The Vantage Announced at NAMM 2017

For those who require spectacular tone in an uncomplicated format...

With a heritage in British made valve amplification, Hayden Amplification believes their product’s provenance is of the utmost importance. Amongst an industry prepared to spread their manufacturing process overseas, Hayden Amps have solidified their standing for being 100% British - hand-built by skilled engineers, using the finest components.

Hand made in England and wrapped in sumptuous custom covering, Hayden’s Vantage series of valve amplifiers provide unmatched tonal versatility with an unashamed British design styling and performance for those who require spectacular tone in an uncomplicated format.

At the heart of The Vantage lies a truly magical power section made up of 6 x EL84 power tubes, running in Class A –AB1 (cathode bias system). This feature allows guitarists to replace output tubes (should the need arise) without having to call on a tech to re-bias the amplifier. Plug and play at it’s best giving you a great tone, gig after gig. With 45 watts of smooth harmonically rich tone and six differing output power levels the Vantage’s sweet spot is easy to find, whatever the gig.

The Vantage features two channels with independent EQs providing clean, crunch and overdriven tones whilst a 3 spring genuine ‘Accutronics’ tank provides sumptuous valve driven reverb.

A valve driven and recovered FX loop allows for the player’s favourite modulation style FX pedals to run straight into the power amp without loss of quality. The whilst Humbucker and Single Coil inputs allow for perfect instrument matching – further optimising your tone even before you’ve turned your amplifier on.

The special ‘Cascade’ control allows the player to fine tune the level of gain available to channel 2, providing more clean headroom to crunch tones or earlier saturation for overdriven tones.

Within the product line-up in Hayden’s Vantage series is a single head, The Vantage-684H and a 1 x 12” combo, The Vantage C112-684, which is loaded with a Celestion Creamback G12M, however the combo’s speaker can be switched to a Jenson upon special request.

Pair the Vantage Head with Hayden’s new line-up of cabinets including the H-112 - 1 x 12” and H-212 - 2 x 12”, each hand built in the UK and loaded with Celestion Cream-back speakers. These rather special speaker cabs are specially designed to not only compliment the stylish looks of the matching amp head, but also praise the wide tonal possibilities and power of the Hayden guitar amplifier heads - delivering no compromises in terms of tone or performance.

Being built in Hayden’s UK custom shop, each amplifier is specifically made for you and as such, you have the opportunity to further customise your amplifier to suit your style, with a choice of 6 different vinyl colour options as well as various speaker options and configurations.
