Periodically I feature a particular amplifier manufacture that offers an exception amp. This is the line of amps that our Funky Frets store will carry in the spring and my personal choice for my jazz, rock and ukulele gigs. A combination of their MicroPro 200 Full-Range 8" and various extensions cabinets cover that a wide range of music styles.
( from listing's site ) - The Henriksen JazzAmp was created in 2006 to satisfy a void in the marketplace for a jazz archtop guitar amplifier that produced a pure and true reproduction of the instrument's tone. After having purchased a number of amps, and trying out an even larger number purporting to be jazz friendly amplifiers, I saw a common flaw in the basic design of all of these amps, at least for playing jazz. To my way of looking at it, that common flaw was in the institution of tone circuitry. Why not, I thought, create an amp with no tone controls at all. That would leave "tone color" decisions as the exclusive province of the instrument. The presumption is made that a high quality jazz archtop inherently has built in the jazz tone desired which then only needs to be made louder. Time and market acceptance has proven this to be a valuable insight.
Jazz guitar amplifiers and jazz bass amplifiers for the discerning, our Jazz Amps are small, light, powerful, inexpensive, warmer than Polytone amps or any other amp including tube amps. A Henriksen jazz amp packs sufficient power to play any jazz club in America. Henriksen Jazz Amps provide the warm sound of tube amplifiers in a light, inexpensive, and reliable package.
