Damping button.

The delay effects chorus, flanger, phaser and vibe are not cumulative but used one at a time via a rotary knob.
It is possible to store its effect settings via the "store" button.

UTILIZATION

The configuration could not be more simple and clear.
The manual is also clear.
Getting a good sound against claims by some time.

SOUNDS

I play mostly Heavy Metal.
The clean sounds are good but the crunch and obtained by suitable adjustment of the gain key can neither make nor heavy hard rock "hairy".
The onboard effects are to my taste very bad quality and settings are approximate and are via knobs.
Conversely, buttons Treble, Middle and Bass are doing their job.
Gain knobs, Volume and Master are very sensitive and difficult to resolve, especially if you want to play at low volume.

For my part I use it as a simple power amp on the clean channel. I connected a pre-amp, compressor, equalizer Presonus Eureka between my guitar and amp. This allows me to bring more dynamic and a more solid sound.
To this I add my pedalboard Korg AX 3000G effect and sometimes an old Zoom 606 II which plays its role perfectly in this config.

The overall sound of this amp without pre-amp is hollow and makes a little "box", but if you include a pre-amp that sends heavy! The power is really there!

Connected to a Marshall 4X12 where it really starts to be very interesting.

The guitars I use are essentially: Lag The Blues Californian series and Ibanez RGA 42 B.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this amp there about 8 months.
I use it live and repeats. There is plenty powerful for the scene caf conc 'or transplanting on a big stage. In repeats I do not use only 25% of its capacity.
I love the look "carbon" of this model (C FX).
Power suits me perfectly but it is not suitable for playing in the apartment because too powerful.
Sound without pedals and without pre-amp is disappointing for the style I like, however, it may well be the case for the view pop rock "light".

Concerning the quality / price I lack objectivity because I bought new only 30% of its value during the liquidation of a music store.
The new price is around 400 euros. However, I feel that for the price it is sold usually interesting.

I have at my disposal a Marshall JCM 800 Lead Series 4x12. There really is no comparison between these two amps. JCM thanks to its lamps surpasses widely. CFX combo is convenient because not too heavy and it does not take up too much space in the car.

This amp is ideal for working in repeats, see for concerts in small venues to the condition of having either a pre-amp or a simulator lamps. Plugged into a 4x12 you get something really right for an amp at this price.

It is not made to play at low volume sound as this cup.

It is made for the stage because it takes up the sound a bit to realize that he really has under the capo!

The damping function is interesting, it gives two types of sounds.
A modern type and a more vintage kind.

SOUNDS

Blues-brothers to Iron Maiden, it is perfect! blues, rock, heavy etc ... it goes everywhere!
I do not put 10 because it is a transistor amp, good at the same time I knew what I was buying.

OVERALL OPINION

Yes it is a transistor but dépote really well! but must take a minimum of time to appropriate adjustments to their sound.
