Amplifier transistor modlisations:
- Amp Simulator (Fender, Marshall, Vox, Mesa, Soldano, etc ...)
- Simulator cabinets (2x12, 4x12, open, closed, etc ...)
- Pretty cool multi-effects section (reverb, flange, delay, etc ...)

- 4 presets storable

The manufacture seems to good quality.
Simple design .... must love the grille fawn vintage ...

UTILIZATION

The principle is simple: a wheel to choose the type of amp, with choice of channel clean / lead for each of them (the LED changes color depending on the channel).
The same wheel also serves to select the type of firm (and, to get complicated, so either rglage has the ear or rote learning of the manual!)

Rglages classic bass / middle / treble / presence

Simulates a drive .... the drive of a tube amp; =)
Volume (r "adjustable per preset, and Master volume.

The main difficulty to get a good sound: the plethora of choices between amp / hp ... Fortunately, the manual is well done ...

SOUNDS

I tried this amp that belongs to a friend, I do not have.
Playing mostly prog metal, I t qd same bluff by simulating the Mesa Dual Rectifier!
Soldano simulation is not bad either.
Good clean sounds, but also crystalline.
Sounds, jazzy, british metal, etc. ....

A little research can you really get what you want, there is something for tt the world.

OVERALL OPINION

Well, this amp clear that c will never replace a Dual Rectifier 3 or JCM body ....
But given the price of the Beast (approx. € 600), has a good alternative, especially given the diversity of sounds on offer.

Lovers of big sounds, british 70/80, and even good clean sounds / jazzy, who have no money to pay you the big combo home, go ahead!
(By the way, wonder if I'll buy him in., ;=))) me ...)

A BMOL however: c 4 preset too little regard to the diversity of sounds.
.... and the price of pdaliers Line 6: manisfestations is theft !!!!!
€ 149 for a poor pdalier 4 switches (which include the four presets on the amp)!
I think there is a switch pdalier 16 + expression pedal, but prohibitively expensive ... damage.
