Great entry into the Friedman sound
Bittedours, 28.03.2019
It?s a great sounding amp, but feels a bit cheap quality wise compared to the handwired Pink Taco or Mini Dirty Shirley.
Sound wise, the other 2 handwired 20 watters sound and feel better.

Four Out Of Five
Phlpp_Kldz, 08.03.2019
Der Runt klingt wie ein modifizierter Marshall. Er bietet völlig ausreichende Gainreserven für die meisten gröberen Musikrichtungen und bleibt trotz Zerre präzise und stramm. Der Cleanchannel klingt wirklich gut, die Absenz von EQ Regelung ist für mich allerdings ein Nachteil. Unterschiedliche Gitarren, Boxen und Räume verlangen manchmal nach kleinen Korrekturen. Pedals nimmt der Cleankanal ganz gut an. Im Overdrivechannel erschien es mir etwas schwieriger ein perfektes Zusammenspiel von Pedals und Amp umzusetzen. Das kann natürlich speziell an meinen Pedals liegen. Auch der FX Loop hat so seine Eigenheiten...
Der Regelbereich des Masters gleicht im unteren Bereich eher einem On-Off Switch. Das ist natürlich übertrieben gesagt und auch nur für diejenigen interessant, die sich für Zimmerlautstärke interessieren. Aber ein Amp mit 20 Watt und einem Silent Recording Feature (klingt übrigens "ok") scheint mir vom Konzept schon für Homestudio/Heimanwendung gedacht zu sein. Es ist allerdings schwierig (nicht unmöglich) den Amp auf Zimmerlautstärke zu kriegen und dann wohlklingend einzustellen. Ich habe Amps mit mehr Leistung die ich leichter leise spielen kann.
Versteht mich nicht falsch, außerhalb der Mietwohnung will ich es auch laut. Und das kann der Runt. Nach einem puren, kernigen Marshall-Type klingen kann er auch.

Runt 20 Head
dfunk, 28.01.2020
Format de la tête très pratique .
Extrêmement dynamique et impressionnant pour une puissance de 20 Watts .Je l'utilise en répétition avec mon groupe et je ne dépasse pas 2 aux volumes sous peine de couvrir mes camarades de jeu .
Le canal clean est très bon et utilisable avec toutes les pédales , le canal crunch à une palette très large mais s'utilise d'avantage avec du gain sinon je le trouve moins bon que l'utilisation du canal clair avec une bonne OD (Od One Vl Effects ) qui permet un son overdrive moins coloré que le canal crunch ! Je recommande cet ampli qui permettra beaucoup de type de son et de style c'est vraiment un couteau suisse pour guitariste et en plus la sortie recording avec simulateur de hp est d’excellente facture avec un rendu à l'enregistrement sans bruit en passant direct via la carte son très crédible ! c'est la cerise sur le gâteau !

Ampli polyvalent .
Jean Pierre Q., 30.05.2017
Ses deux canaux clean et overdrive permettent d'avoir à la fois un Fender et un Marshall sur une même tête .On peut aborder tous les styles de musique ,du jazz au country ,du blues au rock .Ses 20 watts suffisent pour jouer en groupe ou bien chez soi , même à bas volume il sonne Une prise direct out permet d'enregistrer sans l'utilisation de baffle .
Le prix n'est pas excessif compte tenue de la qualité de cet ampli .
J'en suis pleinement satisfait .
