Hayden Cotton Club 7/15 Guitar Combo


With a name like this, you know it’s got to have something to do with jazz. This little beauty is part of Hayden’s hand wired, valve series produced in the UK. As the marketing blurb tells me, from the moment you plug it in, a Hayden makes its presence felt with a strong and unmistakable core tone that remains intact no matter how hard the amplifier is driven. There’s no endless tweaking of controls – it just sounds great straight out of the box. And they’re right. With a 12” Celestion G12M Greenback speaker, this is one sweet sounding little amp and switching between the Single Ended and Push/Pull modes to empower the EL84-driven output stages, you feel unusually “connected” to the 7/15. And the technology is all in there, from the custom wound transformers, to the defence-standard components and the elegant signal topology. These amps are not only built to sound good, but also built to last, with nonferrous stainless steel chassis, hand machined gold turret tags and ceramic valve bases all inside a marine quality birch ply cabinet. So if you’re looking for a classic tone look no further. For more go to:
