STONE 1848 ToneX Essential
  • STONE 1848 ToneX Essential

    This is one of the quirkiest amps we've worked with. It is waht we would call a shabby chic tone. When going beyound clean tones ,it always sounds somewhat fuzzy, eve nwith the bass turned low. But this is not where it sounds best.


    This amp shines with the bass rather high (arguably verging on too high for many pickups and pickup positions) and a bridge pickup of a single coil or Humbucker guitar. It has a very gnarly and characterful tone that on itself reaches mild fuzz territory. 


    To our surprise it takes a big clean boost in front like a champ, this is actually where it really delivers feroucious fat and fuzzy tones reminescent of the White Stripes era of Jack White. It also takes fuzz pedals and pedals that ar fuzzy really well. 


    Though this is definitely not amogn our morst versatile amps, surprizingly it actually delivers really nice clean tones, especially on Channel I.


    This is by no means the usual bread and butter amp you want to play every day, but when you want an amp with gobs of character and attitude, you'd be hard pressed to find a better match. 


    It is by nature an amp that sounds best with the bass quite high, lowering it loses a lot of the likeable character of it. You can easily compensate for this with the ToneX EQ - bass and depth dials will take you a long way to dialing it in. WIthout tweaks it best works with bridge pickups and is primarily what it is meant for.
