Building on the original VINTAGE V22, which has become a modern classic and inspired combo amp design, the impressive and hand-built, 22-Watt, 2-Channel VINTAGE V22 INFINIUM exudes vintage tone and style, plus possesses modern features that will launch your sound into the sonic stratosphere. Loaded with 3 x 12AX7 preamp and 2 x EL84 power tubes, this incredible boutique-style powerhouse gives you the flexibility of two independent channels and selectable reverb, both switchable via the included heavy-duty footswitch. Add to this the revolutionary INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology and amazing 12" TURBOSOUND speaker, and the VINTAGE V22 INFINIUM becomes one extraordinarily versatile tone-machine that is ideally-suited for the studio, stage, practice room and concert hall!
Classic All-Tube Design
The VINTAGE V22 INFINIUM features true Class-A technology with a 3 x 12AX7 front-end and 2 x EL84 power stage. A masterfully crafted all-tube combo amplifier, the V22 INFINIUM provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up you’ve come to appreciate from those treasured vintage amplifiers of yesteryear.
The hand-selected 12AX7 preamp tubes in V22 INFINIUM’s classic ‘60s-era preamp provide everything from sweetly-purring blues to mind - blowing crunch. Often employed in British-style amplifiers, the EL84 output tube is known for its crisp and chiming tonal quality when pushed to the max, and the V22 INFINIUM harnesses every ounce of that power to awesome effect.
INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology
Years in the making, the INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology can extend the usable lifespan of your amplifier’s expensive power valves by up to 20 times, saving you huge money and ensuring the integrity of your tone. How? This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load.
INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new – even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM Series amps “4-wheel drive” for your guitar.
