I think everything has already been said for this section. But I was pleasantly surprised to finish the outside, I did not open his head.


In absolute terms, we can say that the controls react logically, making it easier to grip with this material. I've never read the manual, and no users I know do not read.

Several failures before the final blowout two years of use. We never get a good sound.


Here is where I want to dwell for a moment. What's that fucking joke!?

Imagine a tube amp that sounds like a transistor amp. I exaggerate but can.

One finds, in the transitions that are typical of acute architecture any lamp. But the list of benefits ends LA! The overall sound is tight, with a trend a little messy, even very depending on the settings. The dynamic is ridiculous, this head huge commitment. The guitar sound is unpleasantly changed. The unpleasantly sharp scratching, the basses are slobbering.

Add to this a little natural distortion that has this side "aluminum box in tune" amplifiers cheap manufactured with the worst crap. Sprinkle the whole with a crunch and you'll get tortured ....

Tadaaaaa ... one of the WORST tube amps I've tried so far in this category.

Only thing that saves. The fate of the trail is clean with an acceptable result. Yes, it is even beautiful when it adds a little reverb.


Unfortunately, yes dear Audiofanzine. I tried a lot of amps, and it did not at all convinced. Add to this the problems of reliability and LETHAL EXPLOSION FINAL end of life and you understand that I can not recommend to do shit with crap like that.

You will be ruined or really desperate to play on this thing. Say, for beginning and have 100w lamps, it can be an argument. Similarly, if you want to connect to large distortions, it also quite calmly cash. But we're really in the worst of the worst in all lamps. I am tempted, after this test, the note back Hughes & Kettner Warp7 I dealt with very harshly at the time. It definitely sounds better than the ValveKing.

I STRONGLY recommend the purchase occasion, except if the seller guarantees the year.
Another detail that will surely interest you. Two other groups also had this head in our region. None has been able to have more than two years. In both cases, a major breakdown occurred in this period.
