lamp and transistors and integrated circuits. A dangerous mix!
Power: 5 watts
Basic settings (3tone, 1 volume)

UTILIZATION

The sound was good at first, until a horrible hum come and disturb.
The hum is present at power filaments! ! !

SOUNDS

His oriented "metal", which suited me well, on a strat.
Without too much saturation, rock and countermelodies with "bottleneck" went well.

OVERALL OPINION

After less than a month of use, this amp broke down.
The pattern is not found, the lamp power is a rarity unparalleled and the two transistors "drivent" are fragile and not found, and the capacitors that isolate.
Despite my skills (not to brag ... I have 20 years of experience), it is the trash has ended the beast. (150 € to get a speaker!)
I am disgusted! How can we risk the cohabitation of transistors and lamps also taking some precautions perspective isolation (a simple capacitor when slap made damage) and how can we provide materials without pattern?
