It’s been a while since I’ve scooped _everyone_ on a new ANK product, so I decided to go rogue and break this new product news – after checking with the boss, obviously 😉 Seriously, though, this is a product after my own heart since I am a fan of underdog gear and a serious fan of the EL84 tube. So, without further ado, here it is: the all-new EL84 Tube Rectified Parallel Single-Ended Monoblock!
This is serial # 001, and I snapped a picture while it was on the bench for some comparative capacitor sound tests. This is going to be a great kit for a beginner as it is a single-board design. It’s tube-rectified with the GZ34/5AR4, a first for ANK entry-level gear. And just check out that output iron and the massive mains transformer and choke- this amp is no toy. I’ve been listening to it for the past couple days and it sounds really good!
