Tech Talk - Meteor Harp Amp (2006)

Kim Wilson shown with his Meteor.

This is it folks. You've found the home of the only REAL harp amp. The Meteor amp is a pure tone monster with 50 watts of pure useable tube tone. The four 6V6's produce a sound that is warm and overdriven like a harp amp is supposed to be. The note definition of the Meteor is crystal clear and never lost even when the amp is set up to be over compressed.

Every Meteor is made of the highest quality American made parts available one at a time. The circuit board is cut from sheet, all eyelet holes are individually drilled and staked one at a time. The boards are then laced with Mallory 150 series cap's, carbon comp resistors, Sprague "atom" electrolytics and finished off with vintage style cloth wire. The custom laser cut aluminum chassis is then assembled using custom wound Heyboer transformers, stainless steel fasteners and the attention to detail that every amp deserves. The chassis is bottom mounted into a solid pine cabinet with all dovetail joints for years of rock solid durability. The control's of the meteor are top mounted up front where the player is in a custom laser cut stainless steel control panel. The control panel is an integral part of the speaker baffle on the meteor which is covered in a cain grille cloth which accents the brown tweed perfectly.

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
