KAT Studio-One Guitar Amplifier Unboxing & Features - For Brian May Tone at Home



Published
In this video I unbox and show you around the Studio-One 1W RMS guitar amplifier developed by Nigel Knight of Knight Audio Technologies (KAT) for people who want to emulate the distinctive Queen tones achieved by Brian May from his Vox AC30 amplifiers but in domestic environments or small venues. It is hand assembled by Nigel, weighs 6 kg and measures just 385 x 290 x 170 mm. It has three vacuum tubes (valves), 1 x ECC82 and 3 x ECC83 and an integral six position attenuator and is strongly reminiscent in appearance and construction of a Vox AC30.
