7 preamp and a 5Y3 rectifier tube, our oil-filled capacitors and its 12″ speaker make this little Tweed sound even better!
