Presenting the all new Two-Rock Akoya 50 Watt Limited Edition 4x10 Combo.
After consulting with numerous artists, Bill Krinard set out to develop an amp that would deliver Two-Rock performance and the feel of a vintage amp – all in one amp. What he and his team developed is a fully adjustable Two-Rock front-end with the feel and forgiveness of a classic blackface amplifier. This tone should be familiar to nearly every guitar player, yet has the refinements of a Two-Rock.
To celebrate the birth of the Akoya Two Rock produced 10 Limited Edition 4x10 combos including this one with special features:
• Each Limited Edition is built with their classic Two-Rock board material, NOS Sprague Orange Drop caps, and Sylvania short bottle 6L6GC tubes from the 80’s.
• Each master built Limited Edition model comes with black western tolex, sparkle matrix grill cloth, and will include keepsake Certificate of Authenticity.
• Each Limited Edition is be signed and tweaked by Two-Rock designer/founder Bill Krinard
"We designed this amp to balance nicely with your guitar, making the interaction between the tone and volume pot on the guitar a more seamless interaction with the Gain and Master controls on the amp."
The Clean Gain, Master, and Reverb are grouped together, and the OD Gain, OD Master and OD Reverb are also grouped together for ease of use.
The Presence control has been refined for a broader EQ range.
The Tube Tremolo is the same classic circuit Two-Rock created for the Matt Schofield Signature amplifier.
Two-Rock created a “Tone Boost.” This switch is a secondary EQ setting that will increase overall gain on both channels, essentially creating a boost on the tone stack (unlike our traditional Bypass that bypasses the tone stack altogether.)
The cabinet design has also been optimized with a new wood type. During development Two-Rock experimented with several different types of wood and settled on a furniture grade poplar ply that brought the amp to life with a more percussive and lively sonic quality.
