About this Joyo Atomic Bantamp Series 20 Watt Guitar Hybrid-Tube Amp Head - British Clean
The AtomiC from Joyo's BantamP series is a very compact and portable 20 Watt head.
There are a few amps that have remained almost unchanged throughout the years. We immediately think of some American classics, but one amplifier stands out. There is this amp that gives you the British clean sound, the one that has hollow mids and a beautiful bell like character. This amp delivers a brilliant bite and has shaped the history of rock music through the ages.
Its drive channel has a great mid gain sound and is just perfect for pop/rock sounds and indie rhythms. The Atomic brings all of that history into your living room in a very compact way. Youll be amazed by the crystal clear cleans and the cutting drive sounds.
The amp operates with a single 12AX7 tube in the preamp and uses a solid state power amp. The FX loop enables you to put your time based effects (or Phasers, Flangers and Choruses) behind the drive section and keep the effects sharp and not prevent them from being too muddy. The CLEAN channel can take pedals really well, which makes it flexible and a great little companion for many situations where your big head is just not sensible.
The amp has a speaker out rated at 8, but can also be operated at 16 with less power.
Careful, the amp is small but loud. its 20 Watts can be quite a handful. If you want to practice quietly, use the built-in headphone out with speaker emulation.
The icing on the cake is the BLUETOOTH connectivity. Easily connect with your BLUETOOTH enabled device and play music through the BantamP. This is great to practice with Play-Alongs or to learn songs.

Tone in a small packageI don't normally review products but I've been very impressed by this little box. It can produce an amazing range of sounds for such a simple unit. I'm running it through a 10inch 30 watt celestion greenback in a home made solid marine ply cab. Add a reverb unit and it's good for hours of fun. It's not as loud as a full valve 20 watts would be but that's expected. To my ear it sounds best with humbuckers - a bit lacking in depth with single coils.

Joyo Bantamp AtomicAbsolutely love this amp. Nails the AC30 tone. I added a reverb pedal in the chain and am so happy with the result. I have actually gigged a small room with it. Service from Artist Guitars was as usual spectacular.
