Madamp J5 mk1Published on 04/03/07 at 10:03
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Amplification Type: All Tube, 2 x 12AX7 and 1x EL84 (Class A)
Power output: 5W, it sounds ridiculous, but it sends severe.
Connections: 1 guitar input (Hi), a speaker output (I added an entry Lo and a series effects loop).
Settings: Volume, Gain (for the OD mode, and it works with cascading Volume), Bass, Middle, Treble, Master, and the Fat switch, OD and Harsh (me I added a switch Triode / Pentode). There's no effect, but at the same time, it's not his job.

UTILIZATION

Configuration: super simple, you light, heat, wake up and cheeks.
Sons: seen any design lamps, and two modes of operation (clean and OD, but the same channel), it sounds right away.

UTILIZATION

Configuration: super simple, you light, heat, wake up and cheeks.
Sons: seen any design lamps, and two modes of operation (clean and OD, but the same channel), it sounds right away.
Manual: for use, there's no need to book. You just have to test controls. The manual (in English or German) would rather the assembly instructions.

SOUNDS

Style: It's still typed rock / jazz. No wonder, it's just a lamp.
Guitar: I played with a Gibson Explorer.
Types of sound. The main color is very "British". At the Vox or Hiwatt. Less than Marshall. The clean sounds are very good for jazz. The saturated wishes to drool, especially as we begin to saturate the EL84. The only downside is the color given by the mode harsh / smooth, which gives one a very good saturation very old school, the other less well add the "bees". But this way is very good clean sounds, and also saturated, but when the works in triode EL84 (modif home), so certainly no changes at this level, though ...
And then plugged into a 4 x 12 "instead of 1 x 10" combo, the hive disappears ...

OVERALL OPINION

I "finished" there is no lontemps. 5W in an apartment, it's cause, and there's way to quarrel with the neighbors. As said, the unfortunate 5 Watts under the hood know the spittoon into a battery, and battery, even aggressive does not necessarily cause stronger than the mini 5W pokey thing.
It has a very good momentum, and it is accurate. It lacks a bit of brilliance, but it manages by changing the value of one or two condos.

I like its versatility, and is an excellent working basis for the customization. I will change the condos, to put the Orange Drop (it was delivered with Mallory). After assembly it will be different triodes to be altered, and then ...

This is the first amp kit that I go, and I do it again this choice without pb. Good value.
You just know that we must put it in a "box".

I mounted in the frame of a bass combo "cheap" has been slightly modified. The bowl is the Celestion G10 Vintage (10 ", 60W, 8 ohms). Config type" stack "(head + cabinet closed), but built into a combo.

If you are just tinkerers, still with a good knowledge of electronics (see a pattern, do the wiring, to welding, and especially "attention are a lot of volts in there, so watch where you put your fingers, otherwise You burn out "), go ahead, it's a good kit.
If you do not know, you know may be someone who knows.
Count from 30 to 50 hours, depending on the speed of execution, with the making of a frame.
Note that there (for a little more expensive) version with an aluminum chassis pre-drilled and cut.

The final price will depend on what you want as a finish (frame, mess, Tolex, corners, handle, grid, ...)
