The new 2015 XITS X10 1x12 Combo tube amp was developed after two years of research and experimentation, resulting in the perfect mid-powered combo amp that's dynamic, versatile and sounds incredible for both studio and stage use. By taking the premier elements of the original X10 and its counterpart the Sadie X15, the new amp features updated and redesigned Mercury Magnetic transformers, circuitry, and a swank cabinet for arguably one of the best-sounding portable combo amps on the planet. It's a single channel 17 watt combo with a single 16-ohm 12" Celestion Alnico Blue speaker that produces vintage warmth with bell like chime - it's simply outstanding.
"The X10 has beautiful cleans with plenty of chime and the breakup is really touch responsive. The controls are intuitive and no nonsense too. This amp offers plenty of headroom, but you can get it to break up easily when you want it to. And it looks AWESOME." Eric P.
It has three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two cathode-biased EL84 power tubes, and can go from a pristine clean tone to a fully saturated drive with ease. Its top controls are about as easy as it gets with an On/Off/Standby switch, and controls for Volume 2 (the master volume), Bass, Treble, and Volume 1 (for pre-amp gain). In addition, it has a two-position Sparkle switch that acts a bit like bright switch or boost, but it's something more, providing a really cool tonal bump. The Volume 2 control allows you to blend both pre- and power-amp gain for even more tonal variety. It takes pedals extraordinarily well, too although it can definitely be dirtied up with its natural gain, similar to a Vox. The brand new XITS X10 1x12 Combo amp is an absolutely masterful amplifier.
Here's a quick Xits X10 Amp Demo - Eric P's playing the Anderson Cobra guitar with Anderson H1- & H2+ pickups. He flips on the Sparkle switch halfway through the video and plays the same run-through.
