Caiman AD5301 Combo (V-type)
Caiman 5301 combo is a full tube head amplifier, hand crafted by qualified craftsman. Lightweight and compact size makes this amp easy to handle. The amp has full-size 12" Celestion speaker: G12T-75 and produces pure tube 50W output power.
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. They work with very efficient Celestion V-type speaker, which handles 70 W.
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.
Switching between channels is possible using front panel switch or footswitch, which is included in the set. Both channels have bright switches.
Thick speaker cable connects amplifier's output with internal speaker. Its special length allows to connect the internal speaker to the external cabinet and use both at the same time.
