While the design and manufacture of big amplifiers is probably best left to the big companies, we at Halliday Guitars believe that there is a need for great sounding low powered tube amps. A small amp can deliver sound levels that are manageble for playing at home while driving the tubes into break-up, and when close miked delivers huge sound for the studio or on stage through a PA.

The Trumbull is a 5 Watt single-ended design powered by one 6V6 tube that builds on great small amp designs from the past. With tube rectification from a 5Y3, there is a high degree of touch sensitivity and compression. One 12AX7 preamp tube provides the gain while a second gives tube-driven vibrato with variable rate and depth. A three-way preamp voicing switch gives the player the option of classic 50s sounds, full frequency boosted sounds common to American amps of the 60s and 70s, or boosted upper mids common to British amps. Built as a head, the Trumble is equipped with an impedance switch for matching to your favorite speaker cabinet from 2 to 16 Ohms.
