The PhoeniX I is the 1-trick pony for Metal. Featuring an all custom circuit, specifically designed for the Modern Metal player. As the legends tell, a Phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. This is exactly what we are doing! Leaving the past behind, and creating our OWN life!
The PhoeniX I is where it all began for us. After a lot of reflecting on what we wanted as a company, it was decided that Fail or Succeed we were gonna DO US! So many companies in this business do nothing more than slap a new brand on the same old tired amps and call it theirs. We to fell in to this trap in the beginning. Not anymore! After nearly a year of Research and Development, the original PhoeniX I came alive. That was just the beginning though, we had to add just the right EQ curve that would showcase the big bottom end of today’s 7 and 8 string guitars. While a lot of theory and engineering goes in to designing an amp, the PhoeniX line was built primarily from trial and error. Hours and hours of having different musicians play through it while we tweaked and adjusted.
The PhoeniX I is the heart behind the new PhoeniX line as a whole. It is a stripped down version of the PhoeniX 2, and a hopped up version of the PhoeniX Legacy. No bells and whistles, just plane AGGRESSION!

PCB/ Turret Board
The 2.5mm thick FR4 board is a combination of classic turret board design and modern PCB design. All signal related components are installed via turrets and all the channel switching circuitry is PCB mounted. This offers you the best of connection of yesteryear with today’s technology.
Over All Construction
The cabinet is offered in either tolex wrapped 3/4″ birch with Flamed Maple face or a full Flamed Maple cabinet with automotive grade clear coat. The finish is remarkable and extremely durable for life on the road. The Front and Rear panels are custom made in the USA with anodized aluminum. The lettering is etched in to the plates so, they will not Wipe off over time like other amps. We painstakingly chose every component in the amplifier; from the custom wound transformers to the low noise Metal Film resistors. We spare no expense! but don’t worry, as you can tell we didn’t jack the price up stupid like our competitors!
OPTIONS: You can request the FLAME or Noise Gate to be installed at an additional cost.
