The Satellite Amps Gammatron is a 2.8 watt bedroom amp that has a giant stadium's worth of smashed guitars and full stacks at its core. Adam Grim, the man behind Satellite Amplifiers, loves old amps. Marshalls, Fenders, weird quirky little circuits that are more intercom than amp? Yep. If it's old, has a circuit, and makes noise, Adam has torn it apart and turned it into a guitar amplifier. The man has a tacky faux fireplace that doubles as a record player and wet bar...so he tore the record player apart and built one of his fire-breathing amps right into the fireplace. What was a doomed relic of 60's kitsch is now the center of his shop (and favorite display when he sees fit to lug it to a trade show). Somewhere in that love of old circuits and loud amps is where the Gammatron was born. A low volume amp that sounds and feels like a much larger, vintage amp. More than that, it sounds like a Satellite - vintage and organic. Quirky and mean as hell. Beautiful and rich or focused and raspy, it's unusually responsive to your fingers. This amp is instantly familiar and immensely fun to play. When Adam was first telling me about the Gammatron, he described it as "punchy and harmonically rich." Builders say lots of things about their babies; usually I don't quote them. But I never found a better, simpler, or more accurate description of the Gammatron.
