Bought from musicians Friend as a closeout...paid $250 US
This amp is the definition of heavey metal....so forget about any soft music unless it's an 80's power ballard...there's a hi and low input and the low input is not clean!!....Even set at a volume of 1 the distortion and harmonic response is incredible...I have never been happier with another amp in my 20+ years of playing.
Absolutely nothing...with the slight exception that reverb would be a nice addition
construction is like a bomb shelter...very rugged build inside and out...no frills toggle switchs and pots..it sid blow my mind that the rear output jacks have some plastic content (probably to isolate from the chasis ground) and sever have cracked...a simple $2 fix...not an issue.
Bottom line is that it sucks that they are no longer manufactured...I'm such a fanatic that I'll buy any available...and I have built exact replica's for a small cost...plus I have several mods that are pretty awesome....I can build anyone a 50 or 100 watt if interested.
Bought from a pawn shop $200. I got it because of Sovtek's great reputation and
the great deal.
This head is absolutely BRUTAL. It is all you need, just raw power. No FX loop, reverb
, channel switching, or anything like that; just a pure 100W all tube amp. It has a high
and low gain inputs with Presence, Mid, High, Low, Master, and Volume controls.
It has a 16ohm, 8ohm, 4ohm, and line out. Power is provided by 4 5881's and preamp
is 3 12AX7A's. Modifications are easy because of its point to point wiring and their
support is very knowledgeable and helpful. It is a killer head and a great value.
It is pretty damn heavy and it uses plastic switches. I have never broken any, but for
road gigging, I put in metal ones just in case.
Construction is very solid. All point to point wired. Could probably use metal switches
This is a great amp. It is just pure clean power. I love it and it is extremely reliable. It
has survived the wost road abuse. I do use a backup just because it is a tube amp
but for the 3 years I have owned it and gigged constantly. It eats my Marshall backup
for lunch. I have never had a problem. It may not be for everyone, but you have to
check it out at least. For the price there is almost no excuse not to have at least one.
SOUND sending live !!! Easy to use with a guitar and some effects between the guitar and the Mig 100, it sounds like this is not possible! an alarming signal to noise ratio, I tried the Marshall and I preferred the sound of the Mig 100 for its responsiveness, its equalization!
Excellent for everything so it's clean !!!! Taking a slap whether clean or saturated ... besides we can play with the pots of the guitar to send the saturation is good ... otherwise you can also use a pre-amp saturation , it works superbly! I actually tried multiple with this amp and never disappointed !!!
For 20 years I have! Never failed !!!
Equalization is accurate, the power is amazing !!!
If I have one caveat to this amp ... its weight but good considering the sound I forgive him!

All Tube Amplifier: 4 * 5881 3 12AX7
Power 100 Watts: Sufis in all contexts, I've never pushed more than half of the master and the dj is much too strong.
2 between low and high, no effects loop.
Setup could not be more simple.
The configuration could not be simpler because you only have to connect to. sound.
May be missing an effects loop.
It's a straight head trs that restores the sound sent to it with great clarity.
Personally, uses it to rock, metal and jazz and is comfortable in all styles, only peripherals guitar and the guitarist will be the difference.
She, however, more comfortable in the rock record because a one pluttmdium Tone.
I use it with a couple JMP1 modified and Gx 700 for effects and it works great. JMP1 associated with it works well and can rev to have good saturation and monstrous Dfine.
Power is phnomnale and I always have to stoop over the BPS in another guitarist who plays Marshall.
I Retube Svetlalna with 6L6 and it works even better and the sound has a wonderful grain.
the natural distortion of the amplifier is interresting and can work for rock nerv but you have to play strong
In conclusion it is just a head lamp which is an excellent base dpart To create its sound.
It is difficult enough even in her characters because of his roots (single canal, no, no reverb effect).
I bought about 10 years ago, new for 3000 francs.
The report price is unbeatable quality to a head lamps.
I would do without this choice hsiter but is no longer manufactured.
