Scott Splawn began playing guitar when he was 12, this was the time that the most saught after guitar tone was the famous Eddie Van Halen brown sound. This sound has had a huge effect on rock and heavy metal guitar tone ever since. Now, Scott build super high quality tube amps to rival that tone he aspired to all those years ago.
Scott developed his designs by modding old and new Marshalls when he learnt that these great amps could be made even better by clever modification. This was all while running a music store, Splawn Guitars and gigging with local bands.
Now, Scott and his small team are dedicated to making the best amps they can by hand from start to finish. Notable players of Splawn amps are Steve Stevens, Jon Levin and Killswitch Engage's Adam Dutkiewicz.
The Nitro is one of the best selling Spawn amps and is voiced with more low end, more gain and less midrange to suit the modern metal player. This amp features a massive 100 watts of power with a power switch to take it down to 50 watts. The Nitro is one of the best high gain rock and metal heads around with massive low end but is still very versatile.
The Nitro comes with a dedicated 3 button footswitch allowing the player to switch between clean and overdrive, OD1 and OD2 and engage the Solo Boost feature.
All Splawn amps are available in a variety of head styles and racing themed coverings, please call 0161 436 4799 if you want to custom order your amp.
