Value For Money : Excellent
- What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor, ...)?
Transistor amp

- What is the power delivered?
65 watts (more than enough for cafe / concert and rehearsals, so.)

- What connection?
1 guitar input, 1 CD / Tape input, 1 line out XLR (in practice concert)
1 entrance effects, effects 1 output, 1 switch input, 1 output external speaker

- What are the settings, effects?
loop effects (reverb, delay, flanger, slap back, chorus, tremolo)
3 band equalizer one for each channel (with what we can juggle sold thanks to the optional switch)
clear channel: a neutral / shiny button (to the sound is more or less brilliant so)
overdrive channel: a button USA / UK (the USA distortion is darker and more incisive UK)


- Is the configuration simple?
bah is an amp what ... (read yes)

- Gets it easy to sound good?
Yes, the settings are simple. careful though not to overdo effects (well that's my opinion)

- Is the manual clear and sufficient?
there is a manual


- Will it fit your style of music?
I have a rock band for which he is more or less in the case against my funk / jazz, it sounds too cold.

- With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I play with a Jet Lag (3 single coil) and an Artisan (2 humbuckers)
For rock, it sounds not bad.

- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat", ....)?
In clear channel, one can have crystal clear sound thanks to the "bright" mode, the "neutral" mode provides a neutral (as the name suggests): I play not on effects pedals but it could be interesting that case.
Saturated, you can either have a fat (fashion USA) or a more aggressive and biting (UK mode)

- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
For my rock band, I use the UK fashion and it is enough that we are looking (I use almost exclusively the saturated channel)
However, to play jazz that's not it: the sound clearly lacks roundness.

I put it 6/10 Because at that price, it's still very correct.


- How long have you use it?
6 months

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
it is lighter than my old amp (Fender FM 212 R), but I come back: clean sounds are insufficient to jazz.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
uh yeah I tried the FM212R, Marshall (which I loathe), Vox ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?
The price / quality ratio is good, that's why I bought it.

- With experience, you do again this choice ...?
At the time when I bought it, he quickly needed a new amp for concerts, and my budget was limited.
If I was in that situation again, I would do this choice, but I save to change and move to the wholes lamps (incomparable to any point of view ... especially the price)
6/10 for this amp: Do not kid ourselves, it's not a very good amp but if you are looking for a solution to play at ease again as concert with a somewhat limited budget, it is very well.
