Introducing the Shaman Series of all-tube amplifiers

January 12, 2015

We're extremely proud to announce that Panama Guitars' first line of all-tube amps, the Shaman Series, is now shipping to dealers and will hit shelves soon.

Starting at $599.99, the Shaman Series is designed for maximum tonal flexibility with no sacrifices. The first of the line, the Shaman 20, delivers the ultimate in flexibility, from '50s cleans and hot-rodded British tones, to fire-breathing modern metal. This little beast does it all in a compact cabinet handcrafted in Panama from sustainably harvested exotic tonewoods. It features 2 fully independent footswitchable channels (“Clean” and “Unclean”) each with independent Master, Presence, Bass, Mid, Treble, Gain and 2 switchable voicing modes covering a range of tones from classic tweed and blackface cleans to hot-rodded British and ultra-modern high-gain, with a shared, hard-bypassable effects loop and a selectable 10/20 Watt EL84 Power Section.

The Shaman Retro 20 is the same amp as the Shaman 20 but designed to deliver a more specifically vintage experience. The Shaman Retro still has plenty of gain on tap but avoids the more modern tonality in favor of a more nuanced vintage flavor, still in a compact cabinet handcrafted in Panama from sustainably harvested exotic tonewoods. It features 2 fully-independent footswitchable channels each with independent Master, Bass, Treble, Gain, and 2 switchable clean and 3 unclean voicing modes covering a range of tones from classic tweed and British cleans to hot-rodded British and 80s brown-sound, with a shared bypassable effects loop and a selectable 5/10/20 watt power EL84 Power Section.

Come check out the Shaman's debut at the NAMM Show from January 22nd - 25th in Anaheim, California.
