Inspired by vintage Gibson amplifiers, Gibson has released the Falcon 5 and Falcon 20, handcrafted in Petaluma, California. Focusing on sound, simplicity, and ease of use, the new Falcon models pay homage to the 1960s Falcons, the very first guitar amplifiers available with reverb, while continuing Gibson’s long legacy of groundbreaking amplifier innovation that dates back to the 1930s. They offer the versatility demanded on modern stages and home studios with exceptional build quality, quiet operation, and voicings that will captivate and delight players. The Gibson Falcon Amplifiers are available now in North America at authorized Gibson dealers and on www.gibson.com, with the rest of the world launching in April 2024.
The compact Falcon 5 and Falcon 20 combos hark back to the Gibson amplifiers from the late 1950s and early 1960s that inspired them, but beneath their vintage-style Cream Bronco vinyl and Oxblood grille cloths are all-new circuits developed by Gibson Master Pioneer Randall Smith founder of MESA/Boogie®, and the Gibson Amps Design Team in Petaluma.
“This is such a proud day for all of us at Gibson,” adds Mat Koehler, Vice President of Product, Gibson Brands. “We’re back in the amplifier game in a big way. The Falcon 5 and 20 have an amazing balance of historic DNA and modern build quality and they offer unprecedented value to players, not to mention timeless designs that will look as great on stage as they will in homes.”
