NAMM 2020: Warwick has announced the compact Gnome Amp, a single-channel bass amplifier head.

We don’t know much about the specs of the Gnome, however know that it will come in three versions, released periodically across the year:

• Warwick Gnome 200 watts, releasing in May 2020
• Warwick Gnome i (w. USB interface) 200 watts, releasing in August 2020
• Warwick Gnome i Pro (w. USB interface) 300 watts releasing in August 2020

All of the amps in the Gnome range are single-channel, and sport controls for gain, bass, mid, treble and master volume. They also feature a balanced XLR output with a switchable ground lift, a clip limiter and a short circuit

The inclusion of an XLR output on all models, and the USB connectivity on the Gnome i and Gnome i Pro hint that this amp will be geared towards those who are looking for a compact direct recording solution.

Be sure to stay tuned to for more updates on the Gnome as they appear.
