Seymour Duncan changes the amp landscape with a power amp voiced and designed specifically for guitar players
SANTA BARBARA, CA June 29, 2017 – Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of guitar electronics, announces the PowerStage™ 700, the first power amp designed specifically for guitar players who create their tone with pedals, modelers and effects processors.
The PowerStage 700 is a stereo power amp that offers 700 watts of power per channel, a clean preamp section and precision 3-band global EQ. PowerStage 700 also features analog speaker emulation using our proprietary True Cab Circuitry (TCC)™, allowing you to go direct live, run your pedals straight into your DAW with full speaker simulation, use the stereo inputs for complex signal routing, re-amping and more.
“There has never really been a power amp designed and voiced specifically for guitarists using modelers and digital preamps. We created a solution that is powerful, portable and delivers the tone, feel and dynamics of playing through a real tube amp,” says Seymour Duncan SVP of Products & CRO, Max Gutnik. “A lot of players who use modelers want to use a real cab onstage so they turn their cab modeling off at the modeler, but they still want to go direct to front of house. Our True Cab Circuitry is an analog circuit designed to replicate a great 4x12 cabinet through a PA.”
Whether you use pedals, modelers or anything else to get your signature sound, the PowerStage 700 will let you amplify it in a clean platform. It can sit on top of your amp or fit in two-thirds of a single rack space. It can plug into any cabinet at any impedance anywhere in the world, thanks to its versatile 100v-240v power supply.
