Lamp, diode, a high gain amp with a 5-watt clear channel class A. Fun!
An 8 HP, enough to play at home, but a little lightweight to play again ...
A stand-by switch, 3-band active EQ and a headphone jack, effects loop, in short, a good range of equipment for this amp.

UTILIZATION

No need for manual, plug and tested! Settings permit to carve a good sound and the palette is rich, not much to say, it is effective.
Only downside, the channel saturated, being diodes delivers a sound level below the channel clear, but remind him this amp is for play home or studio, this is not penalizing!

SOUNDS

As stated above, the sound palette is rich, the sounds are very friendly and saturations ranging from sharp grain grainy perfect for metal.
Against by the HP is a bit light, we feel the limits of the machine by pushing a little too much volume. A pity.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for past two years, the sound is nice but the grain is not super vintage (at the same time it is not its purpose), it is well equipped and can cast a wide range of sounds.
A good buy for the apprentice metalheads who does not get angry with her parents!
