Combo 100 watts transistor with prampli lamp.
A line-mule HP, an effects loop (in parallel range I think) with a two speaker outputs used by the original footswitch jack.
From left to right:
-The clear volume BMT
a switch "brigth" switch and a clean / OD
-Crunch sound: volume gain
a switch OD1/OD2
The saturated-gain contour volume BMT
a power switch and a switch dimension fx mix
a mix fx knob, reverb clean sound, reverb distortion.

Oh, and then the power button stopped too;)

For me there is all it takes is practice the three channels, but -2 for missing a master volume and a button to the effects loop on the pedals.

UTILIZATION

I lacated quite simple but it's been quite some time I have so I know him well.
the contour is rglage gnial, one can obtain large disto type nomtal clean but both sound good dgueulasses
the manual? bah ca not use that stuff a little l!
I remember look for the outline and the best is yet to test or even, I also respect what exactly has served the fx mix knob and switch and I find that so clear that c'tait ca, in fact I still do not use it too, but I'm not a fan of effects.

SOUNDS

In disto I find really good, some are to blame
Channel 1 but it's a complment for the second saturation, I use it for parts or I'm back.
For when you push against a bit of volume the sound becomes more clear gnial, it takes effect but it's still okay if it was not too big pickups;)
This amp should trs well to my style of music, although that aant changed since I bought it.

Important: this amp has nothing to do with transistor amps marshall / lamp current and dtest I tried.

6 for clear sound, 9.5 for the saturated (until I find better) so I put 9 (c I know not the average of the two;))

OVERALL OPINION

I have over five years.
Rglage the contour can be very useful, we do not believe a single knob for varying the sound as much!
I had tried several including a Hughes & Kettner I almost bought, I ENTSO and I'm not letting go of prs (ADCON what it starts, I must changing the lamp).
Quality price ratio? In the era was the best, one reason for my purchase.

And YES I rachetrais!
