Description

Designed as the most simple amp they could make, the Jackson Ampworks NewCastle is a testament to the saying, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Once you plug into the NewCastle you'll understand why less is more when you hear the true voice of your guitar the way it was meant to sound. No channel switching, effects loops, boost modes or EQ's; just 100% pure tube amp tone!

 

PERFECT TONE - SIMPLIFIED

The NewCastle is a simple tone machine that will cover everything from pristine British clean to straight up Rock and everywhere in between.The clean tones are rich and full of authority with sparkling highs that never become brittle or piercing. The low end was specifically designed to remain tight and punchy even when cranked so you’ll never lose definition when playing at loud volumes.

Tonally the NewCastle has an English heritage but is cleaner and more robust than many EL84 based amps. The NewCastle is perfect for the player that uses a lot of pedals and wants an affordable clean platform to work from. In fact the NewCastle remains clean up till around 2:00 on the Volume control and from there breaks up into the most musical overdrive you have ever heard!

One of the best features of the NewCastle is how well it cleans up when you roll the volume on your guitar down. With the NewCastle you may find that you don’t need your overdrive pedals anymore as the volume control on your guitar acts like a gain control on the amp depending on how hard you play. In fact, you may find that your favorite setting is to leave the Volume up all the way on the amp and use your guitars volume to vary between your clean and dirty tones! Couple this with its very effective Tone control, and the NewCastle can morph between pristine clean, hard rock and warm smooth jazz tones with ease!

 

SIMPLE IS BETTER

The NewCastle is a lesson in simplicity. Someone once asked Jackson Ampworks, “What’s your secret to great tone?” Answer: “Use good parts, and use as few as possible.” That is what the NewCastle is all about. The design was purposefully kept simple to make it easier to dial in and to keep your tone as pure as possible.

During the design phase of the NewCastle they spent many hours working with artists, producers and engineers and used their feedback to help dial in the circuit so that the NewCastle would work seamlessly with all types of guitars, pickups and effects and the extra effort was well worth it! The NewCastle is a perfect go-to amp for players looking to capture great tone either live or in the studio.

Special attention was paid during the design of the NewCastle to guarantee that lack of headroom would never be a concern as is often the case with other 18W amps. To give as much power and headroom as possible, the power supply and output section were overbuilt to guarantee that the amp delivers every last bit of power possible out of it’s pair of EL84’s.

Along with the power amp section, the preamp has been designed to handle single coil as well as humbucker equipped guitars with ease and without becoming flabby in the low end, even when the amp is cranked.

 

FULLY FEATURED

The front panel features a single Input, Volume and Tone controls. The Volume control acts as both a Volume as well as a gain control. The higher you run the Volume the more the amp will overdrive in response to how hard the player attacks the strings. The Tone control acts as a master tone control for the entire amp and works similar to the tone control on a guitar. Rotating the Tone control clockwise will increases the high-end response of the amp and conversely rotating the Tone control counter clockwise removes high-end response from the amp which helps when a darker tone is desired or with bright sounding guitars. The full clockwise position removes the Tone control from the amplifier circuit to keep your original tone as pure as possible.

Like the front panel, the back panel is kept very simple. There are two speaker out jacks with an impedance selector switch that provides outputs of either 8 or 16 ohms. Located next to that are the Power and Standby switches as well as an IEC module with an integrated fuse and a switch for selecting between 120V and 240V operation. With the NewCastle you’ll never have to worry about traveling on the road since the amp is designed to work at all line voltages.
