Head amp Stereo 2x35W lamps while including:
-5 Lamps prampli (3x12AX7 & 2xECC82)
-8 Power tubes (8xEL84, or 4 per channel)

3 channels (clean, crunch and lead) with three channels EQUAL common bright and midboost switches, master volume for clean, crunch and lead, master volume gnral, rverbe springs.

At the rear output into 8 ohms and an output 16 ohm per channel Stereo effect loop, footswitch jack.

The very fact two rack units and 11 kilos PSE is very practical and ultra compact.

UTILIZATION

Config trs simple to use, the only difficulty comes from the knob "lead" that saturated mode (mode therefore lead) gre SERIES gain knob with "gain".
Otherwise the only weak point is the common qualisation, if teachers do not have the same channels as rglages utiliss.
For highlights see below, note the switch that lowers the gain level of 15dB. In this case we can play at home with the volume halfway without Dranger neighbors.

SOUNDS

Trs versatile head, and you realize that this drive is head of the Marshall, but Marshall's good.
The clean is round and hot enough, the crunch trs good if you push the gain a minimum.
The lead has hints of JCM800 but with more gain even more bite. It's grainy and gritty desire, the Marshall supercharged with a bit more bass and a more homogne.
Beware though, the highs are quite aggressive, they must be handled with precision.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this head alone or in power section for my studio preamp Mesa / Boogie.
The trs rsultats are also good.

Most:
Tte-trs versatile, big range of sounds
-Sons and Marshall trs trs good qualitbr /> Amp-lightweight and ultra compact, easily transportable
Gain-switch trs useful for home use
