Small but mighty: 28 watts of all-valve tone fit for home, studio and stage. One channel, no messing…
The BD1 is exactly the same as the RD1 Rob Chapman Signature Head, but in standard black finish. Ultra compact and single-channel, it's a superb sounding rock machine designed for real, all-valve tone wherever you go. Despite the tiny box, the dual EL84, fixed-bias power section delivers up to 28 watts in full power mode, and just 2 watts in low power. And it's only 263mm wide – smaller than an A4 sheet of paper and super easy to fly with.
Contour increases bass and decreases mids when turned clockwise (and vice versa). The deep switch increases low frequency response in the power amp.
The BD1's series effects loop has a mix control so you can hear as much or as little of your loop effects as you like.
The fixed-bias power section delivers up to 28 watts in high power mode and just 2 watts in low power mode.
