The Tony Bruno Super 100 is an amp that was built because of the constant demand from loyal Bruno clients. Each week Tony got several requests from guitarists who were looking for a channel switching amp that had rich warm clean tones and creamy smooth overdrive but were unable to find it. These players wanted an amp that delivered the type of tone made famous by Robben, Stevie, Larry, Eric and several other great guitarists. Many were not satisfied with the tonal quality of new point to point wired or circuit board channel switching amps that tried to reproduce this highly sought after tone. While a few of these amps supplied a taste of the Magic tone - Players yearned for a new amp that really nailed or improved upon that time honored sound.

The Bruno Super 100 is the amp these Guitarists have been waiting for. It was designed by Tony to be the finest sounding channel switching amp in the world. In the design process no stone was left unturned in the pursuit of the ultimate tone. Tony built more than 13 prototypes, with several revisions each, until he was finally satisfied with the results. This is an amp that truly must be heard.

There are no compromises made in the building of a Bruno Super 100 to make fabrication quicker or easier at the expense of Tone. Each amp takes Tony almost 2 weeks to build and test - a length of time few amp designers are willing to invest. The details of a Super 100 include:
Amp is completely point to point, hand wired and tested by Tony Bruno

Super 100 Features

Clean Channel - The Bruno Super 100 is a 100 watt amp and it feels powerful but in a very refined way. It has tons of clean headroom, is very transparent and sounds amazing with electric, acoustic and archtop guitars. Tone-wise, the Bruno Super 100 has a really beautiful clean sound with a very clear, bell-like tone that seems to get even better if you turn down or pick more lightly. You could really get lost in this tone which is rich, warm, harmonically complex and very fat. It also has amazing touch sensitivity, note articulation and dynamic response. This amp sounds fast and seems to reproduce every nuance and detail of the pick and fingers against the strings with clarity and accuracy that is very immediate. If you crank the gain, creamy smooth overdrive blends with the stellar clean tone to give you that highly sought after harmonically saturated mix of both. Clicking in the channel boost pushes the gain of the clean channel and produces a range of tones from rich fat clean with edge to medium sweet overdrive.
Clean channel controls include Volume, Master Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass and Presence controls; Bright, Mid, and Bass boost switches, and a channel boost that can be activated by the rear panel or foot switch.

Lead Channel - The real deal - Creamy smooth overdrive - It has that feeling of an amp "on the edge" so that it very easily will pick up a note and give you that infinite harmonic sustain. The overdrive on this amp is very smooth and silky with sweet sustain that is very rich and buttery, while still retaining amazing touch sensitivity and dynamic feel. Overdrive is adjustable over a wide range of gain, from slight overtones to harmonically engorged and compressed tones, and the Super 100 never looses it's tightness or focus. The channel boost makes the overdrive tones even bigger and fatter.

20TH Century Guitar Magazine Said "Clicking into the lead channel brings you into overdrive heaven. Gobs of gain are at you command...the amazing sweet sound of the Super 100s lead channel is really one of the best this pair of ears has ever heard."

Lead channel controls include gain and level knobs, and a channel boost that can be activated by the rear panel or foot switch.

The Super 100 features 100 watts of Quad EL34 or 6L6 power, 3 - 12AX7s and a solid state rectifier for tighter bass and dynamics. The cabinet is constructed of solid pine for its sweet brightness and then fine tuned with a birch ply baffle for superb resonance. Finger-jointed construction is used just like the finest furniture which provides a very strong, extremely rigid, rattle free cabinet that will last a lifetime. Other features include premium tolex coverings, padded handles, heavy duty feet, stainless steel screws/bolts and chromed steel corners. Standard finishes are black, brown, dark green, red or cream with an Art Deco style control panel and aged Ivory "chicken head" knobs.
