3rd Power has unveiled its new Clean Sink and Dirty Sink amps. These two 1×12 combos are each based on either a Fender/Vox or Marshall circuit. Made in Nashville, USA, these amps both launch at Summer NAMM.
3rd Power Clean Sink and Dirty Sink
Both Clean Sink and Dirty Sink variants are rated at 22 Watts, and each is based on one of the channels from the company’s Kitchen Sink model. The Clean Sink flavour is based on a Fender Blackface/Vox style amp while the Dirty Sink uses a circuit based on a Marshall Plexi-style amplifier.
Clean or Dirty?
The Clean Sink has two preamp signal paths, a black-panel American and an AC with switchable normal and top boost modes. The two signals can also be blended together to give you more tones. It also has an all-tube spring reverb and a Treble Damping circuit as well.
The Dirty Sink is tuned all-round towards Plexi tones and comes with an all-tube Class A FX loop with patch points located on the front panel. 3rd Power says both amps are hand-built PTP on Turret Boards and use Custom Heyboer Transformers along with American-made 12′′ WGS Green Beret speakers.
Both the amps have a set of JJ 6V6GT output tubes and use the company’s proprietary Hybrid-Master volume control. This control fine tunes the output volume level and makes it easier to not blow your head off, but keep your tones intact. The preamp tubes differ slightly, depending on the model: Dirty Sink uses 3 x ECC83 and 1 Sovtek 12AX7 LPS, while the Clean Sink incorporates two of each.
If you want boutique Fender Blackface/Vox AC tones or Marshall Plexi tones and are looking for a quality 1×12 combo, check these new combos out. 3rd Power says the current pricing is an introductory offer and that both amps will be ready for Summer NAMM.
