  • hovercraftampsok, on to the specs: black grillecloth tolex, chrome corners, genuine #hiwatt feet and handle black/bronze faceplate handles, white/black mk2 faceplate mix of big n' medium silver faced knobs. the circuit is as follows: custom 4 position FAC I in the very front end of the amp that uses 2 of the hovercraft FAC settings, then bypassed for more mids/crunch, and a softer 'vintage' setting that rolls off a little bit of treble and gain to emulate 50's and 60's #tweedamp and tube rectified golden era preamps. the FAC II shapes the entire personality of the high gain ch2 and voices the amp for a middle vintage gain sort of like an ampeg VT22, then goes to a gained hiwatt style response, then a classic british upper midrange crunch voice and finally a deeper american modern gain low/midrange crunch with additional bottom end on tap. this amp has been lurking in the back of my head for months and months, and i got the crowbar out and made it happen. and i'm really glad that i did. get this one for $925+ shipping. currently wired for 120v operation, but can change for 230v no prob. if it doesnt sell by tomororow its going up on ebay.. email me info@hovercraftamps.com if you want to snag this very unique encyclopedia magna. the name is a melding of the matamp/orange brain trust that brought such wonderful sounding amps to the world.
  • bennyfourstringsThat tolex!
  • hovercraftamps@bennysixstrings yeah, its like hiwatt tolex, and marshall grillecloth had a baby.. i got only one roll of it, and its the only roll of it in the world.. i love stylistic mixes anyways, and when i found it i had to have it!
