For those who don’t know, Ted Wallace is one of the great unsung heroes of amp building: he focussed on the highest quality and supplied to the cream of the UK’s session players (Jimmy Page, JPJ etc). His amps were prized for the quality (and low noise floor) and stood out in an era of noisy valve/tube amps – hence their popularity with session players. The build quality is second to none and the sound reflects that attention to detail and craftsmanship. They rarely come up for sale and are not widely known – while Wallace amps outclass their more famous (and better marketed) contemporaries such as Vox, Marshall and Selmer, they remain a closely guarded secret. If you wish to know more, then this Guitarist article from 2006 is pretty much the only source of further information online.
The later XT series have excellent tone-shaping options making it easy to dial in the sound you’re looking for – this amp just sounds great whatever you put through it.
