« An excellent Fender ... with a big distortion. »Publié le 09/13/10 à 14:56
So, if I understand:
A transistor-amp for the clean channel
One (or two?) Preamp (s) to tube 2 channel crunch and distorion
Before, we have, from left to right (all the knobs are graduated from 1 to 10):
- The input guitar
- Inspections of the clean (Normal): Volume, mid boost, treble, mid, bass
- Controls the party tube ("Tube Drive): Gain 1, Gain button choices, gain 2, LEDs indicating channel, treble, mid, bass, button choice tube / clear volume
- Two controls labeled "Master" ... : Reverb and Effects Mix
- A footswitch jack (included)
- The power button
- Max external speaker output 8 Ohm
- Line Out
- Effects loop send / return with level selection switch 3: 16 7 DBV DBV 4DBV
The amplifier measures about in cm: 57 * 24 * 45 and weighs his weight, transportable rather than portable, you do not you type with 500m walk.
Not really man I can remember, just the shots of the amp.
Using very simple: share volume and equalizer settings, we have a 3 button footswitch, 1 to enable the distortion, 1 to select channel and 1 to turn the reverb springs
It is well enough fiddling to find the sound you want, but you can get according to taste pretty good to very good sound varied from light to heavy distortion crystalline metal.
Note that I played over a very long time with an old aria pro 2 rs spirit of opportunity in its very bof and I still got out of beautiful sounds.
It is suitable for a range of styles: the channels are very changeable due to very sensitive faders, each providing significant variations in sound.
It may therefore have:
A-end and crystal clear sound or property consisting boosted the mids, great playing
A crunch-excellent, everything goes, Chuck Berry to Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton AC / DC
One-distortion, and that is where the amp broke away at the time of Fender usual: he was wanted more versatile and does not nothing good name ROC PRO. It can range from mild distortion, which is already a bit more violent than a crunch and dirty rock / blues, to heavy distortion busy that we should not push the gain on the bottom to play Metallica. It already provides a nice range of distortion, what great fun and still play styles, although this is not the best or the best disto of the world, just a little too sharp. In it the clear and are superior crunch, but there is plenty to do with its versatility, power and good sound that hard!
I've had 12 years and it did not disappoint me, it happens not easily within its sound.
I do not remember having tried tons of amps before, I had noticed and preferred to other magazines for his good reviews (no internet buzzing with news at the time), versatility and its price, I was trying, perhaps others at the same time but I did not score, and it was purchased directly, my first amp.
The sound is very good and varied for the price, a Fender bass distortion is not a joke, it works and it is clear from the quality of the Fender.
With the experience I would have chosen something less than 100 W. Indeed, it is much too big to play at home in his room, apartment, terraced houses even we forget, and this limit for group rehearsals. on the other hand for small concert here everything can ensure quiet from the little cafe at the ballroom, there is absolutely no doubt about its wattage, it sends. Which means that I have never regretted one second, a small amp can be frustrating on the sound, with the latter one having fun.
The only real criticism is probably the lack of a headphone and a master. For the clean sound no problem, we can lower the channel volume and the guitar and still have something good, although the volume of the canal cut between 2 and 1. As for cons channel tube was sound from 1.5 but it only takes its character from that of 2, which is already very strong, the ears are to be held well in 2m amp. Before that it was not carément the same sound, rather a boil dirty fuzz.
Therefore, forced to play loud enough if you want good sound, which can be annoying if you do not have a planned place. To view, requisitioned as I rise to 2 on each preamp, or just above, and it is quite sufficient.
Besides you need to know it was an excellent value for money, and if I were back in those days, beginning guitar and knowing my taste, I certainly would not choose anything else for that budget. I made over my arms and never let me down, I'm really lucky to have everything on a good amp with good sound, I've had 12 years and didn ' m not tired, I'll change the quality of the guitar and surely rediscovering. With a good instrument and one or the other equalizer I can get the most ...
