Tribute amp to Danny Gatton.
"Then I played the Louis Electric Gattone, which is very reminiscent of an old V-front super, but with one Celestion 10" and one 10" Jensen. It was absolutely one of the most beautiful-sounding amps ever! Something about the total package - the V-front, cabinet construction, whatever - made it sing like almost nothing I've ever heard. Absolutely magnificent. I was floored." - The Gretsch Pages
Originally designed as a tribute to the legendary stylings of Danny Gatton, the Gattone is a great amplifier for many playing styles. Its cabinet construction contains no baffle board, which makes for a tighter bottom, even at louder volumes. The lush reverb and tremolo along with classic cosmetics make it ideal for many styles. The Gattone is an extremely versatile amp.
The Gattone, as you would expect, has a very present high end, honky and throaty midrange, and has a spanking low end. The Gattone has a good amount of headroom and consistently performs in any situation and is a very portable and gig-friendly amp. Your Teles, Gretschs, and Strats will love this amp. And don't forget your Les Paul.
The Gattone features custom power and output transformers, fixed bias system, 2 STR6L6 tubes, three 12AX7 preamp tubes, 1 12AT7, 5AR4 rectifier and 2 input jacks.
