Seymour Duncan revamps convenience with a power amp voiced for guitar players that fits directly on a pedalboard


SANTA BARBARA, CA June 13, 2017Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups, pedals and power amps, announces the PowerStage™ 170, the first power amp designed specifically for guitar players using pedals and modelers to create their unique tone.

The PowerStage 170 is a 170-watt power amp with a clean preamp section and 3-band global EQ, making it the perfect complement to any pedal. It is small enough to fit directly on a pedalboard, or in any gig bag, and lightweight enough for fly dates. Simply plug your pedalboard into any speaker cabinet.

And at 170 watts of power, it is loud enough to drive your live rig, yet compact enough to live comfortably on your pedalboard. We’re very excited to bring the PowerStage 170 to guitarists everywhere.”

Features include:

  • 170 Watts at 4 Ohms
  • 3-band EQ
  • Functions as a clean channel
