Kustom Double Cross Head

Sticks n' Strings Music

Expanding its U.S. tube amplifier line, Kustom™ proudly introduces the Double Cross™, a world-class, all-tube, 3-channel guitar head. Designed by noted amp builder James Brown, the 100-watt Double Cross boldly redefines high-gain guitar amplification with a broad spectrum of stunning new tones and user-modified features.

The Double Cross platform consists of three distinctively voiced channels: Rhythm, Lead I and Lead II. Each Lead channel can be modified by users via four separate function switches which are located at the four end points of a "Cross" design on the control panel. These switches are not simply EQ parameters: instead, each uniquely blends additional 12Ax7 tube stages, letting players actually alter the Gain/EQ/Attack structure of their preamps - modifications usually not offered to consumers unless they take their amplifier to a knowledgeable technician to be permanently "modded."

In general, the two Lead channels are voiced differenctly, with Lead I catering to a modern heavy tone and Lead II crafted for a more tradtional, high-gain "cranked amp" lead tone.

The four switches on each Cross are: (1) Bright: which alters the tone to enhance high-end response and tighten the low-end; (2) Gain: which boosts the preamp gain; (3) Tight Stage: which adds chunky, vintage-style gain like a classic amp when fully cranked; (4) Thick Stage: which offers rich, aggressive tonal qualities with complex harmonic content. These four functions may be activated, omitted and blended in any combination to create a wider choice of tones than any other high-gain amp on the market.
