Stunning pedal!

I was fortunate enough to have an early 2 channel Mesa Dual Rectifier Solo Head. I am still annoyed that I sold it, but I don't miss the weight of it!

I have been trying to recreate that legendary sound via pedals for 10 years. I've tried so many pedals, from cheap ones to very expensive ones and nothing has worked.

The AMT R-2 was recommended to me by a friend. I wasn't aware of the AMT brand and so I found video demonstrations on the internet which sounded very good indeed, even with the usual internet compression issues.

The R-2 was very high on features with the 3 outputs and a full EQ system and even a built in clean sound for use with a power amp or PA system.

So I bought one. I have tried it using the direct out into the front of a guitar amp (a Suhr Badger 30 and EVH 5150iii 50W) and it sounded amazing. Huge crushing gain with a very reactive EQ system.

I also tried it using the preamp out - into the FX return on the amps. It was just as good and allowed access to the inbuilt clean sound - a very nice Fender type clean.

The pedal is simply fantastic, it sounds like a Revision G model Dual Rectifier, the best of the bunch.

If there was anything I would like to improve on it - the jacks are plastic and may not survive a lot of gigging. I'd like to see that upgraded. The footswitch is an old mechanical type rather than the newer soft switch relay controlled pedals that are starting to appear on newer (and more expensive) pedals.

Overall though - I'd say it was the best £100 I have spent for years. I'm so impressed I've also bought a P-2 and I expect to buy more of the others as well.

A very good product indeed!
