Gustavo_Carbone's review"Excellent vintage AMP, Good sound - Nice reverb"

Yamaha JX50
What musical styles do you use this amp for?
My main go-to's include surf, indy rock of these days(think War on drugs, Tame impale), lots fo 60/70's bands, but also some more crunchy stuff (think Led zep, King-gizzard). It never dissapointed me on any of these..
There is a big wad of reverb on the unit, yet if you want to go really dreamy/washed out you will have to add a pedal. But that is everything i expect from an amp that is not a line-6!
Same thing for distortion, I can play 90% of all the songs i want to play with the pull-knob distortion on there. Yet for that extra 10% i will just use some fuzz pedal i will have lying around, All good!

Given its weight and power, is this amp feasible for practicing, rehearsing with a band, and/or using live?
Simple answer here: it's small enough to use at home.
If needed you can crank it up a lot! but of course for bigger performances someone is going to have to put a microphone in front. Again nothing new here.

Are the clean, crunchy and distorted sounds suitable? Are the parameters efficient and effective?
See first section :)

What are the pros and cons of this amp?
Pro: It's a very good, versatile amp. And it is one of the best transistor amps i have.
Con: The speaker-cone might not be the best one i've ever seen, Yet this could also be related to it's age.. i dunno.

Transistor amplifier, two inputs, footswitch, fifty watts-as its name suggests-with memory volume push / pull, bass, mid, treble, reverb and Celestion memory.


Setup could not be more simple and sound quality.


Volume Push / Pull skips a clear saturated each being of good quality.
The sounds are assessed for each ear as each is different, personally I liked them.


I always do but I use it most, a few crackles when moving the amp but normal since the time bomb of a sudden contact and a review would not be superfluous.
And since I acquired a Fender Vibro field of 69 30 watts, as an entity say, small but what a sound! The need to power it back just in PA. Then a Pod XT Live with moult amp models that we can add new (good product as well).
I did not have to try other models in this power range is no comparison.
Value for money given the number of cubic meters of water flow under the bridge I find it very difficult to remember how much I paid, used, my first amp.
As for the experience and look what it did today, what would be my choice? A vintage amp with its own sound, a modern vintage sound amplifier, a multi-modeling amp ..? Very difficult!
Regarding the notes I never put ten, beside Me there is no perfection ... and then the Ego and the color is not it?
