Manufacturer's Description from Port City

With a simple set of useful controls, a single master volume, and 50 or 100 watts of clean headroom, the Pearl Head is an incredibly versatile amplifier designed to lay a rich tonal foundation for every type of guitarist. Whether it's being used at bedroom volumes or on a large stage, the Pearl excels in every setting. Musicians using effect pedals to achieve an overdriven tone will be amazed at how the Pearl’s clean, all-tube hand wired circuit can bring new life to the drive pedals in their rig. Musicians using time-based or modulation effects will also find that the Pearl’s tube powered effects loop creates a great platform for effects they prefer to keep completely clean.

About Manufacturer


Port City Amplification is based out of Asheville, NC, where we design and build all of our products to a strict quality standard, while striving to keep them affordable for working musicians. We approach what we do as an art - not in a lofty, unapproachable fashion - but because we find beauty in the simplicity and depth of what we create. When you buy a Port City product, you are buying a piece of gear that we have invested in so that you can be inspired to make music.


After years of touring, teaching music lessons, a brief career in finance, and working at one of the country's main guitar parts suppliers, Daniel Klein set out to begin what would soon become Port City Amplification. By studying electronics at night while working by day, the groundwork began to take shape. With help from a coworker and local amp guru, Daniel recalls building his first amplifier - a Bassman AB165 clone - and his passion for building amplifiers began to grow.

As Port City developed into a self-sustaining company, it became clear that one thing lacking in the boutique amplifier industry was innovation. One of the first products that was released out of this need was the original 1x12 Wave cabinet, a totally unique design which was approved for a provisional patent soon after. The concept of these cabinets emerged from a place of asking fundamental questions about how to get the best tone possible from a guitar speaker. The simplicity in this approach to designing products continued as Daniel designed the Twelve, and soon after, the Pearl...
