« Excellent vintage AMP, Good sound - Nice reverb »

Publié le 11/26/19 à 00:36
Value For Money : Excellent
Audience: Anyone
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.
