Reaching the top of both clean and modern high gain tones

 

A hand-wired multi-channel high gain amp? The Zenith series of amplifiers offers all of that and more. Back in 2008, we introduced our most popular amp ever, the H&B 50. The Zenith is a culmination of everything we’ve taken from the evolution of that design and built upon it. Featuring a powerful clean channel and a burning gain channel, this amp is the definition of tonal versatility. We’ve always felt that many high-gain amps feature a clean channel that is more of an afterthought than a useable function, so we designed the Zenith to excel in both areas. Reminiscent of classic mid-60’s American designs, the clean channel showcases both a great top-end sparkle and a strong bottom-end. Stomp on the footswitch and you’ve got anything from a vintage British crunch to modern high-gain available in the second channel. The Zenith has great touch sensitivity, allowing you to clean up your tone or really bite down all with the way that you play your guitar. Add in the optional buffered effects loop and you’ve got a guitar amp that is a match for even the most demanding players.

By popular demand, the Zenith is now available with on-board spring reverb! Similar to the design found on our best-selling Aegean series of amps, our spring reverb circuit features a global dwell control and separate mix controls for each channel, as well as foot-switchable bypass/mute.

Also available in a 25 Watt model.
