Product Description

Vintage late-1940s-early-1950s mellow sonic character and feel blended with modern clarity, articulation and headroom. The newest iteration of the SeQuel TRIBUTARY™ Series 2 now includes Bass and Treble EQ controls plus Reverb. Essentially a single speaker "mono" version of our TRIBUTE 12" + 8" model which we dedicated to Jim Hall. 
The original TRIBUTARY aka "one knob wonder" defined amp essentialism and sonic purity: a Volume Control. an On/Off switch. That's it. While many appreciated the direct connection between their guitar and the sound that eminates from the speaker, some archtop guitarists who only have a volume control on their instrument pined for EQ controls on the amp...but only enough to allow them to compensate for the sound of a particular room. Arguably a little out of true vintage character we also included our lush spring Reverb circuit to add a little extra dimension for laminate guitars.
And as long as we were tinkering, we gave the little amp-that-could a touch more power. The TRIBUTARY Series 2 is now conservatively rated at 28-watts. Two matched 6L6 power tubes in cathode bias configuration provide a soft vintage touch/response with solid low end while also allowing for easy yes-you-can-do-this-at-home or gig tube replacement ... without the need to visit your local repair technician for biasing. Turn it up all the way and with typical pickups fitted to an archtop, the TRIBUTARY will remain clean and play with "enough" volume.

Otherwise, the SeQuel TRIBUTARY remains what it's always been: it's about honesty and a beautiful harmonic balance with an archtop guitar. Audiophile grade components selected by careful personal audition. Much like finding just the right spruce or maple for a luthier, those components have made a world of difference in The TRIBUTARY.

Befitting the vintage sonic intent, we've housed the TRIBUTARY in a rich Mahogany-stained laminated birch cabinet marrying the visual partnership with a finely finished archtop. Strength/durability, beauty, ease of maintenance: a touch-up marker is all you need to erase a scratch. Why not tolex?  Well, would you use tolex on your guitar for the best sound?  Right.

The SeQuel TRIBUTARY Series 2 is a comprehensive package. It includes a high definition instrument cable [10 foot] and a custom cover. Shipping is also included within the Continental USA via FedEx Ground.
