This is a hybrid amp (one 12AX7 pramplification lamp) and a transistor amp.
Amplification 2 * 40 watts RMS with 2 Speakers Celestion 12 "GT12. (Very good speaker, not Introduced the SECOND Valvestate series)
This amp sounds clean possde 2 and 2 distortion:
-Its Clean
-A Crunch
-2 Distortion od1, OD2.
Presence of a reverb. On the chorus stro activated from the pedal.


The configuration of the amp is very simple, nothing complicated.
The dscription "good sound" is very subjective but I think this amp is pretty polivalent, there is obviously a well-THE marshall with ov2 and then more blousy and crunch sounds that can be obtained remaining in his clean is growing volume gain (by lowering the master, it's safer !!).
I use a gibson les paul and his hontement rings.


It is ideally suited my style of music and as I said prcdemment this amp is very polivalent should be a lot of musicians I think. It is very biensur powerful and widely used to play with acoustic drums, you risk even to draw your drummer even if he used to play hard. In concert he is great, playing in front and you have a more than adequate return.
Even in large rooms transplanting forcment is not necessary.

As I also said I play with a les paul and sound as well as saturated clean is very good.
The distortion is very hot, the sound is comparable to that of a whole lamp.
One gripe perhaps, the precision of potentiomtre, you have insisted to evolve the sound.
The distortion is very good, and the clean sound is not bad either.
The stro chorus is very interesting, both in its clear that its saturated it adds heat. In clean sound it provides a sound very round.


I use it for 1 year now, I've bought used and I'm delighted, it's a very very solid amp (public car ...).
The marshall distortion is trsrussi and presents.
I 've tried a lot of amp model before purchase including all-tube amp like the Peavey ValveKing 112 and this amp can not marshall the ankle.
The price quality ratio is gnial today we find it used less than 200 Euros, which is drisoir for this amp.
With the experience I refrais this choice is an amp that keeps life even if all the ranges lamp marshall and mesa boogie are Superior, it remains a very good amp that is far from being ridiculous face has any lamp.
In short, amp warm, powerful, strong and polivalent.
