Beale Street in Memphis (TN) is one of America’s most iconic streets. Beale Street is the birthplace of Blues. We’ve all heard of Memphis Blues and even if some of you have not, you have definitely heard this street mentioned in a few famous songs. Marc Cohn’s world famous song “Walking in Memphis” mentions it in the chorus with the line “…walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale”.
B.B. King started here and was known as “The Beale Street Blues Boy”. Beale Street is also a very important place in black history. Many clubs, restaurants and shops were owned by African-Americans. Between the 20s and 40s legends like Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters, Albert King, Rufus Thomas and Rosco Gordon played on Beale and developed the Memphis Blues.
A classic redefined This is why we chose this Street as the name for our 12 Watt classic Blues Amp. The JOYO Beale Street is the kind of amplifier that would have been used by these musicians to shape the style of an era.
It is specially designed for guitar players who require a great and stable clean sound. It aims to perfectly reproduce the great American clean sound of the 50’s.
Blues and Jazz players alike will find a new best friend on their quest for ultimate tone. It doesn’t hurt that it also looks extremely classy and original. The Y-shaped vents on the front are not just a design element but also make sure that the amp has the appropriate amount of air flow going past the tubes.
With its 12 Watt it is a great bedroom amp, perfect for recording and it even doesn’t leave you hanging at small gigs.
When you push the NORMAL or the BRIGHT channel it gives you a thick, saturated power amp drive. When both channels are bridged, that thickness increases even more. But even without driving the amp into distortion, it is very versatile because it is a perfect platform for your pedal board. Keep it clean and explore how brilliant and dynamic your pedals really sound. We bet you’ve never heard them in all of their glory!
