The PhoeniX II is the Epitome of Metal amps. Featuring all the bells and whistles on 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 II represents over 2 years of painstaking research and development. Fighting tooth and nail to capture every drop of harmonics we could squeeze. To add just the right EQ curve that would showcase the big bottom end of today’s 7 and 8 string guitars. No stone was left un-turned, from the Brilliant Clean channel to the buffered effects loop to the fully custom cabinet. This amp has it all.
The PhoeniX II comes equipped with an on-board foot-switchable Overdrive/Boost that is fully adjustable to offer full control of the tonal palette. Also on-board is a fully functioning noise gate that is necessary for the quick chops of rhythm playing.
The fully adjustable buffered effects loop offers total control of your time based and modulation effects. Also equipped with a bypass switch to remove it from the signal chain.

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!
