August 4, 2014
|Mission Engineering Inc., a manufacturer of innovative electronic products for
musicians, announced the availability of a range of ground breaking
amplified guitar cabinets designed for optimal performance with today’s digital
Gemini with Mission EmPower™ Technology is the missing link in the world of digital
modeling processors and software based guitar systems. Gemini combines state of
the art digital amplification and interfaces that connect to almost any device, with
beautiful handcrafted wood cabinets that provide the look and feel of boutique tube
Mission EmPower Technology features multi-channel class D power amplifiers, active
crossovers with variable EQ, and full range co-axial drivers, all designed from the
ground up to work together as the perfect amplification solution for modeling
systems. Traditional pro-audio connectors such as 1/4" and XLR are joined by
24bit, 192KHz High Speed USB Audio Class 2 stereo to connect Gemini amps directly
with software based guitar systems on computers, tablets and smartphones.
“You can connect Gemini directly to your computer via USB and it shows up as an
audio device. This makes it really useful for recording as well as practice and
performance”, said Mission CEO, James Lebihan.
“We wanted to design a range of digital amps that looked and performed like traditional guitar amps but with connectivity and features to meet the demanding needs of todays tech based guitarists. This is why the Gemini range look like traditional cabinets and are made from ¾ inch Birch, high quality Tolex and have real chrome corner protectors…. But most importantly, they bring modeling gear to life. The most common feedback we get is that they sound so authentic” said Mission President Paul Shedden.
Mission Amplifiers and cabinets are 100% designed and manufactured in the USA and range in price from $1,099 (110watts into 8Ω mono 1x12) to $1,499 (220 watts into 8Ω stereo 2x12). Bluetooth connectivity module coming soon.
