The 2202 started with the preamp of our 2203HW and 2204HW, but we added some features to make a timeless design even more flexible.
In the preamp, we added a 3-way Bright switch, which not only helps dial in the high frequency content, but also adds another means of sculpting the gain structure of the amplifier. Next, we added a powerful Boost switch, which defeats the tonestack and adds some serious gain and harmonic complexity. If that wasn’t enough, we added a Fat switch that was inspired by our OTS series. This changes the frequency of the Treble control, vastly thickening the midrange.
The power amp wasn’t safe either. We added a specially tuned Resonance control to help add thump and authority. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we added a Post-Phase Inverter Master Volume that is so good, you can sell your attenuators for MOAR AMPSZ.
Oh, we can’t forget to mention this is all in a small chassis using 6V6s to put out a rotund 20W of power.
