UTILIZATION

very simple
not need manual if you have already worked on tube amps + master / volume
clean tones, crunch and drive are at the appointment and quality

boosters are very effective in live situations, in addition to the dbs are well calculated to move the rhythmic solo

SOUNDS

the amp sounds accommodates the pop rock 60's 70's
blues / jazz going very well of course

for the rest (saturated fat) faaut he put a foot

sounds are not clear crystalline fender, but evokes
sounds evoke drive to marshall by mediums

ultimately this is an amp that has its own identity with the versatility

the 30w is sufficient for a lot of situations and provides the master sounds terrible to "low" volume, or there must be some great fender without extensive master

the reverb is not too good up to 4-5 this, we have seen better
ultimately the amp sounds so good that the reverb is not essential
The same applies to the presence: it is used but it is not very effective

OVERALL OPINION

6 months that I practice daily. a break was necessary because little used Paravant

I tried several including the Fender Deluxe, Hot Rod Deluxe, Blues Junior, Vox AC15, orange. as good and cheaper for the most in nine

chubster of the Cygnus has won hands down, which is not surprising given that nine it is about 1500 e ...

I do not regret this choice
this brand is not enough present in France along with many others too! damage

A typed channel Fender, Marshall typed the other, see other reviews for more details
The fact that the two channels have their own settings is very interesting
A master volume would have been general practice in order to keep the same balance whatever the noise level.
The HP is a Celestion Vintage 30.
Mine is blue ... this is not my favorite color ... I found the class more burgundy, but hey I had no choice!
The Tolex "faux leather" seems a bit fragile.
Reasonable weight which makes it even better.

UTILIZATION

Simple configure
There are good sound fairly easily and fairly quickly, despite the possibilities of the machine

UTILIZATION

Simple configure

SOUNDS

It sounds particularly good with my SG and also is doing a lot with the strato
Channel "Fender" approximates well the original but is missing may be a small vintage side I have with my Vibrochamp. With the gain in depth, it sounds a bit messy (but it's not made for it)
A little harder to compare the channel "Marshall" as it's been a long time since I have not owned this amp brand. But it sounds great, the drive is very clean, good quality.
It sounds good at low volumes. Well obviously, you still have to push it a bit for it to take its full extent ...
I tested it with my cab equipped with a Celestion Greenback: it is even better! When I have time, I permutes the 2 HP!
Amp very "enjoyable": you want to play it!

OVERALL OPINION

Used recently acquired, it suits me perfectly
It took me several hours to adopt but I am now completely convinced.
For a little over a year I have owned and tried different models (30 Classic, Hot Rod Deluxe, Deluxe VM, Orange Rocker Tube ... Edition), all had qualities but they also had defects in the sound or reliability.
The Chubster it's still the class above ...
There is a little expensive but the quality is paid for ... I hope it will last long!

OVERALL OPINION

If like me you still rev to have one in his Fender clean / crunch, and a Marshall sound with distortion that is this amp that you need.
The pros: The sound of dreams. It sounds like ON DISC, 4 sounds can be used directly by the footswitch (supplied) .2 separate channels. the notch on the Channel 2 mdium digging the sounds on positions 2 & 4 of your strato.
The -: the master volume for channel 1 trs sensible rgler who spends not much to rev high too fast.
With this amp you have a Marshall on channel 1, and a Fender canal 2.C is your Les Paul & Strato your going to be happy.
Tip: Do as I replace the HP original (clestion) with a celestion vintage 30 dcuplerez you the performance of the beast.

for the connection:
- 2 inputs (high and low)
- 1 HP 8-16 ohm output (the loudspeaker is connected to this output to an external speaker, it will happen so it will take the HP internal dconnecter)
- Owner 'a decision (like twelve o'clock pin 7) for the 3 footswitch functions provided (channel select, boost channel 1, channel 2 boost)
- 1 SERIES FFECT loop (preamp out, power amp in)
- 1 output "recording" (not tested yet)

construction:
- The construction of the housing is provided in multiple Saddle
- All is covered with a burgundy vinyl Tolex and a grid of flexible HP color "blonde"
- Cornire mtal
- The rear (open in back) is very well being protected (HP lamp)
- All connectors and knobs are recessed (if you plug your scratched with a jack sews no risk of messing up the front or rear connections when switching the amp)
- The finish is super classy, ​​everything is hand assembled, California, firm & patiently. You can see and feel. Nothing moves, nothing Exceeds is class!

CHARACTERISTICS for all these, I put 9 / 10
(I probably put 10 if one switch per channel was allowed to affect or not the loop FFECT)

UTILIZATION

This amp are relatively simple (it is a receiver at the same time, not a simile with multiple menus, etc ...) -> Some knobs, turn and listen when we like to, we play

Srieuseument, use is simple, however, the functions are large (boost per channel, notch and bright on the clean channel) ... The EQUAL really ffective, so there is plenty of sonic possibilities with the machine. Take your time and read the manual to know what each function and on its rle.

The manual (English only) trs is clear. He Submitted functions of the amp, some examples of "sounds" typical and classic trooble shooting (the 4 / 5 are example of his inspiration and useful trs CRER our own sounds)

SOUNDS

The sounds:
Describes as in point 1) CHARACTERISTICS, this amp has really indpendants both channels (gain, 3-band master EQUAL per channel).

The channel 2 is oriented "tweed" (or fender). There are sounds from clean to clean up the overdrive. Sublime with single coil. Velvety or rough with humbucker. In short, all the sounds clean / crunch / overdrive jazz / blues / rock here.
In this channel, there are really two voicings (with the current off bright and notch it and the vintage is bright and notch off) Obviously these voicings to apply cleans like to crunch.

The channel 1 is when he overdrive and distortion East Fawn "British" (or Marshall). Less rglages on this channel (not bright and the other notch) but all the same a pannel of impressive drives. Remember, the equa really work (active), so their action is really audible. In digging the mdium we reached enough distortion mtal with humbucker, harmonics abound (which are not extreme distortion, but it's even good couillu) course by lowering the drive and flattening the qual, there are sounds of ACDC and other overdrives 70'es.

Brief happy for me who was looking exactly these two sounds in a same amp.
- A clean-crunch rpondant marvel at the sound of mdiators.
- A distortion trs british marshall fawn.

The reverb is nice when it trs. Very long (and no "blop" attacks on down)
A knob of "prsence" global (on the power amp) allows a final refining the sound.
Is complete, the sound quality is. Anything.

A word about "boost" by channel.
The boost in the clean channel increases the volume while providing the crunch.
The boost the drive channel increases above the gain, not so much the volume.
Both are useful trs. The fact that they provide switchable four sounds at the base.

OVERALL OPINION

That's all rcent. I have since about 1 week.
I had the opportunity to test it with single coil and humbucker guitars. In seeking this amp, I had the opportunity to test another amp lamps (Engl, Fender Hotrod, Peavey Classic, Hashdown ...) No one convinced me. When the sounds taient l CHARACTERISTICS pchaient (clean and crunch or distortion and clean, but rarely the possibility of a crunch and distortion) or when only one Equal, etc ... etc ...

In short, for now I am conquered. It's an investment, but it really comes in the CATEGORY of high-end amp (its quality, construction, finish).
J'espre service that will make me as long as my old amp is say 10 years (I had a marshall 8040)

I wait a few weeks / months to notice complter (high-volume test, test out recording, test with more guitars)
for the moment 9 / 10
- Edition 2005 01 04 -

I have been with my jou Epiphone Les Paul (in custo Duncan SH-4 / SH-2) and my Start over US (custo
SSH, Lace Sensor Gold / Gold Lace Sensor / DiMarzio ToneZone) and volumes lev (never much more than 3 / 4 in master even when not necessary). The amp sounds, I remain of the view above.

At high volumes (3 / 4 of the Masters), the bass is more muddy. It's probably the same design of the amp (combo 1x12 "open back). Too bad I did not hook up the possibility of a closed back cab with 2x12" or 4x12 ". .. should be a interresting

Recording output: standard output rcording without SETTING THE level, nor any simulator. So it is convenient to register without a microphone -> but impractical to an amp simulator (like iZotope Trash) in the ass if the track is unusable. It makes service, but not to play live on a sound system for example ... or he must love the sound nasal

Note, I invested in a custom flight for my little combo ador.
In the case of DMAG or transport, it is warm, and no risk of shocks on the amp. On an amp of this class (and this price) began be relevant.
