Hotone Audio British Invasion
Small transistor amp the size of a smartphone. A connection to the hair: headphone jack and loop in addition to classic.
Usual 5 knobs: bass, mid, treble, gain level.

The effects loop is really a plus at this price to incorporate spatial effects.


A manual the size of a playing card ... Not really useful at this level it's plug and play.

The knobs are very reactive, it is possible to manage its "sound."


So let's be clear on two points:
- This is a transistor amp, do not expect there sound lamps.
- The AC30 model is cited in inspiration, here again, do not believe in miracles.

But damn, what a sound!

I mostly play what is classified as the "British Invasion", ca falls what is the name of the amp. We recover the sound of those years. A crunch from hell, easily adjustable with the volume of the guitar and very responsive to EQ settings. You can spend velvety crunch to overdrive anything sharp with the setting. I play very easily pop, but it is credible Deep purple too!

Everything is very reactive in the game, and dynamic enough to burst altogether. The lamps are not there? Too bad, I tell you, this is an excellent transistor, well above the average.

I even added the pedal Hotone Blues and there will pair well together, everything what we want from jazz to hard rock. The foot.
(Note that I play micro simple and p90 only)


I use it for a month and I'm always so surprised by the little beast. How do engineers at Hotone to reduce heads at this level? ! It is absolutely insane!

I do not have a cab to test, but I guess it must do so too. However I have doubts about the power, enough for a repeat? And plugged into the PA? I do not know but I do not think AC is the purpose of the head.

The headphones at home or jamming with friends, the walk I tell you!

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
the cheap side makes me a little scared and the PSU as big as bebete, suddenly, it seems that it will burn out in two to two, but not
the plus side, the size / rendering report is amazing.
ds is a branch 2X212 and it is hallucinatory in the sound through the headphone jack, and it looks like a nervous SansAmp.
and most importantly, to my knowledge, none of these have the effect loop in this price level.
suddenly, it adds a dly an appointment and was an amp worthy of the name

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, never before I thought it was blah, except hughes and Kettner or orange, but it is not the same budget and the same technology
