* The PowerStage 700 is a revolutionary power amp designed specifically for guitarists using modelers, pedals, and effects processors to create their tone.

* It provides features that not only make this an ideal tool for the stage, but also for the studio.

The PowerStage 700 is the perfect companion for the current crop of amp modelers and effects processors. With discrete stereo ins and outs you can reproduce your carefully crafted amp sounds in massive detail, with power, clarity and a warmth that will take even state-of-the-art modeled tones to the next level.

And with the True Cab Circuitry (TCC)™ on the XLR line outputs, you can send your tone direct to the front of house – with all the feel and response of a speaker – even as you monitor through a cabinet onstage.

When you create your tone from a modeler, pedals or effects processor, what you want is a clean, transparent power source that brings your tone to life. With PowerStage, you can bring your whole rig to the gig without compromising your sound.

Another huge benefit of the PowerStage is its musically voiced 3-band EQ. This allows you to fine-tune your sound, quickly and with precision, without scrolling through menus or editing patches.

Such a powerful and intuitive tone shaping tool at the very end of your signal chain makes it easy to maximize your tone for any situation. 

For guitarists who use pedals to create their sound, PowerStage is the missing link in your signal chain. Run your favorite distortion pedal into PowerStage and then simply bypass it and let it become your ultimate clean channel, turning any pedal combo into a two-channel amp that delivers your perfect tone.

* And it can plug into any cabinet at any impedance anywhere in the world, thanks to its versatile 100v-240v power supply.


* The PowerStage 170 will give you reliable, musical power on every gig, eliminating the uncertainty that backline amps can bring. Simply bring your guitar and your pedalboard and get your tone through whatever cab is provided.

* The 170’s intuitive 3-band analog EQ allows for quickly fine-tuning your sound for any cabinet and any venue— no need to wrestle with the cumbersome and ineffective EQs on digital gear or modify your stompbox settings.

You can even adjust the big Master Volume knob with your foot, boosting solos and controlling dynamics in real time.

And when you bypass your overdrive and distortion boxes, it will function as your clean channel, with the sweet, warm sound that we associate with great amps.

Setting up the PowerStage 170 is effortless. Simply plug your pedals, effects processor, or modeler into the “input” of your PowerStage 170, and plug the PowerStage 170 into your favorite cabinet.

The PowerStage is fully equipped with internal impedance adjustment and is compatible with any cabinet – 4 ohms to 16 ohms, 1x12 to 4x12 and anything in between.

Imagine the freedom of showing up at a gig with a streamlined, lightweight rig that you can get up and running in under five minutes, with the confidence that comes from knowing that you will have your sound, no matter what.

Forget about cartage, forget about complicated setups, forget about backline issues and think about the PowerStage 170.
