Seymour Duncan Power Stage Amps Pack Huge Sound In A Small Box!

The Pedalboard Amp Revolution is here—Seymour Duncan's new PowerStage 170 & 700 models are powerful new tools for the discerning guitarist that wants consistent tone from studio to gig in one ultra portable package.

                                         Power Stage 170                                       Power Stage 700

The PowerStage is truly the first power amp designed with the guitarist in mind. If you're anything like me you've spent countless paychecks on new effects pedals and hours fiddling with your board to get things just the way you want them. Your tone exists in that precise pedal arrangement, those subtle twists of the knobs. The PowerStage provides a portable power amp that you know will retain that meticulous tone you've spent so long dialing in, no matter what your next gig throws at you.

Alternatively, maybe you prefer the amp modeling & effects processor route which means you appreciate things being confined in one box. Whatever kind of player you are, these Seymour Duncan amps can give you a real tube amp sound at a fraction of the size. The beautiful part—it's a crystal clean transparent amp that lets every bit of your effects rig shine through without the need of a bulky amp head. 

When clean, consistent tone is what you're looking for the PowerStage line of amps is the perfect addition to you rig. These pedal sized power amps fit right in your gear bag or pedalboard and might just be the missing link in your signal chain. The horrors of depending on the backline gear at a bar or venue are a thing of the past. Just plug into your favorite cab or right into the front of house board and you're ready to go. 

At 170 Watts, The PowerStage 170 provides more than ample power to fill most rooms. If SERIOUS volume is what you crave then the Power Stage 700 will more than quench your thirst with a massive 700 Watts at 4 Ohms output. Added features such as direct DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) connection, stereo ins and outs, and highly refined cab simulation makes the 700-Watt model a worthy upgrade.  

The PowerStage is made to work with today's popular effects processors and stompboxes, providing a clean power stage with a universal 3-Band EQ to tweak your sound at the end of your chain. Toss in a gain stage/overdrive pedal like the Seymour Duncan Palladium and you've essentially got yourself a two channel amp head that reacts like a real tube amp when you toss some drive or fuzz into it.

Travelling musicians will delight at the freedom and clarity the PowerStage provides. The highly sculpt-able 3-Band EQ and over-sized level knob let you crank your stage volume with a quick flick of your foot. The PowerStage 170 has landed a permanent spot on Blues guitarist Jared James Nichols pedalboard while the high wattage, and stereo ins/outs have won over guitar virtuoso Mark Holcomb of Periphery & Dario Lorina of Black Label Society.
