Used Brown Note D’lite 50 Watt 6L6 Powered Tube Combo Guitar Amp
Tone characterized as fat and smooth with a nice bite to the top and tight thick lower mids and bottom. The D'Lite delivers a wide palette of available tones, from warm round cleans, to shimmering crystal cleans, to aggressive power stage breakup, to smooth saturated high-gain overdrive, and all degrees in between.
Founder Moss Hudson rather than follow the conventional path into amp manufacturing—one that typically begins with learning the ropes doing repairs and mods—Hudson made his name by selling kit amps to DIYers. Eventually, he added assembled amps to the offerings and now Brown Note has a full product line, ranging from low-wattage tone machines to 100-watt beasts. This one was built by Moss and is not a kit.
The circuit is the same as an 84 ODS with Skyliner Tonestack and it uses the more robust preamp power supply of the Robben Ford amp (47uF filters instead of 22uF). The amps has been well cared for. The textured cream amp covering has picked up some dirt over time and there is a slight rip on the lower back panel. It is equipped with a Celestion G12-65. A perfect compliment to this D style amp
Overdrive and Normal Preamp Channels
Channel switching of the overdrive selection is achieved by a rear panel mounted switch as well as a standard 5 pin Din cable foot-switch.
Pre Amp Boost
The foot-switch-able PAB feature (Pre Amp Boost) defeats the tone stack, increasing the pre amp signal and producing a distinct volume and EQ boost.
