Press Release: VAC 15 ‘Greenback’ Classic; strictly limited edition amp, available to order exclusively at NAMM 2014

Carlsbro Holdings, Milton Keynes, Bucks., UK. Carlsbro has announced that its forthcoming VAC 15 ‘Greenback’ Classic limited edition vintage tube combo will be available to order exclusively off of the company’s stand at NAMM 2014.

The strictly limited edition, Celestion G12 M Greenback endowed, ‘Classic’ is being launched and sold-out at NAMM 2014. Limited to a production run of just 300 pieces, the amp’s 12 inch Greenback replaces the usual 8 inch speaker in the standard VAC 15. Orders are being taken on a strictly first come first served basis, for what is a uniquely affordable and exceptional sounding vintage tube combo.

Classic vintage tonality is produced from a combination of the Greenback, and the 3 x 12AX7 preamp and 2 x EL84 power stage tubes. An enlarged cabinet accommodates the bigger speaker and the amplifier also features an enhanced heavy duty input and output power supply transformers. Controls feature spring reverb, a bright switch, 3-band EQ and an effects loop.

Commenting on the NAMM debut of the flagship combo, Carlsbro’s International Business Development, Sales and Marketing Director, Paul Brewis, states, “This is a strictly limited classic amp that truly celebrates the best of Carlsbro’s heritage as a classic British guitar amp manufacturer. And with a suggested retail price tag of just $499, it is almost certainly going to be the most affordable collectors amp for a generation or two. Anything remotely comparable, in terms of sound and build quality, will set you back almost twice the price.”

Carlsboro will be at Hall A, Stand# 6000
