Tube amp 1W to 40W. Connectivity: The series begins with the input jack for guitar, with just beside it a small push button that allows the choice between 0 dB and -6 dB: this will not saturate Lampl when playing with an instrument active. Followed, from left to right, six controls that we are already well known: gain, bass, middle, high, presence and master. He is also seventh potentiometer whose role is obvious, but is quite new: the continuous power control. This setting allows you to change continuously the output power, and this, from 1 to 40 watts in pentode mode. In this case, the first half of the race of the potentiometer, Lampl operates in Class A, while the second half, it runs in Class A / B. Remains to mention two switches, one for standby, and the other for putting on or off, plus a small LED that is related to the boost. This function is dailleurs controllable by a foot switch as an option. The rear is also quite simple, but it offers some surprises. This time we start the description by the right, just to keep the best for last! The first jack used to connect the switch off which I was talking. Then we see a loop effects processor series, which suits us perfectly as well, it is always possible to choose the best solution for connecting effects. Followed by three speaker jacks labels out, outputs for speakers so respectively in 4, 8 and 16 ohms. And here are the three cherries on the cake. The first, its a small push button that allows text Tube Fashion dinverser mode lamp operation between triode and pentode, triode mode developing approximately half the power of pentode mode. The second, right side, its a button similar, but wording bias (polarization), which allows dinverser both options, high and low. Low polarization mode, the lamps have a longer life, high polarization mode, the sound is better and power is slightly higher. The final cherry cest RJ45 connector (Service). If you dun have adapted software via this connector, you can control on a screen DorDîne technical data and parameters relating to the lamps.
Simple and clear, we plug you play you play one rule, but it sounds very much directly.
All dabort I used my 4x12 cabinet OUR composed of two and two V30 Classic Lead 80, with an Ibanez Artist AR350 (Les Paul with microphones and split ...). I find the clean and crunch beautiful, warm it with a big vintage tone. it sounds little wing of SRV pickups simple. One example obteint beautiful blues sounds to the John Mayer and Jonny Lang ... With humbuckers, more attack strength, and therefore more crunch, too, always very well defined. The boost function is very aprécierez on this single channel, it allows a pedal to increase the signal level of 10 dB in order to move from a clear to slightly crunchy sound or a crunchy sound with a slight distortion. There are always plenty of attack, the dynamics of the game is beautifully observed, the more you attack the strings and it saturates, it's nice to play from this point of view. I find the knobs quite interactive, knob gain does not react the same way depending on the level of master used, the manner mm, the tonal response of the amplifier changes according to the level of earnings. This provides a substantial number of settings available and therefore sounds from light to light distortion. The switch of - 6dB input is effective with active pickups in order not to overload the amp too quickly. I did the test with an Ibanez Artist with EMG 81 and 85 and it works very well. I also used a Delay Tech 21 (Boost DLA), the amp responds very well with and immediately the sound has a quite pleasant. The amp is not lacking in volume, even in setup or 0.5 w 1w. Difficult even to get a crunch sound at low volume (for home) so the master volume pot is sensitive early in the race, but it is doable and the sound is very well defined. I could not play for a long time to speak clearly pentode and triode mode (the difference is really noticeable at high volume (master half)) but in pentode (1W to 40W) the sound seems to breathe more . Both methods have their own tonal responses, which opens a few more possibilities.
In the end, I do not regret my purchase, I now have beautiful clean tones and bluesy at hand. In a light-headed (7 kg), very nice I think. You must see the lights with LEDs in it! A vintage modern amp sounds. In addition it looks very solid! In short, a first user quite happy.
