At the request of many players, we decided to try if we could combine the tones of our Hot Rodded Plexi series with a lower output section and smaller footprint. It took a great deal of experimentation, but the Son of Yeti rocks (and much more).
We started by adjusting the preamp of the Yeti and worked at combining it with a lower powered output tube. 6V6s yielded the best tone AND were most versatile, so we felt like we had a real winner. The Son of Yeti has the tone and versatility of its big brothers, but with a sweeter and perhaps more vintage-feeling power section. Don’t sleep on the Son for amazing blues rock tones!
Like other Ceriatone amps, we have labored carefully to select the finest components to suit the design, and the Son of Yeti uses our specially designed, custom transformers for superior reliability, frequency response, and feel.
