All lamps, 5W, Class A. ..
A great look trs "Vintage" (if you like ...)
A single channel ...
Gain, Treble EQ Bass Medium, DSP (mutable), Reverb, Volume, Standby ...

UTILIZATION

Yeah, that's the problem though, on this amp, turn buttons, otherwise well nase ...
The manual is not used much if you already have an amp lamp on hand.
The DSP is not nothing, especially since it causes a espce blowing / whistling trsdsagrable, the delay is just drinking the chorus and flanger are of quality rather mdiocre. .. Epiphone sir but thought to put a button to transfer the thing is, the right ide of this amp ...

OVERALL OPINION

They are worth all, I fell for the Epiphone for its looks and its price (I got 175 Euros)
If I had not dja everything you need for scne, I never made the purchase, I wanted a small all-tube in order to operate the home, MODEL is suited for this purpose, it is not so small a, but do not use it on a scne without the transplant and getting in return, while at a bar, not too big ...
