45W tube amp, everything more vintage.
No effects loop, no footswitch.
Two channels, one "Normal" and "Bright".
Three band EQ plus a knob "Presence".
The sound comes in four 10-inch HP Jensen.
The amp is a bit heavy.

UTILIZATION

There is no manual.
May be downloaded from the Fender site but I did not go see it.
It's vintage.
One branch, there are four buttons to turn and go!
The sound of this amp is great.
You will take him too far in the distortion, but used in a simple and flexible that you will make good.
In addition, this is the kind of amp that you can not refuse a good overdrive pedal.

SOUNDS

Here are my settings: Presence 6, Bass 9, 8 Middle, Treble 6, Vol. Bright 4.5
I note, however, that I couple this amp via an A / B Box, a Mesa Boogie Mark 2B. I use the Bassman only for clean sounds (by lowering the volume a bit of guitar) with its settings;
Both amps together is my weapon of mass destruction!
I plug in all kinds of guitars (single coil, P90 and humbucker) and he eats everything!
Snapping sound, biting and accurate Bassman is ideal for clean sounds to crunches.
Related to the heat, the roundness and the brutality of Boogie, here is a couple of hell.

OVERALL OPINION

A little over a year that I use and I think I finally found the configuration that I really like.
I have not tried anything else, but it's a real thunderbolt.
There are many great amps. This one is part of and in addition it is mythical.
The only downside is that it is an amp still expensive, but the amps that come tickle are as expensive or more.
