Controls include Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble, and Presence. Each Dream Solo has an insert-style effects loop and power section consisting of a fixed-bias 6V6 duet paired with a custom-voiced Heyboer output transformer feeding signal to a Celestion G12H 70th Anniversary speaker. Power output is 20 watts. 3rd Power’s HybridMaster volume management, which allows the guitarist to separately control the listening levels independent of the tone of the amplifier.
The amps are also being used to introduce 3rd Power’s Flex Cab technology, which uses a deflection panel that works to create a triangular speaker chamber similar. With the company’s triangular back-panel port and proprietary acoustic treatment, it says the cabs deliver a wider, fuller frequency response than typical rectangle enclosures. It eliminates standing waves inherent in traditional cab designs. Dream Solo enclosuers are constructed with Baltic Birch. Learn more at 3rdpower.com/.
