Guitar and Bass Tube Amplifiers

When FBT was founded in 1963, some of the first FBT branded products produced were tube guitar and bass amplifiers. In the 1970’s with the evolution of transistor technology, brought us to manufacture extremely reliable yet affordable amplifiers for export internationally. Since then, FBT has continuously made the investment of both time and capital in R&D to produce innovative sound reinforcement products for live performance and permanent installations. With this background and the vast experience gained in more than 40 years of electronics manufacturing, FBT’s original identity as a Guitar and Bass Amplification manufacturer now returns. The New CICOGNANI branded amps feature the design and engineering skills of Guglielmo Cicognani, who is well known throughout Italy as an engineer and handcrafter of guitar and bass tube amplifiers that feature an original design and sound. His reputation for customising popular brands of English and American amps quickly spread among professional musicians throughout Italy. Cicognani soon after began producing a small range of Tube Instrument amplifiers. In 2007, FBT and CICOGNANI have joined together their reciprocal strengths to present to the market a complete range of Guitar and Bass Tube Amplifiers with their own signature sound for today’s highly demanding professional musicians. With FBT’s international presence and solid establishment in the audio industry, the “CICOGNANI” brand will soon be become well known worldwide. All Design, Engineering, and Manufacturing continues in Italy. FBT’s dream to resume producing tube based technology Guitar and Bass amplifiers has now become a reality.

BASS Guitar

Indy Bass Amp
Pro Bass Guitar Amplifier
Live Performance & Recording. The Indy offers 2 user modes: Dual channel, Dual Bass. DUAL CHANNEL is the classic use mode which uses only Input One and allows recalls through midi presets of 2 flat channels + 2 channels with EQ + 2 tube compressors DUAL BASS use mode allows 2 bass inputs (bass/double bass) connected to Input One and Input Two. The double preamp reserves one flat channel, one channel with EQ, one tube compressor to the bass assigned to Input One; and same goes for Input Two. These functions can be all memorized and assigned to Midi presets. In this mode, when one input channel is in play, the other is in standby (Live use). It is possible to connect to 2 channels and with both in function, the preamps independently offer recall of one flat channel and 1channel with EQ applied and with 1 compressor.
