Caiman AD5300 Head
Caiman 5300 is a full tube head amplifier, hand crafted by qualified craftsman. This amp weighs not even 15 kilos and still has 50 Watts of power. The design of the amp, solves the permanent problem of every musician - the handling. It is not only light weigh tube amp, but also it's all integrated in a very compact housing.
With its soft and compressed sound, it is the ideal amp for all ranges from Blues to Metal, offering the comfort a musician is used to and expects from an amp. In preamplifier the classic sound meets the modern. The EL84M tubes, used in power stage, are very dynamic, warm and, which is more important, very reliable.
The Caiman has two switchable channels: clean and overdrive. Clean channel additionally allows to reach a little crunch (especially with turning Master Volume off). With overdrive channel though, you get tones from crunch to high gain. This channel also has two independent gain knobs, switchable using footswitch. For instance: you can then set the Gain 1 at lower values and the Gain 2 at higher. So, when you want to play a solo, only thing you need to do, is to switch Gain 2 using footswitch, like you usually do, when you change the channels. This will rapidly increase the amount of gain.
Preamplifier was designed to increase functionality of equalizer section. The regulation depth of each band allows to set many different tone types, which makes the Caiman extremely versatile amp.
Switching between channels is possible using front panel switch or footswitch, which is included in the set. Both channels have bright switches.
The Caiman has 4, 8 and 16 ohm outputs, so it's possible to connect every type of cabinet, but we have designed a special cabinet for it - 212 Caiman - which is compact and light weight.
