JOYO BanTamP Atomic Tube Amp 20 watt
Wall of Sound
The AtomiC from Joyo’s BantamP series is a very compact and portable 20 Watt head.
There are few amps that have remained almost unchanged throughout the years. We immediately think of some American classics, but one amplifier stands out. There is this amp that gives you the British clean sound, the one that has hollow mids and a beautiful bell like character. This amp delivers a brilliant bite and has shaped the history of rock music through the ages. Its drive channel has a great mid gain sound and is just perfect for pop/rock sounds and indie rhythms. The Atomic brings all of that history into your living room in a very compact way. You’ll be amazed by the crystal clear cleans and the cutting drive sounds.
The amp has a speaker out rated at 8Ω, but can also be operated at 16Ω with less power.Careful, the amp is small, but loud… its 20 Watts can be quite a handful. If you want to practice quietly, use the built in headphone out with speaker emulation.The icing on the cake is the BLUETOOTH connectivity. Easily connect with your BLUETOOTH enabled device and play music through the BantamP. This is great to practice with PlayAlongs or to learn songs.
2 Channels Bluetooth Headphone Out FX Loop 8 Ohm Out
The amp operates with a single 12AX7 tube in the preamp
and uses a solid state power amp.
The FX loop enables you to put your time based effects
(or Phasers, Flangers and Choruses) behind the drive section
and keep the effects sharp and not prevent them from being too
muddy. Because of the High Gain structure of this amp, a noise
gate, like our “Gate of Kahn“ is a good idea to make your heavy
chords nice and tight.
The amp also has a CLEAN channel that can take pedals really
well, which makes it flexible and a great little companion for
many situation where your „big“ head is just not sensible.
The amp has a speaker out rated at 8Ω. (It can also be operated at 16Ω)
