‘Gamehendge’ Phish Tribute Amp

The SeQuel VERMONT guitar amplifier. Our homage to the great Johnny Smith. Named after his seminal album titled “Moonlight In Vermont” released in 1952 with a nod to the music he created and amps he continued to influence throughout his career. Johnny Smith’s recorded sound evolved over time reflecting changes in technology. However throughout his professional career, he was unwaveringly specific in his views on how an amplifier should sound, specifically for archtop guitars. And he held to these views with both tube|valve and solid state circuit designs. Johnny had deep respect for the archtop guitar advocating it as a unique instrument a breed apart from flat-top, classical/flamenco, and certainly solid-body guitars. He wanted a highly balanced sound that didn’t exaggerate any particular frequencies, strings or notes. Championing a neutral, un-hyped, somewhat audiophile approach specifically for amplifying archtop guitars, Johnny eschewed the far more common Fender/Marshall/Vox “voicing” for this unique application. He joked about how with his amplifier voicing turning the Bass control to “10” was like a Fender amp’s Bass EQ knob set to “0!” A slight exaggeration perhaps but Johnny was making the point that the vast majority of electric guitar amplifiers are purposefully colored and intended to electronically enhance the sound of solid body instruments rather than amplifying the inherent tone of an archtop guitar. In the SeQuel VERMONT, we’ve wholeheartedly embraced Johnny Smith’s ideas and ideals while also remaining open to modern state-of-the-art circuit topographies. Then adding a few respectful thoughts of our own. Rather than cloning the past, we looked to the future and took a less traveled path. As Johnny would have hopefully encouraged, in the VERMONT hybrid we’ve created a respectful interpretation that at once embodies Johnny’s philosophy while also embraces modern day audio technology to reproduce a high quality 3D dimensional sound that reflects an archtop guitar faithfully and beautifully…and allows for ease of maintenance/reliability. After several months of gestation, the VERMONT has evolved as a hybrid housed as a compact 1×12 combo with a medium gain tube|valve preamp and a 200-watt @ 8-ohm Class D power section. Non-interactive Bass and Treble controls that allow for tonal flexibility. Spring reverb for “that” vintage sound. Very quiet self-noise floor suitable for studio recording yet able to achieve extremely high SPLs when required. Extremely light weight! Whatever “it” is subjectively, when you connect to the VERMONT’s silky preamp, muscular power section, and sonically revealing components there’s an agile athlete inside waiting to help you play quietly or loudly at the stroke of your pick or fingers…responsive is the word that comes to mind. You’ll hear depth and articulation in your guitar that you might have missed before. Plus the overtones are gorgeous. “With the VERMONT, the balance of low to hi is unbelievable.  The low end is tight, and the upper register is clean and acoustic.  But, the middle of range is just superb.  And as you know, that’s our bread and butter.  The balance is spot-on all across the fretboard range.  Every note is balanced and accounted for.  It also has very little colorization, so it sounds [just] like my Benedetto.” – Brian Nova The SeQuel VERMONT is a very special amplifier reflecting the teachings of a Master and specifically conceived for archtop jazz guitar. We’d like to think that Johnny Smith himself would have wholeheartedly approved. And we highly suspect that you’ll agree too…once you plug in! The VERMONT is an amplifier that is an equal partner to your guitar with which you can play most any Jazz gig in any Jazz club from solo to ensembles, to a B3 Organ trio, to Big Bands and in Orchestras. So here it is at last. The SeQuel VERMONT. Simply Special. Easy to operate. Sonically flexible. Low maintenance. Compact dimensions 18″ x 16″ x 10″ and highly portable weighing only about 22 pounds. Beautiful to look at as it is inspiring to play. Universal power main. Works with both 115v and 230v models for worldwide operation. Comes with a padded cover.

I’m calling it the Gamehendge, Phish tribute guitar amplifier.  Completely unique, one of one.  I know I haven’t seen anything like it. 

Like anything around here, it’s almost entirely built by hand. I meticulously cut out the polkadots by hand. The Gamehendge and Raezers Edge logo were CNC routed and then I filled it with epoxy.

The amp itself is a Raezers Edge Centauri Hybrid amp, which normally retails for $1099.

1×12 with a 200 watt solid state power section with a 12AX7 tube running in true high voltage to really give it that authentic tube like tonality.
3 band EQ with Bass / Mids / Treble highly reminiscent of a Fender Blackface. The Deluxe Reverb amp has been a big part of Trey’s rig.
Short tank spring reverb that sounds amazing.
Loaded with an Eminence Wheelhouse 150 neo guitar speaker.

Insanely lightweight at just 22 pounds, this amp kicks ass.  Awesome clean tone and loads of headroom making it an ideal pedal platform for both of your tube screamers 😉

Comes with a padded cover.
