We're pretty stoked
about the new Suhr Corso Recording Amplifier! It's a 5 watt head
designed to be used in the studio as well as the home, and with it's
unique bent wood design looks like something out of a 60's Eames
furniture catalog. That, my friend, is freakin' cool!
It's all tube circuitry utilizes two 12AX7s and a 12AU7 for the preamp
stage, and dual 12BH7 tubes for the power stage. As many of you
know, 5 watts of quality amplification can actually get loud, so Suhr
has included an on-board attenuator for those whisper quite sessions or
"bedroom level" jams.
The Corso also features considerable tonal flexibility for practically
every guitar player. From complex cleans to harmonically rich
overdrive, the Suhr Corso does it!
Need an amp that's pedal friendly? No worries here! The
Corso uses a low-gain preamp stage to accomodate your overdives,
distortions, etc with ease. This is important because some amps
without a log-gain pre will clip and distort (even ever so slightly)
and effect the original tone of the pedal being used.
Equipped with unique a Line Out (post power section), the Corso is
ready for the studio. The Corso’s Line Out offers the sound of the
entire amplifier, not just the pre-amp section, so you can fully
experience all of the Corso’s tone when you plug directly into your
digital recording I/O interface for your next session. Should
inspiration strike in the middle of the night, just turn the attenuator
control fully counterclockwise and play without disturbing the
neighbors, or your family.
