Tube amp: 5 amp lighting to: gain, EQ, reverb, and phase driver, puisances tube: 2xEL34
50 W (at bottom it breaks not bad ears) that power is interesting because on stage, we can push the master volume and to saturate the power tubes that deliver harmonics worthy of the legend of Marshal
2 channels: clean and boost

Front: 1 input jack. clean channel: gain, treble, bass (not mid). boost channel: gain, volume, treble, mid, bass. Section master: reverb, master volume. Power and Standby button.
not switch between channels, it is controlled by the footswitch. if it is not connected, you are automatically on the channel boost

behind: Input power supply cord europa, fuses, coach of supply voltage, 120, 220 or 240 volts, coach impedance 4, 8 or 16 ohm output jack DI or slave with volume knob (a sort of preamp out) , effects send and return jacks in, footswitch input jack


Few buttons, but many posibilities of settings.
Indeed, the clean channel sounds clean up to 5, and then crunch. Obviously, it depends on the lamp preamp you choose. Currently, I am with a Sovtek 12AX7LP. with the gain at 10, you are the AC / DC! c squarely on the drive, and lamp, Marshall JCM 800 Series ... Notice to connoisseurs.

boost for the channel, c even more varied. basically not good for the crunch, good for the drive, the gain is gradual, as lamps preamp, the gain may vary (I've tried various combinations of 12AX7 and ECC83, just by changing the lamp of tone controls, with the same lamp preamp, the gain varies ... it is a science which I do not know when we finished the tour undo)
It is ideal for all that is rock hard rock boogie blues, high frequency media, but can also sound "heavy" because many mediums may widen and will boost the bass. as I use it with a 4x12 cabinet "in the same series (celestion GT12-65), mama mia ouch ouch ouch!

must spend time on it to find his account


As a fan of Hendrix, I sometimes lose control of myself and fiddle with the whammy bar while turning around the feedback, before finishing by rubbing the handle of the Gita on the edge of the cabinet ...
basically, it's exhilarating c ....
Fender Start reissue 57 japan lag and the beast first generation: it sounds!

Obviously this is a rock amp, no clear comparable to fender, it is not suitable for reggae, jazz, funk, etc ...

spring reverb, very colorful, j'adooooore ....

the grain is one of the best marshall ...!!! simply, there are still better than this, but this family


I deliberately chose a combo of 50 W lamps, easy to carry (this is already quite heavy, these transformer), which can push the power for the sound of harmonics, and to which I add an external speaker as uses (stage / rehearsal).
the list of amps I've tried is long enough, I did not even launch in ... if there was a license amplificologie guitar, I sign on!

I have 5 years, I bought it secondhand € 450, then I did it by audio Retube maintenance in Lyon this year.
Today, I orient myself towards more flexibility in Monchoix d ematériel
