120-watt hybrid amplifier with a 12AX7 tube preamp in
3 channels: 1 clean and 2 saturated.
The clean has a 3-band EQ, a bright switch (adds treble to have a more slamming the type of guitar), adjustable reverb.
Both channels saturated (Drive 1 and Drive 2) share a 3 band equalizer and a reverb setting. They each have a volume, gain, and a switch digging scoop some medium and boost the bass and treble to get a bigger sound. The Drive has a more dynamic sound, less saturated, rather typed vintage, good for the crunch, the rock overdrive. Drive 2 is the most modern, is for large saturations.
So no master volume, but three volumes for three channels. That said it is quickly resolved.
Connectivity: an effects loop, a footswitch for the reverb and 3-channel, 2 speaker outputs, and a switch "vibe" that has an effect on the inexplicable sound, it feels like we're playing in a stadium with a wall of amp (it is precisely when you play alone in your room). And most important: the input jack to put a guitar that does everything else becomes useless!
Recognize that there are many buttons, many possibilities, many equalizations and effective switch that will further alter the equalization. So it's not plug and play, but we easily get a good sound just by putting the equalizer in the middle. We understand very quickly how to use each channel. The trick for me the longest is to choose if you put that famous switch scoop on the saturated channel equalization and touch to find a balance between the two channels saturated.
I read once of the manual, it explains the settings and connection all that ... nothing extraordinary.
My opinion is that it is very versatile, clean does not saturate even when the volume grows well (at least with my guitars) and can be hot or slamming depending on settings. It is rather neutral so it takes out the effects pedals.
The Drive is perfect for a blues-rock, 70 rock, metal and even the old school and gain by pushing the switch with the scoop.
The Drive 2 is perfect for metal, modern rock, and everything is based on large palm mute. The sound is always clear even to gain back, if only one branch on the good cab.
The reverb is good without more, a little cold, it can not really do things hovering in the radiohead but it does a good job anyway.
I play 70s rock (led zep ...) and stuff more typical 90 years (grunge, punk, metal) and overall it can do all this without problem, but to find my personal sound I need something more dirty, it is too precise!
I have used and tested with a schecter C1 + (a kind of super strat splittable humbuckers) and a standard strat US, each time the sound is respected, for me it went better with Shecter but it is a matter taste.
I tested a lot of pedals on it and make it all well, no inconsistency. I have a tube distortion hotbritish I've always loved, I did my setting for my sound by putting it on the clean channel, after I tried to imitate the sound with the drive 2. Verdict: the two can drive almost the same sound, less accurate in acute but more dynamic! The pedal is € 130-140 of Cygnus, the amp € 150-170 ...
I've had a year and a half, a few rehearsals, unfortunately no stage (project fell through). 120 watts is more than enough even with a cab that sends through.
I had not tested or bad amp before this one, among others: Peavey ValveKing, Classic 30, Marshall Valvestate, Marshall 6100 ... She buries the ValveKing (all but flat lamp), much better than any Valvestate, it is very different from the classic 30 therefore difficult to compare, and it is far from the quality of marshall 6100 as part of the best amps ever made I believe! But it is a very good amp for the price in Cygnus.
Since I am no longer a scene, it's not exactly the sound I need, and I buy stuff for the bass, I remember that I sold it on this site. It may seem little purpose but read the reviews on Harmony Central: they are better than mine!
