LE58 AmpThe Louis Electric 40W or 80W LE58 is based on a 5F8-A Twin amp circuit. This amp was the first in the Louis Electric line. After this amp was built, Louis Rosano eventually heard that Danny Gatton was using the very same kind of amplifier and was able reach out him and have him try a Louis Electric Twinnmaster. Eventually Danny retired his Fender Twin amps and used the Louis Electric Twinnmaster exclusively at larger venues.
The Twinnmaster features a custom transformer, fixed bias system, 2-Jupiter 12LA's, Tungsol 5881's, three 12AX7 preamp tubes and 4 input jacks. The amp has two channels - Bright and Normal. The channels can be bridged for maximum tonal sculpting. And, lurking on the underside of the chasis, a little Damping knob which adjusts the level of negative feedback which is an excellent feature to have because most amplifiers only offer fixed resistor which limits tone shaping.
Power output: 40 watts ($2,895) or 80 watts ($3,095)
Speaker: 2-Jupiter 12LA
Speaker load: 4 ohms
