So you've got a great guitar, carefully chosen pedals and now you need a head that gives you that tone you love... Well this is what you need.
Morgan are an American firm based in California that make high end amps and cabs. This 40 watt head has great tone with the style of an old British amp combined with a good few modern touches. This is a professional grade head with a solid build that has great clean tone, a bright switch for lead playing and with 8 and 16 ohm outs you can connect them to a range of cabs. Morgan make a matching range which sound stunning with these heads.
So the overdrive pedal at the center of most rigs is best used when your amp is already near the top of its volume, to over drive the speaker. If you have the space to set your amp at full volume that's fine but it's never that simple. Some heads have switches which select different power levels but this one has a dial.... anything you need between 1/2 watt and 40 watt you can now dial in.
If you're a guitarist who plays clean to overdriven tones and you need an amp that can handle anything from a smoky club for a small crowd all the way to those venues where you need binoculars to see the stage from the back of the crowd then this head is a great choice.
This head has Morgan's Classic finish. This has a traditional, understated style and as we all know Black goes with everything so this would suit a whole range of styles.
Here's what Morgan have to say about this head
The Morgan AC40 Deluxe is a deceptively simple amplifier that is capable of producing a myriad of early 60s British tones but that is just the beginning. The switchable EF86 tube helps to make the range of tones from the cleanest of EL84 chime to ferocious high gain growl. The power level control allows you to dial in just the right amount of volume without sacrificing your tone the way some master volumes do. The AC40 Deluxe was created to solve modern guitar player amplifier issues with the ability to stay true to vintage tonality. It is equally at home in the studio or on the stage. It can be seen on the stages of superstars like Jeff Tweedy, Mike Landau, Josh Smith and Kirk Fletcher. Plug into the AC40 Deluxe and you will instantly notice the familiar chime and compression of the Class A EL84 driven output section. The amplifier’s extreme touch-sensitivity will allow you to coax clean tones even at the highest of gain settings. To quote Keith Armstrong (Chief Engineer at Mix LA) “It is impossible to get a bad sound out of this amp!”
