The legend
lives on

The Songwriter 30 was one of the the last Trainwreck® designs built by the legendary Kenneth Fischer. Due to his failing health, Ken was only able to build two of these magnificent hand wired amplifiers.

One of a kind

"Bree", one of the two original Trainwreck® Songwriter ampliifiers, was our reference build amplifier. Every Komet Songwriter 30 is meticulously hand built and voiced to "Bree's "signature sound. It's powered by a quartet of cathode biased, re-issue Mullard EL84/6BQ5 output tubes. The pre amp incorporates two 12AX7 tubes.

No Trends,
Just Soul

No reverb, master volume, effects loop, pull pots, transistors, chips - bells or whistles. The chassis is solid, 1/8th " aircraft garde aluminum and is chosen for the very particular electrical properties that it possesses, as well as it's heat absorbing qualities. The custom designed propietary transformers, as well as the chassis, head box, control panels and logos, are made here in the U.S.A. $4,799 U.S.D.

The Songrwriter is also available in a tremolo version, please inquire with your dealer for further pricing info.
