    Product Description

    Hook Amps' Captain 34 is a 3-channel, all-tube behemoth that covers lots of sonic territory! Featuring a Plexi-inspired EL34 power section, the Captain 34 V3's redesigned power supply provides that unmistakable compression and touch sensitivity you'd expect from running at high levels, even at lower volumes. This amp literally sucks the tone straight from your fingers — in a good way! You really have to hear and "feel" it to believe it.

    Channel 1 - Shimmering, Dynamic Cleans

    The Captain 34's clean channel is well-balanced and highlights all of your unique playing nuances, with crystal-clear mids, a smooth bass response and sparkling top-end. The EQ has some special features too, including a bright switch for adding extra vibrancy and an EQ cut function that bypasses the tone circuit for extra gain and mid-range punch. There's also a footswitchable boost function, which increases the gain for a sweet Texas-style "edge of breakup" tone.

    Channel 2 - Covers Crunch & Distortion!

    Channel 2 boasts two different modes: 'Normal' and 'Boost'. The sound differs from light crunch through to fat blues distortion and old-school overdrive. This channel has its own dedicated gain and level knobs too, and shares its EQ with the 3rd channel. In addition to that, there's also an 'Edge' switch bumps up the gain and tightens the tone — perfect for achieving modern rock sounds.

    Channel 3 - British Voice, Made for Leads

    Captain 34's lead channel has 2 different modes: 'Normal' and 'Boost'. In comparison to the previous, this channel has a more British character that saturates and barks like nothing else! Channel 3 stretches from focused crunch to vintage tube overdrive, and you can really turn up the heat with the boost mode which adds more gain, punch and sustain — ideal for dramatic solos. The edge switch also works on the 3rd channel.

    Tube-Buffered Effects Loop

    A switchable, tube-buffered series effects loop with a 'return level' control (power section master volume) allows interfacing with a wide variety of guitar effects. The individual channel master level controls act as effects send levels, and the return level control then serves as an overall master volume when the loop is used. The effects send jack is always active and is useful as a low impedance, preamp section line out. When the loop is switched off, the effect buffer (send and return) is completely bypassed for maximum tonal transparency!
