After more than 3 decades Ernie Ball Music Man is proud to announce the reintroduction of their HD and RD series amplifiers. The new Music Man amps are faithful recreations of the most popular and coveted models from the golden era of amplifier design.
This reissue and upgrade of the Music Man amps line is being overseen by one of the world’s leading amp designers, Marco De Virgiliis of DV Mark and Markbass fame. Currently available models include the HD-130 head, the 412 GS cabinet, the RD-50 1x12 combo, and the 2x12 HD-130 combo.
At their core, Music Man amps feature a unique design that underpins the exceptional tones they are legendary for. The amps combine a solid state preamp with a power tube output section that’s loaded with 6L6 tubes. These tubes produce the big, warm, and round sound most guitarists are searching for. The benefits of this approach are more clean headroom on the clean channel combined with some of the best drive tones you’ll ever hear from a dirty channel.
Each of the 12 RD 50 combo’s two channels has independent volume, treble and bass controls. The amp’s solid state preamp includes a single ECC83 drive tube on Ch2, spring reverb, two 6L6 power tubes, and a single 12" neodymium speaker - a custom-designed speaker that has a classic feel and tonal response that makes the 112 RD 50 way lighter than you’d expect from a combo.
Power, dynamics, tone, versatility and reliability - minus the heavy carry!
