For starters, it's a transistor amp head, 120W (do not hesitate to push the volume), 3-band EQ with two fully independent, which is an excellent point. In terms of connectors at the front we have: an input jack for the guitar, a footswitch input for the last entry and a line out (there is also a CD input, but I do not see the point for me anyway). At the rear there are two inputs (two baffles) Send one entry and one Return.
The connectors are basic but that's all you need.
Then come the effects, which are numerous and of very poor quality (digital forces) but it can be fixed with the purchase of real effects pedal. This is the only negative at this level. The rest is pretty good.
Setup is super simple, you hack a few minutes, and the chips are down. The manual? I do Do not be taken to the store where I am ais acquisition. In terms of getting a good sound, do not expect miracles ... it is a transistor amp. The EQ is not very accurate. We can turn the pots, one feels slightly changes between 0 and 10, which is a shame for such an amp head.
The clean channel is clean, round, clear and cold. The distortion lacks a little punch, but the problem can be adjusted with the button that boosts the distortion is supposed to "emulate" a tube amp (this is really THE big joke). Let's say for a transistor, it is doing not too bad.
I play everything: blues, rock, metal, lady gaga (hey yeah!)
The sound should be pretty good for blues and lady gaga, in what is for the bulk metal, it is better to add a good distortion pedal (and good cables, we often forget good cables). For my part, I've pasted an MXR M-116 amp and scratches entierrement wired with Monster Cable, and rendering is wonderful.
I play with a Epiphone les paul gibson pickups mounted with (490R and 498T), and there, the sound is more than drinking. I do not hate any sound, I find only ... not very balanced if one may say so. Missing a lil something I can not say.
I use it for 4 years, I tried a dozen amp head before, and this one seemed the best quality / price ratio. With experience and the tube amp I acquired a few months ago, I would do this choice for a certain complementarity between these two amps. So in conclusion, if you want her, do not buy it, but if you want a good mid-range amp, you agree fully.

Power: 120 watts
connectors: line out, headphones, input, speaker, bridging stro ...
Many effects of TRS with the same adjustable knob:
chorus (2 paramtres DIFFERENT), delay (4 paramtres DIFFERENT), reverb (2 paramtres), rotary, flanger, octaver and so on ...
2 chains, each with a qualisation: trebble, medium, bass, and distortion ... you rveiller dead!
Unfortunately we can not LEFM several effects them ...
Note the reserve of power of each effect is somewhat limited ... ...
The configuration is bone simple, no need for manual: you press a button to change the string, it's qualisation rule, rule on the distortion, a sound ... however, we must be careful about arpges in clean channel, the bass is almost rduire minimum, or a quarter ... and yes, it's a metalhead amp, the bass are out !
otherwise, the power of distortion is sufficient without being miraculous, so be careful, for a game around the ax trs fast tapping, legato, the round trip or sweeping, it is best to a couple of distortion pedals ...
Besides a, There are volume buttons on both channels ... The most beautiful surprise ...
Obviously, I have a tendency to love the distortion, rock and metal ... ... I love to play some blues and ska ... so I am a more or less down eclctique on the rock. By consquent, this amp should have done my whole style of music, and unlike what one may believe in the light, this amp appears polyvent trs!
I play on zenox Cort Z42 for rock-metal, and a semi-hollow piphone for ballads and blues.
The sounds are quite gnral dull, dark, dull or severe, without being inaudible, even enjoyable by becoming the costs. The rglages however quickly because of this sound serious.
And the channel is saturated apothose of metal! no complaints!
The sounds that I dtest? NO! I love them all!
I have been using trs short time, but its particularity remain easy to use fast an object in the background without any secret. I love the sound, power and versatility ... I like a little less the lack of saturation, the impossibility of LEFM various effects, and the trend will sound absolutely dark ... The main advantage is its price, pay 700 with the enclosure. Top tip! I tried a Vox Valvetronix before, and it's not great, there's much less distortion, it's harder matriser, berf is boring! In addition it is one of the best quality for the price of time mtalleux.
on the other hand, with the exprience, I know if I exprience this remake ... I'm an explorer!
amplification transistor 120 watt 2 channel
output line out, headphone, input cinch (RCA)
a clean and an overdrive that we dug the little button with a mid scoop that makes the sound more "modern"
eq severe acute independent medium on 2 channels
send a return
small effect not really integrate very interresting
simple plug and play the sound is reasonable sound is clear net cons must quibble a bit with the gain of the overdrive to get the desired grain
it is quite polivalent
The manual is clear enough and I
now serves as a power amp in a stereo configuration
I have a marshall mode oven so I use the preamp from the oven mode in which effects and which leaves the left and the marshall law in the laney
the eq is very effective with the preamp to your sound this amp can be very different from a setting and a guitar the other
AC is 5 years and I use this amp I had no knowledge of the heat tube amp when I find my purchase two months after my marshall amp on occasion small lampiotes it enriches my style and my way of playing if I had known that for the its true he was taking the necessary steps I have done so earlier he now serves as my 2nd amp with a 4x12 for a picture of my stereo effects
I lend to a concert to register another much softer than mine and the user was on his ass he was surprised by the attack now I think he has not had many opportunities to play with the 4x12 cabinet and ca ca plays in my opinion
I will experiment with a different choice, but with the lack of as value for money is reasonable
