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 SS is the baby brother to the massive pounding Nitro head. Thats not to say that this smaller sibling doesn't pack as much of a punch as its older brother, it definately does!
The tone of the Nitro SS is based on the full Nitro head with more low end, more gain and less mids and designed for the modern metal player. With 22 watts of power, this amp can still sound huge but it is great for playing at low levels in the studio or at practice sessions.
The SS features two channels, clean and overdrive with a shared EQ. The included three button footswitch allows switching from clean/overdrive, 1st Gear/2nd Gear and OD1/OD2.
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.
