Do not let the looks of the Ares™ fool you.
Many years of experience and knowledge have allowed KSR amplification to
pack there signature high-gain Lead channel along with an all-new Crunch channel into a deceptively small package.
Ares™ is a real 'meat and potatoes' amp and as such there is no MIDI
advanced control built-in. However, there are some cool features borrowed
from the Orthos™, including assignable Crunch/Fat/Voice/Bright functions for each Master Volume as well as dual Gain and Master controls. A transparent,
yet fully by-passable, effects loop seamlessly couples the preamp to the power section. The Loop bypass and Master 1/2 selection are available both on the
front panel of the amp, and on the floor via the include custom 2-button foot switch.
The Ares™ sounds deceivingly massive by utilizing a pair of 6L6 power tubes along with our custom oversized transformers for a rated output power of 50W, minimum. Via a simple bias procedure using the include external test points and bias control, the power section is capable of running most octal power tubes.
