More than just custom-building…
Formyx amplifiers are built with safety, top efficiency and long-lasting reliability in focus. The tonality of each amp is built to match the instrument and taste of the musician during the building process. Granted, this process takes time from designing to implementation, yet the results are more than rewarding. What you get in the end is an amplifier of your own design built exactly how you want it to sound, upgraded to regulatory safety standards, fully reliable, serviceable and made to last.
Power Scaling is a proprietary technology by Kevin O’ Connor
of London Power, where the output power of an amplifier can be
dialed down to almost a whisper, while maintaining its “sound”. This has the enormous
advantage of being able to play your amp to poweramp saturation
while adjusting the actual volume to whatever level you desire.
For example, you are doing a sound-check for tonight’s gig and have just found the sweet spot on your brand new Formyx Serenity by dialing the MASTER VOLUME when the Sound Engineer needs you to lower the volume. Keeping the MASTER where it is, you then lower
the POWER of the amp by dialing down the POWER SCALING knob.
The same can happen if it’s late at night but you want to play that one lick you came up with. Without having to sacrifice the tone by dialing the MASTER down to 0.5, you just dial down the POWER SCALING knob of the amp.
This is a modernization electric instrument players have long
sought after, which is also far more healthier and safer for our hearing.
It’s like “going to 11” but at any volume level!
All Formyx amplifiers come with POWER SCALING by default, unless otherwise ordered.

Independent Bias nodes
Eliminating the need for paying extra for matched power tubes,
and in some cases having the freedom to even operate different
tube types for unique tone blending, independent Bias Nodes
provide a means to adjust and match each tube’s DC current
level. Since each valve gets older and drifts at a uniquely
different rate than any other valve, the potentiometers of
each node are used to always keep the valves balanced.
No need to change power tubes prematurely any more!
The audio circuit in all Formyx amplifiers is mounted on
point-2-point, flame resistant epoxy glass (FR4) eyelet
boards. This method is more difficult in manufacturing
but is vastly beneficial and ensures ease of access,
maintenance and customization without the need to remove
the card from the amp in order to access the solder joints.
Top quality materials
All components used in Formyx amps are selected for their
top quality, durability and stability. Agreed, it can cost more
but it is always beneficial in the long run since the amplifier
is reliable, safe to use and lasts a lifetime. In the end you get
what you pay for, Top Quality!
Customizable preamp voicing
Amp brands have been trapped for years into creating their own established tone signature and staying with it, with a common practice being to modify said amp models after purchase to suit each musician’s taste. Bypassing all this, Formyx amplifiers are One-Of-A-Kind units built from the beginning in coordination with the musician, fine-tuning them during the whole process.
