Cornell Vintage Brown
The all new amplifer from Cornell. The Vintage refers to the 1980's sound. Brown refers to the tone sort after by many guitar players of that generation.
It is common for modern amplifiers to incorporate several valve stages to achieve high gain. This tends to reduce the response, colour the tone and suppress the players natural technique.
By incorporating the guitars volume control as part of the amplifiers pre amp design this amp will deliver plenty of gain and still retain the guitars tone and feel.
It works by having more than the normal amount of gain in the first stages of amplification. With the guitar on full there will be pre amp distortion, while turning the guitar volume down will clean up the sound.

Like every Cornell amp, the Vintage Brown is built to exceptionally high standards, featuring a ply cabinet that's perfectly covered in black vinyl, with silver metal vent grilles and a grey speaker cloth complementing the Art Deco-inspired logo, which, like the control panel, is engraved Traffolyte for old-school appeal.
The hand-wired electronics live inside a chrome steel welded-corner chassis, with most of the small components sat on a custom-made board that uses a mixture of turrets and eyelets. (no pcb's are found within Cornell amps)
Valve bases, pots and rear-panel sockets are all the best parts that money can buy and hand-wired to a standard, with groups of wires carefully tied together.AC conductors are twisted and pushed into chassis corners to reduce hum. All combined this makes the Cornell Vintage Brown another superb amp from Denis Cornell
