The perfect combination – your
digital modeling pre-amp + a PowerLite 50-10 guitar amp.
- If you already own a modeling pre-amp that gives you all the
guitar sounds you need, why buy a conventional, or digital modeling,
guitar amplifier, when you could use your pre-amp and a PowerLite
The PowerLite amp is a ‘back end’ power amp and loudspeaker
designed to be combined with the players choice of ‘front
end’, digital or analogue, modeling/emulating pre-amps.

handle, mounted over the centre of gravity
Power rating - Fitted with a 50 Watt R.M.S.

(The power amp is very clean and quiet. Emulation of ‘valve’
guitar amplifier tone is left entirely to the pre-amp used)

Drivers – Supplied fitted with a 10 inch
Eminence Legend 105A main driver and a CTS tweeter. OR as an option,
customers may choose and fit their own main driver and buy the
PowerLite kit at a lower price. Eminence drivers are used by many
of the top US guitar amp makers. Rather than use a ‘flat
response’ neutral, driver we have chosen to use a ‘musical
instrument’ speaker for its efficiency, fast transient response
and sympathetic colouration (loudspeakers make the best loudspeaker
Optional ‘Soundlight’ system –
Twin ‘power on’ lights, modulated by the audio signal.
