” I was meeting up with Mac & Eli of Two-Rock fame right here at Namm. The best news is that original founder and designer Bill Krinard is back at Two Rock … the new line is in fact the original old line … models like the Classic Reverb and the original TS-1. both sounding bigger and better than ever! We also saw and heard some great new additions to the line like the ‘Burnside’, a compact, simple but HUGE sounding one channel, Fender style amp, which is actually named after the street where Bill Krinard lives! and of course the British sounding ‘Cardiff’. All of the amps are USA made with US parts and sounding better than ever before! I mean BIG TONE! and all are coming to Max Guitar! come and check them out!”
This 18 Watt Two-Rock version of the wide panel tweed circuit combines the dynamics and touch sensitivity of a vintage tweed amp with the modern clarity of a Two-Rock. The Burnside will instantly give you that classic vibe and feel with the comforts of new reliability. This amp features a pair of 6V6’s, GZ34 tube rectifier and a 12AY7 in V1. The front panel layout features a bright switch and a user friendly control layout with Gain, Treble, Bass and Presence controls. The Burnside has a passive effects loop and a vintage constructed paper layer-wound transformer which is a larger upgrade version featuring 4,8, and 16 ohm outputs. We have built these cabinets out on pine and finished the cabinet in a lacquered black tweed covering with the choice of oxblood or cane grill cloth, or a blond tolex with stripped oxblood grill cloth.
Cardiff combines classic British heritage with definitive Two-Rock performance to usher in a new era in Two-Rock’s lineage of professional hi-fi amplifiers. The first ever EL84 amp from Two-Rock, the single channel 15W Cardiff delivers minimal compression and a fuller/fatter midrange and stout low end. Cardiff lets you shape your own tone via easily accessible front-panel controls, including bass, treble, volume and Contour, which provides an active band sweep for maintaining individual preamp tone control settings. Cardiff is available as a head with matching 1×12 cabinet loaded with a Two-Rock 12-65B Speaker or as 1×12 Combo.
