65amps The Whiskey
1 in stock
Rich, Vibrant Cleans and Hot-rodded Distortion
You get that definitive LA guitar tone with the 65amps Whiskey tube amplifier head, which has modern flexibility that you’ll appreciate both onstage and in the studio. 65amps worked closely with tone-wizard Dave Friedman to bring you throttled-up tone that also pumps out sweet clean tones with the best of them. Guitarists at Sweetwater know that the design of most high-gain amplifiers often sacrifice the quality of the clean channel. But the Whiskey’s clean channel is completely independent of the master volume circuit, giving you the best of both worlds.

Hot-rodded amp with glorious clean tone, too
While 65amps worked with Dave Friedman to give the Whiskey that iconic LA guitar tone with liquid leads and rich distortion. While they wanted to nail the distortion sound of a classic hot-rodded British amp, they didn’t want to sacrifice the character of the clean channel. The Whiskey’s clean channel is completely independent of the master volume circuit, which leaves all the chiming, plucky goodness of the clean channel to shine through.
The versatility you need for a wide range of styles
The gurus at 65amps are gigging guitarists, too, and they know what you need both onstage and in the studio. The Whiskey is incredibly responsive, tonally versatile, and plays well with pedals. Even if your sets include a variety of styles, from classic rock and blues to modern pop tunes, you’ll be impressed with the versatility of the Whiskey.
65amps: awesome amplifiers made by guitarists, for guitarists
The founders of 65amps, Dan Boul and Peter Stroud, are a couple of accomplished guitarists who turned to their passion for guitar tone when they created amplifiers such as the Whiskey. Drawing from Stroud’s extensive experience onstage with Sheryl Crow, 65amps came about as an attempt to create roadworthy guitar amplifiers capable of keeping stage volume low while providing the rich and complex sound of full-sized amps. Since hitting the scene in 2002, 65amps models including The Whiskey have made their way into the rigs of guitarists such as Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Peter Frampton, Vince Gill, and Keith Urban.
