Peavey: TransTube SS amps with power attenuator - The power amp reacts just like a tube output section by responding to the preamp with natural compression that increases as the amp gets louder. T-Dynamics control lets the player dial the actual output of the amp. With this control the player can select any output level from full output down to 10% of full rated power. Not merely a master volume, T-Dynamics changes the output of the amp to react as amp of the selected power would. This way you can dial in a sound and maintain it at any volume level. Perfect for going from practicing in your room to playing a big venue. Peavey invites you to try a TransTube amplifier and see for yourself.
TransTube Studio Pro 112 - official page - excerpts:
Tube amp simulation, vacuum tube emulation. The preamp has been redesigned, using patent-applied technology that redefines tube-like distortion and harmonic generation in solid-state amps. The new second generation Transtube amps contain voicing switches on each channel to allow easy customization of the ampīs tone and gain. The clean channel has a Modern/Vintage switch, and the lead channel has a 3-position switch providing High Gain, Modern, or Vintage tone. T-Dynamics control is awaiting several patents - recreates tube power compression. Resonance and presence circuitry. Turning down the T-Dynamics control lowers the power level the amp puts out.
