If you’re looking at this amplifier, you might feel it doesn’t need an explanation. You’re probably right, the SSS 100 is THAT good, but humor us…. It took us YEARS and tens of thousands of USD to get access to this amplifier. But we did it. We all but sold our souls, but it was well worth it.
The Ceriatone SSS 50W is a lower wattage version clone of a specific high volume, high power, high headroom clean amplifier. Who knew clean tones could have this much testosterone? We sure didn’t. The 100W model is also available for those of you who have no eardrums left!
With all of the tonal options the SSS holds, we would be surprised if you couldn’t find a tone in this amp that you didn’t LOVE. And don’t be surprised when you engage the FET boost and start experiencing one of the better crunch tones of any “D” amplifier. Unlike some particular “SSS” amps, mortals can actually play the one we cloned without sounding like a chump.
*Due to the complexity of the build and the amazing interest in this model, the lead time is approx. 5-6 months on the SSS.
