The configuration could not be easier!

This gives a very good sound easily thanks to the different voices, the equalization and button ISF is doing its job!


This amp can suit any style of music, from blues to heavy metal nag!

This is the overdrive channel that stuck me the most because I do not expect a quality unparalleled in an amp of this price, for me it competes with amps that cost hundreds of dollars more! It is just huge! With the ISF can go from a sound American and British voices, one can only find happiness! Just watch the few videos you can find on youtube about this amp to get an idea, the sound is huge! The model ht club 40 combo is already very good, added to it a 4x12 cabinet and it is paradise!

Contrary to what you may read what is typed as big and its not clean, it is totally wrong for several reasons. Already, voices can have a clean shop may wish to cruncher or a clean modern remains neutral and "smooth". Add to that the EQ and tone knob more effective, what you find a good clean, and I would even say that suits you!

The reverb is not bad either, with the possibility of two types of reverb with a small button behind the amp!


I recently started using because I just acquired, but I tried combo model for months, it is my plan to buy long!

My tried tons of amps before, Marshall, Orange, Bugera, H & K, and frankly .. it is the only one who caught my attention in this price range, it is on that by 1000 or 2000 euros more, you can always find better!

What I like most is its versatility, this amp was with a huge range of possibilities, it is almost impossible to not find something (if you have a guitar that follows obviously). This is really the kind of sound that I've always wanted!

It is too early to say whether I will ever experience with this choice, but I bought it knowingly, it was not impulsive (as ever for that matter) so I think well before the buy. I'll let you know in a few months!
