  • Hook Amps Captain 34

    Hook Amps Captain 34 - "The only multichannel amp that plays in the same league as the "big" single channel ones!"

    08/04/18

    INTRODUCTION I own the version 1, unmodded. 100w all tube amp, three channels with effect loop. 6 x 12ax7, 4 x EL34. - Clean channel: gain, volume, equalizer, boost, bright, eq cut. - Lead I and II channels: gain and volume (each), common equal…

    Carvin MTS3200 Head - "Great All-Around Tube Amp"

    07/18/18

    All of the other reviewers are correct, the MTS3200 is a great all-around amp. Great high gain (very high gain) tones but smooth and tasteful. Around the same time I bought my MTS3200, I picked up an original block letter 5150. I had the 5150 about a…

    Carvin X-100B - "Series IV- A Top Amp at Any Price Point"

    07/18/18

    The Carvin X100B Series IV amp is a terrific all-around amp that does everything well. While previous versions of the X-amp had some quirks, they got it right with the Series IV. Very loud amp, beautiful warm clean tone, very nice complex high gain l…

  • Soldano Hot Rod 50

    Soldano Hot Rod 50 - "Fantastic Amp- Killer Tones"

    07/18/18

    My first +$1000 amp was a 1994 single channel Soldano Hot Rod 50. Fantastic amp. Granted it was hard to get clean tones out of it at any loud volume, the overdriven tones were wonderful. Mid focused, squishy complex tones. Great, great lead tones. I'…

    Soldano SLO-100 Super Lead Overdrive - "A Legendary Amp For a Reason"

    07/18/18

    Mike Soldano builds wonderful products. The SLO is a legend for a reason....killer tones and robust build quality. In recent years I've owned Soldano SLOs (2), Soldano Hot Rod 50, Bogner Ecstasy, Carvins, Peaveys, etc and can attest that every amp ha…

  • Orange Micro Dark

    Orange Micro Dark - "Powerful enough, and with a great sound."

    05/23/18

    A single channel hybrid mini amp head with a single preamp tube, a 20W solid state poweramp, a headphone out, mono effect loop and 8-ohm output. I needed a amp with a headphone out, at least one tube and an effect loop which was compatible with th…

  • Hiwatt T20 Head

    Hiwatt T20 Head - "Carve your own sound!!"

    04/20/18

    An excellent amp with a clean, very versatile sound. The settings (and especially the EQ) allow you to really carve your very own sound. However, it’s not a channel strip and the amp still has its own sonic identity. True to Hiwatt’s reputation, it…

  • Taurus Stomp-Head 3.HG

    Taurus Stomp-Head 3.HG - "Amplifier in a stomp (pedal board) format offers plenty of features & flexibility" has images

    03/17/18

    SOUND: Any quality amp should be diverse, no matter its design. The Taurus SH3 (Stomp Head) HG (High-Gain) Amplifier is exceptional in its overall diversity and design, as well as in sound. Taurus may not be as well known as other amp companies (a…

  • Mesa Boogie Mark Five Head

    Mesa Boogie Mark Five Head - "Simply the best"

    01/05/18

    There is nothing I can say to render the true beauty, excellence, sweetness, power, subtlety, tonal richness, punch and everything else of this amp. First impression: it is built like a tank, has as much knobs as a Boieng 777 (actually, it has proba…
