19 watts of
harmonic bliss

The Komet™ 19 is the touch sensitive, versatile amplifier. It is designed for practically any guitar playing style, whether using single coil or humbucking pickups. This little amplifier covers a multitude of tonal ranges from shimmering cleans and chime, to searing high gain lead crunch tones — all controllable from your guitar’s volume knob.

Overflowing
with harmonic content.

The Komet 19 is unlike any low-wattage amplifier you’ve played — extremely powerful, with rich harmonic layers and three dimensional sound. Its unique and proprietary “Thrust” control fine tunes the amplifier’s response to your guitar’s output and personal tonal preference. Lower settings allow for maximum clean headroom, while turning the Thrust up thickens the tone and increases harmonic distortion for a more saturated lead tone. It also helps anemic guitar pickups to drive the amplifier’s output stage into natural compression.

Simplicity.
Portability.

With 19 Watts of Komet power, The Komet 19 will not get lost in a band situation. Another facet of the Komet 19’s voicing is that is easy to record — it has been used in many major studios, and recording engineers always remark on how amazing it “goes to tape”. A three position bright switch allows the user to fine tune the amplifier’s treble content to their preference.

Conveniently light weight and portable, the Komet 19 is powered by a duet of cathode biased EL84 / 6BQ5 output tubes. The pre amp incorporates two 12AX7 tubes. Meticulously assembled with only the best sounding and most reliable parts.

“I want an amp to be fast and dynamic. I want to hear the note with multiple layers of harmonic complexity, giving a fat, euphonic, and lyrical tone. ...My goal is to make amps that make the soundtrack to people’s lives.”

‐ Ken Fischer, Trainwreck Circuits

Komet shares Ken Fischer’s ideal of what constitutes a great guitar amplifier. All Komet™ designs that followed the Komet 60 are based on what we have gleaned from Ken Fischer’s mentorship. Sadly, Ken Fischer passed in December of 2006. We miss his guidance, friendship and humor, and we are honored to be part of the Trainwreck lineage.
