Introducing Titanica Britannica

Seeking the pinnacle oversized British-born sonics? Hop Pole / Adam Steel returns with a gargantuan release, packaged with no-holds-barred rafter rattlin’ guarantee!

In creating Titanica Britannica, Adam’s mantra was simple: fuse a tried-and-tested legacy of Capture Master know-how with the most exclusive, rare and (some might argue) crazy cabs to ever grace the Two notes archives. The result? Well, we seriously considered putting a warning label on this collection.

For starters, it’s packed with 7 primo captures from the same mind that brought you 2021’s ever-popular “Best of British” Collection – lest we forget the resident Capture Master for the likes of Victory®, Laney® and many more. Next, this is packed with a dynamite driver assemblage retrofitted into one-of-a-kind rarities and super-elusive cabinets. Brimming with DynIRs inspired by a Vox® 4×12″, a 4×10″ Marshall®, a 4×10″ Trace Elliot®, two custom Zilla® 6×12’s, a SAI® 4×15 and curveball Rock (not the genre folks) cabinet, this release guarantees to empower your performance with top-flight tone of titanic proportions.

It’s plain to see, in developing this collection, no stone was left unturned (quite-literally). Meticulously captured using a premium collection of studio grade mics and stellar recording peripherals, expect the pinnacle in primo oversized British born tone with 7 captures that are as versatile as they are hard-to-come-by!
