In on trade, we have a pristine, all tube, swiss army knife of an amplifier from across the pond. The Artist 60 enhances the widely acclaimed and versatile Artist 20, offering the same extensive tonal options, responsiveness, and touch sensitivity that you anticipate. With our upgraded 60-watt output stage, it elevates the experience, seamlessly guiding you from exquisite glassy cleans to the timeless drive of classic rock and everything in between. This amplifier is deceptively simple yet remarkably rich in tonal possibilities like never before.

The Artist 60 incorporates Hamsteads distinctive Output Power selection, allowing you to run 60, 20, or 7-watt modes. Run at the full volume of 60 watts, boasting ample clean headroom. Switch to the 20-watt mode for a more easily driven option akin to the Artist 20. Finally, engage the dynamic 7-watt mode for authentic low-power output valve sag, and crank up the gain to achieve distinctive, characterful splatty breakup.

This amp also features "Signature Sinewave Reverb and Tremolo circuits". Both can be easily toggled on the front panel or through the provided footswitch. Additionally, you have the flexibility to rearrange the position of these effects in the chain with a simple switch.

With the Reverb, you have depth and tone controls, allowing you to transition seamlessly from bright and twangy tones to darker, ambient sounds. The Tremolo, equipped with the standard depth and speed controls, is purely analog for a smooth and even sweep at any chosen speed.

This amp has had rave reviews by the folks over at That Pedal Show and it certainly lives up to the acclaim!
