Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a Hamstead Artist 20+RT amplifier head in like-new condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original footswitch. Hamstead’s original design that started it all, the Artist 20+RT amplifier encompasses maximum tonal versatility without compromising on quality, delivering everything from shimmering cleans to warm, natural, harmonically-rich overdriven tones. It's powerful, portable, and works brilliantly with pedals and guitars of all types.

Each stage of the circuitry has been carefully refined to provide a wide spectrum of splendid sonics. From the warmest of mellow jazz, through sparkling country cleans, to mean, gritty blues and classic rock drive, the Artist 20 has it covered, all with a depth, clarity, and feel that allows the player's unique personality to shine through. The Output Power selection offers operation at 20, 7 or even a mere 2 watts, without compromising your tone. Turn the Master down more, and all the touch sensitivity and nuance is retained to almost whisper levels, perfect for stage, studio, or practice use.

The Artist 20+RT features the Signature Sinewave Reverb & Tremolo circuits. Both are switchable on the front panel, or via the included footswitch. You can also change the position of these effects in the chain with the flick of a switch. The Reverb features Depth and Tone controls, sculpting a range from bright and splashy to darker, ambient sounds with ease. The Tremolo has Depth and Speed controls, offering a smooth, even sweep and wide range of rates.

Artist 20+RT includes a foot-switchable Voice mode that adds presence and bite to the upper midrange, perfect for solos and cutting clarity in a mix. A three-position Bright switch tailors the amp even more to accommodate the player’s guitar of choice, serving up warmth, chime, or bite as required. Hi and Lo preamp gain presets are selectable on the rear panel. Lo gain provides more preamp headroom for cleaner tones, with Hi gain doing exactly what it says, adding more touch-sensitive saturation as the preamp is pushed into overdrive.
