Fryette Memphis 30W Guitar Combo Amplifier
Memphis, once an important cultural center in ancient Egypt was also known as Ankh Tawy "That which binds the Two Lands", a fitting name for an amplifier design that empowers musical expression and exemplifies stylistic diversity.
Class A, Hand Wired, Boutique Values. Buzz words that sound great often fall short of great performance. It takes passion, ingenuity and innovation to bring something new to the table.
What could possibly be new under the sun in a vacuum tube amplifier? Cross-pollination of music styles and cultural influences produces new forms of expression. In Memphis, we push the conversation about the relationship between the player and the instrument to new heights.
Memphis is an innovative blend of modern technology and time honored sonic values. Modern technology brings us vastly improved component quality and reliability. Innovation enables us to extend and enhance the power and behavior of classic tube circuits, giving us a remarkably improved range of performance and versatility. If form truly follows function, the unique visual impression of the Memphis Thirty is a very good indication of the functionality and versatility one can expect to encounter.
The new Memphis series is the definition of inspiration, intuition and feel. This is what music and performance is all about.
