We are proud to introduce our newest model The Orangutan Jr. We’ve spent the last year building and testing this amp both on stage and in the studio. We’ve done a ton of video clips with Brian Dennis (Gavin DeGraw, DAG, Little Big Town, etc.) and we’ll be release new clips every week, so follow our Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube for updates. Available at 3 Monkeys Amps dealers now.
In case you missed it, Jimmy pulled out all the stops for the final episode of his show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last Friday. Opening the show he joined Buckwheat Zydeco and The Roots to perform “On a Night Like This” playing a Champtone Stax through his 3 Monkeys Sock Monkey 18/12. Thanks for the support Jimmy!! Watch here.
Busy week here at the 3 Monkeys shop. Sent out an amp and a custom cabinet to Jacob Petersen (with Steve Miller), a proto Orangutan Jr to Justin Sharbono of Soul Asylum, and an Orangutan with a long tank reverb mod to Jim James of My Morning Jacket. Also finished the final cabinet for the Orangutan Jr, which should be shipping after the first of the year.
Our dealer Tommy’s Guitar Shop, sent us a link to this amazing demo by one of their employees David Curtis. David plays all of the instruments heard on the demo. He is one talented musician! Wow, thanks guys.
Built up in the midst of preparing for the Nashville Amp Expo, a new smaller/simpler Orangutan combo, code named Orangutan Jr. We covered this one to match Butch’s gold/black themed stage. Look for this to become a permanent model soon (with a new cabinet look) and catch it in action on tour with Butch.
