Jackson Ampworks NewCastle 30 Combo - 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 coverall 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.
