Worth every penny!

Uwe839, 15.06.2018
In advance, just under 3,000 euros for an amp is already considerable, but if I had been willing to invest this sum earlier, I would have bought so many other amp not at all.
I once heard the amp live and was instantly in love with the thing!
After ordering it took just under a week to delivery. The amp had to be ordered by Thomann probably only. Packed absolutely safe, the valuable piece then arrived here and spread a paradisiacal smell of pine wood (pine) after unpacking.
Before I get to the "sound", the amp stands out due to its relatively light weight (24 kg). The case has a perfect size, the tweed material is very clean.
The attached manual is actually superfluous, because the amp has a very puristic design.
After preheating the tubes finally the first sound. This is perhaps to mention that I own several fender amps and already had. The twin is the highest quality of all who are with me or were.
It seems that the case size communicates perfectly with the 40 watts and the speakers. Immediately noticeable that I can adjust the volume control without problems to about 4, without my ears fly away. Who knows Fender amps, knows what I mean. My Blues De Ville 4/10 is so horny from 2.5 that I have never played over 3.
As input I choose the Normal 1 input.
Presence, treble and bass controls are once at 12 o'clock. From this position, I adjust the controls until I like the sound. The first test is done with a US Strat with Kloppmann 60th. PU's.
Unlike many other amps, the sound can be adjusted very finely over the pots. Easily changes are audible immediately. Clean, without pedal, the amp is nice and warm, but comes in 4-5 already in a wonderful, warm tube. For Blueser a dream.
Later I loop a TS 808 Tubescreamer between Gitte and Amp. Now the sun finally sets. Volume on the guitar a bit down, TS for the chrunchigen parts active, volume fully on and a great lead sound sounds from the amp.
Finally, the board connected. Whether with the Way Hughes Doubleland, or the Lightspeed, the amp sounds at its best. The sound always stays transparent, never gets muddy. The speakers sound punchy, clear and never unpleasantly scratchy or muddy even in the first hours.
In short, my dream amp! The remains in any case. Clear buy recommendation for guitarists looking for a pedal-friendly, purist amp for many styles. 5x5 stars!
