« The KING of tube poweramps! »

Publié le 04/08/11 à 19:36
The Fryette 2/90/2 sports all the features one would hope for in a quality power amp, including

- Stereo all tube power amp pushing 90 watts per side
- 2 KT-88 power tubes per side (6550 compatible as well)
- Master, presence, and depth controls per side
- Voicing and input level switches per side
- A and B input and outputs, with 4, 8, and 16 ohm settings
- Individual standby per side for easy mono operation
- high and low fan speed modes


UTILIZATION

Plug in your favorite preamp, and go. The dials are very effective over their range, and make fine tuning your sound quite simple. I love how the master knobs react linearly over the range, allowing you to go from quiet to LOUD, and everything in between. Retubing and biasing is quite simple (assuming you know what you’re doing), though expensive with the KT-88s.

SOUNDS

Here is where the Fryette makes its mark. This is easily the biggest and meanest sounding power amp I have played. The KT-88 tubes make your common 6L6 or EL-34 sound weak. The sound is clean and aggressive, with headroom for days. The lows punch like you would not believe, and the highs cut and bite amazingly in a live mix. Those that down tune will love the clarity this power amp offers to your rig. The depth knob, which is not found on many other power amps, is GREAT at getting a more 3-D and big sound out of your preamp. Be careful though- the power amp has a more stiff response than others, and required a clean player, as it is definitely less forgiving.

As a little side note, stereo effects are awesome ;)

OVERALL OPINION

As you will find many others saying, this is the power amp that all other competitors judge against as the standard. HUGE lows, cuttings highs, and clarity like none other. Though the price tag is high, there is a reason for it, and in my opinion, it is more than worth it. Clean up your playing style, and enjoy some ridiculously good tone!
