Mambosun's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect for Jazz"

Eminence Lil' Buddy
Change made in my HP SuperChampXD this morning for a Eminence Lil Buddy.
The operation took me only 10 minutes: removing the two rear plates, the original HP + connectivity, and reassembly of the Lil Buddy.
First, what is surprising is the much greater weight compared to the original HP! Secondly, the fact that HP is fixed with 4 screws, usually there are more, but reassuring is that they are metal screws with insert, therefore allowing more robust fixings removal procedure is safe damage the cabinet.
The third surprise, not the least of which is the difference in sound reproduction, compared to the original, the Eminence sounds more full, warm and fleshy, which is perfect for jazz and hair cell sound I was looking for , also it sounds more powerful and also seems to have better power handling, but that I have not been able to test, not wanting to permanently angry with my neighborhood.
Tried with different voicings of the SCXD, including overdrive and distos found its fullest and this powerful, very medium I like to power chords or solo.
Anyway, I'm really pleased and impressed by the Lil Buddy gives me the impression of having changed to a higher amp model, nearly matching a Princeton example.
My clone L5 connected to it, I find that illustrious typed "Smoky Jazz Club", not surprising when you realize that ultimately membrane Lil Buddy is made from hemp ..

... but for amateurs sound "dark" without being "harsh".
This is a really special record at HP. This is not an HP glossy and detailed to Fender or sharp and angry at the Vox. He made a "clean mellow". Some critics say it sounds like a HP on which coverage would have asked, and yes that sounds a bit this purpose.
For my part, I melodies plays jazz / swing, sometimes for overdrive limit the attack mediator, and I love it because it does not have this side sharp / shrill to other products.
Present for a much lower 10 inches of it right mids and highs there, but everything is as "nicely polished". Really special ...

Looking for a jazz sound "mellow" (kind of smoky bar jazz), I installed it in a combo 2/3 open-back "home-made" (12AX7 6V6 +) 4/5 Watts modified to use jazz. So for me, it works perfect! Note that I only play clean to (loud) volume of house (thank you nice neighbors). So no experience with large volume of room or distortion ...

As an anecdote, I manage to be both mellow jazzy sound of a telecaster neck pickup on, tone halved.

Like its big cousin the Cannabis Rex, Lil 'Buddy features a hemp cone. But the sound has nothing to do with him. The CR is known for exceptional cleans and bright, that does not deliver the entire Lil'Buddy.
on the other hand, this hemp cone can push very aut power while maintaining a very clean record: distorts very late. Very good record as a very low volume.
Some préconnisent to "settle" an overly bright amp. Personally I would not make this recommendation because it is in fact the entire sound spectrum that makes it mellow and it may not appeal at all.

I have long hesitated to select it (not very popular on the Internet, HP, and a lot of critics). But I do not regret at all: perfect for what I was looking for: mellow, mellow ...

Makos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" HP recommended a"

Eminence Lil' Buddy
From reading the excellent advice above, I just confirm it.
I installed it in a small HP Super Champ, my style of music being similar to the pre-cited author, it excels in the register Lil'Buddy Jazz / Blues.
It reinforces the "hot" side of the lamps. The attack is powerful when you press the pick. It remains clear to very high output with no past in the medium-acute "garish". The coil cash much better lamp power as the HP original of this little 15W Fender (HP not bad, but too "light" to my ears).
It is quite heavy, almost 3kg. The coil is twice that of the original Super Champ (A Jensen C10Q I think) ...
A piece of choice when ringing Jazz / Blues. A quality / moderate price (about 75 euros).
