All tube combo amp
Wholesale 40 Watts RMS
3 channels: Normal, Drive and More Drive (mini boost which thickens the sound)
Classic Fender Reverb


The use of volume is not easy to measure because the knob is not very progressive.
and we must move an inch to get a sound chamber volume
at concert volume.

Otherwise side equalization:
- It is common to two channels.
- I've seen better as equalizer but with this amp advantage is that with any EQ setting you always get a nice clean sound.
- Pity indeed that the overdrive channel does not have its own EQ
because this channel I would tend to add more contrast to acute or clean channel I prefer to leave the acute 12h.
Anyway I quibble, nothing dramatic life is full of compromises friends.
And as I said, this amp is the "plug and play" type "single effective"

Too bad no direct output "Line Out" to the sound.


Sound Clean:
- It is "Oh my god!"
- It takes a real pleasure to play clean things with spring reverb.
- The crystal-rich harmonic subtle. Who really nice clean bass

Its Saturated:
- It is not honest either be as mythical as the clean suddenly not I put her best.
Can Tater blues, pop and hard rock.
The most vicious of you prefer to stick their distos and other pedals.

I play a Gibson Les Paul Trationnal 2010 Desert Burst.
And let me tell you that the combination is more successful.


How long have you use it?
- Found OCCAZ a month ago.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
- Yes, because for a long time my leisure weekends
it was test gear in the music shop.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Pros: Its a really Excellent Clean, Fender is often chosen for it.
The -: - Volume really difficult to be determined.
- Disto perfectible but hey it's still not so bad.
Compensating with your prowess on the guitar you will manage to forget this detail.
Or call in reinforcements a pedal that goes.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Are better, gets worse so I would say it will if you find OCCAZ like me.

With experience, you do again this choice?

I'm rather infidel with the amps.
If I had more choices of where I live, I have obtained for other more flexible amps
Usage. But having returned to live in Tahiti bein not much choice next gear.

This amp is in my opinion very good but could be improved side flexibility.
But I am glad I made the acquaintance of this amp and I have LOTS of fun
to play with.
