Manufacturer's Description from 3rd Power Amps

The new Citizen Gain CSR is the company’s response to overwhelming customer demand for a dual-channel amp that combines the tonal versatility of American clean and British crunch while bringing it under foot-switchable control. During the development of the Citizen Gain CSR, 3RD Power pulled various design elements together from its’ flagship Dual Citizen and Citizen Gain amps as a starting point. The goal was multi-layered: create a true American-voiced clean channel with enough headroom to serve as a pedal platform and pair that with the scorching British tone capabilities of the Citizen Gain on channel two and deliver it in a package that features versatile foot-controllable channel switching. With the new Citizen Gain CSR, these distinctive American and British voices can be utilized on demand. With the company’s proprietary HybridMASTER volume management circuitry, the entire sonic experience can be had at whatever volume level is right for the room.

“Players often tell me, ‘I love your Dual Citizen AND I love the Citizen Gain, but in a perfect world, what I really need is the American clean from this one and the British higher-gain tones from that one… Oh, and, I need it foot-switchable!’ My biggest challenge was developing the channel-switching circuitry to provide a seamless transition from one sound to the next, and have it be executed in a very musical way with no pops, noises or hiccups. From there, I added our acclaimed Citizen-Loop which is a great sounding all-tube buffered effects loop. And finally, I felt this amplifier had to include our studio-quality analog spring reverb. Once I got everything up and running and could just play through the unit, it hit me that as an artist, I was really needing different reverb levels for the separate channels. Basically, I wanted more reverb on the clean channel and less on the gain channel. As a result, I incorporated a way to control the reverb levels for each channel independently and it then made it respond seamlessly with the channel-switching circuitry. The Citizen Gain CSR is an elegantly artful, versatile and inspiring tube guitar amplifier and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the design and performance of this model,” said Jamie Scott, founder and Amp Artist at 3RD Power.
