Simple, unfussy, loud

Martin9392, 10.02.2018
We all go through the stage of thinking more controls = better sound, "more is better" and amp modelling with 47 amp types is better. Bad news - it's not.
If you play any type of electric guitar where you want the finest tone, this is the amp for you. Having 2 channels means effectively you can set one up for clean and one for drive, or rhythm and lead. There is no reverb no digital effects, no bright switch or presence. Just a 30 watt channel with volume treble middle and bass and an 18 watt channel with volume and tone.
Firstly it is a big amp with 2 x 12" speakers but despite it's size (about 30% bigger than my Hot Rod) it is no heavier. A Vox AC30 requires 2 people to lift it. The 18/30 is manageable by one person.
The sound is not very Fender like at all. The 30watt is much more like a cross between a bright chimey Vox AC30 and a Fender black face. Bright clean but with a hint of grit that increases nicely with an increase in volume. I mainly use Gretsches so I love the biting bright with warm undertones.
The second (18w) channel is more like a Marshall / Fender hybrid. Warm and fat filling in all the mid range tones that work so well with rock. And let me make this very clear. This amp is so LOUD that at full volume band rehearsals with a drummer I barely took it above 1 (on the 18w channel / 2 on the 30w).
1 on the dial is like 8 on a Behringer 100 watt modelling amp I used to own.
I can't imagine how this would sound on 10. It would require earplugs and preferably to be in a different time zone. If you need louder - you need to see an audiologist.

Mustang J., 20.01.2018
When the Bassbreaker series was first released, discovered that the entire series is great and this particular model, the 18/30 is brilliant!
Channel 1 i is the blackface sound. It is chimey and bell-like. The perfect Deluxe sound and channel 2 based on brownface deluxe has more crunch, great to crank it up. Minus points would be that is has no reverb, no attenuator like the 45 watt version and no effects loop. Also, i would prefer it if it had also a head option as the Bassbreaker 45 and 15. But it is totally worth the money!
