Information

Brand New with Warranty​​​​​​​. We are an authorized 3rd Power dealer.

The flagship 3rd Power model, and for good reason! The new 6VEL Kitchen Sink features 3 flavors of Plexi on the dirt channel, and 4 flavors of clean which can be blended from American- to British-inspired with the “big knob.” At the core of the 6VEL series is the ability to run the amp on EL34, 6L6 or 5881 power tubes for 40W operation, and on 6V6 power tubes for 20W. Bias adjustment and meter patch points on the back of the amp make the tube swap a breeze. Despite its incredible flexibility, the true beauty of the amp lies in its tones and in the straight-forward approach to dialing in the perfect sound for any situation. Suffice it to say… from initial impressions to in-depth use, we are true believers.

Dirty Channel

The dirty side features two Plexi tone stack flavors (’65 JTM and ’68 JMP) and a footswitchable ‘80s “Jose” Mod driven by cascading preamp tube stages and clipping diodes to boost your gain further than the traditional Plexi tones. The amp’s clarity remains remarkable as you roll down the volume on the guitar, and likewise stays tight and defined as you push the amp harder. You won’t have to worry about getting flubby on the low end when you roll up the bass or gain. Use the Push knob to sculpt your bottom end in the power section, and the Presence knob to add or remove some bite in the high end without compromising your preamp section EQ. From subtle push to classic breakup to balls-to-the-wall, this channel has your dirty wishlist covered.

Clean Channel

Now features four voicings: American ’65 Blackface & ’62 Brownface, plus AC Normal & Top Boost. The American and AC sides can be blended together to taste with the “big knob.” We find this to be extremely useful for bringing out the best qualities of each guitar in your rig, especially when every nuance counts for finding the perfect tones in the studio. Need some “bite” on a darker humbucker guitar? Start dialing in that AC side with the Top Boost on. Want that Strat part to jump out in the mix with rich upper-midrange chime? AC all the way. Searching for full warm and spanky tones? American Blackface is going to be your ticket. Want a little more midrange, sag and grunt? American Brownface. And that’s a new go-to of ours, by the way. Just added on the 6VEL Kitchen Sink, the ’62 Brownface voicing provides some of the biggest, meatiest clean and clean-ish tones you’ve ever laid your ears on.

Hybrid Master

The thing that makes all this possible at a variety of volume levels. It is truly the most effective solution to master volume or power scaling that we have encountered on any amp. We have spent extensive time with the Hybrid Master in real-life environments and are pleased to say it produces great tones even at conversational levels. At low volume the amp still feels big when mic’d up and monitored through in-ears, without the loss of tone or sustain a quiet tube amp usually falls prey to. Want to push the amp over the top with the gain cranked and the ‘80s Jose Mod engaged? Just pull back that Hybrid Master and enjoy those saturated drive levels at ear-friendly volumes.

  • Pristine tube-buffered effects loop for your time- and space-based effects

    • 3) Hybrid Master Bypass Control (set the perfect jump in master volume between rhythm and lead tones)
