Good wholesale:

. Rectification transistors
. Input low / high gain
. Poweramp effects loop in / out Preamp
. 2 Button Footswitch / 3 functions included

I insist on the finish with emerald ivory buttons, it's really beautiful.
Aesthetically, this amp is very charismatic, one notices!

UTILIZATION

The configuration is very simple.

A switch ON / OFF switch and STANDBY. heat lamps very quickly. We light it sounds.
1 EQ BASS, MEDIUM, TREBLE, acting as the clean channel for the drive.
3 channels: one clean, one drive, a drive More (sort of vintage distortion).

1 knob Presence
1 knob Reverb

The use is not difficult, very few pots, and the feeling of not having to face a panel of Airbus A380 as on other amps.
It finds its ultra fast.
The manual is complete, the electronic circuit is provided, but personally I've never really needed to see ...

Only drawback, the abesence Control of reverb on the footswitch. The latter can be operated only by raising the knob of ampicillin.

SOUNDS

Waaoooo! I liked it right away.
Crisp, clean and powerful. It collects the effects pedals perfectly. I use a Jeckyll & Hyde 2, overdirve TS808 sounds like thunder!

CAUTION: The hot rod is an amp that sounds very serious! it really surprised me at first. I then realized that users of hot rod had all seen the same thing. To optimize the sound, adjusting the equalizer relieve much bass. Personal knob the bass between 2 or 3 as required. But it goes to 10! but after the 4, power bass you scotch, and it becomes difficult to play in clean neck pickup. You just have to know.

The clean is beautiful, the typical fender clean with a very hot vintage reverb.
The overdrive sounds at very blues has a fat enough grain, I like a lot, although I privilédie the overdrive of my Jekyll.
More Drive channel is often criticized. I m expecting a so infamous porridge. Not at all! Sure, it's a very vintage distortion (not made for metal) but when you push the drive is approached Marshall's, very ROCK!

OVERALL OPINION

Bon ben ... it's my amp, voila!
not worth Checher I also have n as benefits. The HP 30 Celestion makes a difference, it sounds, it's powerful, handsome, charismatic. This amp turns your guitar into a formidable weapon.
I use it for the past 5 months.
I like his simpmicité, and the class of sound, regardless of the channel settings.
I stress again that the hot rod series is saturated (deliberately?) Serious, we have to go with the molo knob low.
I played for a long time on a Laney chromo-zone, there is no comparison, especially in terms of ease of use.
The 40 W sound very much! in my old local repeats (about 25 m2) can not climb above 3 (out of 10).
The price is quite large, requiring limited series, but not excessive for a product in this category. I really regret not having chosen the version of "emerald".
This amp is a favorite, I'm crazy, I think I will keep forever.
