Suhr Badger 35 Head
with matching 1x12 Cab in Vintage Cream.
The new Suhr Badger 35 amplifier is a mid-wattage amp with a innovative
design that allows you to dial in many classic tones at any volume.
Sporting a quad EL84 power section the Badger 35 can acheive a wide
arry of British tones from warm complex cleans, vox-ish British bite,
and classic British high gain. And if volume is any concern of yours
then the Badger 35 can assist you there as well. With the power scaling
feature you can dial in the tones you want all the way down to one
POWER - Power Scaling emulates the tonal response of a high
wattage amp on 10, at manageable volumes. Power controls the voltage
that feeds the output section and in turn, the wattage. As you lower
the voltage of the power section you are reducing the amount of signal
it can handle before clipping the output section. To compensate for
this we use the "Drive" control so you can easily scale down to 4 watts
without losing tone & feel.
DRIVE - Feeds the input to the power section. With Power at 10
it acts as a master volume. As a rule of thumb, when you turn down the
Power always set the Drive control within 2 numbers of the Power
setting. If you set the drive lower than the power it will sound
brighter, like a "master volume" amp.
GAIN - Controls the amount of preamp gain by controlling 2
cascading gain stages simultaneously to drive the input stage.
TONE CONTROLS - Bass, Middle and Treble tone controls for each
channel are post-gain and passive cut-style. We recommend starting
around 5 and dialing to taste. As you increase Gain and/or Drive we
recommend dialing back the Bass to retain clarity and definition in the
