Today we're setting our sights on the PowerStage 170, from Seymour Duncan. Have you ever wished that your whole rig could live on your pedalboard? The PowerStage 170 makes that dream a reality by offering a rugged 170-watt amplifier that rides shotgun alongside your pedals for the ultimate grab-and-go rig. Because it fits right on your board, the PowerStage 170 has been carefully engineered to function as a dynamic pedal platform that will take the full brunt of your rig and then ask for more. The front end of the PowerStage 170 is an all-analog active EQ with 13 decibels of boost or cut at three precision-tuned bass, mid and treble bands, expertly matched to dial in the right amount of adjustment for whatever cabinet you might use. The PowerStage 170 features a huge master volume knob, and because the whole thign fits on your board, you can turn the volume knob with your foot, for the most amp-like boost available anywhere. When you bypass your pedalboard, the PowerStage 170 becomes your clean channelBecause of the PowerStage 170's dead-simple interface and intuitive design, you never have to worry about finicky amps or warming up ever again. For those of you watching your weight, the PowerStage 170 weighs in at just two pounds, so it's as easy to transport as it is to dial in. And just like all Seymour Duncan products, the PowerStage 170 is designed and assembled in Santa Barbara, CA the same factory responsible for their famous pickups.
