CLASSIC EL34 Sound
British version of the classic 5E3 Deluxe
"I've never sounded better than I did tonight. The Tornado is an incredible simple and beautiful massive sounding small box beast. I've also not been inspired by the sound of my guitar in as long as I can remember. I had a wonderful time playing through your amp". -Dave Kolker
If you're looking for the glorious tones of a cranked-to-10, late '60's rock sound in a 35 lb. grab 'n go combo, the Louis Electric Tornado is the answer to your dreams.
The Tornado is a 36 lb, 1 x 12 combo and raucous companion to the Buster. The EL34 driven Tornado puts out 30 watts of stunning Louis Electric clean tones that quickly morphs into the glorious sound of a dimed stack, but at a more reasonable volume.
The clean tones are breathtakingly beautiful--big and warm with a gradual emphasis on the mid's and a tightening of the lows and highs as you wind up the volume. Gradually transforming this clean cut little combo into a miniature raging mini stack with loads of mid-range crunch.
Another incredible grab 'n go amp from Louis Electric. Stunning clean tones and jaw dropping crunch and overdrive make it a guitarist’s best companion at home, in the studio and on stage.
