Polytone Mega-Brute Amplifier Canadian guitarist, Glenn Murch once told me that Polytone guitar amps basically have one sound and you either like it or not. This sound is not ultra-high in fidelity ( compared to more contemporary designs ), has a dark voicing, a distinct midrange honk and starts to distort at high volume settings. This is probably not the best amp to use if you play in a big band, but it works okay with a trio if you are happy with the sound it provides and the drummer uses brushes and/or soft hands with sticks.
