NAMM 2020: Jimmy Page’s limited-edition Sundragon amp gets a regular production run
The Sundragon Standard is a recreation of Page’s amp, used on Led Zeppelin I.
NAMM 2020: Jimmy Page has unveiled the follow-up to his limited-edition 2019 Sundragon amp – the Sundragon Standard.
The hand-built Sundragon Standard was the result of a collaboration between Page, Mitch Colby and Perry Margouleff, and is constructed as a faithful replica of the amp Page used to record albums like Led Zeppelin I and Joe Cocker’s With A Little Help From My Friends.
The original Sundragon was a Supro Coronado that underwent significant modifications over time. The new production model Sundragon Standard features carefully selected components assembled using point-to-point wiring (much like the original), all made in small batches.
The initial limited-edition Sundragon was strictly limited to 50 pieces and sold out immediately. It featured a single 12-inch Jensen P12Q alnico magnet speaker with a British-style 8-ohm cone – a change from the original’s two 10-inch speakers. Other facets of the amp included NOS parts, original manufacturer hand-wound transformers and NOS tubes by Mullard and GE.
The production model Sundragon Standard was officially announced at Summer NAMM 2019, and was reported to feature many design aspects of the original limited-edition amp. With the exception of some small changes to the cabinet design, the use of modern tubes and lack of Page’s signature, the brand claims that the Standard model is practically identical to the limited-edition variant.
The Jimmy Page Sundragon Standard is available for $3,875 and will begin shipping in March. For more information, click here.
