May 2023 Update

    GRANOPHYRE REVISION 1.5:

    The Granophyre was first released in 2019 and has become a huge success, with many pro level players and studio producers/engineers using them live and in the studio.  Well, since we are always in pursuit of making everything better, we are releasing our Revision 1.5 of the Granophyre circuit.  Don't worry, this is the same ultra simple, hand wired design, using all of the same premium components and delivers the same OMEGA character.  But, we decided to add some spice to the recipe. 
    Sonic Changes:
    -Less unusable sub low frequencies that slowed transients down.
    -Tighter, bigger and more percussive bottom end.
    -More reactive and faster midrange
    -More midrange dimension (sounds like you can reach your hand into it)
    -Revised high frequency harmonics that make it more musical.

    REVISION 1.5 UPDATE MODS FOR THE GRANOPHYRE/IRIDIUM:

    We will be offering a mod service to all existing customers that would like to update their current Granophyre/Iridium (same amp, different name) to the latest Revision 1.5 specification.  We will be adding this service to our website in July, along with pricing, instructions on shipping the amp to us etc. 
    *This entails numerous component changes and must be done in house at our Detroit or Northern KY facilities only.  We will not offer info or schematics to third parties or other amplifier technicians.  We will be working on adding CA, AUS and EU mod facilities for international customers in the near future.

    REVISION 1.5 UPDATE MODS FOR THE OBSIDIAN:

    Obsidian owners, we want you to join the party as well, so we are also offering a mod service to update your amplifier to the latest Revision 1.5 specification.  Very similar overall sonic improvements as the Granophyre update!  Keep all the characters you love, while making it better in every way.  We will be adding this to our website in July, along with pricing, instructions on shipping the amp to us etc.

    POWER TUBES: 

    After extensive testing, critical listening, some Chipotle, and even more testing, we will now be using 6CA7 power tubes as standard in our amplifier range.  "What's a 6CA7?"  Well, the best/easiest way to describe this beam tetrode vacuum tube is that it is almost like a 6L6 plate structure was put inside EL34 glass, and made to run at the voltages/bias range of an EL34.  What this means for tone is that they have a big & tight low end similar to a 6L6, a thick and percussive EL34 like midrange (slightly more scooped than an EL34 though) and harmonic content more akin to KT (KT66, 77 and 88) style tubes.  A favorite of Eddie Van Halen's and many others, and sure to be a favorite of yours as well.
