Budda MN-100

The Budda Amps MN-100 Head is an innovative amp that sounds outstanding and looks pretty sharp too.  This powerful and versatile amp was created in part by Mark Nason, who brings his signature style and design to the MN-100. Mark Nason is designer of Italian leather shoes for rockers who teamed up with Budda to create the unique look of the MN-100. This amp was designed to cover a range of sounds from a Fender Twin vibe on the clean channel, to a Marshall JCM 800 on channel 2 and a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier on the 3rd channel. This is one of Budda’s first entries in the area of modern multi-channel tube amps, and it’s also one of their most sophisticated amps to date.  But while some amps become overly sophisticated to the point of losing sight of the most important aspect of any amp—its tone—Budda’s engineers always made certain that the MN-100 was focused on capturing a specific style and sound.

The MN-100 features three independent channels.  The amp runs on 120 watts of power, although a half-power switch lets you cut it down to 60 if you prefer.  Under the hood, the MN-100 uses five 12AX7 preamp tubes, a 12AX7 for the over-boost circuit, and a 12AX7 for the phase splitter.  The main power section is run by four EL34s, although you can opt for four 6L6s if you like.  The amp generally uses two 5U4 tubes in its rectifier section, but you can modify it to use either 5AR4s or GZ34s.

Budda claims that this leather-bound product is the best amp money can buy, and it certainly looks like it’s worth a million bucks.  The final price tag for the MN-100 is $4,999. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.

Budda Amps

Budda Amplification was founded in 1995, making it one of the newer amp companies around.  However, founding designers Scot Sier and Jeff Bober were no strangers to the amp world.  Both had experience designing and building amps.  In fact, the first amp they marketed under the Budda Amps label, the 18-watt Twinmaster Ten, was based on one of Bober’s early designs.  budda-ampsThey debuted the Twinmaster at the NAMM show in 1996, and they sold out of all 65 amps the first day of the show.  This lead Sier and Bober to creating a line of low wattage boutique amps.

By 2004, Budda had grown to the point that the company had to expand.  With new means of production, they were able to add new products and product lines, including the Superdrive line of amps.  These amps are of higher wattage than the Twinmaster.  They also introduced the Dual Stage line (which has been discontinued), the Stringmaster amps, and they released the Twinmaster Ten a decade after it hit the shelves as a way of celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary.
