Not many amps you cannot emulate with this

16.06.2016
I bought this amp based on reviews and rating I had seen across the the internet and I am very satisfied with the purchase. I use this at home but also wanted the 'larger' combo for gigging purposes, with hindsight (always a good thing) I might have got the single speaker version as it is quite heavy to lug around.

Having used various valve amps over the years I was interested to see how this fares in sound against what I was used to. In size this is pretty much one-to-one in dimensions with my Vox AC30 (albeit a little lighter). Even with this size and weight I do miss handles either side, rather than just one in the middle.

Sound wise, the pre-amp section covers a multitude of sins, from really nice clean through to shredding distortion.

The TVP button makes an effect which I can only describe like the old 'aural exciters' adding sub-harmonics and top harmonics to the sound, creating both a very warm bottom end and 'bell like' top end at very low volumes. I can honestly say I can get as near as damn it to my Vox AC30 crunch sound, but at a volume where the neighbours are not calling the police to complain. Also with the overdrive in the pre-amp settings and the appropriate valve selections, I can quite happily get a very nice classic Marshall sound (with the UK vs US ISF control). I have not used the speaker emulated line out so I cannot say how this sounds.

The effects section is simple, but allows me to plug-and-play quickly without thinking about which pedals to use. This along with the memory save function to recall any settings which you like, makes finding and storing a sound very quick. I have not yet used the USB functions and software to save and edit even more settings, but I am quite happy with the 12 memory settings selectable from the front panel, which are enough for me.

All in all, very happy with the amp and I am very satisfied that I can use it at a low volume to create a really nice sound without shaking the house (which it can also do) and having to use it as a second toaster warming the room (like the Vox). On the other hand, when needed it can quite happily compete in volume with a drum kit when gigging.

There are not many amps which this unit cannot sound like and at this price, I can't really fault it, so highly recommended.

Best modeling amp availiable

Geople, 10.06.2018
Amazing and very versatile amp for the money.One of the best modelling sounds you can get without using a PC with axefx or other amp sim programms.I play mostly modern metal and mainly use it for home use and band practice(altough its kinda heavy to carry around) because its versatility makes it sound good and full at low volume an an apartment while also being able to sound louder than a heavy metal drummer without much effort.Its weakest points are the lack of a fuzz and a loop function but it takes pedals really well so that can be compensated.If you dont want to buy a tube amp and need an affordable versatile amp that excels at high gains sounds the blackstar TVP series probably your best bet.
