UTILIZATION

Aesthetically and level gauge, idem Fender TWIN REVERB lighter (some will understand what I mean)
Getting started is easy, no need to book.
A power, a standby and no hum noise.
It is simple to get decent sound, no surprises it's still very close to its big brothers "Fendériens" but with more depth, a little more bold, worthy of an acute Bassman.Pour summarize, a HP 15-inch ...

SOUNDS

You'll understand this amp is dedicated to the Clear register / Blues / Jazz
Without much tweaking, connect to a Telecaster or a shovel made in china ... it gives Stone a 335, a little tremolo and want ... Creedence ...
The reverb is faithful to what kind of amplifier, ie deep tremolo is less accurate than a Twin but still intéréssant.le Brigth éfficace is, especially for a game Lighten two fingers on the neck position.
Note that also agrees well my "gas factory" of his pedalboard for the typical 70 Rock, metal j'n'ais not agree on that, but it gives the right corp riffs to Billy Gibbons.
For me it is a "babytwin" if I can categorize as such,
Which allows me to keep good relations with my neighbors.
He also knows a drummer sweat if you push the master ...

OVERALL OPINION

Anyway, I possess the baby for almost 10 years and nothing wrong, this is a faithful companion ... usually playing on Twin and Twin great follower of his "vintage", I find it much more intéréssant that many amps tubes more modern, honéreux and its garish or nazillard. All the guys who come tap a jam at home to play on with everything and anything, and leave with a smiley.
I bought this amp I've had 400 sized 250eu révision.j tubes and considers its value 500/600eu.
I would do this choice
