New low-watt guitar amplifiers available from WhiteBox Engineering. Spartan has 25/18 watt output, 2 channels with independent EQ. Read more
This project's funding goal was not reached on March 4, 2013.
About this project
These compact, low-wattage amps are loud, and capable of a wide range of tones from clean to modern high-gain. The preamp features two channels, each with its own EQ controls, and voicing switch. The first channel includes Clean, and Pushed voices, and the second channel has Vintage and Modern voices.
The Spartan's output is a surprisingly loud 25 watts, and each channel can be set at full or half power separately. Channels can be changed either by front panel or the included footswitch.
An effects loop with a hard bypass switch rounds out the feature set. Heavy-duty components are used throughout, and construction is first-rate. This first run will be hand-numbered.
We can achieve this feature set and quality level at a price of only $399 since the amps are available directly from the factory to the guitarist with no additional mark-ups.
Spartan is a great-sounding, versatile, giggable amp, and a great value!
Risks and challenges
I've built many guitar amplifiers at a number of factories over the past several years, and I have the process well ironed out. The design is complete, tested, and ready for production - all we have to do is reach the necessary quantity to start the build. So the risks are pretty low - if we meet our funding goal, we can build some nice guitar amps at a great price, and if we don't meet the goal, there's no cost to you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
