« One elegant amp »Publié le 08/01/11 à 18:35
This amp is the 35 watt versions of the Jet series from Two Rock. This is an expanded version of the 33 watt Jet amp head. This one has the same components and tone but a few more tweak able adjustments making it even more versatile. This amp has more pull push control that allow for more versatility and use. This amp is the exact same amp as the black version but just in a blonde tolex covering. You get the same great tone and features but just a sweet cosmetic upgrade.

Instead of using 6v6 power tubes like the Jet 22 amp from Two Rock, this one uses 6L6 powers tubes. With the 6L6 tubes you will get a full sound scaling from top to bottom of your tone. The 6L6's will allow for more headroom and a tighter bottom end of the tone. You will have less midrange and less distortion but a rounder more blossoming tone. It is all just a matter of taste when it comes to power tubes and some prefer ones to others and power tubes that fit their attack and playing style. These tubes make this amp a fuller more 3D type of tone.
The amps sound great with any guitar that you throw at it. If you play with a Fender Telecaster or a Fender Stratocatser or even a Gibson Les Paul, there is a simple control knob that is labeled contour and that will allow you to better compensate the changing of guitar without having to re-dial in the amps EQing section. This allows for better adjustments to pickups and body woods.
At new these amps come in right at around $3250. That is an ouch kind of price! There is no up charge for the blonde tolex covering. That is a pretty penny for this type of amp that really is a single channel amp. That is one problem I see with this builder. They are doing anything major or something that other amp builders can't do. They don't have special alien components that make their amps better to which they only have access too. They just charge way too high of prices for theirs amps. There are a lot of builders out there who are not as big a name as Two Rock that can build just a quality of amps but for far less prices than these guys. I don't recommend paying this price for this amp. Not worth it!
