The Amplified Nation “SSS” is modeled after Steel String Singer #005, originally built for Eric Johnson and now owned by Carlos Santana. This version of the SSS is 4 x 6550 150w, and the power section is articulate, punchy, and stays clean to some of the highest levels of volume we’ve ever heard. The amp has three-tube reverb, a cathode follower driver, send and return reverb controls, bright and deep boosts, and also a rock/jazz EQ switch.

The Steel String Singer has a punch like you wouldn’t believe. The bass is tight and defined, with soaring “clean-lead” tones. While most guitar amps that are known for “sustain” when using the overdrive channel, the SSS sustain is extraordinary, and can flip notes into feedback without overdrive. It is a remarkable experience to play one of these amps. The tones are very hi-fi and three-dimensional and the clean tones that the SSS provides are unmatched. Preamp boost and FET (additional gain stage) are built into the amp.
