Value For Money : Excellent
Type of amplification: lamps (pre: 3 x 12AX7, amp: 4 EL84.
HP: 12 inch Blue Marvel (its TRS warm, round, and collects a lot of power).
Power: 30W lamps
Effects loop (AIM might have a volume on the effects loop), exit HP supplmentaire, footswitch output.
Rglages for a basic amp, but only legalization for both channels (overdrive channel is in fact boost the channel clear. Prsence a boost button to overemphasize the top mediums. Reverb spring.

UTILIZATION

Ms. cow happen to use it (like all the amps in general;)
Prcise EQ, we obtain a quick and easy convincing her (well it's not the absolute precision of a mesa boogie, but still more than adequate)
The manual is clear, but hey, I never read to the end. Strength of the manual: they show examples of rglages (which are satisfactory).

SOUNDS

I should point out that I retube the amp (in orde: pre: Ruby 1x, 2x Sovtek / amp: Philippe Our 4x).
The sound is clear dlivr hot trs closer to a clear sound with a Fender HotRod dlivr deluxe. The channel saturated nice crunch, but I prfre attack with my Boss SD1 or my Ibanez Tk999.
I play a Cort X2 which I have a DiMarzio DP151 Mount in rack (I'm going to add a PAF Pro in neck). The sound is clear die for, a real killing.
Nothing wrong on this point l.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 months. I pass a configuration more muscle (power + 4x12 Hiwatt amp), but this configuration, despite the sound of thunder, silent can not carry.
What I like about this amp: size (super convenient transport), the trunk it (more than enough to play with a drummer and a whole group), its clear sound.
What I like least is the lack of volume on the effects loop (but I will rectify this;)), the absence of guard lights (it is on the new models).
Excellent qualitprix (330 euros opportunities). If c'tait again, I would take exactly the same.
