Great fun but only at great volumes

Bob Corey, 15.05.2018
So this is supposed to be an amp for home use, I?ll tell you this, I could be heard over a couple of rock drummers being the only guitar in the rehearsal room. It was at it?s limit but yes, this thing is loud!

So here is how this works, the volume knob is something like a gain or ?freedom? knob.
- when I say gain knob, from zero to half way, you get a volume change, but from half power to full power you are not getting more volume but more gain and more saturated super-fun tones
- when I say freedom knob... as much as you lower the volume, the less your tone breaths, like it is being chocked and less controlled so you always feel the need to crank more.
At full volume, the distortion is very natural and pleasant although is a little dull and doesn?t cut through for rock, but for playing alone or play bluesy and jazzy stuff, is for sure trully satisfying making EVERYTHING you play be heard, for rockers the pickslides are superclear too! It is one of the most responsive amplifiers I have played.
You can also use pedals, for tubescreamer style boosting or reverbs, choruses, flangers, delays etc. if the volume and gain is half or lower.

So for the apartment is not the best choice , especially if you are a modern style player used to modern amplifiers, or you get the distortion straight out of the amp. The neighbours or parents will drop you on the street!
If you play clean or use pedals for distortion you can pretty much play at home but forget all about that cranked and pushed powertube stuff.
It has also a noticeable amount of humming noise which may annoy the ones who are used to more expensive lunchbox amps.

For the quality, I?d put 1 star because it came to me with a factory problem, but instead I put 2 because Thomann customer service is very good and they accepted it back offering me choices of refund or replacement which is very importand when buying online! I believe this was an unfortunate thing though, otherwise I?d put 5 because it feels very well built in your hands.

In conclusion this is a super-fun machine and very good looking (in my opinion) nice to see it sitting on the top of your cab!
If you are a true rock player that you love the fuzziness and the beautiful uglyness of the cranked tubes, plus have the possibility to crank it, get it! But if you want a controlled modern distortion this is not your cup of tea. For those who will play it low, it will be an okay melodic amplifier.

I hope this helps, thank you!

If you want an AC tone in a small and cheap factor, this is it

xtech, 14.03.2018
This amp is small and very simple: tone, gain and two switches (thin/mellow) and (top bost/normal). It delivers 5 watts of EL84 tube power. Soundwise, it definitely has an Vox AC character, but of course is not 100% the same: has definitely less gain than an AC30. But it sounds very good on its own: the sound is very cristal clear, amazing cleans (not that "jangly" sound you hear in the U2 "where the streets have no name", but gets close) and interesting breakup, very smooth.

The problem is: the build quality is not that great inside. The outside is built like a tank, but inside i was surprised when i saw a carton sheet separating the PCB from the metallic base! And the problem is: the amp gets hot when you use it - i hope the carton sheet doesn't burn!
