All Tube Amp: 2 12AX7 and 2 EL84 in pramp in amplification for an output of 20W
1 between an instrument and switch in between faade
1 line output, output to an external speaker and an FX send return the rear
Canal 'clean / crunch'> 1rglage volume to vary the crunch
channel 'distortion'> 1rglage gain for saturation and a master rglage to adjust the volume from the clean channel
EQ: common to both channels> TREB mid bass
Reverb: trs not convincing I must say

Last rglage: SETTING THE General for the power output> function to enjoy all the rglages, including the low-level not crunch Dranger neighbors


Given that prcde, and yes use is very simple


I play rock ind-pop rock and some blues with two guitars trs diffrent:

A-fender telecaster japan with microphones not terrible

> Clean channel and neck pickup position or intermdiaire, we get a blues sound, reggae / ska surprising: very hot, "comfortable" and just slamming into intermdiaire. The crunch is not bad if you push too much volume. Pass a certain level, the worst crunch is really too rough and not harmonic.

> Channel distortion: not bad for the Rhythmic with the gain in the middle, beyond has become a bit messy.
I prcise the micro needle is really my T trs crillard. So we go over the CATEGORY.

A Gibson-standard ltd edition 2004 with burstbuckers pro:
> Clear: same remark with the neck pickup and intermdiaire position: it is warm and well Dfine time. A good lil blues is welcome.
But the crunch of default remains the same, except with the gibson pickups, the crunch comes much tt (question-level output). Not easy to have a clear trs if not play it easy and if not lower the volume of the microphones.

> Saturation: Good is when even the best, especially in micro acute: the sounds are much better Defines
Its quite Tranchand a little but not too vintage.
For if you push too much against the gain, even as default prcedemment: a pure win without actually winning round or potato.


In conclusion:

the amp used only suitable use for clean sounds blues.
For distos, it will do in the not too brutal rhythmic rock> mtallo abstain.
In my opinion too many solos for prcis Defines precision and fans.
I use this amp for several years, I bought with my electric Premire scratches (on TV).
I think for beginners, it's a good dj amp, which made it clear what a the "lamp", which sounds not small (HP 12 ") and is not the forget, a good sound also makes me want to play.

After a few years of practice and with a scratched suprieur level, it is so much change for an amp that fear my gibson breathe: but what? J'rflchis ....

NB: closer to the opinion on the H & K tube 20 (a priori it is the same amp, with a design diffrent)
