GIG50

The first valvestate set-up designed for archtop guitars

We decided to build a unique set up made of two pieces, Head and Cabinet for two reasons: to divide the weight of the amplification and to allow you to change the timbre choosing between a Sapele or a Maple cabinet.

 NO COMPROMISES ON QUALITY AND PRACTICALITY

GIG50FS-brown-sapele-tonewood

Technology, design and a high fidelity sound allows you to hear the voice of your instrument without changing his soul

From now on, you guitar and your amplification will speak the same language

Which one do you prefer?

Customize as you wish,
your imagination is the only limit!

We choose the most resonant boards for the Cabinet,
the most beautiful for the Head.

Let nature surprise you

Two controls, volume and tone, in the most extreme version, three if you want our built in tube reverb.
Technology, design and a high fidelity sound allow you to hear the voice of your instrument the way it really sounds acoustically, yet with added warmth and depth.

Your fingers’ sole concern will be triggering emotions.

because less is more

The warmth of the tube’s sound, the light weight and the modern design.
A new interpretation of the technology that made history

GLB Sound - amplification lutherie - GIG50 - valvestate amp - tubes - guitar - archtop amplification

The two handles and the holes carved in the wood let the head breathe.
The perfect match between design and technology

Leather piping tailor made to define the profile of head and cabinet at their best.
Because we love fine details

“Great jazz tone is made by finger and wood
on my guitar and now in my amplification.
Now it could be possible thanks to
the incomparable GIG50”

GIG50 IN STUDIO


GIG5S is a perfect solution for recording studios. For its high performance it has been chosen by Artesuono Recording Studio.

Amazing sound, extremely quiet, powerfull, all-tube, light and easy to carry. The head is customizable with different tubes. No more anonymous amplifiers in MDF covered with black vinyl, which produce more noise than sound … Besides being beautiful, GIG50 has great sound! Guitarists will be thankful!”
