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.
This 22 watt has its roots in classic rock and heavy metal territory giving you famous rock tones of Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch, Warren DeMartini and other classic 80s tones. It doesn't stop there though, this amp is just as happy cranking the gain up and giving you some modern rock tone. The SuperSport has a great sparkling clean and two overdrive channels that share the same EQ. The overdrive also features two gain stages, Gear 1 and Gear 2. That gives you a lot of options for such a compact head. Around the back the amp has an FX loop with a level control, this can also be used as a master volume after the power stage allowing you to play at low volumes but keep that great valve tone.
The SuperSport comes with a heavy duty 3 button footswitch for Clean/Overdrive, Mode (Gear1/Gear2) 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.
