Very easy to use, see other posts


Excellent amp. I use it in rock / funk / Custom Start with a variation on David Glenn Van Zandt team of microphones: a marvel. I find the sounds of the old AC-30 (yeah, I'm not young ...), with a trs HP supplmentaire type Marshall 4x12, it rcupre more safe and above is less directional He buried a marshall no problem.
Warm clean sounds but take a bit of saturation After a few hours utililsation ...
Excellent crunch and good saturation 'lamp'.
Swith the 'boost' is INTERESTED low volume for more roundness on mdiums / low, loud volume, it's boiling, especially on the saturated channel.
I use the 2 channels plus a ProCo Rat for trs big sound (warning, not mtal ...)
Should not be used 'background' because loss of sound quality, good master volume is around 3.5 / 4.
Attention is not made for large venues, the sound 'falls' 10 meters.
The reverb is kind vintage and enjoyable (but I do not use it ... I use those in my multi effects).
I have long pos killer question: should I put my multi effects in the loop or before the amp (like pedals). I opt for the 2nd solution because I only use effects 'mods' (delay, echo, reverb, chorus ...) and I like to go through the prampli.


Excellent amp. I have been there in the store, I made dozens of concerts in venues of all types, it has always sonn. I had no problem (but I lugs around in flight case).
I tried it with the Peavey HP supplmentaire, has a nice body 2 not too bulky, but leaves add an HP, as well take a 4x12.
For small rooms (cafés, small rooms for 50 people FTEs) trs though he walks alone. For slightly larger rooms, an HP prvoir supplmentaire or better be back by the sound system ... For larger rooms or collection outdoor (yes, he can do ...) sono mandatory.
If I had to change the amp ... I Rasht the same. I tried the 50 watt amp and Fender equivalents (tweed + the last series), the 30 Watts the best, there's no photo. (Whatever that ... an old VOX AC-30 ... it's not bad, but less versatile).
