master (master volume), trebble, medium, bass, reverb and key "FAT"
which amplifies the incoming signal to the preamp and gives more 'body' in
config ultra simple since there is only one channel. We chose the sound: clean
or saturated, the settings of the equal.: I like the treble and
grave almost to the bottom and the mids to zero. (The inverse gives a sound
'Cardboard' - cold - .... like all the amps). Key and the 'FAT'
The manual is on 2 pages. Too bad it does not provide details on
the absence of standby precaution with a tube amp
(Wait 5 / 6 minutes after turning it off before moving ....).
With the adjustments described above, I get a pretty good sound, with
still good microphones.
It is perfect for what I play. If an amp worth
amended, it is the latter.
He began a terrible power.
A jack (misplaced) can interface to a speaker 8 ohms.
There are sites for improvements. (I think that apart
very expensive amps - Mesa Boogie kind - others may suffer
A low point would be the HP, but by exchanging 2 capacitors,
the problem is almost solved. This is a question of taste
each judge is.
I play Les Paul (microphones Burstbucker Pro), Telecaster (microphones
Nocaster), Strato (Fender pickups 69), Danelectro DC 59 (microphones
original). The sound is very good and very dynamic
I've had two weeks is my third amp lamp ..... and my 6 or 7th
amp, just confused.
I tried a ENGL Thunder (clean channel too cold), Laney TT50
(Lack of dynamics (the lamps?)) And the best of the best: a Fender Hot Rod
Deluxe ... but too heavy, too powerful. So I took her little brother.
With the Telecaster, I have a country sound that I could not have
Blackheart BH5 with my or my Laney VC15.
The grain is there. And dynamics brings incredible pleasure
It is much lighter than the Deluxe, but it is still his
.... So much hp at your disposal (40 to 300 euros) and
some capacitors to change (from 0.40 to 6 euros) ... and you improve
One of the most used amps.
But I chose a problem that should not be on an amp
this brand especially with the publicity they are, namely:
In connection, I had a background noise. They were the lights
amplification (2 x Sovtek / Groove tubes). I have
replaced by JJ EL84 (matched, of course, the bias is adjusted every
alone, therefore no intervention at this point) ... and much less
noise. the rest came from the background noise preamp 3 lamps,
because once replaced by jjECC83, I had no sound
! Not these terrible Sovtek / GT: (so note -1
In addition, an internal label reminds the references of lamps:
12AX7-A so why they put 12AX7-WC?
1st small downside is the 'dashboard' with all its
Adjustments: First it is unreadable (on reflection mirror surface) then
it is upside down!
In contrast to the best 'dashboard' is the well Blackheart
2nd small drawback: tour equilibrium to connect to another
hp.Le jack HP Ultra is misplaced.
For these two drawbacks: -1
That's it, I found my amp considering a lot of
I think the replacement of some condos (filter
power ...) good brand (Orange Drops - T & T ...)
already provide some nice improvements on this ... Sacred FENDER
R dynamics Ouaouuu .... I do not say.
