Lancaster Brutis 15

The sounds it makes: The Brutis recreates vintage Vox, Fender, and Marshall tones of the late 50s and 60s. Due to the amplifier's slope control, it can sound tight like a vintage AC30. When rotated in the other direction, it creates the smoothness and grind of a '59 Bassman. When cranked, the amplifier summons a vintage Plexi.

Applications: At 15 watts of Class A power, the Brutis is perfect for both studio and stage. It produces reasonable SPLs that will not distort a microphone and has ultra-low noise. With its versatility, you get multiple sounds in one amplifier making it a wonderful tool for the studio or for showing off your tonal versatility on stage. Just because it's great for recording does not mean that it's not loud enough for live performances. You can take it anywhere you want the sound of a Marshall stack/Bassman's output tube distortion without drowning out the rest of a band. The Brutis is exceptional for rock, blues, and rockabilly.
