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

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...

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

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..

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.

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

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.

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...
