The Model G is a not-so-distant cousin to the Honey Bee…with a distinct flavour of its own.
The original has been discontinued…meet the NEW Model G+, which offers even more sustain and growl with the ‘C’ knob!
About the colour…the Model G+ is now made to look like the vintage Gibson amp it replicates!
The Model G+ runs on standard 9V and will work from 5V-15V.
The Model G+ captures the unique voice and response of an often overlooked brand of amps from the ’50s/’60s ~ the Gibsons that were right there at the beginning with Fender, Valco, Vox and Marshall.
The MG+’s sound is somewhere near the Tweeds and Supros but with a stronger and clearer voice, and a particular upper mid sound and snarl.
The Model G+ is related to the Honey Bee in the same way a Gibson Falcon or GA40 is related to a Supro…cousins with obvious similarities, but important differences.
The Volume, Drive and Nature controls are on both models.
The C knob is a big part of the difference – it controls several things at once: the upper mids EQ and snarl and slight speaker compression…like adjusting to different speaker choices/ages or even like moving a mic aimed at the speaker.
This new revised version of the Model G offers even MORE sustain and growl than the original!
Quick Set- up:
Start with all 4 knobs full left.
Choose your Volume
Set Dirt level
Then adjust the Nature control concentrating on matching the lows of your amp…
Then roll up the C knob concentrating on the upper mids EQ and the overall snarl response.
