The Fryette Aether®
"Sonics snatched from the heavens"

The preamp and power amplifier sections are housed in separate chassis. This helps keep hum and noise to almost imperceptible levels, reduces power tube vibration which will extend tube life, and minimizes certain frequency cancellations that can impact tone and sustain. It is wonderful to look at, connect and operate, and remarkably convenient to transport do to the thoughtful weight distribution of the power amp and cabinet system.
No amplifier is complete without a speaker and Fryette is one of the few amplifier companies who truly understands speaker design and the importance of integrating speaker behavior into the sonic performance of the amplifier. After almost two years in the making, Steven Fryette, working closely with the design and engineering team at Fane Acoustics, UK, have developed a speaker uniquely capable of expressing the full tonal palette of the Aether® amplifier. The result is the Fane/Fryette A60S, a remarkably expressive and rich sounding Alnico speaker with matching cream chassis and bell cover.
This is a point to point hand-wired amplifier designed to minimize component lead-lengths and wire usage. Naturally, we utilize high-quality, high-reliability components and construction materials to increase the quality and reliability of the overall design. Like all Fryette amplifiers, the output stage incorporates custom designed, precision-wound power and output transformers for maximum fidelity and reliability.
