www.premierguitar.com PG’s Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he checks out the newest products from Satellite Amps. In this video segment, we get to hear the loudest amplifier at the LA Amp Show was Satellite’s updated Omega MK II. Designer Adam Grimm’s goal was to create an amp that is loud and aggressive, even at the lowest of volume settings. This 50-watt beast is loaded with a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes and a pair of EL34 power tubes. It has a solid state rectifier and a three-control front panel with Volume, Bass, and Treble.

The Deluxe Memory Boy is the newest delay from the Memory Man family. Quality ICs deliver warm and organic analog tones while tap tempo allows you to always be in sync with the groove. Choose five note divisions for metronomic variances. Sweet modulations can be set while the expression pedal input gives you external control. The Deluxe Memory Boy is the most flexible analog delay ever designed.
The Signal Pad is a passive attenuator that allows you to instantly switch to a different preset volume. It’s like your guitar’s volume knob, with a fully-passive and color-free circuit. Leave your amp’s volume set high for overdrive, and use the Signal Pad to lower your level for a clean sound — then switch it off to kick in your amp’s natural overdrive. You can also experiment with the Signal Pad anywhere in your effects chain — you’ll bring out new tonal combinations from your favorite old pedals.
