Jackson Newcastle 30 Amplifier Head
Like the original NewCastle, the NewCastle 30 is a simple tone machine that will cover everything from pristine British clean to straight up Rock and everywhere in between. The clean tones are rich and full of authority with sparkling highs that never become brittle or piercing. The low end was specifically designed to remain tight and punchy even when cranked so you’ll never lose definition when playing at loud volumes. The NewCastle 30 adds to the NewCastle’s tone with increased headroom and low end punch and clarity.
Tonally the NewCastle 30 has an English heritage but is cleaner and more robust than many EL84 based amps. The NewCastle 30 is perfect for the player that uses a lot of pedals and wants an affordable clean platform to work from. In fact the NewCastle 30 remains clean up till around 2:00 on the Volume control and from there breaks up into the most musical
overdrive you have ever heard!
One of the best features of the NewCastle 30 is how well it cleans up when you roll the volume on your guitar down. With the NewCastle 30 you may find that you don’t need your overdrive pedals anymore as the volume control on your guitar asks like a gain control on the amp depending on how hard you play. In fact, you may find that your favorite setting
is to leave the Volume up all the way on the amp and use your guitars volume to vary between your clean and dirty tones! Couple this with its very effective Tone control, and the NewCastle 30 can morph between pristine clean, hard rock and warm smooth jazz tones with ease!
