The Bruno Underground 30 is one of the most coveted guitar amps in the world. It is an incredible sounding amp that has received rave reviews and awards from top musicians and guitar publications. This is an amp that must be heard and only then can you understand how an amp from a small boutique company could inspire such extraordinary endorsements. The Underground 30 was the solid winner in Guitar Player Magazine's Feb. 97 shootout of 23 boutique guitar amps. It was also awarded Guitar Player Magazine's highly coveted The Year's best Gear award for 1997 in their Nov. 97 issue. Guitar World Magazine loved the Underground 30 and wrote an excellent review in their June 1995 issue.
The Bruno Underground 30 is being hailed as the very best -The world's finest sounding class A EL84 amp.
The Underground 30 is a truly remarkable amplifier with superb clean and distortion voices mated with a vast tonal range, incredible dynamics and rich complexity. Its beautiful clean voice has a silky chime that is deep, spacious and sensuous. The tone is really something very special. Crank it up and the Underground 30 sings with magnificent tone mixed with exquisite upper-end sparkle, complexity and infinite sustain. It sounds equally fabulous with either humbuckers or single coil pickups, layering sounds with lush harmonics while retaining excellent touch sensitivity and note articulation (An almost impossible accomplishment in amplifier design that has taken Tony a lifetime to achieve).
The Underground 30 features 36 watts of class A power from 4-EL84s, 3-12AX7s, and a GZ34 tube rectifier. The cabinet is constructed of solid pine for its sweet brightness and then fine tuned with a birch ply baffle for superb resonance. Finger-jointed construction is used just like the finest furniture which provides a very strong, extremely rigid, rattle free cabinet that will last a lifetime. Other features include premium tolex coverings, padded handles, heavy duty feet, stainless steel screws/bolts and chromed steel corners. Standard finish is black with an Art Deco style control panel and aged Ivory "chicken head" knobs. Optional custom colors, two tone colors and select hand finished solid hardwood cabinets by custom order - call or email for the price of these options.
