    80W transistor amp
    Overdrive from the amp simulation grains lamps. Hughes & Kettner was among the first to be interested in the simulation of various brands of amps.

    UTILIZATION

    Super simple setup.
    Versatile amp even if it regrets the lack of sound palette.
    Frankly, the clean sound is pretty good, although I also like the sound crunchy.
    The overdrive is good for a beginner, but you get tired after a while but adding pedals, amp plays its role.

    I changed the HP for HP 100W Celestion and the sound has changed beyond all sound very precise and incisive ... stunning.

    I changed the HP for HP 100W Celestion and the sound has changed beyond all sound very precise and incisive ... stunning.

    SOUNDS

    He no longer suits me because I used as the first amp up quite advanced level.
    After adding lamps pedal as ToneLab SE, I became a little more demanding and fell back down on a all-tube amp, the Mesa Boogie Single rectify 50W.

    So, no, I am convinced qu'n transistor amp can compete with a tube amp but yes this amp was not ashamed, and is ideal for a beginner.

    Besides, I'm going to give it to my niece who plays for 2 years.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have for almost 20 years and I sometimes use it to see core plug the HP directly on the second sotie my tube amp and there it sends.

    No, at that time I have tried many aps models in these input ranges had the Marshall 100W transistor, the Peavey but the sound was so shit ... The Hugh and Kettner although less known to the time really came out of the lot (I said in the entry).

    Amp transistors while (+ prampli amplifiers) dlivrant, as its name implies, 80Watts (RMS?).
    Level connections, the ingnieurs from H & K were able to make a minimum ncessaire ... let me explain:
    - 2 channels ("Clear" and "Lead"). Note the switch prsence a "Boost" to give more depth to the channel Lead (by acting primarily I think the bass and mid / low)
    - For numrer:
    Ct clear: a clean bass volume + 1 + 1 + 1 trble MIDD.
    Ct Lead: Gain 1 + 1 + 1 bass + 1midd trble Lead + 1 + 1 volume boost
    Common: 1 + 1 reverb master volume.

    Not to mention the connection prvue for an effects loop (send + return), a Line Out / Rec Out I've never served, and finally the possibility to connect a speaker (I do prcise impdance not ... I do not have the amp under the eyes ... but would appear to be of 4 Ohms)

    The attax rvle will therefore be particulirement complete an amp in this range ... (I am available for 1100F opportunities. (170)! Big deal!

    Compare what is comparable amps ... all transistors 100W 50W ... He does not srement ple figure: 9 / 10.

    UTILIZATION

    Evokes as above, the faade is simple, complte without quivoque possible.
    It seems to me that rglages could behave more Manir "fine" ... It is clear that the qualiseurs fiddling, the sound evolves ... but not quite substancial Manir I got ...
    This is mainly felt in lead channel.
    Otherwise, it's the perfect machine in need of nophyte powerchords.
    I will take away some small points in the section sonorits...9/10 for use (because I'm afraid to put 10)

    SOUNDS

    I worships the sound, the grain, the myth Marshall ... Obviously, the two types of sounds that have little in common ...
    But do not dnigrons the talent of our German neighbors, they were able to take advantage of the technology era to forge an own characters. For me, any lack of smoothness of ... "fat".
    But I expect to be a guitarhro to invest in the Marshall lamp ...
    The range offered is not ngligeable ... finally I put 7 / 10 evokes for the reasons above.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Trs of good stuff for a price, well, more than reasonable ...
    This is not the trs upscale, but I am convinced the price of having an affair ...
    It's characters, a personality that make a particular MODEL, "vintage" because it is more dsormais product in the shops H & K. ..
    I put 8/10...et is non negotiable.
    PS: all this is said based on my gear and my ears (Cort X9 team in Seymour Duncan + Ears functional if indeed they can still be ...)

    Actually hybrid transistor / lamp that gives it its personality
    Well equipped with input / output
    But taking the line gives a Deguelle Better put a microphone in front of LA and that's fine

    UTILIZATION

    Fairly simple to use although the Drive channel does not allow too much to have a crunch sound as powerful as the clear sound of the clean channel against the other as soon as a little more saturated, the two channels are balanced in volume
    Nickel otherwise

    SOUNDS

    With my Dot makes this amp great! I use the crunch by making the volume issued Clean thoroughly and Master quarter

    SOUNDS

    With my Dot makes this amp great! I use the crunch by making the volume issued Clean thoroughly and Master quarter
    He's a very round, which is well suited to my style but is also capable of sending a good saturation for those who love
    At this price it is the amp that's fine for rock blues and even jazz (I've done very well but it will be my little Gibson is the cause)
    HOWEVER ensuring (mine is eight years old) from seizing the pots and break it a hassle to have the same sound once on the other
    His problem: May have a little electronic sound sucks with some guitars (Aria Pro II for example). Its that generalizes to all the guitars (Gibson who was so well) in aging
    Secondhand to pay attention to the age of the amp

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a great amp for this price range that brings an original sound with the personality that can compete with some small tube amps whose prices are much higher
    Ideal for a good start with an amp that will follow your progress without flinching I still use it sometimes, after twelve years of guitar (instead of my Hot Rot Deluxe) for the particular sound it gives and I like
    I put 8 / 10 because of its price / quality ratio

    The Attax 80 amp is a transistor that has an output of 100 watts as its sound does not indicate.
    Connection intput faade in front, effects loop send / return, and Hp rec-out into 16 or 8 ohms.
    A clean channel with its own legalization (clean volume, bass / mid / TREB)
    A lead channel with its own legalization + boost function (gain, bass / mid / TREB, lead master)
    1 gnrale legalization with a master and were desirous rverb common to two channels

    UTILIZATION

    Extremely simple setup, 2 channels, that you ask for.
    The original sounds obtained may agree to a budding guitarist dpart, but once we knocked a lot, we realize that this amp lacks a bit of PCHE, nothing to correct this like a little treble boost that allows clear channel dj cruncher and saturated channel to provide the saturation crmeuses Brian May.
    Other inconvnient, a breath as you push the volume or earnings (dj Open quarter it looks like a gas factory)
    Sounds cleans are not the strong point of the Attax 80, they remain in the middle of what was proposed in the German mark this era as amplifier transistors. Since H & K has come a long way.
    No manual included, so I can not say anything about this

    SOUNDS

    It is currently the only amp I have so I do not have much choice, I'm actually an absolute fan of amp lamps (type or Hotrod AC30). For a transistor amp when it comes out pretty even, once his assistant a few good pedals.
    We can not say that the crystal is specially in terms of its sound with respect to the crunch and distos it will delight fans of blues, rock and even mtal (but hey it must be the inflate with MT-2, or a Fulldrive)
    I can not say I'm enchanted by the sounds original Currently, besides the rverbe is not really effective. My next amp will be an all-tube is sr.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have over 10 years, it is what I do for home, but once you rev ​​it shows pushes its limits, the sounds are pretty rough even if your shovel n does not ensure.
    Currently, if j'tais beginners, I will inquire normment before you buy (but then it is no longer fabriqud'autant more than the current bulbs and hybrid amplifiers are quite affordable and offer sound much more favorable.
