Good little amp 6V6!

5W All Tube Class A - 1x 12AX7 - 1x 6V6GT (brand Ruby)
Celestion Super 8 - 93dB return
A switch to start (no standby) - 1 tone - volume 1 - 2 inputs "high" and "low"
1 HP port 8 or 16 ohms
And that's it! For the price it is well to have a Ceslestion, it lacks a standby switch that could be useful, otherwise it is sufficient, and for a few dollars more is still more complete that a Fender Champ 600 or Epiphone Valve Junior.

At first all is seen a little cheap, the knobs "chicken head" white are very "plastic", there is some defect in the finish here and in my case, a damaged screw, a default installation of Tolex, nothing insurmountable, however, we must know what to expect. At...…

At first all is seen a little cheap, the knobs "chicken head" white are very "plastic", there is some defect in the finish here and in my case, a damaged screw, a default installation of Tolex, nothing insurmountable, however, we must know what to expect. At this price it is still correct, to the handle feels solid and is comfortable to handle and the front with its vintage look is not so bad here.

UTILIZATION

Very simple: you plug it leaves warm 30s, one volume, one tone, nothing to lose, there is a nice clean sound in 3s.
Only downside: the tone becomes very showy spent half.

SOUNDS

With a 6V6, his Fender should sound so, well yes, indeed, sounds cleans are very nice, simple microphone on this is beautiful, it's slamming, balanced. With a telecaster it smells good blues and country with a Strat and it's full of style awaits you!
When you push all the way (and there is little to do with using the small low-yield HP) its a very fender crunch also, with the crashing low, very 'Stonien "on a telecaster and a bluesy Strat.
With humbuckers, it's different, the sound is less balanced, always pleasant clean sound, a little less crunch.
The amp seems well accepted pedals (OD, Disto, Fuzz, modulation) after it is done either to play metal (although ...).
The input "low" can sound even weaker and slower cruncher.
Note that the HP 8-inch limit still the bass response (some would say that there is no bass at all!), As shown above the advantage is that it is fully exploitable home, for recording and poussable thoroughly. However not as playable with a drummer.
Plugged into a 12 'Celestion Greenback (may not be the best amp for a typed U.S.) certainly is gained in loudness, but I think we lost the next "Fenderien" in crunch, surely the answer to the HP to do so.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good little amp for the price of a stomp box "store."
Well accept the pedals.
Rather for those who play on simple microphones and looking for a good clean sound on which they will add the pedals (OD / Disto / Fuzz)
Sound power is perfect for playing in or to register, but as it is unusable with drummer.

SOUNDS

I was looking for an amp portable work lights with an HP 8 'with a clear base and I found APRS moult research, this Laney. I hesitating with the Fender Champion 600, but his HP is 6.5 '. The sound is beautiful, clear, dynamic, close to Fender, and we must turn the volume to saturate. So pedal to predict. Powerful enough to play with a drummer, but it must pass through the sound system or bring it to shoulder height close from home (that's what I do in BPS in the hanging by the handle a microphone stand). Sounds good too with 1 HP 12 ', there is more depth, breadth. The instrument is well respected and he digr the special effects. .

OVERALL OPINION
