Product Description


The Terz Amplifier, designed specifically for Third Man Records, is a hybrid of classic analog amplification circuitry and cutting edge power electronics. It is a portable, loud amp that sounds great while using only four rechargeable ‘AA’ batteries. Alluding to the “three” in Third Man, the amp has just three controls: High and low frequency gain and volume. The speaker grill design also riffs on the idea of “three.” The name ‘Terz’, meaning “third” in German, is a name of smaller classical guitars - we thought it fitting considering the size of the amp! There are two analog gain/distortion circuits behind the sound of the amp. The left knob controls the amount of silicon diode distortion and low frequency adjustment. The center knob controls the amount of germanium diode distortion for high end crunch. The right knob controls the overall volume of the amp.

Critter & Guitari for Third Man Records (00:51)
Critter & Guitari are makers of amazingly enjoyable audio machines. We have long been enamored with their Pocket Piano, so when the opportunity arose to have our very own Critter & Guitari instrument, we leapt at the chance. In the world now exists an instrument and amplifier designed specifically for Third Man Records - a 3-octave keyboard synthesizer "Septavox" and a 3-knobbed "Terz" Amplifier, both made in the U.S.A. The sounds and tones of the instruments were selected specifically for us, and of course, they come in black and yellow. These are not only instruments of enjoyment, these are instruments for professionals as well. Critter & Guitari designs its products with the notion in mind that they should please anyone of any age and any musical skill level, and the Septavox and Terz are no exception. We will have a Critter & Guitari demonstration table set up at Record Store Day, April 18th 2015 with their resident wizards ready and waiting to show you the instruments in all their glory.
