Expands Upon Award-Winning Flagship Model The JOAT 20RT with 30 Watts of Power with Two Additional Output Tubes in Unique Output Stage Configuration
Todd Sharp Amplifiers only launched in Feb. 2016 and their flagship model the JOAT 20RT is already generating a-list clientele, rave reviews, as well as Guitar Player Magazine Editors’ Pick Award, the highest honor from the publication. Expanding upon his award-winning debut model, Sharp will unveil the highly anticipated JOAT 30RT exclusively at Summer NAMM 2016 in Nashville, TN June 23-25.
Sharp’s latest model offers 30 watts of output using four power tubes (2x EL84 and 2x 6V6) in blended pairs. Sharp notes, “The JOAT 30RT model is the next step up in power – expanding on our highly successful 20RT design. I created it for the player who wants a little more kick and headroom that comes with the extra wattage. The JOAT 30 offers two optimized pairs of 6V6’s and EL84’s, each with its own output transformer which are then blended together at the speaker output. This technique keeps the pristine chime and clarity of the EL84 while mixing in the classic warm friendly magic of the 6V6. Otherwise, this is basically the same circuit as the 20RT. I am very happy with the overall design of the 20RT and feel that this option with its increased power will appeal to a new audience of clientele.”
The JOAT 30RT will be on site at Sharp’s booth #1255 along with the JOAT 20RT. Sharp will be present and offering exclusive specials for NAMM attendees who visit the booth.
