Epifani Now Shipping Piccolo 999 Bass Amp

Epifani Amps Piccolo 999 Bass Amp

Amp builder Nick Epifani has beefed up his Piccolo bass amp series with the Piccolo 999. The 1,000-watt head utilizes Epifani’s UL series preamp including a new Vintage circuit that adds a tube-like tone to the overall output. The Class D amp and switch-mode power supply keep the amp down to just 4.5 pounds and small enough to fit in a gig bag.

Besides a three-band EQ, the amp is fitted with a mid-cut switch and knob designed for easily dialing in a slap tone. Other features include a mute switch, a DI with level control, a footswitch jack, a tuner output, and an effects loop.

The Piccolo 999 is shipping now with a street price of $1,199.
