The Tweed Recording Pro
10W to 1/10W of Perfect 50's Tweed Tone
The Tweed Recording Pro is the newest Tweed amp model for Carl's Custom Amps and it is as classic sounding as it is innovative. Countless recordings have been made with Tweed amps and they simply sound wonderful. Gritty warm and lively are all good adjectives for the sound. However even the smaller Tweed amps can be too loud for a small room or long tracking sessions. The Tweed Recording Pro solve this issue because it has variable wattage from 10W down to a whisper quiet 1/10W so you can have cranked Tweed tones at any volume. This all done very transparently with no change in tone. The Tweed Recording Pro to has ultra-low floor noise and has practically no hum or hiss making perfect for critical recording or pedal use. Adding to the tonal variety the amp can use any 6L6 type tube, a 5881s, or 6V6 as power tube so you can tailor the tone. The amp comes with 12" that speaker gives you wide dynamics, powerful overdrive, plenty of cleans and great fullness to the sound. It's simply amazing!
