Hayden Competition - WIN a Custom MoFo Amplifier
Dolphin MusicHayden MoFo Competition
Like the truly classic guitar amps in history, each model in the Hayden range sets out to do a job and do it properly. From the moment you plug in, a Hayden makes its presence felt with a strong and unmistakable core tone that remains intact no matter how hard the amplifier is driven.
Drawing on the classic valve amp designs of the past, Hayden adds just the features a modern guitarist needs like valve switching, pick-up matching and the greater reliability that comes through refined circuit design, and leaves out the superfluous gimmicks that often stand in the way of great tone.
And through the careful combination of custom-wound transformers, defence-standard components and elegant signal topology, Hayden delivers a performance experience in which the player feels unusually 'connected' to the sound, and the volume control on the guitar is all that's needed to move from clean through to crunch and overdriven sounds.
Hayden amps are hand-wired in England by specialists with years of experience in defence-standard work.
Uncompromising specifications include non-ferrous stainless steel chassis construction, hand-machined gold turret tags, ceramic valve bases, engraved front panels and marine quality birch ply cabinets. Yet despite a decidedly boutique approach, Hayden amps are priced within range of the working guitarist.
So the question isn't do you need a Hayden amp, it's which Hayden amp do you need?
At Dolphin Music we are offering you the chance to win a Hayden MoFo 30, hand built by legend Dave Green who has previously tuned amps for the likes of Oasis, and has recently built amps for Eagles of Death Metal, Carl Barat (Libertines) and Biffy Clyro.

The Hayden MoFo, is an all-valve guitar amp with a whole lot of attitude. But unlike other mini guitar amp heads, the MoFo is definitely not a one trick pony. From stunning bell like clean tones with real depth to plexi-esque classic rock crunch, right up to full on metal mayhem, the 30 watt MoFo head does it all.
With four cascaded gain stages and a foot switchable MoFo mode for even more gain, the MoFo does it all from classic clean tones through plexi-esque classic rock crunch to full metal mayhem.
And the versatility doesn't stop with the sounds.
There's 30 Watts of power, courtesy of 4 x EL84 valves. And with both 8 and 16 Ohm speaker outputs, the MoFo can drive a wide range of cabinets from a boutique 1x12 in the studio right up to a 4x12 on the concert stage.
Separate UK and US-voiced instrument inputs shape the signal for classic British or thinner, higher-gain US tones respectively, and a simple series FX loop allows you connect your favourite stomp boxes.
And when you're rehearsing, you'll love the Stealth switch underneath the amp which lets your MoFo scream, without the neighbours screaming at you.
