The Mission Engineering Gemini Wedge combines a state of the art full range digital amplifier with a hand made cabinet, in a stage friendly monitor format.
Many PA style wedge monitors are factory made from spray painted, low cost composites. The Mission Gemini Wedge, is hand built with the same materials, and by the same craftspeople that create some of the worlds finest boutique tube amplifier cabinets. Gemini cabinets are constructed from box and finger jointed 3/4″ void free Baltic Birch, with high quality Tolex covering and metal cabinet hardware. They sound great, look great, and will last a lifetime.
Each Gemini wedge is finished in black Tolex, with black basket weave acoustic speaker cloth, black metal hardware and silver grill piping. A metal reach-in handle allows for easy carrying. Sturdy Rubber feet are mounted on two sides and the wedge can be positioned angled up as a monitor wedge, or upright like a 1×12 combo style cabinet.
Mission EmPower Technology™ features multi-channel class D power amplifiers, active crossovers with variable EQ, and full range co-axial drivers, all designed from the ground up to work together as the perfect amplification solution for modeling systems. Gemini wedge features a 110W internal amplifier, 12″ low frequency driver, and 1″ coaxial high frequency driver providing a frequency range from 57Hz – 20KHz. Pro-audio ¼” jack and XLR connectors connect Gemini amps directly with software based guitar systems.
The optional studio quality digital audio interface features bit perfect class 2 stereo audio with, selectable sampling rates up to 192KHz and 24bit. This allows you to play and record directly into your PC or Mac without any additional hardware. The EmPower EQ control allows blending between a flat or a more traditional guitar cab frequency response. Gemini can be used as a flat frequency response power amp and speaker or with a more traditional guitar cab frequency response. Full range flat response (FRFR) systems can often sound harsh and brittle when used as a monitor compared to a traditional tube amp. Empower allows you to dial in just the right blend depending on your application. Gemini can also be miked up like a traditional speaker cab.
Sophisticated connectivity supports a multitude of different input and output options via Combo XLR-/1/4″ jack, and USB inputs. With a single Gemini Wedge, stereo inputs are summed into a mono signal and output through the internal speaker drivers. Add a second Gemini, and PresenceDetect automatically determines the master/slave configuration and routes the stereo signals to the appropriate left and right units. Multiple inputs are mixed so you can connect a guitar and a USB device simultaneously to play along with a recording.
Gemini’s advanced power system provides a number of benefits not found in traditional guitar amplifiers. 100 – 240 input voltage and 50/60 Hz compatibility means you can use Gemini almost anywhere in the world without requiring heavy and expensive transformers. Just connect directly to wall power wherever you are with a suitable cable. Power saving features such as a high efficiency power supply and deep sleep modes for internal components mean Mission Gemini’s use a fraction of the power of a regular amp, costing less to run, and wasting less energy. The included V-Lock power cable ensures the power is correctly connected, and protects against the cable being accidentally pulled out.
Mission Gemini products are made in the USA. Every major component from the coaxial speakers, the hand built cabinet, the grill cloth and covering, right down to every single Mission designed PCB, is made right here in America.
