Plexi, Cascade Dual Mode Preamp:
The DIRTY SINK 6VEL features a tone stack voicing switch that delivers the sweeter JTM tone control voicing and balanced gain response in one position, and the more in your face JMP voicing in the other. The Plexi/Cascade switch lets you select the amount of signal gain on tap to and assigns it to the Gain control knob. Plexi Mode is where you’ll find Crisp British clean to crunch. Cascade Mode is where you’ll find scorching high gain tones. The Gain Boost switch engages even more gain sending the tone stack driver stage into clipping without compromising the overall headroom of the tone. See below for a description of each of the three individual amp voices.

Preamp Bias:
The Preamp Bias control is for players who thrive on exploring and crafting new guitar tones. Tube rolling in the preamp section will never be the same. It’s like a cheat code for tone junkies!

The Preamp Bias control features 4 bias presets that range from “cold” bias to “warm” bias. Cold biasing is a technique that reduces the amount of electrical current flowing through a tube gain stage. The lower bias, the smaller the the current – and the amplification performance of the gain stage occurs in a different portion of the tubes performance range. This can dramatically alter the tone and feel in unique and pleasing ways.

For example, it is possible to craft a tighter guitar signal with a more focussed dynamic response when running a gain stage with a lower bias current (cold bias). Conversely, it is possible to craft a fat, open guitar signal that is somewhat ambient in the way it loosens up when running a gain stage with a higher bias current (warm bias).

With the DIRTY SINK 6VEL’s Preamp Bias control, it’s possible to craft classic, open vintage British flavored tones as well as more modern, focussed higher gain tones and anything in between.

Handwired, Turret Board Construction:
The DIRTY SINK 6VEL is made by hand using FR4 board material that we source raw and drill in-house. Each turret is then hand placed and swaged to lock it into position. From there, we hand wire each trace to the back of the board prior to hand picking and installing the components and wire tails.
