3 Monkeys Amps Orangutan Head

This is one of our absolute favorite tube guitar amplifiers!

The Orangutan from Three Monkeys is a dynamic, four 6V6 tube guitar amplifier with a unique six position rotary VOICE switch that changes both the gain structure and the tone as you rotate it clockwise. The VOLUME control interacts with the VOICE switch to produce shimmering cleans and smooth overdriven tones. The BASS is more like a global low frequency control, while the TREBLE acts as a cut. The LIFT switch disables the BASS control to provide boost and clarity. ROOM is a focused reverb, no surf wash here. While this amp is no high-gain monster, it is rooted in the classic tones of 70's rock. Not trying to specifically mimic any one amp, the Orangutan has it's own distinctive voice, suited for both stage and studio.
