The Epiphone Limited Edition Electar Century 12 guitar amplifier harks back to an earlier time - 1939 to be exact - with this unadulterated celebration of classic vintage style and tone, in honour of their 75th Anniversary.
The cabinet is an utterly flawless replica of the classic 1930s era design hand-built using laminated maple with bent rims, an all-metal handle, 6-point star screws and a vintage grille cloth. Don't let the demure cabinet fool you though as this little brute packs more than enough power to knock your socks off!
The Electar Century 12 is an all-tube, class A/B dynamo with 2 x 6V6 valves in the pre-amp section and 2 x 12AX7 valves in the post-amp section. In short, this beauty can produce 18 watts of full on fat tones that will make your heart sing! The 12" speaker delivers your tone with absolute clarity, so much so that you'll never want to stop playing with it.
Tonal control is all at your fingertips with a Master Volume, Master Tone control. The Master Volume control has a pull "boost" mode for extra bite. Not only that but there are 3 inputs at your disposal - Bright, Normal and Dark; with Bright offering shimmering tones that are perfect for country and jazz players; Normal delivers a mid range punch that is excellent for blues; Dark delivers a grittier sound for those looking to push the tubes that bit further.
So not only do you have three tonal options, easy tone control, an all-tube class A/B 18 watt amplifier all neatly packaged in a gorgeous vintage cabinet, there is even an extension speaker output to hook it up to a larger speaker cabinet and a footswitch jack for quick changes on the fly.
As you can see the Epiphone Electar Century 12 guitar amp is not an expensive toy or simply a pretty package. It is a highly versatile, incredibly powerful guitar amplifier that sounds amazing, is gig-ready and just happens to look absolutely gorgeous.
