Artisan 100 awarded Guitarist Choice - March 2008
The Artisan 100 head is the latest amplifier in the range to receive a tremendous review by Guitarist magazine. Following in the footsteps of its smaller siblings, the Artisan 100 picked up the coveted Guitarist Choice award, making it a clean sweep of awards for the whole Artisan range. Reviewer Nick Guppy writes: ‘If tone is everything to you, every classic rock guitar sound you ever wanted to hear is lurking inside that chassis – all you have to do is plug in, turn up and stand back.'
