outstanding!

Maurix, 24.05.2016
Wow... and wow again! It took me time to get to know this Russian manufacturer but wow.

What an outstanding pedal.

I've never owned or played a mesa rectifier but this pedal is just marvelous; and I believe it will be the closest one will get to that mesa sound in a stompbox.

First plus was rehearsing... no more back pain taking my combo up and down the stairs, etc... I just plugged it to the mixer via the cab. simulation output and it gave a pretty decent sound...don't need to take my combo any longer... hooray!!!! Amazing pedal for a light displacement to practice.

I think all the outputs sound very amp like.

Tried it with my marshall 100w combo at home; The drive out gives a more aggressive sound compared with the other outputs IMO, but still completely usable. The preamp was awful and I was so disappointed... but my bad, I hadn't connected it properly; It gave me a bit of a hard time as it didn't work as my flanger does in the fx loop... beats me, but I ended up figuring out the trick to make it sound properly in the fx loop :) And guess what? It is now my favorite output.

I recorded a demo song to test it and with my setup the preamp is just amazing and my fav. mic'ed my combo with a sm57 and it sounds incredible; even the drive out is very good for a more aggressive sound. The cab sim is also very good be it through a mixer or directly to the software program - great for in a rush demo composition, practicing, practicing at home with headphones, etc.)


I've also tried it with a 12 v. power adapter and it does give the pedal a bit more strength and attack.

pros

- all of the above

- 3 different outputs that can be used at the same time! (as distortion, as a preamp, as a cabinet simulation)

-size!

-price (compared with other pedals that emulate mesa sound in a box)

-it has a clean fender type emulation on the preamp and cab sim.


cons

-plastic jack inputs


Can't wait to try it on this Friday's gig!!!!!!!!

I wasn't going to order more stuff because I'm pretty much broke, but did my research and had to have and try out this pedal!!!!!!!!!

If you have doubts about this pedal (or other from amt's LA2 series, I presume) don't, just get it, worth every penny.

Stunning pedal!

Paul8331, 24.03.2014
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!
