Description

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 has a warm and dynamically responsive tone that sounds great on its own or with pedals. Peter Green asked Mat for an amp that sounded like honey – here it is.

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 5U4GB rectifier valve to give 30w of clean power and dynamic compression that responds incredibly well to your pick attack.

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?

Updated with a stainless steel chassis, the one weak point on the original, this is an amp that won’t let you down and you won’t want to part with.

Available in the modern style Picture Frame (pictured) or the Traditional SL head sleeve.
