« One heck of an amp! »

Publié le 06/01/11 à 17:04
Wow is all I can say to describe my initial reaction to this amp. The tone is very fluid and musical. Vintage in tone and sound but modern in the components, speakers, and parts. This amp just sings sweet tones and just hook it up with your favorite Fender or Gibson guitar for an experience you'll never forget.

SOUNDS

Just a straight up classic amp that has no bells or whistle, but just loads of tone. They put the best parts and hand wiring into this amp which is a production amp, but isn't in the attitude in the build of this amp.

I like this amp especially with a Fender Telecaster. The tone just matches much better together with this combination. The Strat sounds ok but not as fluid with the Tele.

OVERALL OPINION

For the money this is a much better deal than trying to find an old one and take it on stage with you. At new these amps come in at around $2000, which for a custom amp is a very nice deal.

I would recommend this amp to anyone seriously thinking about getting a classic fender tone amp. This will be the best sounding Fender you have heard other than an actual vintage piece.
