Idea of Gearhead Amplifiers, an exclusive amp with best sounding, was born in 2012. When designing and building guitar amplifiers started, bearing in mind simple philosophy: “Build the best sounding and most reliable amplifier possible”.

The main idea of Gearhead Amplifiers is to build original, fantastic sounding and reliable amplifiers with reasonable price tag. We find that the only way fulfill that goal is to work on new designs and polish them until the product is just perfect. Unlike many of the small-time manufacturers, who are copying old and proven designs, we at Gearhead Amplifiers always try to make something new and unique.
We use only the best parts to build a perfect amplifier. Every Gearhead amplifier uses high quality sealed potentiometers, thick aircraft grade aluminum chassis, tubes that meet or exceed military specifications and oversized power and output transformers. We try to make every single amplifier like a piece of artwork that looks as good as it sounds.
Every Gearhead amplifier is hand built in Tartu, Estonia using the finest materials available.
Definition of word “gearhead” was at first racing aficionado. For that reason our product names are inspired by car racing and hot rodding.
The sound of Two Trick Pony could be described as “glassy”, “smooth” and “British”.
Emphasized upper mid and treble frequencies make it especially good at cutting through the mix.
The name Two Trick Pony stands for two honest watts of clean power, two output tubes and two tone shaping controls. Like real pony car, this amplifier is cute and hides more than one expects. Most of very low powered amplifiers are made with triode output stage, using dual triodes usually common for preamps. They sound different, not bad, but different. The goal of designing Two Trick Pony was getting similar sound to much more powerful amplifiers, but on the volume levels that are bedroom and studio riendly. We used small signal pentodes through the amplifier – 5654W and 6J1P-EV in the preamp stages and two 6AH6-s in the output stage. Combining all pentode design with passive modified James tone stack gives Two Trick Pony its unique sound.

The versatility of Eliminator II is extraordinary. Active Baxandall tone stack really changes the sound and clever Brilliance control gives small but interesting touch to the final sound.

Like original Eliminator prototype from 2006, Eliminator II uses the same basic design – simple Bass, Treble, Brilliance and Volume controls and triode push-pull output stage. But now in larger scale and using active tone stack. Dual pentode preamp using EF86 tubes and triode strapped 6L6GC based push-pull power amp give the amplifier its unique tone. Active Baxandall tone stack adds versatility and really helps you to find your own guitar sound. And all-original Brilliance control gives finishing touch from raising higher treble frequencies on clean sounds to changing distortion characteristics on overdriven sounds. Actually playing this amplifier could lead to addiction and definitely not the bad one.
