AMPLIFIER NO. 8

25w Master Lead

Amplifier No. 8's unique Drive circuit controls more than gain. It tailors the overall response of the amp, tightening up the low end as you turn it up, allowing for massive overdrive without mush while ensuring that cleans remain full, not thin.


Like all BC Audio amps, Amplifier No. 8 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.

AMPLIFIER NO. 8 REVIEW

Guitar Player February 2012
By Darrin Fox

“A beautifully slick, streamlined tone machine…


[The] ticket to total titillation…


A ton of frothy gain…


String-to-string clarity is breathtaking…


Rich, musically compressed, chimey...sweet…


Very touch sensitive.”

AMPLIFIER NO. 8 REVIEW

The ToneQuest Report October 2011

“Much bigger, richer and less compressed than any 18 or 20 watt Marshall or clone.


There isn’t a bad tone to be found in this amp.


So thick and juicy.


Intense distortion and vivid overtones.


Huge and magnificent with tremendous low end, mids, and a super smooth treble voice. No. 8 is a fatty, pure and simple.”

AMPLIFIER NO. 8 REVIEW

Premier Guitar December 2010
By Steve Ouimette

“Capable of a startlingly wide spectrum of sounds…


A capacity for overdrive that’s stunning for an amp of such simplicity…


Pick articulation and clarity was stunning…


Chiming clean tones…


As much sustain as I needed that bloomed gorgeously…


A rounder, thicker character than any of my Marshalls…


Huge tone in a small package…


The workmanship and build quality is worthy of a museum piece…


An amp you can count on.”
