Evolution of the Gjika 10^n Gold Standard Shawn Lane Powers of Ten Redux Guitar Amplifier

In 2013, a determined customer contacted me and convinced me to recreate one of the Gold amps, which I improved with the Gainmaster and some important circuit modifications.

...while building more user-friendly amps, I developed the Gainmaster, which has been a component of my last several amp designs...

Here is a look at the "business end" of the 10^n with it's 6061 aluminum tube guard, and fan, for optimum cooling of this high-powered single-ended monster.

Brought my logo into the 21st century, and took the cosmetic metal plates back to the original Powers of Ten gold...mounted the amp in a standard sized "normal" cabinet..

Me, around 1988, with the Original Gold "Shawn Lane" amp - a great-sounding, but extremely heavy and bulky amplifier that sacrificed convenience for performance. It was only built for a few years before it became clear that it was impractical for most guitarists...

Finished product exceeds all expectations.  I have retired all other designs at this point, and the 10^n is now in production.

After re-creating the old Powers of Ten amp, I was inspired to revisit the single-ended design and in 2015, I figured out a way to fit it in a standard-sized cabinet, with improved tone and only two knobs - end result is that everyone who experiences it is blown away...
