We're really excited about this new Gibson Falcon 5 1x10 Combo amp here at Humbucker Music! At first we really didn't know what to expect, but after spending some time with this little guy we're quite impressed. It's no secret that Gibson now owns Mesa Boogie, but instead of Gibson making changes at Mesa, they are having Mesa redesign their amps into astonishingly impressive tone machines. For the Falcon 5, they took the single-ended simplicity of a Class-A 6V6 driven circuit and incorporated many of the tonal improvements discovered by Mesa over the years.

The Falcon 5 features single-channel simplicity with a focus on great tone and ease of use. The ultra-simple, pure signal path design has controls consisting of Volume and Tone, plus the addition of Reverb – an uncommon but welcome feature on a tube amp in this compact size and wattage class, adds dimensionality and immensely increases the amp’s enjoyment and usefulness over a wide range of musical styles.

Players in the know have long understood that one of the secrets to great overdriven tone is power amp overdrive, and lower-powered amps are key to turning up and achieving that cranked power amp sound without overwhelming volume levels. The Gibson Falcon 5 1x10 Combo is ideal for those demanding touch-sensitive, nuanced response at the low end of the gain and power spectrum, with a harmonically rich blend of vintage power-amp overdrive when turned up. All this vintage-flavored magic is brought to life via the unique mid-enhanced voice from a 10" Jensen Blackbird Alnico speaker, which perfectly complements the volume range and single-ended Class A power section. The power section is enhanced with a built-in Power Attenuator, allowing players to choose between Full or Low power settings, providing even more ways to transition in and out of clip seamlessly and musically and making the Falcon 5 an ideal amp for intimate gigs, home practice, and recording purposes. With its modern refinements, high-end performance, and boutique construction, the Falcon 5 is a vintage amp dream delivered with a sturdy, consistent modern design ethos.
