3 inputs, fixed bias, volume and tone controls, single 10″ speaker. It is the amp that Steve Cropper used on all the classic Stax recordings. Every aspect of the original model is reproduced in the Ivy League; triple inputs, 6AT6 7 pin preamp tube, twin 6V6 power tubes and a single 10″ custom speaker. Like all Victorias, the Ivy League features all USA made components including resistors, capacitors, transformers, wire and hardware! (USA made vacuum tubes included when available.)
The Ivy League 5F10 is the quintessential recording amplifier, it’s crisp clean tones and thunderous overdrive helping to define the modern notion of “Tone”. The original 5F10′s most infamous contribution to modern culture is the classic “Memphis” guitar sound. It’s 2 “fixed bias” 6V6′s deliver 14 watts of push pull vacuum tube power that’s warm and resonant when caressed and harmonically explosive when pushed into clipping. The unique 6AT6 input tube circuit with it’s triple padded inputs are singular to this amplifier. All this conspires to make the Ivy League a studio friendly amp like no other, making this legendary time-tested performance available for guitarists everywhere for the first time in 50 years.
The Ivy League with his 1×10“ speaker does offer enough bass response for a balanced overall tweed tone. Very special are the 3 different inputs to offer a „power reduction“ but thats a wrong explanation – actually they fit the impedance of different guitars output to stay longer clean or not!
