This is an amp and preamp lamps transistor amplification.
It has a clean channel and a drive.
Level knobs:
Clear channel: Master
The drive channel: Gain, Level
Equalisation: Bass and treble Mid-shift (button) digging medium but I would say most medium to lower border of the grave.
There is a jack input (cd input), headphone output and 3.5 mm line input to play your music.


The configuration is simple you turn the beast on the right to a big plop! (Like when it is off)
sound takes a few seconds to arrive ^ ^

and we can finally play ...

So there

In the clean sound is very big but not very accurate by activating the mid-shift it gets better, although for me this button is used to simulate the sound of British amps as they say ^ ^

One thing that I quickly down,
be the next vintage, I had to push the beautiful clean thoroughly at bottom, no crunch but a very large compression along the stroke of the knob.
Basically if you want to play with a lot of nuances, the transcribed it wrong.
on the other hand I must admit that the volume up sending it hard even if it is clean there are a lot of volume.
For high volume against it vibrates a lot.

In saturated channel, like the start of the race it is enough even clan forcing no way to do so cruncher same problem with the clean.

The crunch is found in the fourth race and half until it is correct, it is the most accurate.
Beyond this is a slurry without definition, the sound becomes supercharged and it means even worse record.

Proof here is a test I did at the time:

(Do not pay attention to my level of guitar I was not very good)

Just listen to the sound and you'll understand what I mean.


This amp has no character finally it is better to play it with a multi-effect is the best.
To return to the crunch weird, I found a very simple solution but worked well, was to attack the amp eq pedal by removing serious boosting the medium well I had a better crunch and by boosting the treble, I simulated a more marshall (from afar, of course) but try this technique you will find that it becomes clear sound and fun to play and already waiting for you ^ ^.

Forget about the headphones, the sound is 25% wind and 75% of its unqualified tiring for the ear, but especially without any simulation HP.
So instead of a baffle to believe it has to do with sound totally naked.

I would also add that for player input, there is no setting flight.
everything is set to the player and I highly advise you to blunder because the sound is much boost and if the player is at the bottom you will take a leap!


I used 1 year without me and I was even attach quite disappointed at the time.
However, I have convolutions of this amp to keep in mind.
He snores a lot when even then I changed lamp with a tung-sol I just won a small gain and loss of snoring.
This transformer must come too I think without me knowing either.
For the price, it's still amazing because there are much more expensive amps and sounds like crap.
In any case for this kind of amp should have a multi-effects for not getting tired quickly (so try my technique mentioned above), because after the volume level even when he spits hard.

I have left and I do not remake this choice.
