The Fat Jimmy Tone Box represents the evolution of the iconic Fender style class A single ended 6V6 6 watt circuits (think Tweed Champ and Tweed Princeton), but this is no Fender clone! Fat Jimmy started by combining their favorite features from two very different tweed Princeton circuits (5F2 and 5F2-A), voiced and tweaked to their liking, and then added some tasty Fat Jimmy features like the 'Jimmy' (NFB) control. After extensive A/B comparisons, they upgraded to a single custom Fat Jimmy C1025 10" speaker (instead of the traditional 8"). The result is an absolutely incredible low powered amplifier, unrivaled by any other in its class.
Three inputs give you three different gain options. You get the standard Fender style inputs (one hot, one not, inputs 2 & 3), and then an additional input (#1) that's even hotter! The natural overdrive capabilities of this amplifier are nothing short of remarkable.
The Fat Jimmy Tone Box is extremely touch sensitive and responsive, and embodies the definition of 'touch response' and 'note blossom' in an amplifier. The clean tones are big, bold, rich and beautiful. The overdrive is sweet and creamy with an almost 'chewy' texture.
The 'Jimmy' control is incredibly interactive, giving you bold, clean tones when turned down, and almost acting like an overdrive/gain control as you turn it up!
Loaded with rich harmonic overtones, smooth singing highs, and a tight, punchy bottom end, the Fat Jimmy Tone Box delivers everything you could ever want in a small 6w package and then some!.
