Fortin amps are renowned for delivering some of the heaviest high-gain tones on the planet, and the Evil Pumpkin is leading the charge. Packed into this yellow-faced 100 watt tube monster are all the modern and classic metal tones you could ever need.
From tight contemporary rhythm, to crunchy '80s goodness and onto searing leads you might associate with another famous American brand, the Evil Pumpkin is arguably the most complete metal amp out right now. Two EL34 and two 6CA7 tubes power one clean channel and two progressively crunchy channels with plenty of headroom and articulation.
But this isn't just a meathead amp. The Evil Pumpkin provides three 9V slots to power your pedals, as well as a phantom power MIDI in, series/parallel effects loop and a buffered tuner.
Here's what Fortin say about the Evil Pumpkin:
The culmination of years of collaboration across multiple amplifiers between Mike Fortin and Jason Frankhouser has brought a high-gain killing machine to the forefront of heavy music. 100 watts of tube power across 3 channels, (2 high-gain, 1 clean) creates ample headroom for decimating tone. Two high gain channels deliver everything from tight, articulate rhythm tones to liquid and expressive lead tones.
The third channel provides shimmering high headroom clean sounds. Evil Pumpkin is also MIDI controllable (IN/THRU) with MIDI IN also providing phantom power for a MIDI pedal. Leaving the amp on standby allows the player to kill the power tubes, run out of the FX send right to their interface and into a DAW, making the amplifier a formidable studio weapon as well.
A Series/Parallel loop, along with a buffered tuner out that can be used to control the Key Input on a ZUUL, and three 9V DC ground isolated outputs to provide power for pedals, completes the package.
