The Verbmaster is made to be played loud, with a hand-wired 12AX7 preamp and EL84/5U4 power amp providing vivid tones and dynamic gain interplay. An extra tube stage on the High Gain input overdrives the preamp, increasing the tonal range of the Verbmaster. The Verbmaster is completely hand wired in the U.S.A. using high-grade audio components, with a straightforward feature set in an 18-watt, 1x12 combo format.
The amplifier's namesake reverb, driven by 12AT7 and 12AX7 tubes, is divided into two settings - Sand and Surf - and features a global level control that governs the amount of reverb added to the mix for both settings. The "Sand" reverb setting has a high-frequency rolloff, while "Surf" has a decidedly sparkly top end.
