So, all-tube amp 100w, 4 power tubes (EL34 Retube in on mine because it's too 6L6 draft on this amp I think), 5 preamp tubes and two rectifier tubes!

Well, on the other knobs and connectors, just go a little lower!

The amp has an effects loop assignable per channel and a lot of small functions that are practical and well thought out!


I would use messy! Knobs reacting strangely, effects loop that starts a little too sound! Limits are too many opportunities, you know where to head!

And when we have grasped the different modes, one realizes that it's actually quite funny around easily (at least for me)!

In short, you really grind the amp quite a while before getting out something suitable!

The manual is nickel chrome!

I put six to not be too cow!


I thought it would suit my style of music but in fact: not at all!

A low volume, I felt like playing with a fryer and high-volume, seriously encroaching on my colleague bassist!

I play a Gibson SG and a Fender Stratocaster (with a Paf Pro acute) and bah it looks like I was playing almost all the time on the same guitar!

Well then, I personally find that the amp responds very poorly to the nuances of the game, it's either all or nothing, it's drool as it is not possible in the lead or agreements with large, yet I easily managed to take control and never make big extreme settings!

The cleans are insipid, lacking the crunch of attacks on the lead, the grain is clearly under-character (I never even once adrenaline rush with this amp), it is too low and if we begins to withdraw, all of a sudden there is nothing (thank you for the precision of the assay) and the whole amp fishing a serious lack of momentum and feeling in touch!

In short, it is only my opinion of course but it did not rain at all, besides it does not pierce into the mix (not counting either the sound engineers who are tearing their hair if I believe in the experience of some people)!

Vala, it's pretty bad because the amp was great well thought out in terms of its settings, functions and versatility, but all this at the expense of a more than average!

I have not been conquered at all!

Oh yes, the sound improves slightly if we bypass the effects loop, but only that bypass the tube that also drive the loop and the sound is cleaner but still lacks more fishing!

Well, there I too want to put 4 (bah yeah, it's still fairly versatile so I will not go down too if it is I who am going to go on the forums) so I'll put five to please everyone (the knowledge that given the price of the beast, I feel like it paste 2)!


Bah I do not like it at all actually! I passed the front because I was too tired on the side of my mid-high ENGL, I wanted to have good bass, but there I was disgusted with the big bass though vomit that lead to nothing!

I switched to a Marshall JCM900 SL-X (nothing to do with the dual reverb eh!) Is a single channel but a sound that pulls the carpet with a very good response to the attacks, etc ... Just add a volume pedal and it changes from a saturated to a clean and carefree it sounds! Plug'n'play what!

If it again, I would do it again maybe not (although I made a small gain by selling it as I had nabbed with us), that was my biggest disappointment this amp, as if I played on the gear to someone else or as if I had a big transistor with a relatively high volume drinking!
