Guitar amp combo lamps 4W Class A (pramplification 12AX7, EL84 power). HP 8 "custom Celestion VX8.

Between a Hi-Z instrument, an area between IEC and output in HP 16 Ohms.

A power selector (1/10W, 1W, 4W), a volume and a potentiomtre of Tone. Switch stop / start with a tmoin ct red light.


No effect, use is very simple and intuitive: you plug the guitar into the amp, it amne sector amplifier, the amp is switched on, a full minute the time the lights heat a little, and we play.

Use in flat: attention to the neighbors if the slecteur is about 1W or 4W. On 1/10W, we come to saturate the pramplificateur lamp, which gives the grain Vox, with many acute and bold time. Dfine is good, it makes good use of the combo without too Drang. The Tone of CONTRL is ractif he did what he asked. But it is the guitar that everything goes REALLY (at rglage game and microphones), and that's all the intrt of this amp. Its really a clear day you can go to 1W and the volume low. In any case, this slecteur power is really useful.

Studio use: the one can grow up to 4W, which keeps some clarity without saturating directly. The HP trs directive (which may be an advantage *) closeback forces, so that as you are o from the amp, the sound will change significantly: you make a crouching rglage ct you get up to play, you will have lost the sense of bass. So attention is not own this amp, but all the combos and speaker whose rear is closed.

Rptition use: I have not tried but I guess that 4W, if your local is not too bright and your drummer is not a brute, a should do well. That said, we must try.

* The advantage is that with two microphones, one can have a multitude of its placement under diffrent them, so really get what you want in the style of music and mix DSIR . Ide: put a microphone just above the plastic grid on top of the amp, you RCup bass. Another microphone in the axis, the center of the DCAL lgrement HP, you shuffled one of two fates, you will get a rich and sumptuous.


I play rock, more or less violent.

By plugging the guitar directly into the amp, it remains all the same in his typical british Vox (which I love) but has limitations in the violence.

By adding various pedals (distos, overdrive, chorus / flanger ...), the amp completely changes behavior, and for the better. He collects a perfectly DS-1 grows back, I had fun connecting a MT-2 and surprising! It is discovering a new versatility of the amp.

In short, a perfect amplifier match my needs: Entran and registration.


I use it for one month ending for perfectly happy with my purchase. Trs good amp for rock, blues, jazz, possibly. Nu metal, even when not, but it does not matter since it is not music!

I only regret potentiomtre a gain that would have grate a little better prampli, but with the slecteur power, it's OK.

Referring to Valbee home Ibanez, whose name "Hi-gain" made me flee, with an HP 8 "is better than the 6.5" bass-reflex, which made it really Hi limit-Fi mini-string with the Loudness button. But I guess the public is not the same screws.

Another important point, there is no effects loop. It does not matter as it may, especially for the use that I have, but it is better to have quality effects (with bypass correct) if a change many things.
