Value For Money : Poor
Transistor amp with 1 single lamp on the 12AX7 prampli of distortion.
It is given to 100W but personally, without any exaggeration on my part, I will give him 300! BTW, this is what it consumes ...

Especially since mine is a 2 bodies !!! And yes! There are two bodies!
And this is a true wonder !!!

It can store the crankset in the head thanks to the Detachable Faceplate (velcro) and PRVU velcro to hold it during transport. (Perso I also put my link cable head / cabinet and my whawha and power supply)

* Effects loop with adjustable gain (3 positions)
* Outputs 4 and / or 8 ohm speakers for
* Outputs Line out and Phones
Lack the power to contrler the effects loop (On or Off)
I put 9 story to say that it is not perfect (as consume 3 times the return has seems a bit much and lacks the switch to the effects loop)

USE

Super simple to use!
Its clear: low - medium - acute - volume with a switch to remove much of the mdiums
Its saturated 2 channels with 2 rglages gain but qualisation and common saturs volume to 2 channels. Ideal for passing rhythm sections / solos
Crankset 3 buttons (Clean / Crunc - Channel - Reverb) with stro jack.

Nothing is easier to use !!

I put 10 for the characteristics for I have found no fault him (perhaps from the eternal problem of Fender: the sensitivity too presents knobs at the start of race Leure )dropoff window

SONORITS

Its clear .... Then the typical Fender: slamming, clean, bright ... In short, indtronable even very strong power!
As against the distortion ... The lamp is that's for sure but to play the metal, either you take a good prampli, a good kind Pdal distortion or warp factor Mtal zone or metal plant.
Personally, I was amazed by the sound that could take a Mtal area on this amp (with a limited series Strat Nono)

The original lamp is good but mine was a little tired ... I replaced with a Mesa Boogie 12AX7 and ... Better, but not great when even for the m tal.
on the other hand, even with the original lamp, the distortion are ideal for blues, jazz (lightweight satu with reverb), rock style franais Black Dsir, Saez, Matmatah etc ...

I put 9 for her because damage to the mtaleux!

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for 1 and a half years now and I'm really not in! I use it with a GT-6, the distos bientt will be replaced by the pramli Rocktron the Gainiac 2.
I sell the head because I spend rack but it's really against heart.
So I use it with a Strat Nono, a Peavey Raptor with Seymour Duncanc 59 Little easel. Moreover, with a microphone like the the distortion of the amp is more than enough to make Mtal !!

R-dition 20/12/2006: I finally have not sold the head, but I spar of Gainiac 2 (gos very sound, but ... I'm too fussy about distos to be satisfied).
I play in the final with a GT-Pro (I came GT-6) and .............. HUGE !!! Super Sim Rectifier Mesa through the Pramp Fender !!

Very good quality for money (I find it also not quite expensive for what it is but ... Good for us !!)

I I appreciates the most is that it is in a cabinet with 2 body mount 4 * 12 original with the signature Fender! It's really great and the sound is not at all the same combo that (I had the opportunity to try both and 2 body works much better to send her far and wide gr what to 4 hp)

Bon bah I would put 9 because there is just a little tiny something that ESG me is consumption: 300W to return 100, I think that was a bit lost!
Also lacks the switch on the crankset to the effects loop (even if still a gadget).

If the opportunity were to reprsenter, I rachterais without any problem and without rflchir.
For it is better to buy a good old Fender transistor with a good distortion or a good multi-effect not rate very expensive, while an amp Mesa lamp, for example, score much more expensive, without the multi-effect !! Especially we can reproduce the same sound aisment a Mesa much cheaper !!!!
