Glockenklang Announces Steamhammer Amp

Glockenklang Steamhammer Amp

German amp manufacturer Glockenklang has released the Steamhammer, a 700-watt class D amplifier that sets itself apart from their other lightweight amps by using an ICE power module. Its Class A preamp features a four-band EQ as well as a drive section and effects loop.

The amp’s input section starts with a 20 dB pad and a mute switch for the tuner output. The drive section has Drive, Drive Level, and Voice knobs. Its EQ section has both Low-Mid and High-Mid knobs, each of which have a switch to change frequencies. The entire EQ section can be engaged or disengaged with a switch. Next on the amp’s face is an Effect knob, which controls the level of the effects loop.

Other features include a headphone output, an XLR direct output, and footswitch connectors for controlling the drive, loop, or mute switch. Check out this detailed review by BassTheWorld’s Gregor Fris:
