Your DC-5 amplifier was designed to deliver maximum performance in a format based on simplicity. It's easy-to-dial nature allows each of the two channels to deliver a wide range of sounds in both clean and overdrive styles. The dual caliber uses two 6L6 power tubes to fuel its healthy 50 Watt power section. We are pleased by its surprising headroom yet truly musical clip ability when pushed. The DC-5's preamp was no afterthought. As you may have deduced by the six 12AX7s tucked snugly away under the swing away tube clamp.
