The 7 Watt Gabriel Stinger

Continuing the Bumblebee trend, this time in a small, all-tubed package, the soul of Gabriel Stinger 7 watt consists of a switchable EL84/6V6 tube power section capable of reproducing legendary tones, made immortal by early '60s British and American bands.
Stinger Head The Stinger is built from the ground up with the same care and quality as its older siblings, the Gabriel V18 and V33.
With months of character refinement and voicing, the tone is brewed to high grades of sublime overdrive flavors all across the volume dial with a grandiose presence and edge.
Beside the fact that the Gabriel Stinger makes a remarkable recording amp, it shines in small-sized clubs and also big venues, where it can be mic'ed up.
It will blow your mind to discover the degrees of tone flexibility that can be achieved with the humble Volume (ROCK) and Tone (THUMP) control. The Gabriel Stinger revives early amp architectures with a modern twist.


Switching EL84 / 6V6 Power Tubes

EL84 / 6V6 Switching

The Stinger speaks two English accents using two tube champions that shaped Rock 'n' Roll from Stone's "Brown Sugar" to Zep's "Whole Lotta Love" and beyond!
EL84 / 6V6 Power Tubes With the power tube Mode Selector you can flip the English "dialect" from proper British (EL84) crunch to champ-ish American slang (6V6) and regulate the amount with the Accent control.
For an interesting twist, you can even combine the two together resulting in a creamy blend of melodic overdrive seldom heard.



Magic Eye VU Meter

And as if the Stinger isn't already packed with old era vibe, features a Magic Eye VU-meter indicator that will pulsate as you play your guitar.
There will be no doubt about it, your amp is ALIVE, and it will gather curious crowds around you at the end of your gigs.

The Front Controls

The Stinger has the bare minimum of controls, but with them you have access to a vast amount of tone flexibility. With only a few turns, you can easily dial in a wide tone spectrum from full bodied, aggressive rock riffs to sublime compressed blues licks.

Magic Eye VU Meter
HI & LO Intrusions: a high and a low impedance input
ROCK: your main control regulating the pre-amp gain
THUMP: a tone control with a dramatic sweep
ACCENT: control the amount of pre-amped signal going into the power amp. Use it in combination with the ROCK control, and you can get some wicked tones
YANK or BRIT MODE: flip between the EL84/6V6 power tubes or have them both combined for a sublime twist.

Rear Ports

With the typical ports, on the rear you'll find extra features for even more tone flexibility.
