HELIOS ECLIPSE


New for June 2018! Finally, here's all you need to know about the new Eclipse, that has kept everybody in the dark!

Reinhold took the roots of the Helios through a sonic time machine to create a more modern version. Even though they are brothers by sharing the same power amp design, the pre amp circuit and control layout makes them essentially two different amplifiers, each with it's own purpose and valid applications.

The Eclipse utilizes up to 6 gain stages which go far beyond 11.
You are welcome! Enjoy! And try to keep it legal!


The ECLIPSE features the same hand-wired construction with three direct accessible channels via the included foot controller. The tube buffered effects loop has been reworked so pedal effects can handle the added gain stages of channel 2 and 3. The two gain channels each have two individual 3 position switches to tailor the gain structure for a variety of tones and feels.
Available as a 100 watt head with EL34 power tubes, the amp comes standard in the smaller (50W) head enclosure.
