These days a client doesn’t need to be Alan Parsons or Jimmy Page to own a state-of-the-art studio, but there is still an investment in equipment nevertheless.

The Skinny: The American electronics company Milbert Amplifiers designs and manufactures products for the consumer electronics and musical instrument (MI) industries. The company’s Guitar Artists’ Guitar Amplifiers (GAGA) line of products provides studio owners, and for that matter live venue owners, with a single amplifier solution that can cover the sounds of everything from a Fender Twin Reverb to a Marshall JMP (“Plexi”) without switching amplifiers.

The Specs: The company says the amps utilize a circuit design that allows users to mix and match popular tubes such as EL34s, 6V6s, 6550s, 6L6s, and many others. The Germantown, Md.-based company says the amps also feature auto bias, auto impedance and auto standby circuits to support its ability to run these tubes without damage. Milbert adds the amps incorporate its Universal Power Blow-Proof parallel output option that is designed to drive any speaker cabinet with any cable without the fear of damaging the amp or speaker.

Some of the other unique components to the amps, which come in 30-, 60 and 90-watt versions, is that because of their transformerless designs, the amps are lightweight and easy to move. The amps also include the company’s P3 phantom power technology. Milbert explains that when consumers use a standard TRS stereo instrument cable and activate the P3 feature, they can power their active pickups or effects pedals. When the P3 option is used with a breakout box, the power can be run in a daisy chain configuration. The benefit of this technology, the company points out, is that it eliminates ground loops and the concerns associated with using batteries.

Solutions: The amplifiers can be used in recording studios and for live sound reinforcement in a guitar player’s backline.
