The perfect single-channel, pedal platform amp!

The Hamstead Artist 20 encompasses maximum tonal versatility, without compromising on tonal quality.

With its classy, old-school aesthetics, the Artist 20+RT is far more versatile than its appearance suggests.

The Artist 20+RT serves up everything from shimmering cleans to warm, natural, harmonically-rich overdriven tones.

It's powerful, portable, and works brilliantly with pedals and guitars of all types!

With its single-channel design, the Artist 20+RT can serve as the perfect platform for your pedals.

Not only does the Artist 20+RT take drive pedals amazingly through its front end, its line level series FX Loop lets you achieve more.

Its FX Loop lets you engage modulation and time-based effects without losing volume or affecting the amp's base tonal characteristics.

An incredibly versatile amplifier!

In Artist 20, each stage of the circuitry has been carefully refined to provide you with magnificent tones over a wide spectrum of styles.

From the warmest of mellow jazz, through sparkling country cleans, to mean, gritty blues and classic rock drive, the Artist 20 has it covered!

And, it does it all with a depth, clarity, and feel that allows your playing and gear to really shine through.

Power at your fingertips.

Don't be fooled by the 20W power rating, the Artist 20+RT has no problem being heard.

And, with its unique Output Power selection, you can take Artist 20 down to 7 and 2 watts without compromising your tone!

Wind the Master down more, and all the touch sensitivity and nuance is retained down to almost whisper levels: perfect for stage, studio, or practice.

Signature Reverb & Tremolo.

Artist 20+RT features Hamstead's popular Signature Sinewave Reverb & Tremolo circuits.

The Reverb features depth and tone controls, giving you full control from bright and twangy, to more dark, ambient sounds.

The Tremolo has depth and speed controls, using analog control of the signal to give a smooth, even sweep at any speed.

Extra Features.

The included 4-button footswitch lets you take full advantage and control of the amp's features on the fly!

The switches allow you to control the reverb and tremolo effects, as well as bypass the FX Loop section (to turn off multiple effects at once for example).

The Voice switch adds presence and bite to your tone for solos.
