Tube amp, all lights, of course ...
40Watts rms.
Output 4 Ohms over a "ext. Speaker" then 2x8 ohms.

There are two channels, each with 2 inputs.
A master volume more
- The first is the simple theft, treeble, bass.
- The second is the channel greened / vibrato: vol. treeble, medium, bass, reverb, tremolo (speed + intensity
Ah yes, there is also a little each channel switch "bright"
So like effects: greened, and tremolo. No overdrive or similar.
Originally, there is a footswitch for effects, I did not. Replaced by a Boss FS-6

UTILIZATION

You plug it in and go.
With or without adjustment, the sound is gold.
More manual, the receiver must have changed hands several times and is older than me ...
But that's all normal to resolve.
I plugged into a fender baffle 2 * 12 of the same age or slightly older ...

SOUNDS

I had to change all the lights of the amp, they were still all original and with the miles, they eventually give up the ghost. It is not free to change a dozen lamps but when you reconnect, you understand why and when there are no regrets for your dough, that either ...

In terms of sound:

I'm pretty rock.
I tapper in, even in its clear, I am not so delicate ...
But this thing has a certain sound that you become as gentle as a lamb without spot thee, unintentionally ...
The reverb and tremolo are great, the only thing is that the tremolo is not very deep ... but hey, it should probably be a bit tired after 35 years ...

I plug it on a firm fender100 (2x12) from the same period and the sound is perfect.
It is "only" a 40Watts but it can go very loud, the lights, it has the trunk ...

I play it with us Start an std and Jaguar HH. And we can say that it was created for the stratum.
Not much to say except that it sounds beautiful, very very crystalline air.
Clear and distortion. Because when you plug the distortion, it flies away and you can bour in as a wild ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for several months.
I had to change all the lights, it cost me a bone. But I have no regrets, absolutely not. It's fantastic. Powerful yet very precise. Designed to perfection.
The value for money is not bad. amp costs € 450, a vintage fender cabinet around € 300 and it's better than what you find in combo for 700 or € 800 (the lamps, you change them anyway at some time or other) lead over the body, at this price, something like that, it is more ...

I do it again tomorrow if you must.

Is there a problem? I do not remember ...
