The Charlemagne is by far the largest of the Hendyamps Single Ended line, packing a massive 20w punch. This amp has a ton of headroom, but also boasts a full, rich overdrive that can match well with nearly any combination of guitars and pickups.

The preamp of this amp runs three 12ax7’s in a very unique way that combines stacking cathode followers with one of the most versatile EQ’s ever placed in a guitar amp. Using the gain control to manipulate the level of volume and saturation, this preamp allows for a substantial amount of clean headroom, but also is able to be pushed into overdrive quite naturally. The EQ provides controls for Lows, Mids, and Highs, but also includes a control (Mid Shift) that allows the user to manipulate the entire shape of the EQ, providing for an infinite amount of options. If that were not enough, there is also a switch that allows the user to retain pristine clarity in the high frequencies, or cut out the highest frequencies, as well as a rotary control that cuts as much of the low frequencies out of the signal as desired. With these options, this amp can easily conform to any combination of guitar, pickups, and pedals with ease.

Power Amp
The Charlemagne’s power section is comprised of a single KT88 pushing a full 20 watts through a massive output transformer rated for up to 30 watts of ultra-linear sonic bliss! This power amp retains the Class A, Single Ended tone that has delighted guitarists for decades, but provides the punch and volume of a Push Pull amp. This power amp has more clarity and punch than you would ever believe a Single Ended amp could have!

Power Supply
The Charlemagne’s power supply is centered around maintaining a very high plate voltage for its KT88 and a very tight and quick response.

The Charlemagne is available as an Amp Head, 1x12 Combo , or 2x12 Combo
