Jet City Amplification JCA20HFlex
Press Release
Jet City Amplification is pleased to announce the
FLEX – a fully-programmable tube guitar amplifier. Using technology engineered
by Gary Lee of BackLine Engineering, all front-panel rotary controls function as
normally expected, yet all settings can be saved in one of 30 user presets, and
recalled via footswitch or MIDI. The Flex topology is noninvasive to the amplifier’s
all-tube tone generation; only the potentiometers are replaced and controlled by
new technology.

The 20HFlex includes 3 Soldano preamp voices; Vintage, Crunch, and
Overdrive, 3-band EQ, master volume, and effects loop, with all setting

“Mike Soldano and I had been exploring some concepts very similar to his
SOLDANO X-99 programmable preamp, when we met Gary from BackLine” said
Douglas White, Jet City’s manager of Product Development. “Gary had some
very clever technology which he had developed for use in his own amplifiers, so
teaming up was natural for both parties. We were able to develop an amp with all
the tube alchemy Mike is known for, controlled by Gary’s technology wizardry. It
turned into a very useful amp for the gigging guitarist”.

At an estimated street price of $699.99, the JCA20HFlex is built with Jet City’s
highly-regarded quality, and delivers the same tonal quality as their most-popular
