World class quality and tone at a great price!
The Albion TCT35C Guitar Combo Amplifier has 2 separate switchable channels, both featuring the same controls per channel. Channel A features the EQ circuit before the gain stages, while Channel B features the EQ after the gain stages. Both channels feature the capability of running from clean through crunch to high gain lead. But due to the different voicing provided by the EQ position, both channels have an entirely different spectral response and player's feel. The custom designed 12 inch Albion speaker is used to give it the classic tone.

The TCT35C combo amp sounds as good as it looks. Albion uses Birch Ply for all their cabinet work utilizing interlocking panels and resonance controlling reinforcing struts. Proprietary vinyl covering and custom cabinet hardware is also used on the TCT35C. The final touch is a piano-finish stained walnut baffle-plate giving a lustrous dark plum colored contrast. The amplifiers feature a seam-welded steel chassis to securely hold the heavy duty transformers, well supported FR4 printed circuit boards (many being double-sided PTH types) and chassis mounted valve bases. Albion designs and builds their own transformers and loudspeakers. All PCBs, wire, plastic and die-cast parts, and speaker cones are custom designed and built in house. The TCT35C amps are all twin channel switching amplifiers.
Although each channel has differing voicing structures they both go from clean to scream for ultimate functionality and wide tonal response. All the Albion TCT amps also feature wide ranging power amp controls widening the tonal response even more - switchable feedback loops, Edge (presence) and Depth controls, output Phase and 33% power switching. Natural sounding digital Reverb and a series FX loop round off the amp functions.
