Config very simple, clear manual
Very easy to use it is a treat,
I love the fact that it is under the feet of the possibility a 4-button footswitch to switch channels and effects
(Clean, OD1, OD2, modulation delay, reverb)
Nothing to say about the effects it's upscale and reverbs are beautiful
In terms of style I play pure blues to albert king through the gary moore from hendrix,
the good punchy rock well and also well-Blue Bossa on!
A very good versatility that this amp has great cash pedals for example metal ...
cash it much better than a tube amp pedals
(Compared to a fender hot rod on which the sound lacked definition with several style TS9 pedal, boss bd2, wampler ...)
And no more constraints lamps so no risk (transport ...)
More I tried not a tube amp and it and probably one of the best transistor amp.
Yet once the clear is a treat!
I use it with 2 guitars a strat Deluxe us and gibson les paul standard, hum!
sounds are very clean and clear, the guitar fit perfectly into the mix and the bass is always delicious.
In rehearsal, I'm always surprised by the sound quality!
-In concert resumed on a sound that is a treat
This is a very powerful amplifier with 160W sending it heavy and depending on the room it can easily pass PA
In terms of pedals I need because the sounds of the amp suits me perfectly I just kept a boss blues driver as I msers Boost on solos (or a very light crunch that makes me 3 channels !)
Distortions are really beautiful nothing wrong! and the clear everyone believe hear a tube amp premium
About the tuner is top, accurate and convenient
The price of this amp in 2004 was € 1,000 and I understand why, if you are lucky enough to find one OCCAZ go for it! but even in the U.S. it is almost impossible to find people who keep it!
Really cut out for the stage rehearsal and I also used my home, even with 160 watt it is quite possible
Manage the volume
So you understand I am very satisfied!
And this amp made me say no to modeling (before I had an eleven rack that I plugged into a sound system, but I was never satisfied, now I really found the sound with this amp rare to find!
Here Specials € 855

VOXsounds's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is a transistor amp with Fender DSP technology (digital), a power of 160W / 4 ohms (or 100W / 8 ohms). It features 2 x Speakers Celestion G12T-100.
September filters are incorporated into the system to refine the sound according to its style.
Regarding the DSP there are 16 types of reverb and 6 different effects, adjustable level and fx / time / rate.
The amp has a clean channel and 2 drive channels and connectivity issue, we have a line out XLR output and an effects loop. The footswich is very convenient (and very robust): The four buttons allow 1 - 2-channel saturation (1 or 2) 3-4-effects reverb '.
Note a built-in tuner. Very practical and specific.
The signal from the preamp is not processed by the equalization circuit.
Boost the treble, especially recommended for humbuckers type "Humbuckers"
The highs are cut, particularly recommended for its clear Jazz
Boost the bass, especially effective to swell the sound of single coil pickups
Mediums are cut with a boost on the low, particularly effective for the restoration of distorted sounds "modern"
A major peak in the mid recalling a wha-wha pedal stuck in the middle of the action, ideal for solos who need to cross the rhythm section.
Simulates the sound of an electro-acoustic guitar with a boost at high frequencies and low frequencies, with the best clear channel "normal"
In short, everything is there: this amp is very convenient, comfortable and efficient. I put clear 10.
You branches, you set up (you turn the knobs for 2 minutes the first time) and it sends! The sound is obviously typed Fender and even if it's not a lamp, the sound is really beautiful.
The manual? It is not needed!
I put clear 10.
So I play this silly with: be my G & L Tribute S500 or my fender jaguar or is my Gibson The Paul. Level effect, in addition, an RMC 3 Wha enough.
The sound is magnificent both in clean drive. Emphasize the clean sound would be useless (fender) on the one drive, it is a musical ... An agreement is enough to realize it. Especially fitting that even if the drive, it will be offered a range of sounds to give you shivers of happiness (well you understand I think I'm completely charmed).
The drive 2 is also excellent, and there's something for everyone ...
Seriously, this amp is very versatile, some say it's a defect, it would be if the claim had to type in all registers without actually doing with a guitar suited to his style and setting, it is find happiness.
Personally, I play funk rock with my band, punk with a friend of a friend and soul of the blues when I'm alone (which the spleen) and of the fender me out every sound and every time, I ' have the LE!
Finally, the filters (or stamps) are formidable efficiency.
I put clear 10.
It is ideal for the stage (25 kg: it is equipped with wheels) and for recording. For those who do not want to end up with tons of pedals with the feet but just what is needed is still the ideal amp. Depending on the configurations of play there are also versions Champion 300, Deluxe 900 (careful not to be confused with Deluxe 90 ...) and training 1000.
Well, this amp it's all good. The price new: You will find between 850 and € 1000, (eg is the difference between the VPC and Music "Leader "...).
I put clear 10.
AFTER THREE YEARS OF USE: Well I have not changed my amp but honestly it crossed my mind. I almost take an all-tube (not a transistor, it would avail, he is already among the very best) but in the end I kept for its convenience (the DSP-a flat, however: effects not save settings, the built-in tuner, XLR out) and for the right sound it gives off even though I no longer use the drive of the amp but a tube distortion. The regret is that he has no master volume, the canaus each with volume. It also has a little breath, but nothing bad, it surprised me at first, but I made any more gaffe ...
Its main strength: the sound: to tell you on the stage of Rockstore we shared the bill with a group that the guitarist has toured the group of Carlos Santana. He was playing on my amp, after the concert he was delighted with the sound: he believed to play on a tube amp!
To sum it all up, this amp gives me satisfaction ...
