The Series 3000 is a direct descendant of the amp that started it all for Matamp, the Series 2000, made famous by Peter Green among many. The Series 3000 Green has a warm and dynamically responsive tone that sounds great on its own or with pedals. This Green version has a slightly stiffer power supply and is the perfect baby GT120 when you want the tone but not the massive volume.
The preamp is the same as a Series 2000 apart from a drive pot in place of the switch. The output stage combines aspects of the Orange Matamp ORST and Series 2000. It features a pair of cathode bias EL34s fed by a GZ34 rectifier valve to give 30w of clean dynamic power with a little less sag than the standard Series 3000.
The tone is pure vintage Matamp from the Cooper-Mathias era of Orange-Matamp, but without the expense of owning an original. If you’re lucky enough to own an original you can now retire your prized vintage amp and achieve all of the British blues tones you love, if you’ve never experienced true vintage Matamp tone what are you waiting for?
