AMPLIFIER NO. 7

15/25w Lead

Amplifier No. 7 is a 15 or 25 watt non-master volume amp built on simplicity and purity of tone. It has an openness and clarity that is unmatched.


Like all BC Audio amps, Amplifier No. 7 is meticulously hand crafted in true point-to-point fashion, and employs 6SL7GT octal preamp tubes for their rich, warm tone and power-tube-like breakup.

EDITORS' PICK AWARD
AMPLIFIER NO. 7 REVIEW

Guitar Player Holiday 2010
By Darrin Fox

“A joy to play…


Bell-like clean tones of a Vox AC30,

the toughness of a blackface Fender…


A finely manicured grind and a singing, musical midrange and taught bottom end…


Like every amp you’ve ever heard, yet something all together different with its own character and vibe…


Amplifier No. 7 is impressive in more ways than one, but its most remarkable attribute is its tone. Bravo!”

AMPLIFIER NO. 7 REVIEW

Guitar World July 2010
By Chris Gill

“Sweet 6V6 overdrive and chiming clean tones with surprisingly ample headroom and volume…


Killer tones that will stun any audience…


Build like a tank…


As far as smoothness and tone, this is the one I’m gonna put on point. Definitely check this out.”

AMPLIFIER NO. 7 REVIEW

The ToneQuest Report March 2010

“...one of the best sounding compact and moderately-powered rigs we have ever reviewed. Yes, we said that, without reservation…


A deceptively big, lush sounding rig…


Clean and extraordinarily clear tones…


Beautifully rich, elegantly musical distortion that very few modern amplifiers possess…


Exceptionally rich, deep voice…


What is hip? This is hip.”

AMPLIFIER NO. 7 REVIEW

Vintage Guitar February 2010
By Phil Feser

“The two distinct voicings produced by the Bright and Normal channels, combined with the Presence control, get you wherever you need to go, tone-wise…


Its heart, soul, and guts are 100 percent solid. This is a straightforward amp with a thick, crunchy tone, and it’s built with top-notch components, assembled right.”

PREMIER GEAR AWARD
AMPLIFIER NO. 7 REVIEW

Premier Guitar January 2010
By Steve Ouimette

“A whollop and kerrang that I’ve never experienced from a little 6V6 amp…


A pure and gorgeous saturated tone that reminded me of a mix of a Superlead and an AC30…


A magic blend of muscle, tone and pure rock and roll…


A great, blooming sound…


Fantastic clean and semi-clean/dirty tones...


Takes pedals like a schooled pro…


The amp had a presence about it that felt both familiar and new at the same time…


More nuance and tone than most amps I’ve played…


It made me wonder why I’d ever need anything else.”
