Powerful tone-shaping

The Subzero Saturn-50VR 2 Channel Tube Head allows you to sculpt your sound with dedicated 3-band EQ for both of the channels. These frequency points have been specifically chosen by our team of specialists to ensure the process is as simple as adding/subtracting low, mid and high frequencies to taste. There’s also a ‘Bright’ switch for the clean channel for additional high-end sparkle, giving you an even deeper level of versatility. Optimise your setup by running modulation, delay or reverb pedals within the integrated FX loop, allowing you to experiment with placing effects before or after amplification. This makes it the ideal amp head for both the purist who favours great tone directly from the amp, or the pedal enthusiast who prefers to run extensive post effects. There’s no messing around here, just plug-in and instantly obtain huge tones.

Dual channel versatility

  • Clean– The clean channel is warm and precise, ideal for when clarity is key. Hear every detail of your playing with sparkling treble, punchy mids, and a rounded bass response. This makes the channel a perfect pedal platform due to the lack of colouration to your tone. This transparency allows your pedals to perform to their fullest extent so you hear the end of every delay trail, every moment of ringing sustain, or the final whoosh of a phaser. Well-suited to players who appreciate precise articulation and immaculate clarity.
  • Drive– The drive channel is a tameable beast. By pushing the 6l6 vacuum tubes to the point of breakup, this brings out rich saturation, sweet sustain, all with as much grit as you care to dial-in. If your solo’s need a lift or you’re just seeking a tone with a bit more of a kick- this channel delivers in abundance. With a notably thick, rich voicing, chords will sound fuller with added harmonics and your lead lines will really start to sing. Cranking the gain increases the aggression and ferocity, allowing you to go from a snarl to a growl. At higher levels, this caters well to heavier genres for those seeking powerful high gain tones, with a controlled low frequency response.

Real spring reverb

In an age where most reverbs in amplifiers are digital, the Saturn-50VR stands well above its peers. The beauty of an all analog spring reverb is your performances will never sound the same twice, the head will respond accordingly to the part you play, adding a unique sense of depth and dimension to your sound. Not only will lead lines soar, this head can take your tone right back to the ‘50s and ‘60s, injecting pure vintage mojo into your sound. Combined with the characterful sound of valve amplification, coaxing a range of phenomenal tones out of this head couldn’t be easier- from vintage warmth to high-gain saturation, anything will feel possible.

Built to last

Valves can be unpredictable. However, the integrated standby switch featured on the Saturn-50VR is here to provide peace of mind. This allows the head’s tubes to heat up before use, preserving their life span and offering an optimised tone you can rely on. Reinforced by the overall robust design for additional durability and it becomes apparent this is an amp head you can rely on to deliver outstanding tones, time and time again.
