UTILIZATION

Setup is simple, you plug it sounds

EQs are not exceptional, they do not act on his lot

SOUNDS

Sound:

in general, it sounds good for an amp in this range. The distortion sound better if they are plugged into the loop (?!?)

The overdrive is very runny. I never use it

It is not as dynamic a Valvestate Marchall (equivalent price / epoch), but it supports additional distos better.

But we can make a good amp if you understand this:

Like any amp, there are three stages:
The preamp: laney typical top 90's not
Amplification: not bad at all (see below)
Broadcasters: indestructible

How to have a good sound with this amp:
USE THE LOOP! I plug my boss gt3 (and I use the simulators as a preamp which however are not considered as good simulators) and frankly the sound is good. To say, when playing in a band in the presence of a tube amp, the amp transistors become "invisible" and well connected with this, I get a momentum equivalent to blackstar.

So in "alone" 6 / 10 in "simulation + amplification" 8 / 10

OVERALL OPINION

My first amp

He has 17 years, with the exception of Led clean / overdrive flashing all the time (but does not change the sound), nothing to say, this amp is aging well, it is indestructible.
