NEW S4 PLUS !! Incredibly versatile and light weight 2 channel acoustic amplifier!
If you are looking for a lightweight/portable guitar amp head that also happens to sound true to your instruments tonal qualities, look no further. The Clarus Series 4 works great for bass, electric guitar, archtops, acoustic guitar, and even vocals. At 600 Watts it has clean headroom for days! We find the signal response to be very even across the spectrum. This allows you to amplify your favorite instrument without adding any coloration to the sound. Combo jacks allow you to plug a mic in, even a condenser that needs phantom power! On-board effects, EQ and notch filter really allow you to shape your tone. Combine it with your favorite speaker cab and you are ready to go. It's even dockable into the Acoustic Image EX cabs for extra portability.
Many Sound Pure customers have purchased this amp to pair with the Buscarino Chameleon ext. speaker as well as Raezer's Edge cabinets with amazing results. Ask a Sound Pure guitar expert for advice on one of the best acoustic amps on the market.
The Clarus amps were designed to accurately reproduce the sound of all acoustic and electric instruments without compromise or the size and weight that has traditionally be associated with high quality amplification.
Unlike other solid state amps, the Clarus has a distinct, warm sound, more like a tube amp. In addition, the Clarus is not "voiced" like many electronic instrument amps. So its frequency response is flat. This means that, with a high quality speaker system (like the Contra EX), what you hear is your sound of your instrument. The tonal shaping characteristics of the three-band EQ are sufficient to overcome room acoustics or to shape your sound without adding noise to the signal.
At the heart of the Clarus is a powerful Class D switch mode amplifier that runs cool yet delivers up to 1000 Watts of clean, full spectrum power into speaker loads as low as 2 ohms. Other features include a parallel effects loop with a return level control, a selectable notch or low cut filter for feedback or "boominess" elimination and a balanced direct out with ground lift and pre/post EQ selection to allow connection to a mixing board for PA augmentation or recording. A switch for dual voltage operation (115/230V, 50/60 Hz), a detachable power cord and a padded gig bag with shoulder strap make the unit convenient for the travelling musician.
Clarus amps are for the working player looking for exceptionally clean, natural sound, with wide frequency response and low noise. Carried in one hand, or in the supplied gig bag, they provide an exceptional combination of pure sound reproduction and portability.
