The Double Decker combines the two worlds of historic amps, from blues to hard rock in one device.
Inspired by the legendary British tone of 1959, The Double Decker combines the two worlds of historic amps, from blues to hard rock in one device. From slight crunch and sexy tone to boosted hi-gain levels. We also doubled its potential uses, from the big stage to the bedroom. The 1959 Double Decker can be used with an amp or DAW and everything is doubled!
Two independent channels equipped with Gain, Volume and an entire tone stack for better sculpting of your tone.
Post Boost with Volume control can be activated on all three stages of the unit, (Bypass, Floor 1, Floor 2) and it is self-disengaged simply by pressing another button.
Tube FX Loop with series/parallel switch (especially useful when used with amps with no effects loop or series only)
Remote outs for connections with analog switchers.
Balanced/unbalanced D.I. Out with Direct/Emulated option (Speaker Sim. of a 2x12” - V30/SM57) that can be used simultaneously with the standard output of the unit or alone as interface for excellent quality audio recordings.
When we designed the 1959 DD, we always kept in mind the sound we wanted to produce with rich details, harmonics and an organic sound with tons of dynamics: an “in-your-face” tone. We also wanted to create a device which could easily obtain these great tones with effective and intuitive controls.1959 DD required a lot of engineering work to fit the size, despite using the high quality components normally used in amplifiers and with the important consideration of space.
To keep the standard pedals power supply (9-12VDC Negative tip), we pushed our Twin Dynamic ™ over the limit, making it able to increase the input voltage many times so as to obtain the maximum dynamic range of the signal. 1959DD is your perfect companion on the stage, both as an "Overdrive warehouse" on your large pedal board, or in a small setup with the effects placed in the loop. It is also great for studio or home use providing your records an excellent starting point for your guitar sound, Simply connecting it to your PC with or without Speaker simulator.
To celebrate 25 years of Brunetti, we wanted to design a new model that would make history in the world of guitar amplification. PlexiMan is the result of our efforts. This very special head is small in size, but is incredibly powerful. It has many similarities with its older “sister”, the Customwork Mercury. There are two separated channels, plus other new features that add two extra channels, providing four distinctive sounds with simple and effective operation.
The philosophy of “less is more” is truly demonstrated by the PlexiMan.
Powerful but tame, the 50W/5W amp is powered by a couple of EL34 tubes. Gorgeous, british rock sounds to suit a variety of musical genres are delivered effortlessly.
PlexiMan is available in custom color combination on request!

ManneNewport 4is our everyday hard working instrument. A model with solid 6 mm body top with our best striped Walnut, korina body and hand rubbed satin finish, with our new bridge for 4 strings models. And to reduce the weight of the body we drill small chambers just before gluing the top, allowing a better resonance and a faster tone maturation of the instrument.
This new series is the result of the application of Manne's ideas into a traditional and classic looking instruments. The result is a quality update with a brand new modern features of playability and performance.Developing our Nighthawk line we came across the idea of this new model. A dynamic look for a guitar that remains very traditional. Manne features for optimal playability, optimal access to the full fretboard and great attention to the details.One of the feature that sports the Manne production is the neck/body jointer, a system that allow the neck to be installed very near the body edge without the need of a heel, giving a great access and a solid connection.We applied this system with the result of a unique upper frets access. Manne quality neck provide fast and precise playability, commonly considered one of the best necks on the markets.
Alnico V or ceramic pick-ups (available also Manneblade minihumbuckers )
Reduced thickness resin fretboad neck, maple neck with laminate core
Asymmetrical neck shaping
Direct bolt on body (no steel plate on back of body)
