Developed under the supervision of NYC guitarist Oz Noy, the New York Blues Tone Capsule brings yet another expressive voice to the Blues Cube amp series. It takes the amp into the realm of the traditional British EL84 combo—often referred to as the “class A sound”—while still offering fundamental elements of the Blues Cube’s American tweed heritage. Voiced for classic chime at lower settings, the Clean channel becomes sweeter, creamier, and more overdriven as the volume is cranked. Switching to the Crunch channel kicks in a bolder tone with thicker midrange that’s perfect for rock rhythms and fat lead solos. Dynamic and versatile, the New York Blues Tone Capsule delivers a unique tonal fusion that captures the international diversity of the New York City music scene.
“What we all like about tube amps is that you have this compression, and that’s what kind of keeps the tone moving. And this has it big time. It’s great.”—Oz Noy
