UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, a little too well ...

SOUNDS

I play punk-hxc (cf. thrice Death By Stereo Strung Out ...) with an Ibanez RG or (neo)-trash-metal on a Baritone Ltd and in both cases I find the sound distortion but very adequate a little too cold in the clear.
The distortion is fat and should rather on rhythm guitar, rock edgy things to extremes.
The only problem is that we have just one type of sound (but a very good sound) and the EQ does not change very little.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the warp 7 for 10 months and I do not change it for some time.
The distortion is really good even if it is better suited to the rhythm. You have to love the sound but it suits many styles, not just the neo-metal Disagree as they say sometimes the clear sound is poor but not really the interest of such an amplifier.
I got it for 944 euros and I think nine is a very good price / quality ratio and few have such a transistor amp sound. I part with it if one day I go to the amplification tube but not before I think.
This choice I would do without hesitation.
