Quality, Versatility and Big US Sound

Napo, 26.02.2016
Alairex HALO Jr. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all I want to say that I have validated my choice to the sound examples which are quite representative of the qualities of this pedal of overdrive.

For the rest it is a classic overdrive, set by the knobs of Bass Boost and Control Contour which are of a formidable efficiency.

In addition the Shape selector "2 selectable distortion and not 3 as written in the doc!" Which transforms this classic overdrive "but of very good quality" into War Sound Machine .......

I want to clarify that I was looking for a BIG LEADER,
I found it greasy at the Selector Shape and the 2 small magic knobs.

I tested it powered in 9V on a BLACKSTAR HT5R head
Equipped with a Preamp amplifier Mesa Boogie 12AX7 which gives it a fat / fat overdrive !!!! With Celestion Vintage 30.

If you have like me and you are looking for a leader or even metal, this is a good choice to make without hesitation considering its price very well place!

PS: the serial number written below by hand is top quality !!

Musically

Something new

Markus542, 16.05.2017
Distortion, as is known as sand by the sea, this I had after a very positive online assessment for a very long time on the Merkliste and then just recently ordered it.

In the end, the halo remained and the device that I wanted to have, I sent back. Thanks to Thomann for the best return service.

The Halo has a pretty board in petto, but can also be gentler and is good with the volume Poti, which I always went out as a self-evident, but can not really any distortion.

The handling is intuitive for people who have ever had a distortion in their hands, and settings are quickly found.

The small toggle switch can be used to set two different tweezers, on the left it is more distorted and great for metal, on the right it is crunchy with a clear boost, so the side is also louder. For that, there are so many controllers here very little space, there is the one point deduction in the operation, is for me but to neglect.

Contour and bass controls also deserve praise as they can very effectively interfere with the sound, with very large reserves. The Contour takes care of the mids, from scooped to painful, and the bass control is great to keep the bass in the mix or solo the full frequency band.

The sound itself sounds like a good tube amp, and I've got a few, the amp behind it can be clean as well as torn, side sounds are pleasantly low depending on the setting and the footswitch works quite without clicking what I do Personally very much like.

From me full score.
