Sachem guitar

 

         to our knowledge, the Sachem guitar is the very first "hi-end" combo amplifier for guitar

 

 


 

 

The preamp unit is a modified Sachem pure and the amplifier unit is a hi-end Sachem mono-block, with the power supply featuring increased capacitance, for a total of 88.000 μF.

The power supply and the final stage of the amplifier unit are hyper-sized and the result is a tremendous peak max current of 20A on the speaker, equivalent to musical instant peaks exceeding 3200 Watt.

Both preamp and amp units feature only polypropylene capacitors in the signal path, and as few as possible. The use of polypropylene capacitors is of paramount importance to obtain a sweet and mellow sound, like a tube amp, but without the dirtiness of the tubes and ... much faster indeed.

The loudspeaker is the much acclaimed Eminence Red Fang 12", which features a large AlnicoV magnet. It provides "vintage British sound" timbre, see here. If this loudspeaker doesn't meet your musical needs, we will replace it with any 12" driver you may prefer.

The loudspeaker is connected to the power-amp by a very short, hi-end speaker cable, the Nordost 2 flat, which features solid core conductors, made by 99.9999% oxygen-free copper, see here

The preamp features two sockets (jack 6.5 mm), marked pre IN and pre OUT, in order to allow the connection of any effect units or a tuner. Please note that the connection of effect units in the preamp--amp loop, and not between guitar and preamp, avoids the deterioration of the main signal coming from the guitar.

On the back panel of the amplifier unit, you find two sockets (jack 6.5 mm) marked IN and OUT. The IN socket could be used to connect an external, different preamp (if desired), but its main use is to receive the signal from the OUT socket of another Sachem Guitar combo, in order to connect in cascade as many combos as you need.

The preamp features a Standby switch, a Gain control and a Master volume. The tone controls are very versatile: Bass - Mid - Treble, plus a "Presence" switch.

The Sachem Guitar responds as no other, with incredible speed and total control of the sound. Notes have a lightning fast attack, and instantly stop, when you stop. Fast, sweet, clean and clear, it produces a tone full of harmonics, free of any audible distortion, but also the ability to dial in very creamy and adjustable overdrive, if desired.

The Sachem Guitar combo can deliver a massive and explosive sound pressure of 125dB/1m, without any strain.

For superior performances, or better, to stun people in front of you, you will add an external 8Ω speaker-cabinet, featuring four Red Fang 12" or Red Fang 10" or any other drivers you may prefer. In this case, the amplifier "sees" a load of 4Ω (or less), which means that, if required, it will deliver instant peaks of incredible wattage to the loudspeakers. You'll be pervaded with the feeling of a free flying sound and of an eager and endless amplifier, which seems to fully enjoy the very demanding experience!

If still not enough, and you want to kill, connect in cascade as many Sachem Guitar as you want, in order to make a Brian May style "sound wall". In this configuration, you can also set up a combo with crystal-clear sound and a second one in overdrive: the resulting sound is ... just amazing!

The Sachem Guitar is a totally silent combo and the only audible noise is the one generated by the guitar.

A unique and distinctive "sound-machine" for stage, concert hall and studio. Spark off the genuine sound and dynamics of your instrument!

The only "bad point" of the Sachem Guitar is its price, which is as high as its quality, unfortunately.
