The Scarlett 30TM is our take on the classic Top Boost AC30 circuit with several very useful additions that take a classic tone and bring it up to date!
Designed specifically for musicians who play church music, the Scarlett 30 is fully featured, very affordable and offers many of the features and tones that church players need on a weekly basis.
Our focus when designing the Scarlett 30 was to design an amplifier that could be used by musicians in any size venue and still be affordable. Whether you play stadiums or small 50 seat chapels, you need an amp that will perform in any of those environments without sacrificing your tone, and the Scarlett 30 does that perfectly. Big or small room, low or high volume, the Scarlett 30 will cover any sound across the tonal spectrum and do them all with ease.
The Top Boost AC30 circuit is such a tremendous sounding circuit and has been used in every genre from country to rock but with all of its benefits, it is lacking one very important feature that would have made it perfect: A Mid-Range Control.
With the inclusion of a Mid-Range control, the Scarlett 30 allows the player to start with the classic tone of a Top Boost AC30 and tweak out the all too important mid-range tones to fit the mix perfectly.
In addition to the Mid-Range control, we wanted to create an amp for players that would perform flawlessly at low volume levels, and power scaling is the perfect solution. With the power scaling, you can roll the volume back for a small room or crank it in a stadium without any tone loss! The amp retains the sponginess of the tube rectifier and still has incredible attack even when running it at 1/8W! The amp is also super responsive. Whether you play delicate or heavy handed, the amp responds accordingly regardless of where the power is set.
Finally, the last thing we wanted to address is the amount of headroom the Scarlett 30 has. Since most church players use a lot of pedals, we wanted the Scarlett 30 to be able to handle whatever the player might throw in front of it. Whether you're searching for a super clean tone or something far more gritty, the Scarlett 30 achieves this effortlessly!
The Scarlett 30 was developed over a period of more than a year of design, redesign and tweaking to deliver one of the most flexible and useful amplifiers on the market. Whether you are a church player or a player who loves the class sound of a Top Boost AC30 but needs more flexibility, the Scarlett 30 was made for you.
