General description

The Meyer Brighton 20 head combines two differently voiced channels in a high quality custom amplifier. The first channel focusses on the mid tones in the guitar sound while the second channel has a balanced tone with lots of low end and high sparkle. The power amplifier uses a set of selected 6V6GT tubes and is powered by high quality transformer and a 5Y3GT rectifier tube. The pre-amps section feature two ECC83 (12AX7) tubes and a single ECC832 (12DW7) tube.

Like the Brighton 20 combo this amplifier handles the power for home, studio and live performances. The Brighton 20 head accepts one or two extension cabinets at 4, 8 and 16 Ω. Also available in a 45W and 14W head, 14W, 20W and 45W combo version.
