« Excellent vintage AMP, Good sound - Nice reverb »Publié le 11/26/19 à 00:36
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?

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.
