    Boss Nextone Special 80W 1x12” Combo Amplifier

    Boss Boss Nextone Special 80W 1x12” Combo Amplifier


    Product description

    Fueled by BOSS's acclaimed Tube Logic approach, the Nextone Special delivers premium sound, feel, and tonal versatility for stage players who demand the best. Tube Logic reproduces the complex interactive behaviors of classic tube designs in every way, providing authentic sound and feel with punchy attack, natural compression, dynamic speaker response, and big onstage presence. The amp also debuts BOSS's custom Waza B12W speaker, which combines the tone of sought-after "blue bell" speakers from the 1960s with modern power handling capacity.

    The Nextone Special's rear panel is filled with connectivity for modern performance and music production. External control is supported via the GA-FC foot controller, standard BOSS footswitches, and MIDI. There's also an effects loop, plus XLR and 1/4-inch line outputs for sending a direct feed to a PA, complete with three selectable mic'd cab IR voicings with Air Feel. A phones/recording output is available for silent practice and tracking sessions, along with USB for direct recording and communication with the Nextone Editor software. External speaker jacks are included as well, letting you connect up to two 16-ohm 4x12 cabs for even bigger tones.
