Gibson Falcon 5 1x10 Combo

VINTAGE TONE REIMAGINED!


Gibson is proud to introduce the new Falcon 5 1x10 Combo amplifier. It pays homage to Gibsons legendary past as one of the worlds first manufacturers of electric guitar amplifiers. While inspired by the iconic Gibson Skylark amps from the 1950s and 1960s this all-new Petaluma California USA-built design from renowned amp pioneer Randall Smith and the MESA/Boogie Design Team delivers vintage tone reimagined and sets a new bar in tiny amp tone. The Falcon 5 is equipped with all the constructional upgrades and tonal improvements unearthed overRandalls five decades of tube-amp design that deliver nothing less than astonishing results.

The Falcon 5 features single-channel simplicity with a focus on great tone and ease of use. The ultra-simple pure signal path design has controls consisting of Volume and Tone plus the addition of Reverb an uncommon but welcome feature on a tube amp in this compact size and wattage class adds dimensionality and immensely increases the amps enjoyment and usefulness over a wide range of musical styles.

Players in the know have long understood that one of the secrets to great overdriven tone is power amp overdrive and lower-powered amps are key to turning up and achieving that cranked power amp sound without overwhelming volume levels. The Gibson Falcon 5 1x10 Combo is ideal for those demanding touch-sensitive nuanced response at the low end of the gain and power spectrum with a harmonically rich blend of vintage power-amp overdrive when turned up. All this vintage-flavored magic is brought to life via the unique mid-enhanced voice from a 10 Jensen Blackbird Alnico speaker which perfectly complements the volume range and single-ended Class A power section. The power section is enhanced with a built-in Power Attenuator allowing players to choose between Full or Low power settings providing even more ways to transition in and out of clip seamlessly and musically and making the Falcon 5 an ideal amp for intimate gigs home practice and recording purposes. With its modern refinements high-end performance and boutique construction the Falcon 5 is a vintage amp dream delivered with a sturdy consistent modern design ethos.
