JOYO banTamP MeteOR - British Dirt
The MeteOR from JOYO’s banTamP series is a very compact and portable 20 Watt head voiced for players after a British high gain sound. Based on a more modern British approach to heavy sounds, it excels in a variety of genres. Though was the punk and indie scene that introduced these sounds to the world, today, due to an increase in gain, metal players enjoy this alternative British flavor. The MeteOR delivers these sounds in a tiny package with a hefty punch of gain and bottom end.
Real Tube Design
The amp operates with a single 12AX7 tube in the preamp stage and uses a solid state Class D power amp. The vintage voicing of the valve preamp gives the amp its tone, responsive dynamics and character, while the advanced Class D power amp keeps the weight low and the power high.
Two Channels and FX Loop
JOYO has packed a remarkable amount of tonal flexibility into the tiny banTamP chassis. The amp includes two channels, Clean and Overdrive. The clean takes pedals very well, which makes it a great little companion for many situations where your “big" head is just not sensible, while the 12AX7 circuit breaks up organically to create a variety of pleasing high gain tones on the overdrive channel. If this wasn't enough sonic variety, JOYO has also squeezed in an FX loop, which enables time based effects (or Phasers, Flangers and Choruses) to be inserted after the drive section to keep the effects sharp and not prevent them from being too muddy.
BanTamP includes one speaker out rated at 8Ω but it can also be operated at 16Ω with less power. The amp is small, but loud; its 20 Watts can be quite a handful! For when quiet volumes are required, JOYO have built in a headphone out with speaker emulation. If all of these tricks weren't enough, banTamPs also feature BLUETOOTH connectivity. This means simple connection to BLUETOOTH enabled devices for playing music through the banTamP, great for playing along to backing tracks or learning songs during practice.
