Little Walter™ Tube Amps 2013 - All Rights Reserved.
A pedal steel player needs to be at half pedal when the band is at full cry... That was the driving force behind the development of this amplifier chassis. This amp was created to give the steel player enough raw horsepower to get the job done no matter how loud the stage is... It also had to be Clean, articulate, and have the dynamic response to allow the player to show his or her particular style.
The 100 watt "Paul Franklin Signature 89" has a 12AX7 preamp tube, a 12AX7 mid-amp tube and a 12AX7 phase inverter tube and 4 - 6L6's power tubes. Power rectification is handled by a GZ34.
This amp has 4 input jacks: 2 on the Bright Channel and 2 for the normal channel (the top jacks are regular and the bottom jack is padded for extra hot pickups or active pickups). These channels can also be bridged to fatten and achieve a hotter output. You can plug into the bright channel (top jack) and then jumper from the bottom jack of the bright to the top jack of the normal. You can then adjust the two volumes to achieve the output you desire.
The Tone Stack for the "89" has: Bright Volume, Normal Volume, High Cut, Mid Cut, Bass Cut, and the most responsive presence control you have ever heard. The presence can sweep from dark to very bright and is perfect for compensating for bright or dark rooms.
This amp is known for its extreme clean tone and headroom with great dynamic response.
This amp is on tour with Paul Franklin (Vince Gill), Bruce Bouton (Garth Brooks), Dan Galysh (Mo Pitney) and Jamie Lennon (Easton Corbin) not to mention all the other bands using an "89" today.
"These amps are perfect from the studio to the large concert stages. These amps have unparalleled tone
