Overview

The FRENZEL  "Super Twin 800" design was "INSPIRED" by the classic  Fender 5F8A Twin and Marshall JCM800.....but it is not a clone and it  loaded with features that neither the original vintage amps had. This amp is pure audio dynamite!  


Standard Features

Input Jacks isolated from chassis for low noise, eddy currents, and hum.
 
DC on preamp and driver filaments for low noise and hum.
 
Star ground system to reduce induced current chassis noise.
 
Separate Gain, Tone Stack and Master  controls for each channel.

Channel 1  - Fender Twin smooth  warm clean tones. Channel 2 - Marshall JCM800 high overdrive  tones....or you can use an AB-Y switch and create your own distinct tones.
 
Classic 60's vintage Bass, Mid, Treble  3-BAND TONE STACKS for extended flexibility in shaping your tone....plus Bright capacitor on Gain Controls for extra sparkle!
 
MASTER  level controls so you can crank the GAIN's up and overdrive the preamps and drivers without overdriving the output tubes. 
 
Classic vintage style Presence control . 


EFFECTS LOOP - 
 pure tube buffered serial effects loop designed to perfectly match the low impedance solid-state pedal levels with high impedance tube levels.  

Unique NNFB "Edge" switch on the PRESENCE control that transforms the power amp section into a No-Negative-FeedBack style amp for more open, less compressed tones. 
  
Line Out - post output transformer LINE OUT with LINE OUT LEVEL control for recording or driving a power amp, Auto switched internal load to simulate speaker if speaker is  not plugged in. Inject great tone directly into the PA system with the Speaker Simulated Direct Interface. 
 
Class AB matched pair off high power 6L6GC's for the pure vintage sound reproduction.

EL34/6L6 Bias Selector Switch - Allows you to use either 6L6 or EL34 power output tubes.
 
Power Output -  50 watts (100 Watt upgrade available with 
Quad of high power 6L6GC's)

Power Level Selector Switch - provides three power levels. 1/4 - 1/2 - FULL power. 
 
Speaker Impedance Selector  4 - 8 - 16 ohms
 
Solid-State FRED ultra fast recovery rectifiers for tight dynamic bass response.
 
IEC PLUG-IN three prong grounded power cord.
 
STANDBY switch to turn off the high voltage during warm-up to protect the tubes.
 
Rock solid point-to-point hand wiring using only the best of parts...low noise tubular polypropylenes caps, metal film resistors, Micalex sockets, sNeutrik jacks...etc.
 
Sweet vintage clean to classic overdrive tones with three different types of distortion depending on whether you are overdriving the preamp, output... or both! 

Retro Vintage Cage - heavy duty steel mesh cage provides protection and excellent ventilation for tubes. Includes Fender style strap handle with nickel plated end caps.

Reviews


Hi Jim, - As many of your other customers' reviews on your site, I would like to let you know how great I think your amp is, now that I've had it for a while... I'm using the amp for just about any situation from folk, country,  jazz, to harder driving stuff, and it takes crazy effects well too...I run both dry(only) and wet(only) signals out of my delay into both channels, and the tone is VERY rich... running through a 2x12 w/ a JBL D-120, and a EVM12L produces amazing clarity and precision to my ear - while either of the speakers in a 1x12 show off what the amp can do... I am very happy that I went through with the purchase after a few years of hesitation... everything written about the amp in the description on your website is what I received, and it sounds better than I imagined...Thank you very much, for the amp, and your fabulous service... I must have another soon...Charlie H. (CANADA)
