All tube, hand-wired amplifier head, 15 Watt.
Inspired by the likes of Neil Young, The Edge and Kenny Burrell, Cosmic Amp Works® introduces a fully hand-wired tube amp based on a legendary 15 Watt example. No printed circuit board, no transistors, no chips… pure analog tube sound! For improved portability and easier access during gigging, the Lunar Module 5E3 comes as a lightweight (7.5 kg) head with front-mounted controls.
This formula also adds flexibility in mixing and matching with different speaker cabinets. The Cosmic Ampworks “Atlas”, for instance, houses an efficient Eminence Legend 1518 speaker, for maximum volume during live gigs. For recording the amp’s signature ragged overdrive tones, use a less efficient vintage speaker. Speaking of which, the Lunar Module makes a great recording amp, due to its exceptionally low noise floor!
The amp features two independent channels (bright and normal), each with two inputs (hi and lo) and a dedicated volume control. The tone control is shared. So, in situations where only a minimal setup is possible, the Lunar Module can accomodate two guitarists (e.g. lead and rhythm) or even a guitarist and a singer.
