The KT88 tradition continues
First looks can be deceiving, ....familiar cosmetics, ...familar controls, ...but what's under the hood? Well for starters, one massive, 18 pound ouput transformer, the identical output transformer found on our Silver Cloud and Vimana amplifier models. Keeping in step with those two models, the new MK80 is powered by two, reissue Genelex "Gold Lion" KT88 beam-power tetrode vacuum tubes (in push-pull configuration). Extensive voicing went into this new model and each component was chosen for sonic performance and measured for precision. Photos and more details coming soon.
Komet™ amplifiers are hand-crafted and are available in a wide variety of cosmetics. Each model is available with its own set of customizations such as levant tolex, colored aluminum control panels, and even different Komet logo-plate options — all available from select Komet dealers around the world.
Craft your signature tone and customize your Komet with your own look to boot.
