All-tube amp delivers 33 watts
The settings are: master volume, channel select, [level, gain], boost button, 3 band EQ (treble, mid, bass), presence button, knob reverb.

UTILIZATION

the amp configuration is very simple, no need for manual!
Against her by the ... plain there are too acute! It is difficult to get a round and warm sound. The "crunch" sound seems muffled him! but I managed to get something right with overdrive pedal Boss above (not mine unfortunately :/)

SOUNDS

It is suitable for a metal band to play a lead guitarist with a much rounder rhythm.
The are often slamming (a telecaster should have acute shouting on it) I get to have a good sound with a distortion......

SOUNDS

The are often slamming (a telecaster should have acute shouting on it) I get to have a good sound with a distortion pedal on (amp: 2 = treble, mid = 5, Bass = 4; pedal: High = 33 % mid = 50%, mid freq. = 50%, bass = 66%)
and I play it with a VGS equipped micro Seymour Duncan assets.

OVERALL OPINION

it will be two years that I use for lack of means to buy me another.
I buy for "pleasure" to a friend.
I like: look
I do not like: it leaves too acute
If it again I would reiterate that no amp!

Any guitar amp head lamp (3 lamps preamp 12AX7, 4 EL84 power tubes) with a total output of 33Watts.
An input, an effects loop, a footswitch input, 2 speaker outputs 8 ohms (no line-out, CD input and headphone jack). Footswitch not included.
2 channels: clean (1 volume) and overdrive / distortion (1 win, 1 level). Treble / Mid / Bass, Presence, Mid Boost and Reverb for the 2 channels.

7 because no line-out and no separate EQ.

UTILIZATION

It is a very easy to use amp (little buttons). This gives a good sound quickly right in the clear, much more slowly with distortion.
The manual is clear, but not really useful.

SOUNDS

Tested with an LTD EC-1000 Deluxe (2 humbuckers).

SOUNDS

Tested with an LTD EC-1000 Deluxe (2 humbuckers).

Clean channel:

Its a very easy to find, well rounded, dynamic, even more beautiful by switching the "presence", not slamming the Fender and clenching, although radical adjustments can help to approach it (not my thing) . I rediscover my guitar. The seller, and few believe that I harvested from here and there, talking about a clear sound very close to the AC-30 (a class A as well). I've never played on the Vox, but it really sounds like a lot. Boost the medium is quickly saturate the sound. The problem with this channel is clear to me the direction of the head sound: low / medium-low. To have a sound that does not bleed too much, I have to put the bass between 2 and 3, and treble to 6. Here's the lights finally. The cabinet also there for many. Tested on a 412 Randall, the sound was clearly better defined. But to hear the bass in a group, must be clearly lower knob. With an EQ in the loop and adding a little gain, we get a fucking clear sound, but crunch to death to 4-5! I even have to rework a lot of frequencies. The amp blows a little too, but it is quite manageable. In addition it is a breath that remains at a constant noise level regardless of the volume (this is the case all the time on a tube amp?).
By connecting a set Chorus subtly, the sounds are perfect. With a Big Muff is angry, powerful and full of body. With a Silver Dragon, the sound is a killer, but only for extreme metal. In Palm-Muting the speaker is driven to desperation, I never thought it could be that sound. Unfortunately for me it is much too sharp and aggressive. So I lowered the gain and the overall EQ of the pedal to shift. Basically I do not operate at all ...
The reverb type is "spring." A 1 is too many for me. A half is unusable. Three-quarter, we laugh. Even as reverb "rescue" is a bit dodgy. But few push its clean (below 2, big max), it can.

Overdrive channel:
So here's a little disappointment. The grain is beautiful, the sound is rough, there is a fair amount of gain (distortion still big at the end) but even in power-chord that is more limited level definition. To see if you really want a dirty distortion sound with a typed, but otherwise ...
Another problem, even with the two bass, the sound is super dull! (Again, the speaker does not help). And since the equalization is common to both channels, although impossible to address one without affecting the other.
I will try to use boost, but I think it will just spoil me the sound: /

9 for clear sound, 4 for distortion.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had quleques weeks. Tested in my room (I have not exceeded 1), and repeating. In both cases it provides with little tired. Big flat for distortion, even if I did not intend to use it anyway. I tried MG, AVT, Peavey ValveKing and Randall 50W, and for similar prices, does not compare.

To summarize:

Super-clear sound, which goes very well with all kinds of pedals. EQ honest but too low-geared. With an EQ in the loop is nickel.

Big-power (I have not exceeded 5 repeating with a lumberjack and a very large bass)

-Cheap (€ 299 in store), very correct weight, the non-detachable power supply (at least there's no slack in the plug after a few months), the look.

But:

-Plastic Buttons: /
A single-channel all-con would have been enough. It pisses me off to pay for a channel and a reverb saturated useless.
No line-out or headphone output.
