15 W tube amp, so powersoaking which allows to 1/5/15w, convenient, 1 EQ 2 channels, and enough settings to carve out a sound as we like.
I linger not here, the details are easily found elsewhere.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, of course, I recommend not to skimp on hacking at the sound, because the range is large enough: play on the input gain, drive, EQ course. It is a joy but requires a little getting used to when you're not used to having such a reaction, such as the volume.
Its small size is also great practice for someone who needs to carry around the weekly mini. In this regard, it is also very well made (thank you German) and pay your fine packs of beer over the front of the 205. ;)
The power attenuator is also very convenient to play apart '/ room by pushing slightly lamps without shout the neighborhood. That said, do not expect to have the sound can be achieved at full power.

SOUNDS

The clean channel fast enough crunch, which is perfect for me to go to the rock / stoner light, but that may be harmful for those who want a sound very jazzy crystallin.
But I play mostly distortion, sound on Doom / Black / Sludge / Hardcore and I must say that there, I was hooked: I wanted to sound pretty hot, now and at ease in the grave (tuning in D or above). I use a Jackson DK2 above, I think change soon because I feel it a little train before this magnificent little amp. It is also perfectly possible to go into sound extreme Death Metal style, but then you lose a bit in sharpness which is a shame, no, this amp is perfect for a big round or serious distortion will shake the male attributes of your audience.
Because yes, I was hesitant to lack of power, but in reality, 15W, I do not even have to shoot more than 5 or 6 to cover my drummer / bassist (not soft), it's pretty impressive.
I put 10 because I do not see the fault might be to find, especially for the price.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been about 3 months I'm playing it and I'm a fan, I tested a Laboga Cayman (too cold), an H & K tubemeister (too far), a Blackstar HT and even a Tiny Terror, and I finally chose the Gigmaster for which it was a real thunderbolt, I dare say!
What could I possibly miss him? The absence of a switch provided on the edge, and being really broken-burne, the absence of EQ per channel ... Except that when you look at the price, it can not be as demanding as if we put € 1500.
This choice I would do so, no doubt.
