                                   AUSTIN GUITAR HOUSE IS A PROUD DEALER FOR 



The Super Bee captures that legendary Fullerton-made blackface 4x10" Super Reverb sound in an inspiring new model sized and powered to suit the true needs of today’s venues. No channel switching, no loop, just pure old-school blackface-inspired tone, delivered with new-school usability.

From scooped chime, to edge-of-breakup twang, to stinging roar, it’s all there at volume levels that will keep the soundman smiling while you push the Super Bee into succulent output-tube-driven overdrive and harmonically saturated bloom.

The key to the Super Bee circuit lies in its current-production 6BM8 output tubes. The pair achieves rich, bold, articulate tone remarkably reminiscent of the classic 6L6GC but at only 10 watts — plenty to cut through your drummer at the next club gig, but easily driven into dynamic sonic splendor without violating any noise restrictions.

Add a built-in attenuator to take it from 2 watts to a whisper for late-night jams; Carr’s spacious, three-dimensional tube-driven reverb; an EZ81 tube rectifier for a lively, bouncy playing response; and Carr’s legendary point-to-point construction and high-end component selection, and this is the finest compact Fullerton-killer on the scene today.

But wait! There’s also the versatile Sting switch to reconfigure the Super Bee for three classic voices:

64 – extra-scooped shimmer for crystalline cleans

68 – pushed blackface with bite for meaty twang and crunch

72 – more gain and a shift in the EQ circuit placement delivering fuller mids for luscious leads

The Super Bee — a Super reverb combo you can actually carry . . . And tear down the house without shredding any eardrums.
