Suhr Hombre Head & Cabinet 2x12
Hombre, Suhr’s take on the classic Brownface tones that have inspired John Suhr since his early days as a guitarist. The intention was clear: create a modern take on these classic designs while preserving the vintage heritage.
The purity of the signal path is part of Hombre’s beauty. It results in a playing experience that is incredibly dynamic and touch-sensitive. A simple turn of the volume and tone controls will put a shocking range of sound at your fingertips.
Clean tones are classic, gorgeous and bell-like, but make no mistake, this amp is a dirty little combo. It wants to be pushed into sweet overdrive, conjuring tones from the 1970s era of Texas blues-rock.
The onboard Dynamic Tube Bias tremolo imparts an unmistakably rich, sought after sound, that simply can’t be imitated. Hombre is driven by a ~20-watt 6V6 power section and features a lightweight cabinet loaded with a 12″ Celestion V-Type speaker.
PURE SIGNAL PATH
Hombre features a Normal and Bright channel with straightforward Volume and Tone controls. A simple, transparent signal path is something many players find alluring due to the purity of tone and superb dynamic range.
Our goal was to maintain the vintage characteristics while simultaneously making some improvements to the design. Painstaking attention was given to the component layout and signal path to reduce noise. Hombre is equipped with custom made transformers that are wound on paper bobbins and made in the USA.
DYNAMIC TUBE BIAS TREMOLO
Bias Tremolo circuits are truly unique in that the effect is created by modulating the bias of the power tubes. As the power tube bias is lowered and raised, it imparts an unmistakably rich, sought after sound, that only a Tube Bias Tremolo can.
There’s a distinct interaction that exists between the tremolo and the dynamics of the musician. The intensity of the tremolo can be influenced by how hard or soft the guitar is played. When the amp is pushed harder, or the musician plays harder, the tremolo effect is less noticeable, yet as the signal decays the effect becomes more apparent. This results in a stunning effect that lives and breathes with the music.
VINTAGE CABINET DESIGN
Hombre is a lightweight 1×12 combo that is the perfect grab-and-go companion for both gigs and studio sessions. The cabinet is a vintage design made from box jointed pine and features a floating baffle. After many hours of listening and testing, we chose a 12″ Celestion® V-Type speaker to accompany Hombre.
Hombre 2×12 Cabinet
The all-new Hombre 2×12 cabinet is the perfect companion to the new Suhr Hombre head amplifier. Going back to the BIG vintage 2×12 cabs that once shared the stage with legends, yielding a quintessential tone of the ’60s, the Suhr Hombre 2×12 comes complete with the low-end, vintage warmth that can fill a room. Paired with the new Suhr Hombre head, the Hombre 2×12 cab delivers a massively rich tone with incredible clarity throughout the range of sounds the Hombre head is capable of. After auditioning many different speakers and even some combinations, we chose the very same speaker we use for the Suhr Hombre Combo, the legendary Celestion V-type. This incredible combination of speakers and large, pine cabinet shell makes this rig one you’ll have to plug in and experience the tone.
