Stone Deaf SD8, 8 Watt Valve Head Stone Deaf SD8, 8 Watt Valve Head

Stone Deaf first burst onto the scene with their brilliant pedal the PDF-1. Now the British manufacturer has turned their attention to amplifiers, with the SD8, an all valve 8 Watt head that you can control digitally! Here is what Stone Deaf have to say: 

The SD8 is an all analogue single class A guitar amplifier that incorporates a digital control system to enable the user to store and recall a wide variety of tonal pallets at the touch of a button across 64 channels / presets. The pre-set bank enables you to store any combination of settings such as EQ, Volume and Gain on 4 banks with up to 64 user-stored presets / channels available (Yes you read that correct 64 channels of your own valve tones!) The SD8 is handcrafted in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom in our small family run factory unit. 

Everything is sourced as locally as possible, the transformers are wound 1.5 miles up the road, the chassis's are manufactured their too, the front anodised panel is manufactured 200 metres down the road, the amplifier head boxes are made in the UK from premium Italian or French Poplar for a 30% weight reduction on the wood cabinetry, the Tolex is supplied from the UK and US, the piping is from the UK. We use Wima Caps, Schaffner power IEC inlets, high-quality tantalum capacitors and resistors. We do all electrical and final assembly in house and only outsource to trusted experts in their field. This is a quality manufactured boutique product proudly manufactured in the UK. Each amplifier comes with 5 years warranty to the original purchaser and life time support. 

The SD8 is game changing valve amp and bridges the gap between valve amplifiers and digital amplifiers and it has the ability to create a vast tonal palette that's easy and intuitive to dial in from its familiar interface. Perfect for recording and home use because of its size and portability.
