Italian manufacturer Gurus Amps has announced their new Brivido Project line of amplifiers.
From the company:
Brivido is the first of a product line that will be unified under the same name and concept.
Brivido gets its name from the emotion we felt when we first heard it. It could be translated as “thrill” or “shiver,” or something you can feel when music or tone is able to touch your soul and expand your creativity.
We took inspiration from an idea of the ’60s era, where some crazy engineer designed tube power modules for jukeboxes and live club power units that were made with a couple of EL34 tubes running at a much higher voltage than the other tubes.
When restoring many of these old modules, we found great results when applying this to a modern guitar amp, with some mods to increase the performance and safety as well.
This idea helped us reach some of the best results of our careers with Gurus Amps, creating something that can be defined as the “holy grail” of guitar amps.
It works with just the double of dynamic range of any other existing amp, and you can feel it under your fingers. It can generate unbelievable power with only 2 tubes, more than 100 Watts RMS, but the best thing is that it sounds impressive at any volume level.
We have manufactured the first amp of the Brivido series as a three channel head, so players can try its incredible possibilities in every application. Features:
- 2x EL34B, 100W RMS clean
- Infinite Sweet spots from 1W to >100W
- Tubes have a longer life (they work with a stable temperature of 150°F, less than standard use)
- Double Dynamic = unbelievable touch response.
