CALI is a 3-channel tube amp bringing you sweet lush cleans to crushing gain brutality

SKU: Cali50w Category: Tags: , , ,

Limited Production Run, Discontinued

We are pleased to present our newest weapon of sonic destruction, the CALI! CALI is an all-tube, 50 watt, 3-channel amplifier, that brings you sweet lush cleans to crushing gain brutality. The CALI features a clean channel, and two gain channels that have assignable VIOLENCE 4th gain stage from the FORTIN KILLER KALI ++ that can be added to either overdrive channels for more searing gain.  The CALI is an extremely versatile amplifier, with a nod to vintage British voicing, that also puts forth the blistering modern high-gain tones Fortin are known for delivering. Given the high-demand for the Cali and KK++ mods in the past, we wanted to cover all the best features in a single 3-channel amplifier, making it ideal for live use,  smaller/lighter-weight format, and all the best features from all the variations.

    We have the Cali 50 head and it sounds amazing.
    The clean tones are perfect and you can dial in any type of grit .
    I love the fact Fortin does limited runs, this helps us buyers by protecting our investment. Smart business, great job Erin
