The B-52 amplifiers are sort of the low end type of amplifier company that really tailors towards the budgeted musician who is looking for something pretty inexpensive and self explanatory across the control knobs and dials. These answer kind of busy sounding in my opinion and they don't really articulate dynamics very well. They don't have a very good sound in general but I find that the people that they market their products to our really looking for the total bliss that you would find in high-end amplifiers of some sort or even boutique amplifiers. These are the kind of amps that are going to give a beginner or learner something to feel comfortable with. So I have to keep in mind that these simple solid-state combos art for the professional music musician in mind but rather the person learning to develop their guitar skills as an entry level form.

This guitar is basically a two channel amplifier that has a simple clean one and gain two with a contoured control knob. You often also have a basic tree band EQ as well. It comes with a spring reverb which doesn't sound that bad actually. You can switch the reverb on and off to your total needs. In addition there's a headphones line out so you can play relatively comfortable with silence playing or you can just unhook back and run a line out into a mixing console or your computer if you have an interface to do so. The cleans are probably better than the gain and a sense that they get sparkly and chimy type of clean tone. The solid-state is not can have a whole lot dynamics and you're really not to feel that to feel that you'd feel out of the tube amplifier. Overall it's a decent amplifier for the money and for someone who's looking for something inexpensive.
These products of been discontinued for a while so you can only find them in the used section of classifieds. Generally the B-52s amplifiers you can find in many guitar retailer such as the big outlet guitar retailers of Sam Ash or guitar centers. They usually carry this brand so if you're looking for something local I would start with that. You can always be found online to which is a more comfortable easier reach but again you won't build a plant. This is not a bad amplifier for the money if you're looking for something to learn how to play the guitar with.

I have not had
Trs a good clean channel sound, can be a bit too serious.
and the drive is over a killing.
I play on CORT (M600 and G270) one of his characters a quie, singular.
I purchase with wheels, too practical. it's the little extra.
rapprot qualitprix the good I had to - 600
75 watts 8 Ohms
A clear channel and a channel in a saturated dclin overdrive and distortion gain more pchue name, so basically 3 channels with footswitch.
gain settings for all channels / input / output and bass / midrange / aigus.rverb. contour.
The rglages are simple, whether for one or other of the channels, we gain the RULES of the bass / mid / high, the output level and go. this is not an amp or it will take the head to find a sound, you plug the little scratches, it lights the rveil neighbor and after turning two three buttons we send the pure direct.
There is a small rverb that my taste is more gimmick than anything else. We can rgler contour at the channel level 'gain' cool.
This gives a good sound very easy matter since the amp rglages a hit the base. The guys who are working to challenge music nancy believed they had an amp to light the very first time they have played it. There have disassemble mm to be sure that there was no lamp pramp train but none of this is all transistor and gives ca.
The manual? not needed so the machine is simple
This amp suits me very well, either for or mtal rock. This is an amp with mm when a lot of mdiums I find, but gain with the gain of the bottom, bass / treble to maximum and the mini mediums, ca sends sec.
My guitar is a Jackson soloist team in SLSMG EMG 81/85, and I play multi without effect. I possde a Korg Ax 1500G and affirm that this type of multi effect can dnaturer carrment the sound of an amp of this type. Otherwise, I find this amp to him MRIT adding a small BOSS Super Chorus pedals, but that's according to the taste, I find just the lack of clean sound a little something.
Good sounds are Obviously I get dry and cold I saw the guitar, and I did not test the amp with other guitars.
I've had a few good months, it really is an amp that surpase other of its class I think.
It is really cool for her fet easy to use, it sends the sound, and then the report qualitprix course.
I have yet to exprience on this amp, but it left my air so that we do a good bit of road together two of us, so yes I would do the choices mm.

Transistor amp, 75 watts and a 12-inch HP.
Connectivity plutt complte: between Loudspeaker supplmentaire for the footswitch, headphone jack, effects loop ...
2 channels and a boost in the crunch channel, with contour rglage trs effective.
The more traditional rglages low mdium, aige and reverb.
Comes with footswitch in mtal (3 buttons: crunch, boost and reverb) and rollers.
Easy to get, thanks to the buttons on rglages effective.
The manual? No need.
For footswich is simple thanks to three LEDs that correspond to the three buttons, if light is turned on. simple.
This amp is a model of versatility.
Test with an Ibanez with a buddy and Willow's in store, this amp sounds fabulous.
Clear sound, crunch, saturated ... amp rpond well nuance of the game, he slams into funk and pummeled by heavy.
One day test with my friend several times in the shop (if in hindsight I change my mind, j'crirai public apology)
The most: the quality of sound, the formwork, the footswitch ...
Cons: Plastic knobs and rubber (note for those who practice it transpires, has slipped over the fingers)
Accessory comes with an amp that sounds hell, assembled in the United States, a report qualitprix amazing ...
I'll buy the 100 watt version, and I will test the full range lamp diponible in my friends shop of a famous Nogent sur Marne (whom I thank and hello by the way).
