Peterson P100 Twin Channel Guitar Amp
Nobody has come close to matching the quality of the Peterson P100 guitar amp. Made in England in the 1980s, the P100G is a 100 Watt twin channel guitar amp designed for professional use.
The beautiful mahogany case and EVM 10 Electro Voice speaker give this little gem plenty of oomph and headroom for jazz, rock and blues players alike.
The player’s controls are on the top and each channel has the same controls – no expense was spared when they designed these amps. Tone is controlled by a full EQ (none of the usual tone-cutting here) with four ranges: low, mid 1, mid 2 and high. Each channel has its own reverb, gain and master volume. Yes, it’s really 2 100W master volume amps with 4 EQs in one lovely mahogany cabinet.
Where the fun really starts though, is when you set one channel to high gain and low master volume to produce a welly-wanging heavy metal rock sound and the other to something more sober (great for jazz or Brit pop by the way) giving you instantly the range of sounds needed for most covers. The other neat trick is to flick the split / link switch to produce a lightly distorted middle tone. Joyful, uncomplicated gig and studio friendly amplification.
A quick glance at the back panel shows this is a recording studio technicians’ dream, having a rear-facing level control, pre/post balance switch and dedicated jacks for DI, master send/return and channel 1 send/return.
This example is in mint condition and comes complete with original cover. Sadly, the footswith shown in the pictures is now missing. Although it’s quite easy to make a replacement (like we did in the past for one of these amps).
