"There ain't nothing else like 'em!"
Tx-Watt Amps was the conceived and founded by Jack Kay from Buda / Dripping Springs, Texas (just southwest of Austin).
Build them one at a time. They are hand wired, point-to-point, with no extra circuitry. They have one input jack, EL34 or 6L6 tubes, custom Tx-Watt-only transformers, custom Tx-Watt-only speakers, and solid pine custom cabinets. If you’re covering all the bases, you’ll want contiguous pine.
Circuitry? The guitar signal is either on a piece of circuitry, or it’s inside a tube. Our amps have both British and American circuitry built in parallel, so you can mix and match the British/American sub circuits at will. We also have a 4-position switch to toggle between gain circuitry. All told, it provides 48 discreet, hand wired, point to point, straight through, circuit combinations to build the tone stack. Once you choose the circuitry then you have the familiar bass, mid, treble, pre-amp, main amp, and presence controls. We don't emulate old analog sounds , we recreate British and American style tone stacks. With nothing to restrict the signal, we go from lows you only feel to highs you only sense. My analog design expert calls it “angel’s breath” highs. If you have ever played an old Vox, you’ll know what I’m talking about. (NOTE: There is one non-analog part. For those who think rectifier tubes cause the sound to “sag,” we have a solid state, by-passable, rectifier circuit.) Any and every notion is taken into account. Whether fact, urban legend, or just perceived MOJO, we skip nothing.
Outside the Amps:
Tx-Watt Amps are all about fun. The knobs all go to 11, we only use prime numbers. (OK 9 isn’t prime but it gets a pass because of the Beatles). We offer 60 different kinds of vinyl and can even do exotic coverings like fox, mink, cow hide, and snake skin along with nearly as many kinds of grill cloth, handles, and feet. And we don’t sell our amps without a flight case to protect it.
Light Refreshments will be available.
