pos·i·tron - [poz-i-tron].
an extremely small piece of matter with a positive electrical charge, having the same mass as an electron.
Born from the Del Fuego, our amazingly popular 18watt, Class A, 2 channel fire-breather, the Positron takes all the best parts of a Del Fuego and wraps them in a smaller, more portable and very cost effective package that anyone can throw over their shoulder and have their tone to go. The Positron is exactly as the name implies – extremely small and positively charged (to say the least).
The Positron is a quality, hand-built amplifier in the time-honored tradition of a famous and sought-after early 1960’s British model. It delivers revered vintage-type distortion without the “domestic havoc” and it is lightweight enough to save your back while still having the power to be gigable even in combination with 2 4x12’s. Each Positron is hand wired on a hand-built fiberglass eyelet board using components selected for reliability and superior sonic character. Simple enough to use for even your drummer, the Positron features one channel, with only a Volume and Tone knob to contend with. The Positron uses three 12AX7, two EL84 power tubes, and a solid-state rectifier.
This amp is hand wired, Class A at it’s finest. True tube, true Class A, true clean/blues/vintage breakup, true Texas. The Positron is redefining vintage yet again.
