“A tone that stands alone” is the mission statement of Tony Bruno. The builder, designer, and sole brain behind the now legendary Bruno amplifiers. Tony Bruno is a man obsessed with a single goal – To build a guitar amp with the ultimate tone. To this end he uses only the highest quality Premium and New Old Stock components for each amp.
From the Bruno Website:
"The Bruno Underground 30 is one of the most coveted guitar amps in the world. It is an incredible sounding, hand-built masterpiece that has received rave reviews and awards from top musicians and guitar publications. This is an amp that must be heard and only then can you understand how an amp from a small boutique company could inspire such extraordinary endorsements.”
Every Tony Bruno custom amp is built and tested by Bruno himself. Not only that, but they are individually tested in a band environment to ensure the best possible performance for the professional musician. No amp manufacturer has the attention to detail of Tony Bruno, and the end result is a line of the best guitar amps money can buy.
This Underground 30 features Tony's Custom 3 Knob Tube Reverb System built in. This is the lushest, most spacious reverb system and has separate controls for reverb tone, reverb mix and reverb dwell. The tonal quality and flexibility of this reverb will astound you.
The Underground 30 features 36 watts of class A power from 4-EL84s, 3-12AX7s, and a GZ34 rectifier. Reverb models include 1 additional 12AX7s and 1 EL84 for the tube driven reverb circuit. The cabinet is constructed of solid pine for its sweet brightness and then fine tuned with a birch ply baffle for superb resonance. Finger-jointed construction is used just like the finest furniture which provides a very strong, extremely rigid, rattle free cabinet that will last a lifetime. Other features include premium tolex coverings, padded handles, heavy duty feet, stainless steel screws/bolts and chromed steel corners. Standard finishes are black, brown, dark green, red or cream with an Art Deco style control panel and aged Ivory "chicken head" knobs. It comes as a head, 1X12, and 2X12 combos.
The Underground 30 was the solid winner in Guitar Player Magazine's Feb. 97 shootout of 23 boutique guitar amps. It was also awarded Guitar Player Magazine's highly coveted The Year's best Gear award for 1997 in their Nov. 97 issue. Guitar World Magazine loved the Underground 30 and wrote an excellent review in their June 1995 issue.
The cabinet features two Celestion Blue Alnico 12” speakers. These are regarded by many as the greatest guitar speakers ever made – producing a clear, warm, almost ‘acoustic’ tone. Not in anyway fatiguing to the listener like many speakers can be. Originally appearing in the Vox AC30, the alnico blues are the go-to speaker for many of the top Nashville session guitarists. At a rating of 15 watts, the light, efficient construction of the voice coil and cone bring the most out of lower wattage amplifiers, offering loads of volume and articulation. These speakers are a joy to play through.
This amp is ‘like new’ with no marks on the sleek black tolex. This is a classy looking amp and will certainly draw compliments wherever it is seen or heard.
As far as boutique amps go, this is as good as they come. It is not expected to last in store, so don’t hesitate to get in touch to try out this fabulous amp.
