Soundfields is a partner in XITS amplifiers. Meaning we are the go-to source for any questions, technical or otherwise, about the amazing new X10 amplifier. Be in touch if you are interested in learning more about the X10. Soundfields is also collaborating with XITS to design a tweed style amp that we hope will be available in 2016.
The 2015 X10 amplifier was two years in the making and the result of our unceasing passion and relentless striving for the perfect combo amplifier. At XITS we are deeply committed to the small combo amplifier because of the considerable versatility it affords guitarists. Our new amp is easy to carry around, ideally sized to fit in any backseat, and looks unmistakably XITS!
We built many prototypes to explore the tonal possibilities of different materials and components in order to zero in on our design goals. No stone was left unturned and every aspect of the amp was carefully scrutinized until we felt we had everything right.
The new X10 is a single channel 17-Watt combo that combines the best elements of the original X10 and Sadie X15 models, along with a new circuit topology, redesigned Mercury Magnetics transformers, and an elegantly refined cabinet. We wanted the new amp to be incredibly dynamic and touch sensitive, with more clean head room and a tighter low end than the original X10, and a huge sound that defies the amps small footprint.
Sonically the new X10 can go from a sweet, articulate clean tone to three dimensional saturated overdrive, and everything in between. The interactive user controls, which include treble, bass and two volume knobs (one for preamp gain and one for power amp gain), allow a wide ranging pallet of tonal colors across volumes that are equally at home on the bandstand, in the studio or in the living room. The new X10 allows you to sound like you.
