Steve Morse Signature E656

An exceptional guitarist and an exceptional amp is a truly exceptional combination! Steve Morse has been shaping the sound of rock icons Deep Purple for more than 20 years, and enjoys the highest acclaim in guitar circles with his own Steve Morse Band. We worked with Steve for over a year to get his dream amp ready! The E656 head delivers the sounds of the world’s top players. The EQ section is unique, featuring four (yes, four!) controls! In this way, the mid-range, which is so important in a full band context, can be shaped in the best possible way. With two switchable master volume levels, two effects loops, a noise gate and MIDI on board, nothing can stand in your way. Whether it’s crisp rock riffs with Deep Purple or a variety of sounds in complex solo lines, the E656 has been an integral part of Steve Morse’s rig for more than a decade.
