No difficulties to adjust the amp, you get the sound you want in Triffouille a little change of distortion is stunning, we feel the difference.
Manual clear and precise, no need to dwell on it.


I play such important rock, and he comes out with flying colors.
I find the super clean (even on an electro-acoustic ca spring well).
We get a good range of sounds, for my part I am mostly a distortion of American, we can have a very hard distortion in moving towards the British.
I play it with a Hagstrom F20T.


I use it for 2 months.
What I like is the ability to change the type of distortion.
Quality / price ratio great for me who have bought used, no complaints.
This choice I would do without problems.
