great value
eoinc, 05.05.2021
ok - there's no escaping the price here. this would be fantastic value at twice the price.
Pros:
its a great sounding, very versatile amp. the 1W setting is perfect for getting some crunch at home volumes. At full power its loud enough to gig with, although you may wish for more headroom.
very useable SPRING reverb.
Speaker gets a bad rep, but is actually fine once you break it in.
power tubes (surprisingly) were TAD (tube amp doctor).
3-band EQ with 'tone' master control is very nice .
Cosmetically very nicely finished.

Cons:
-cabinet is somewhat thin MDF - fine at the price point
-the cabinet is about as small as it physically could be - a factor of the 'big speaker/small cabinet' is a tendency for these amps to have tube rattle on first power tube (seems to be a common issue)- this is minor, but annoying, can be fixed by use of tube damper rings (a side note - Thomann were very responsive and helpful with this, so thanks).
- no name preamp tubes are only ok - I swapped in some tungsol - improved the sound significantly.

In summary - a 50euro investment on some new pre-amp tubes and tube vibration damper rings will put this from the great to the amazing

Poor quality but overall a good tube amp
SergeiT, 29.06.2021
The first feeling when you connect your guitar to it is a joy from the sound you hear. Then you notice a high level of noise and humming and cracking and start fighting with it.
The reason of the noise was in preamp tubes. Two out of three were defective. To Thomann credit they were replaced as a part of warranty.
Then i replaced the EL84 amp tubes without involving Thomann.
The humming became slightly less but still here. And the last point is the cracking, it is not constant, it appears from time to time even when a cord is not connected to the amp. It is very hard to catch and to launch the warranty.
Overall this amp has brought mixed feelings. It sound good but the quality is poor. Overall i would say that i gladly paied double price in order to avoid all this issues.

Might be the best amp I have owned
Twinkleboy, 23.10.2020
Love playing on this amp. Bought it for home jamming and recording, works great on both!

Pros:
* Great clean tube sound
* Can go from really quiet morning twinkles to MAKING THE APARTMENT SHAKE
* Love the design and vintage cover

Cons
* It is quite dark so I usually leave the Tone knob cranked
* Not a fan of the gain sounds in this amp so a channel switch with a Clean channel would be a nice edition
* The power cable is built in so if something happens to the cable, you might need to replace the entire amp

All in all its worth the money and great for home use!

Great
Peachy_007, 27.08.2020
It is my first tube amp, and so far im very impressed by sound of that beast.
Volume and Gain are separated, that provides an oportunity to get some kind of overdriven sound on relatively low volumes.
So far I like it very much. So if you are looking for tube amp, consider this one.

Nice small tube amp
robazet, 20.06.2020
Nice sounding amp
It can be used at low volumes at home with the 1 watt switch
Typical tube sounds , nice clean , good overdrive Reacts well on the dynamics off the guitar Effects loop . For the price also good to experiment with some V1 placed replacement tubes. Celestion speaker has a good range the amp is overall loud
No competition in the price range
