on your purchase of the 44 MAGNUM guitar amplifier! The 44 MAGNUM
produces a powerful 44 watts and is small enough to fit in the palm of
your hand. Despite this ampís small size, at 44 watts the 44 MAGNUM will
have no problems being heard at the gig. The 44 MAGNUMís sweet sound
and extreme portability guarantee it to be an integral part of your rig
for rehearsal, recording, or playing out. The 44 MAGNUM was designed
with the guitar in mind and can be used alone, or with your favorite
preamp driving the input to the 44 MAGNUM. The 44 MAGNUM also sounds
great with other instruments such as bass and keyboard. Please read this
manual to become familiar with the correct use of the 44 MAGNUM.
-CONTROLS and JACKS-
VOLUME CONTROL ó This knob controls the volume or loudness of the
amplifier. As you turn the VOLUME knob clockwise, the 44 MAGNUMís output
gets louder. At a certain point in the VOLUME knobís travel the output
will start to overdrive, at this point you are beginning to exceed 44
Watts on your loudest notes. Turning the VOLUME knob further clockwise
will produce a more overdriven sound which is the result of pure power
BRIGHT/NORM CONTROL- When engaged, the BRIGHT switch adds a subtle
top boost or presence to your signal. When in the NORM position, the top
boost is defeated.
INPUT Jack- Plug the output of your guitar, effects pedals or any
other instrument into the INPUT jack using a standard Ē instrument
cable. The input impedance presented at the INPUT jack is 2 Mohm.
8 ó 16 ohm OUTPUT Jack ó Connect the 44 MAGNUMís OUTPUT jack directly to a speaker cabinet. 8 ohm - 16 ohm only.
WARNING: NEVER CONNECT THE OUTPUT OF THE 44 MAGNUM TO THE INPUT OF
ANOTHER AMPLIFIER, AN EFFECTS PEDAL, MIXER, COMPUTER, COMPUTER INTERFACE
OR OTHER SIMILAR DEVICE.
We recommend using a speaker cable between the 44 MAGNUM and speaker
cabinet as you would with any power amplifier, though you can get away
with using an instrument cable if absolutely necessary. The impedance of
the speaker cabinet must be rated between 8 ohm and 16 ohm. 8 ohm is
the ideal load for the 44 MAGNUM. Additionally the speaker cabinet must
have a power rating equal to or greater than the 44 MAGNUMís output
power capability. We recommend a speaker cabinet with at least a 50W
peak rating (or 25W RMS).
WARNING: Make sure the 44 MAGNUMís output is connected to a speaker cabinet before applying power.
24VDC/3A POWER Jack ó Connect the output plug from the 44 MAGNUMís
supplied power supply to the power jack at the top of the unit. Only use
the power supply that the 44 MAGNUM was supplied with. The 44 MAGNUM
requires a power supply capable of delivering at least 2A (more
available current is better) at exactly 24 VDC. DO NOT EXCEED 24 VDC ON
THE POWER JACK, doing so will damage the 44 MAGNUM. DO NOT CONNECT AN AC
POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGE TO THE 44 MAGNUM, USE DC POWER ONLY. The polarity
of the power jack is center positive.
The new 44 Magnum guitar amp head provides 44
watts of clean and natural power but can also deliver a true amplifier
overdrive at the turn of a knob. From your pocket to the stage, the 44
Magnum is the perfect gigging and practice solution. Despite being
described as a ďguitar headĒ the 44 has the character and control to
work with any electric instrument. Flip the brightness switch for a more
defined top end. The sweet tone of our legendary 22 Caliber but with an
extra power edge that can make a difference.
