Devilcat Amps introduces the “Jean” series

August 14, 2013
Devilcat Amplifiers has added three new tube amplifiers to their lineup — the “Mean Jean,” “Clean Jean,” and “Lean Jean” all made in their Statesboro, GA manufacturing facility. Like their flagship amplifier, “Jimmy”, the “Jean” series costs hundreds of dollars less than traditional American made amplifiers in the same class. 
 
With the working musician in mind, founder Chris Mitchell created the “Jean” series as an alternative to the “one trick pony” trimmed down boutique amplifiers currently on the market. The “Jean” series continues to follow the company’s philosophy of offering solutions for the guitarist trying to achieve a maximum style range for an amplifier.  The Jean Series of amplifiers features include:
