JOYO DualKlonz - All Analog Multi-path Amplifier Tube Head
JOYO DualKlonz - All Analog, All The Time
The JOYO DualKlonz is a beautifully designed all analog amp head that combines multiple amp circuits with switching relays to create a tone machine with unprecedented versatility. This revolutionary amp is able to switch between actual modern and vintage inspired valve circuits, not emulations, effectively allowing you to replicate the sounds of several classic amps without the need for any digital processing. There's even switchable speaker outputs for use with multiple cabinets, and with anywhere between 15-25 watts of power depending on what poweramp setting and tube combination are used, Dual Klonz will hold its own on stage but is also great for the studio and practice. All analog, all the time, DualKlonz is the ultimate valve amplifier!
Two Uniquely Voiced Multi-path Channels, Thousands of Options
This amp is an all analog multi-path amplifier, not a digital profiler or modelling amp. As implied by the name, DualKlonz is a two channel amp, one for vintage voiced circuits and the other for modern. Within each channel resides several selectable real amplifier circuits, which is why JOYO calls this amp a multi-path amplifier, not a modelling amp. Both channels can be used for clean and overdriven sounds with the highest gain being found on the modern channel. With tonnes of relays to choose from in each channel, you can get the amp sounds you’ve always dreamed of having but could never afford in one amp! The vintage channel includes one 12AX7 one 12AY7 tube and the modern channel has three 12AX7 tubes for those cascaded gain stage high gain sounds.
MIDI plus iOS and Android App Control
Once you’ve chosen your channel, you can choose the specific vintage or modern classic circuit you'd like to use. Circuit choices are easily selected with the bluetooth mobile app or via MIDI. Bluetooth pairing is a breeze with JOYO's simple app, simply turn the amp and app and hold them within the Bluetooth range, which can be close (so no one else with the app can change your settings mid performance) or normal (up to at least 5m). You can even mix and match preamps and power amps e.g. a British gold face crunch preamp with a fat tweed power amp.
For such an ambitiously designed amp, JOYO have managed to make driving it quite simple, it's just like a regular valve amp! Each channel has 2 gain stages, Bass, Middle, Treble and a Volume.
Global Power Amp Cut and Presence
Another feature of the DualKlonz is a global presence control, which boosts the high-mid and high "airy" frequencies for a livelier sound, and a cut, which reduces these frequencies. These controls are very useful for boosting clarity and liveliness on fat vintage circuits, such as a Tweed sound, or dialing back shrill intensity on modern high gain sounds.
Included Extras - Footswitch and 2 x Additional Power Tube Sets
As mentioned above, when you get the DualKlonz, you also get a footswitch, which not only allows you to switch between channels but also lets you choose your speaker cab. Since the DulaKlonz has multiple speaker outs you’re able to connect the head to two different cabs at once! Further to this, the tubes in the power amp stage a switchable, and JOYO includes an extra 2 sets of the classics, EL34s and EL84s (ships with 6L6s loaded). Swapping out the tubes makes the power amp circuits sound even more authentic, just be sure to switch off the amp before swapping!
The JOYO Klonz Story
The Dual Klonz story began in Italy where brilliant engineers Andrea Fiorini and Fabrizio Brenchio worked for two years to realise their idea for a unique, all analog, all tube, multipath amplifier - but they needed help to bring the idea to the masses. Enter the JOYO engineering team, who helped streamline the process of building the amp with the best components, just like the first prototypes. Now the amps are shipping and ready to blow guitar players’ minds around the world!
