Port City Pearl


When most think of a Pearl, something simple, beautiful and rare comes to mind. In the age where many companies are producing over-processed, multi channel amps, Port City Amplifiers is happy to offer the Pearl. Simple, beautiful and clean. Many players today rely on pedals to achieve their overdriven tone. In that case what is needed is a pure, rich and dynamic clean tone to lay the foundation.

Space on many stages is at a premium. The large rigs of decades past are not practical for most gigging musicians. The Pearl is perfect for those tight stages measuring only 20″ W x 9″ T x 8″ D. It pairs perfectly with the Port City 2×12 and 1×12 OS Wave cabinets.

Finally, there is the perfect option for a simple, clean, mid-wattage guitar amp all in a cabinet that doesn’t require a roadie.

The Port City Pearl features:

  • Volume, treble, middle and bass controls
  • Bright switch
  • 2 – JJ 6L6 power tubes
  • 3 – JJ preamp tubes
  • 50 watts
  • JJ GZ34 Rectifier
  • Tube buffered FX loop

The Port City Pearl is handmade in North Carolina using only the highest quality components such as Mojo Dijon capacitors, carbon film resistors, custom USA made transformers, PVC coated copper wire and Switchcraft jacks. The Pearl head enclosure is crafted from ¼” inch finger jointed solid pine. The Pearl head weighs 28 lbs.
