Soulstice Head

$2,750.00

The Soulstice is a result of a long awaited collaboration with one of our favorite songwriters and guitarists – David Ryan Harris. Named after his 2003 solo release, the Soulstice is a feature-packed amplifier that performs exceptionally well in a wide variety of musical applications.

The Soulstice is an all tube 50-watt 6L6 head with foot switchable on-board tube vibrato and spring reverb. Since many players achieve overdrive with pedals, David included, this amp is designed to be a punchy clean platform that can take pedals like a champ. With higher output guitar pickups or mid-boost pedals, this amp does push into overdrive quite nicely.

The reverb of this amp is deep and lush. Unlike many lower-cost reverb circuits, the reverb has a tube driver and recovery stage. We use a four spring long tank that results in a studio-quality reverb not often found in amplifier heads. The range of this reverb goes from a subtle spring to an ambient wash that won’t drown out the nuances of your playing.

The vibrato circuit in the Soulstice sets this amplifier apart. This is true tube-driven pitch-oscillating vibrato that is extremely musical. With simple Speed and Intensity controls, players can dial in the perfect sound in seconds and find anything from slow, subtle warble to throbbing fast oscillation. David wanted it to be easy to recreate specific sounds without having to tweak controls over and over, so rather than using a variable potentiometer for the speed, we used a rotary selector switch with three presets that David found to be optimal for a wide range of styles.

Description

Slide "Thanks so very much for responding. I spent some time with the amp… beautiful …beautiful sounding amp. I thought I had some great cleans on some other amps... which can now not ever be considered as great cleans to me anymore! Good work!"

- Craig M.
Slide "Hey Daniel, just thought I might let you know that I've been loving the amp so far. Your workmanship is truly incredible and you make spectacular equipment. Your amps look as beautiful they sound. Cheers."

Slide "I'm sure you hear this all the time but I can hardly believe how absolutely incredible this thing sounds!!! It is so articulate and responsive. This is what I have always wanted an amp to sound like. Takes all my dirt and fuzz and weird lo-fi effects so well and never loses focus or becomes muddy. I don't know how you did it, but this amp is damn near perfection and worth every penny. I love the gold light to match the gold on the amp by the way. Thanks again for all the conversations and for making such a great product."

Slide "I spent some time with the amp… beautiful …beautiful sounding amp. Great tone in a super clean, straight forward package. Picked up my first 2x12 Wave cab in early 2015. The WGS Vet 30’s sounds great covering everything from jazz to contemporary Christian to hard rock, blues and my usual genre, jazz fusion. My second cab, a baffled Wave 2x12/10housing one Vet 30 and one 10” Jensen Jet Tornado is crystal clear on clean tones and heavy gain alike. Very happy with all of my Port City products, thanks for making great tone so easy."

Slide "I have owned my Pearl and OS Wave cabinet for 6 months now. It is like playing in hi-fidelity. It lets you hear how your guitars and pedals actually sound!"
