Completely revolutionary palm-sized all-tube guitar amplifier with one-half watt of roaring tube power! Startlingly rich overtones from any 8-16 ohm cabinet. Really must be heard to be believed. Comes with 12 volt wall wort. Contains its own 230 VDC high-voltage supply for high-voltage tube crunch. Carry it in your guitar case! Great for recording…sits right by your computer!
- Bright switch: Brighter to the right. Has more effect at lower volumes, like a Fender bright switch.
- Volume: Adjusts from quite clean to very crunchy/dirty.
- Thickness: Positions are Normal, Thin, and Fat. As you use more gain, you may wish to thin out the signal. The fat setting is best for clean shivery tones and overblown bass fuzz.
- Mellow control: Positions are Mellow 2/Normal/Mellow 1. Use it to roll off treble if needed after first distortion stage. Mellow 2 is mellower, naturally, and Normal is brightest.
- Cooling fan: Yes, as unbelievable as it may seem, there is a one-inch cooling fan in the Nano Head. DO NOT BLOCK FAN. Also, if you sit too close, fan noise may bleed into pickups. This appears as a whining tone. Move a few inches further away or twist slightly and it will disappear. The fan keeps the 230 volt power supply and the tubes and caps cool.
- Internal speaker: This is a bit of a joke… it is only useful if you really, really have to listen to it without a cabinet. Don’t expect too much from it… it’s made of plastic! You can tilt the amp or turn it over to hear the speaker better. What an annoying sound, huh?
- “Hot” red LED: The Nano Head has a self-resetting fuse that blows if the power supply stalls. This can happen if the input power is interrupted and reconnected, or if the DC power sags too low, such as a battery dying. Disconnect the amp for a few minutes and try again if the “Hot” LED comes on. The self-resetting fuse has to have time to cool before it will work again.
- For best results, use with a 16 ohm (or 8 ohm) cabinet. I prefer a Marshall/Orange 4X12 or a Vox extension cabinet, but try anything you like.
- Your Nano perfers a startup temperature of 65 degrees F (18 degrees C) or more. If it is cold, the unit may have difficulty starting. Warm it up first! You may wish to store it somewhere warm, like near a radiator or by some gear that’s always on.
