RedPlate introduces the CDS2 Chuck D’Aloia Signature combo

January 18, 2013
imgRedPlateAmps is in production with the CDS2 (Chuck D’Aloia Signature Version 2), the latest in their line of signature series amps. Measuring only 17" X 17" X 8.5" and weighing around 36 pounds, the amp has an incredibly small footprint with a sound so large and spatial it must be heard to be believed. The CDS2 is a pedal friendly platform that gives the player the ability to switch between the legendary clean tones of a blackface-style preamp or the touch sensitive break up of a 50’s tweed preamp. The flexible overdrive section can be set for anything from British crunch to smooth endless sustain and an all-tube fully buffered effects loop is perfect for your time based effects. Like all RedPlate Models, the CDS2 is handmade in the USA.

CDS2 Features:
• 6-way Mode switch sets midrange Q for everything from a scooped “country” tone to a full on fat “fusion” tone
• 3-Way Bright Switch
• Tone Stack Bypass – Turn the Bass knob all the way counter-clockwise and remove the whole tone stack from the circuit to get a “guitar-straight-to-volume-and-master” path that is raw and powerful
• Tube Serial Effects Loop – Most useful effects loop out there – adds to the tone even when no external effects are used
• Blackface, overdrive and tweed channel switching via front panel or 3-button foot switch. Foot switch uses a standard midi cable for easy replacement
• Presence control (on rear panel) for maximum headroom at loud volumes. Can be bypassed for more “tube-y goodness”
