The Legend Lives:
Strauss valve amplification represents a slice of Australian Rock history.
The story begins in the early sixties when John Woodhead & Gary Nessel came together to form the Strauss Company in Melbourne, Australia. Production of Strauss amplifiers began in 62, with a variety of power amps and cabinets becoming available to the local Melbourne market.
Strauss can be seen on stage at many major music events across the country, such as Sunbury Rock Festival - to Australia what Woodstock was to America. Many notable Australian artists have used the sonic power of Strauss Amplifiers over the past four decades, one such Rock and Roll icon was Billy Thorpe who used the ‘thrust’ of the 300w Warrior amp to send the message that he was the loudest in the land….by far.
Today, Strauss amplifiers are distributed exclusively by Jade Australia.
The Strauss story continues in the present day with new ranges of modern and innovative amplifier designs, one such model is the Strauss SSB-30 Super-Blues 30 Watt Valve Combo Amplifier. The SSB-30 is a single channel tube amplifier with in-built Spring Reverb and it will ensure you are heard loud and clear wherever and whenever you play.
It features two Ruby Tubes 6L6 output valves, three Ruby Tubes 12AX7 preamp valves, and is fitted with a high quality Eminence 12’’ speaker. The top panel features a single input, gain, "FAT" switch, treble, bass, middle, reverb, presence, power amp in, preamp out, standby light, as well as an on/off switch.
The SSB-30 is one of the largest all valve combo amps produced by Strauss, and as suggested by the name "Super Blues", it has been constructed to kick out some serious dirty blues action. When used as your live rig it will not disappoint and will easily keep up with any live band, the heavy duty Eminence 12" Speaker is guaranteed to faithfully reproduce your guitar tone again and again. The SSB-30 also has serious potential in terms of studio recording, whether you are a professional or a home recording enthusiast the SSB-30 will be able to fulfil your recording needs with its expansive tonal landscape. The addition of a "Preamp Out" means you can run straight into a mixing desk or recording device without a microphone, or alternatively it can be used as the "Effect Send" of an effects loop with the "Power Amp In" acting as the "Effect Return".
An added "FAT" Switch can be pressed to boost the preamp gain and add extra distortion and sustain to your tone for super juicy blues tones.
