The perfect bedroom amp

Titus B., 02.07.2014
Got this badass little 1 watter a couple of days ago and I have been enjoying every moment of playing it so far. It's the perfect bedroom amp, being only 1 watt it's possible to achieve that sweet sweet tube break up at pretty low volume levels. The distorsion sounds great, nice and thick. This little box can produce more distorsion than you will ever need, it can do everything from nice mellow crunch to super saturated metal distortion. Although if you are looking for an amp with a nice crystal clear clean channel this might not be the amp for you. The cleans this amp produces are decent but since it's only 1 watt it has very very little headroom, so getting those pristine clean sounds might be a bit of a challenge.

My biggest (it's actually quite small) gripe with this amp I guess would be the EQ. It has one knob to control the EQ, and I probably wouldn't even call it a EQ. Turning the knob clockwise will take the amp from a more british type tone and turn it into a more american style. It's possible to get some great sounds with this one knob but I wouldn't have said no to a three-band EQ.

Overall a great amp and I can't recommend it enough.

Crunch King! Clean quiet ...

OG-Flow, 14.09.2016
At first glance the HT1-R seemed to me to be the egg-laying wool milchau for me (home-daddler and recorder, guitar-felt 5. instrument): tube amp, MP3 / line-in, headphone and emulated out, and that for under 250 euro. One thing that was really important to me, however, remained questionable: Is the HT-1 clean loud enough? And no, it is definitv not, because even the manufacturer's clean as the attitude is, in my opinion, crooked. BUT: This sounds in all positions and attitudes so of officially, that this is me was. The HT1-R is for me an absolute sound monster in matters of crunch and particularly the light crunch, so in the setting range 12 to 14 clock on the Gainregler, I find phenomenal. And then he can get loud. The amp has an ISF control, which also allows interesting sound adjustments and refinements between "American" and "British". Whether this actually fender or Marshall properties simulates, is synonymous to me synonymous, but what is and the results sound good;) Also the integrated digital reverb sounds not bad, but I do not actually use. Visually, the part is a real eye-catcher: handy, light and impeccably processed.
So, if one with appropriate volume pure pur pur pur sounds, he can begin with the Amp nix. For all others, I highly recommend the amp, because: see above, 1st movement. Tested with Strat and Tele on a 12 box with Celestion Vintage 30.

Supplement 02/17: I have exchanged the original ECC82 for a 12AY7 tube from Electro Harmonix. So the amp is neat and has clean more headroom: sounds overall great!
