Watchtower Guitars is very excited to be working with Amplified Nation and we will be stocking all of the models for our customer's to explore. Right now we have in stock this killer 75 Watt Steel String Sultan with black chassis wrapped in dogwood suede & Vox cloth. These amps can be requested with almost any color suede or tolex now. We also have several colors in stock and can switch around headshells for immediate delivery.
I've played a lot of Dumble inspired amps but I knew right away when I plugged into the SSS that this is a serious musical instrument. I really want potential clients to pick up the phone and give me a call and we can chat about how we can match you up with your dream amp. If you're serious about your tone and think you amplifier is as important or more important than the guitar in your hands give me a call at 845-249-9948. These amps are the real deal and I promise you won't be disappointed. Sincerely, Wasyl
From Amplified Nation:
The Steel String Sultan is a lower wattage and physically smaller version of our Steel String Singer. The preamp is still based off of SSS #005, but the power amp has 6L6 tubes which lends it's tones closer to SSS #002. We took out the FET and the footswitch to pack this powerhouse into a 19″ chassis. The Sultan is a very strong, punchy amp that is crisp and clean. The 6L6 power section gives a bit of a more ‘guitar amp’ feel, while still capturing many of the hi-fi qualities of the big SSS.
The power section of the Steel String Sultan has a cathode follower driver that greatly increases output and gives the signature SSS tone. When compared to the Wonderland series, the Sultan is crisper, stiffer, cleaner, and less forgiving with a very percussive high output. The SSSultan works very well for pedals,blues, rock, and fusion sounds.
The amp is built into a bare aluminum chassis with faceplates, so more colors are available. All machining and drilling is done by CNC, but all wiring is done by hand. High end components include Orange Drop and NTE capacitors, F&T Electrolytics, new production Dale, Vishay, and Koa resistors.
King Zapata of the Gary Clark Jr band played one of our Steel String Sultans on his 2016 world tour. Many people have considered this amp to be one of the best they have ever played.
