The "Deluxe" model is built of plain-flame maple or basswood (tulipwood), while the front is made of multi-layer wood. This is covered with precious wood, such as bird's-eye maple, plane tree or walnut.
The high and low inputs allow you to have variable sensitivity depending on the choice of microphone and of the "attack" on the instrument. The "high" level input will overdrive sooner depending on the pickup output level.
The "low" level input will withstand pickup with high level outputs and will allow strong playing on the instrument without overdriving. It is possible to use the two inputs at the same time if your instrument is equipped with two different microphones.The tubes on our amps are chosen and tested for their musical qualities. A tube lasts about 5000 hours ! The three tubes used on our amps are available in many specialised shops. The build quality is excellent for certain makes, although certain others are best avoided. Please feel free to consult us for advice on this choice.

The « input/output » is like the Pick-up connexion to be found on the original Stimer amps (M6). It allows for playing over a play-back from an MP3 or a CD player. It is also possible to connect the amplifier to another amplifier or sound system with the « source » output.This « input/output » requires a 3.5mm mono jack. ATTENTION : You must never connect a « speaker » output from another amplifier to the « entree/sortie » mono jack.
