Savage Amps has been producing high quality vacuum tube and solid-state amps since 1990. Based in the Minneapolis, Minnesota, area, the company offers amps designs for people seeking a vintage or boutique tone. Some of the big names currently using Savage Amps are Pearl Jam, Sheryl Crow, R.E.M., Foo Fighters, and Beck, to name a few.
Savage currently offers six different amps. The Macht 12x and Macht 6, technically two different devices, offer players amazing tone and volume. These class A amps are all hand-wired and feature 2 input preamp, one or two 6V6 tubes (Macht 6 features one), and more.
The Rohr 15 amp features everything that the larger Savage amps do but it a little smaller and more compact. It’s a class A amp that is great for both studio play and using for gigs. It is a 15 watt amp that features two channels and is powered by two EL-84/6BQ5 tubes. (more...)
The Savage Rohr 15 Boutique Amp is a Class A amp that includes many of the features and control of larger Savage amps while still having its own, unique sound. It has a specially designed tone section that makes the Rohr 15 stand out, and it is perfect for use on stage, in the studio, and while practicing at home. It is, of course, all hand-wired and uses only the best transformers and components. It’s an all tube amp as well that pulls 15 watts of power and can carry a 4, 8, or 16 Ohm load.
The Rohr 15 is a 1x12 combo amp and is powered by 2-EL-84/6BQ5 tubes. It has two input channels and four input savage designs. The controls include reverb, tone, master volume, treble, middle, bass, and volume for both the normal and bright channels. One of the best things about this little amp is that it is fairly light and easy to take on the road with you. Its various options give you a lot of control over your tone, something you don’t often find in a smaller amp. The only downside to the Savage Rohr 15 is that it is fairly expensive—you may pay upwards of $2,500 to $3,000 for one. (more...)
