We have a standing order with Greg to build this amp and we take pre-orders. For the moment all the stock items are sold, new ones coming soon.
After a long time we are finally in a position to deliver Germino Classic 45 ™ amps in Europe which are CE compliant.
So here is what you get:
The Club 40 is the defining early sound of the JTM-50 and JMP-50 Bass 50 watt heads. The amp uses an JTM/Bass circuit voiced for a flat frequency response. GZ-34 rectifier and ss rectifier are selectable by a switch allowing for the softer rounder feel of a JTM-50 or in ss mode the quicker pick attack and response of a JMP-50 Bass head
Output transformer is a Drake replica of the 784-139 specifically designed for EL-34's however will also work with various other tubes such as 6L6, 5881 and KT-66's. Plate voltage is 410vdc with GZ-34 rectifier and 425vdc with ss rectifier. Power transformer is externally selectable for 120v, 200v, 220/230v and 240/250v operation.
The Club 40 as with all Germino amplifiers use the same quality components, carbon film resistors along with Sozo Vintage "mustard" film/foil caps mounted on a hand wired turret board. BCR and F&T electrolytic capacitors, 2 watt PEC pots, Cliff jacks, NOS Cinch tube and Amphenol tube sockets all mounted in an aluminum chassis with spot welded corners for strength. Custom wound transformers are period correct using 1202-118 P/T, 784-139 OPT and 352-114 choke by Heyboer. The Club 40 is shipped with TAD EL-34B STR and Mullard reissue 12AX7's.
In tube rectifier setting the Club 40 is like a JTM-50, moving from big beautiful clean tones to bold crunch effortlessly. In ss rectifier setting you have an exact JMP-50 watt model 1986. The tighter feel of the solid state rectifier adds punch and more immediate response from players pick attack.
The Club 40 excels with either single coils or humbuckers. Very responsive to volume control adjustments from the guitar and instantly gives the user extreme flexibility running the amp with or without pedals. An array of early tones that go from incredible cleans to the definition of British crunch. Pushed, the Club 40 easily gives effortless response and singing single note lines. The perfect amp for a semi clean/slightly distorted tone with single coil or humbucking pickups. The Club 40 covers a very wide range of stellar tones and paired with either a 2 X 12 or 4 X 12 cab gives instant sounds of late 60's classic rock.
