Drumroll please… here comes Galaktopus! Our 2-channel guitar amp Galaktopus is the workhorse for those looking for a very versatile amp with the “wall of sound” and punch. With both 50W and 100W versions available, Galaktopus is your best choice for various styles of music from pop, funk and classic rock up to indie, alternative music, stoner rock and metal.

Depending on the type and size of the speaker cabinet that is connected, Galaktopus can deliver massive yet well-defined low end. Each channel contains a well-designed 3-band EQ section. The signal chain is globally completed by a bite control and reactivity circuit that allows the choice of three different bandwidth/compression settings. Like all our amplifiers, Galaktopus Guitar Amplifier has outstanding transient response.

The Clean channel is also a decent universal pedal platform, but both channels take upfront pedals very well. The all-tube buffered effects loop welcomes any kind of vintage or contemporary pedal seamlessly into the signal chain. The effects loop is made to carry your guitar signal through long distances, perfect for bigger venues. If desired, a foot-switchable 6db Boost provides gain and volume for your solo parts with added power amp overdrive.

Vintage sag or sweet tightness? The 50 Watts model has it both. Using the rectifier switch you will get that vintage voltage sag only a tube rectifier can produce, while the diode mode uses special silicon diodes for tight low and mid frequency response and sweet top end.

Our guitar amplifiers are engineered and made in Germany, built with selected components of highest quality. We are using a turret hybrid design for the main board that combines traditional, puristic and maintenance friendly construction for the main audio flow with modern integration of auxiliary circuitry like channel switching.
