Jackson Ampworks Newcastle 30 Head / Cab - ANY COLOR!
Jackson Ampworks Custom Shop Orders
In order to offer so many different color options without the long lead times normally associated with custom built amps Humbucker Music has partnered with Jackson Ampworks in a unique and exciting way.
In anticipation of your order Jackson has already built and bench tested chassis for each of their models and have them at their shop in Keller, Texas. They have constructed the cabinet enclosures, however have they don't cover the enclosures until your order is placed. The moment we receive an order from you we will pass along the details to the techs at Jackson Ampworks and they will cover your amp in the tolex color of your choice and ship the amp directly to you from their shop. This normally takes right around 2 business days. We are super excited about this partnership. Not only does this offer you the opportunity to choose between a huge variety of color options, but it also guarantees that you are receiving the most factory fresh amp possible!
The NewCastle 30 is the latest rendition of this very popular amp. Brad Jackson designed this to cover all ground between classic British clean, and straight up rock and roll! The previous version the 18 watt Newcastle) was loved by many, but lacked that nice clean headroom we all need to have. The Newcastle 30 addressed this concern with four EL84's in the power section giving more volume before breakup. In fact, it remains clean until the volume hits about 2:00 on the dial, making it a formidable pedal platform for all you pedal junkies out there!
Now, what makes this amp quite special is the "Power" control on the front. It's actually more of a "Master Voltage" than a "Master Volume". What this means is it varies the high voltage being sent to the power section ranging from 30 Watts Class A down to 1/8th of a watt Class A.

About the 1x12 Dual Ported Cab
This 1x12 Dual Ported cabinet is truly impressive. That's all there is to it! Well, not really all there is... It was designed to be a small, lightweight cab that delivers solid bottom end out of a single speaker. It delivers hids and highs like a well designed open back cab, while emphasising lows that are smooth and punchy like a classic 4x12 cab.
The Jackson Ampworks line of Dual Ported Cabinets are a completely new Patent Pending design that features two ports that run vertically along the left and right side of the cabinet and allows the sound waves that come from the back of the speaker to be directed via precise baffles and shelves out the front of the cabinet. Months of research and development went into creating precise dimensions for the ports that ensure that the sound waves coming from the ports are in phase with the sound waves coming from the front of the speaker. These sound waves when aligned with each other work to augment and fatten the tone of the speaker!
In addition to the Dual Ported design, they have also engineered an internal diffuser that breaks up and disperses the piercing high end that is often found in closed back designs. This critically tuned diffuser also helps to direct the sound waves out the side ports of the cabinet and create more dispersion of sound with none of the "beaming" found in most closed back cabinets!
These cabs are constructed with 13-ply Baltic Birch and feature Dovetail joints for unparalleled strength, rigidity and tone. Also included is an all steel handle that is recessed into the cabinet for easier carry, a genuine Switchcraft jack for reliable operation and 12AWG speaker wire for unrestricted tone and performance.
