Baer Amplification is now shipping the Valkyrie, an 850-watt bass amplifier featuring the company’s Trans-Hybrid Preamp. The Valkyrie’s solid state preamp sounds rich without adding much coloration while the amp’s tube hybrid preamp adds more personality with more harmonic overtones and growl. The two sections are switched as easily as the push of a button.
The Valkyrie puts out 850 watts at 2 ohms, 635 watts at 4 ohms, or 350 watts at 8 ohms for flexibility for a variety of gig situations. It has separate active and passive 1/4″ inputs with a -10dB pad. Its 6-band EQ section includes variable frequencies for low and high mids as well as Deep and Bright controls for the extreme ends of the spectrum. The DI has its own level control as well as a pre/post EQ switch and a pre/post tube switch. Other features include a tuner output, an effects loop, a 1/4″ line out, and a mute switch.
The Baer Amplification Valkyrie fits into a 2U rack unit chassis that weighs in at 26 pounds. It has options to come with a vinyl head case, a padded head case, or a mute footswitch. It’s shipping now with a direct price of $1,999.
