Two 12AX7 and two 6L6. Simple, good, sturdy. 15W, no effects, only a very effective EQ, one single channel. One Gain and one Master control, plus a power attenuator.

USE

No need for a user's manual. It's easy to use and sounds fine right away. The 3-band EQ gives you infinite possibilities, I'm still discovering some of them after two years of use. Good point: The mids control that acts as a boost and the attenuator on the rear of the amp, which allows you to reduce the power to 2 watts.

SOUND

You can pay anything with it (except thrash metal, but it's not meant for that anyway).
I play this amp with some Strats or Gibson Les Pauls. Whatever you do, it sounds fine.

OVERALL OPINION

Two years now and I still don't plan to get rid of it. I have played a lot of good amps, but this small amp blows away anything else with a comparable output power.
Only 500 copies were made (it must have been pretty expensive back then).
Unmatched value for money. I'm a fan.
