Introduced in the late 1970’s, this guitar amp was the collaboration of Bob Moog and Dan Pearce (who later founded Pearce Amplification®). Their goal was to make a solid state guitar amp that had all the sweet overtones of a classic tube amp. For its time, the guitar amp was considered quite pricey and although some major artists liked it, the great sounding guitar amp faded away in the marketplace. The cabinet with speakers definitely evokes that classic twin design, although in the original impulse response capture session I found this cabinet a bit darker sounding than most classic 2X12 guitar cabs, but some amp adjustments and some bass roll off will still let you cut through the mix. In the subsequent ir capture session after there had been a maintenance issue found with the speaker wire, the amp is much brighter sounding. As a result you get really two cabinets for the price of one with this impulse response guitar cab pack.
