So, it is said that “Some of the greatest inventions were made by accident.” Well, that is definitely the case with the PhoeniX Legacy. The Legacy is the 1-trick pony for Classic Rock and much more. Featuring an all custom circuit, specifically designed for….hell I’m lying. It was pure luck HAHA. But man does it do Classic rock so GOOOOD.
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 Legacy is the byproduct of a mistake. After MANY MANY hours in the shop developing the PhoeniX I, I accidentally bypassed an entire preamp tube. For those that don’t know, there are 2 gain stages in each ECC83. So I went from 5 gain stages to 3 but result was….well Pleasing. It has a definite vintage feel but with MUCH more punch. I later decided to put the “mistake” to the test and send it on the road. The band that took it, applauded its articulation, punch, and ability to take pedals, and begged to keep it. Well I couldnt do that. Not till I had a chance to go through it and make it it’s own name!
The PhoeniX Legacy is the pure RAW TONE. Her flaws are what made her beautiful. No bells and whistles, just plain POWER!

The 2.5mm thick FR4 board is a combination of classic turret board design. All signal related components are installed via turrets. This offers you the best of connection.
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 to be installed at an additional cost.
