Gibson Falcon 20 Tube Combo Amp (1/5/12 Watts, 1x12")

Directly tap into Gibson's rich amplifier legacy with the Falcon 20. This 12-watt amp boasts a pair of 6V6 power tubes with lush tremolo and spring reverb.

The Falcon 20 resurrects the Gibson amp icon and delivers "vintage tone, reimagined" in an upgraded rendering with valuable features and all the original magic intact, yet then some. Perfect tonal enhancements update the sound and feel, with a wider, more usable range on controls, while lush traditional spring Reverb adds dimension and broadens stylistic horizons. The original smooth sounding Tremolo adds further vibe while selectable output-power options further expand the versatility and venue application with options of Full, Half or Low power modes. These updates allow the Falcon to soar high above even the most prized vintage Gibson gems.

It stands apart from its predecessors due to Mesa/Boogie's 53-years of tube design experience and performance-pushing ideology. Players of all generations and musical genres will appreciate the Falcon 20's beyond-vintage tone, enhanced dynamics and well-behaved low end, while enjoying the added flexibility in stylistic-control and the width reverb adds to the soundscape. The three selectable power options allow fine tuning of the clip threshold and volume level while the Jensen Blackbird Alnico reproduces every ounce of this "vintage tone, reimagined" mojo perfectly, for the ultimate 12" Combo.

For those who demand touch sensitivity and dynamic nuance at the low to medium end of the gain spectrum and crave a classic "controlled implosion" at its farthest reaches, the cathodyne driver performs above and beyond expectations for a simple read more low-power amp. The Falcon 20 roams confidently between nest and venue and provides warm cleans to purring overdrive to a raging Rock implosion full of harmonic complexity, all from two simple volume and tone controls and all at manageable levels everyone can appreciate and use.

Built for Gibson, designed, toned and hand-built tough by Mesa/Boogie in Petaluma, California, this bona fide bird can't wait to elevate Gibson amplifiers to a stature they've always deserved, right alongside Gibson's finest stringed instruments.
