All Tube Amp, (13 exactly)
-100 Watt avoinent lot
-3 With separate amps for each equa. Two modes by 6 Channel amp so, 1a 1b, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b + fx if the cannal possesses an external rack.
Everything is controlled by the footswich so all seven buttons on the switch including the canal fx.
Possibility of different sounds-real time extensive.
Reverb-adjustable by a potentiometer at the back of the head. I do not put 10 because it is not controllable by the switch.


-The grip is quite fast but not super easy either, a small adjustment period is néséssaire notemment for adjusting the sound level between the different modes.
Otherwise when the beast is tamed in a few hours, there are ways to have fun, it's big sound!


Me I'm more into punk, rock, hard music that his mother and what I find the sound of the amp in general its pretty good but lack bcp heat. This is an amp sounds so German in Germany. It's pretty cold, on all channels, it lacks versatility, if you like the big metal, rock, neo has linkin park, the head Eccell in these areas, cons if you like blues, jazz , to forget. It lacks horribly versatility it may be the major flaw that I criticized the head. Well if not I said to the neo, punk etc is the atomic ball! The disto hard bcp bcp c big sound is clear. The crunch lacks a bit of personality. Light and sound a bit aggressive. But all I'm saying that strictly binds me what my impressions his characters.
I play it with a Start fitted with a Seymour Duncan Invader SH8 and a cort m600. I do not use external rack but I know that the use of an external rack with the amp is rather easy.
I takes only six because of his horrible lack of versatility, c a shame just to ca.


I use it for several months. It is but I like bcp qu'estetique the glass suggesting the inside of the beast. I love the distortion bcp.
In France the price is around 2600 euros. I'll sell it to buy a Dual Rectifier, which is in my opinion much more versatile.
If I do it again do it again or not I will take rather a dual but when I got paid the mk2 triamp the Dollard was not as low as now so the price of the dual was bcp bcp higher.
