Great, but not for everyone!

Gerald aus G., 08.06.2016
In countless videos on YouTube you can admire this amp and its earthy sound. Especially the video with Phil X in the headquarter of Friedman, of course, makes a sound for kneeling down.
I was able to test the jewel extensively, so I dared to jump and ordered the part.
The amp has two channels that blend very well with only a small Feintuning. Great plus. Really quiet is the basic noise, but okay.
The Gainreserven are not exactly too rich for me in channel 2 and for the solo one probably would need a booster.
So far so good. I do not play anymore, or only very little live. After thirty years of rock music, my ears always make such peculiar noises after a loud session. Nevertheless, I teach guitar, and make recordings and videos. But the part is not more suitable than so many Dwargenamp for 1/10 of the price.
In the direct A / B comparison with a Jet City the amp could not convince me. Both amps were well developed in channel 2, the volume of the master had to stay however for consideration of the neighbors to <2>, which however already properly. Here I struck myself rather on the side of the smaller amp, which sounded a bit richer in this setup.
I recommend the Ebo Wagner test from Guitar & Bass. For me and my purpose this was certainly an excellent amp and went back.

Zhebo, 20.04.2016
With 50 watt output power the Small Box delivers at least double the pressure as Plexi, Herbert etc.! Volume of the 2nd channel at 9 o'clock already vibrates the floor massively.

Sound very "vertical" shaped. (Tension at the stop is concentrated, with the chord stop very clear and differentiated sound, but sustain in short, for solo an additional booster is needed to be able to sing it)

Gain shaped in the direction Plexi, but not so "brutal", more cultivated.
