Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this Verellen Meatsmoke! Verellen amps feature modern build quality, all done by hand, and old-school sounds.

This Meatsmoke is basically the loudest, meanest, grittiest and most well-built amp you're going to find. At 300 watts, there is no venue too big and no music too heavy for this head. We're still recovering from our demo of this amp. It's kind of like an old school SVT, but on steroids. The clean channel can go from smooth, buttery, warm, and tubey bass frequencies to punchy, tight, and growly, and the overdrive channel goes from spastic tonal mayhem to extreme spastic tonal mayhem.

The distortion is rich, powerful and unrelenting but still very musical. Though it was designed as a bass amp, many guitar players have realized that the Meatsmoke works wonderfully as a metal guitar amp with some vintage flavoring as well. Similar to how the SVT was used by bassists and guitarists in the 60's and 70's. If you're looking for serious volume, punch and grit, you're not going to find something that's put together better than the Meatsmoke.

Item Details

The Verellen Meatsmoke puts out 300 tube watts at 2, 4 or 8 ohms. It's loaded with six Tung Sol 6550 power tubes, overbuilt transformers and a fan to cool things off. There are two footswitchable channels. The clean channel can be dialed in for a tubey, clean bass sound or punchy grit, and the overdrive channel puts out low-end rich sustaining overdrive or all out fuzz. The folks at Verellen include a footswitch, because they're awesome like that. There is a no nonsense 3 band EQ, bass and treble shift switches and independent preamp volume and master volume controls for each channel.

The Meatsmoke is built with an attention to detail that is getting increasingly slim these days. Entirely hand-wired and assembled in Seattle, the construction of this head is as rock-solid and powerful as the sound. This is an amp that is built to be played and pushed night after night. The Meatsmoke is for those players who are looking for over the top modern sounds but with old-school build quality. Hands down, one of the best heads around. Get your smoke on!
