This is a darn smart move by Seymour Duncan. At a time when everyone else is running the effects trail, SD moves away & does a power amp.
They even offer it in a rack format.
These are aimed at the effects geek who doesn't need a boutique amp to get things going, just an above average power amp unit to plug in, let's say, an AXE FX unit which already contain a lethal arsenal of tone modules. It then leaves them some funds to invest in desirable speaker cabs. 👌🏽
