The settings are very accessible and effective.
The construction is very solid
Few settings, clear sound is sumptuous. A sort of Fender Twin Reverb, very dynamic, fun to play. If one starts the Bright switch it radiates in his rehearsal space, or scene and found the sensations Zappa (Zoot Allures). The reverb is beautiful.
the popping sound is creamy, the regular grain, the attack is true to your fingers. Up to 8 gain gives a crunch of a rare quality (like Hiwatt years late 70 early 80). 8 to 10, is Van Halen's first album! But with the blast (too bad, my grade will suffer)
Warning! This amp is very "vintage" in concept. Unlike modern amps, it
has a basic sound (excellent) that meets the guitar and guitarist. There is not a huge sound palette, why buy an amp simulation ...
I have no manual, completely useless.
I love Hard Rock, jazz-rock, heavy, blues, funk, folk song, the metal and this amp it is not appropriate. For the rest ... Woof! It's amazing! Again, I think this amp is designed for guitarists "old school", the sound is first made by guitarist and guitar amp faithfully retransmits the intentions of games, the nuances. 6550 lamps still warm your games. I play Les Paul, Telecaster and Strato (the 3 of very good quality) and except for some old Fender, Matchless or the VHT, which are really more expensive, I've never found an equivalent quality.
I have a pregnant VHT, Mesa Boogie and Marshall UNAE old, all sound wonderful and there are actually differences. As a group we always hear your sound, your notes.
I use it for 10 years, maintained and pampered! It rings, it is simple, he respects my game
the default is the breath on the big saturations. I had lots of amps, racks, simulations etc. ... This is the amp at the best value for money that I know there are better ... but it is much more expensive and usually custom shop!
Others regret the lack of sound palette? This is not the purpose of this amp. But put your band in your room repeater, plug .... it sounds! Not need a compressor, distortion, chorus, or multi-purpose! (Just a switch to change channel and reverb) It takes 30 seconds to find the sound.
Now compare with most amps today ....
For the maintenance of lights I'll always at a true specialist, I, have never had to touch the button Hum scale.
