The Ceriatone TW series represents our take on yet another famous, rare amplifier line from the United States.
The Ceriatone Expression is heavily inspired by the dual EL34 model, and is considered by many to be the ultimate rock lead amplifier. It’s clear the tone was influenced heavily by the great British amplifiers of the late ‘60s, but is far more refined and harmonically complex. Worth noting is this amplifier’s unique ability to obtain both chimey, jangly clean tones and searing high gain just by using those funny controls on your guitar (who knew they were good for something?). Compared to the Liverpull, we feel this design excels particularly with humbuckers.
Part of the brilliance in the design is in its simplicity and no-compromises approach to component placement, lead dress, and trying to maintain as unaltered a signal path as possible. We have kept this approach, but allowed flexibility by offering two different output transformer primary impedances for slightly different feel and harmonic content, as well as two different power transformer secondaries for different plate voltages, again further tuning the feel to your preference.
Like other Ceriatone amps, we have labored carefully to select the finest components to suit the design, and the Expression uses our specially designed and correct specification custom transformers for superior reliability, frequency response, and feel.
