Trinity Tramp Kit
The Tramp is a special design that incorporates extreme, useful flexibility with distinct amp voices and plenty of features. With a simple pull of a switch, you can go from Tweed to ‘Tude; another pull switch and you can play Fat or Thin. Using the Volume, Master Volume and Power Level controls along with Bass and Treble, achieves tonal nirvana! The design supports 6V6, 6L6, KT66, EL34, 6CA7 and KT88 power tubes so you can swap the single power tube for added gigging volume and headroom. Power output is approximately 6W with a 6V6, or 12W with the bigger tubes. It is available in typical combo or optional head format.
The Tramp is effectively two amps in one, which you can alternate between with the simple pull of a switch. It was intended to cover all the bases from Clean to Dirty, and all the possible shades in-between – and it delivers an amazing tonal range in doing so. In Tweed mode, it’s heritage is 5x series Tweed Princeton or Champ, with the additional benefit of Treble-Bass tone controls. Tweed is smooth and creamy with a welcome warmth, vintage voice but with a little more solidity and clarity. It is full of soul and you can really hear the Fender heritage. In Tweed mode, the Volume control is usable through it’s entire travel – gorgeous cleans around 5/6 on the dial, slight break-up around 7/8, and an amazing humming drive at 9/10. Everything you want in the classic Tweed amp spectrum, from clean to dirty, is right here.
In ‘Tude mode, the Tramp exceeds what you could traditionally achieve with the simple two-tube amp format. The sound opens up with an astonishing clarity and extended range of clean and distorted sounds. ‘Tude glows with all of its harmonic content, and grinds when the guitar gets wound up. Harmonic haze’ is what it’s all about in the clean parts of ‘Tude – gorgeous! Just a little hair on the tone for presence with all these overtones swirling around it and a nice solid foundation. Cranked up, it’s complex, raw and edgy but still under control, and smooth but in an aggressive way – there’s tone right to the top.
