"My constant search for true amp greatness has led me to Mojave amplification. I was originally approached by Mojave Amplification to do some sound clips for their line of amplifiers, After having a chance to play four different models of their product line (Plexi 45, Coyote, Scorpion and Sidewinder.... each one stellar in it's own right), I came to the conclusion that they were the best sounding modern amps that I had heard! What started as a work for hire turned into an endorsement situation based solely on the merit of their product. I really feel that the Mojave product stands out from the pack. I found it refreshing to finally play on a non-master volume amp that gave me that shade of "old school" classic tone with just the right amount of that newer "edge" that you need in order for it to compete with what is going on in music today. After getting familiar with the Mojave product line, I settled on the "Sidewinder" model as my personal first choice. It's a 4xEL 84 power section, around 30 watts.... I tend to favor the sound of cranked up power section over the typical fizzy pre amp sound that a lot of players go for, so the Sidewinder suited my requirements perfectly. Another added bonus was that the Mojave responded well to having fuzz/fizz and boost pedals driving its front end. Recording the Mojave amplifiers was a pleasure. I have posted the mp3's on my Gear page so that you can give them a listen for yourself."more
The Sidewinder has a lot in common with our Coyote amplifier, with a more powerful 30 watt power amplifier for more clean headroom and dynamic range. You still get great features like power dampening and dual volume controls that let you quickly dial in usable tones.
The cathode biased power amplifier gives touch sensitive character and sweetness. The amp produces a symphony of color and chime, rich in harmonic content. Our exclusive current tracking technology means crisper tone than comparable amps.
The complement of four EL84 output power tubes, one GZ34 rectifier tube, and three 12AX7 preamp tubes produces classic tones as well. Without missing a beat you can move from a sweet chime laden tone to a full on raging overload with the Mojave Sidewinder. Also available in 1×12 and 2×12 combo versions.
We revoiced the Sidewinder for increased gain in the upper midrange. Now you get additional clean chime sounds and a great deal of flexibility for recording and performing. The Blues Saraceno recordings of the Sidewinder show off its versatile voice.
