Schreihals at home

Scaevola63, 01.07.2017
The Jet City came as called, because I need for certain occasions (studio, lessons) a tubehead on room volume. What to say? The 2 watts also go at midnight, if the volume is not regulated more than 9 o'clock. Clean at this time, however, nothing is to be expected. The 5 watt option is sufficient even for small studios. Clean is in the 5 watt mode, well, until the approx. 11 clock setting, then, depending on the PU equipment, the crunch. For pretty Vince Gill - Countryzeugs quite nice. With a 2x12 Fender Vibro-King - Cabinet, the amp open-string runs perfectly harmoniously and chicken-picking as well as banjorolls sound nicely poisonous - there it is, the "snappy" tone - here makes the JetCity a really great figure.
For more violent stuff or singing fusion, I've also discovered it: in combination with, for example, Carl Martin Overdrives (DC Drive or PlexiTone) very nice wearing sounds come, depending on the gusto with the switchers "low-fat / mid-boost" , Or "bright" color; I have in the studio however both switches on "off". In short: the small is great for small events, can sound toxic and is worth every euro.

Wild!

ricoco, 19.02.2017
I specify that it is my first amp all lamp so I do not necessarily reference in the matter ...

I use this head with the cabinet 1x12 of the same brand in semi-open version, for use in the room, which allows me to scream the beast at a reasonable volume.

Do not look for clear sounds with this amp, it was not made for it seems ... in any case with the humbuckers of my Les Paul, at least we have a slight crunch.

For the rest it becomes interesting:
In "low fat" mode, it drools, it fuzze, the sound is wild to wish (but not necessarily good for all genres, it is not a distortion tightened type "metal")
I use more the mode "mid boost", for the crunchs supported or for the single notes, it sings perfectly!

Note that the low fat and mid boost positions bring a lot of gain. Too bad we can not switch to the foot!
In the neutral position, the sound is lighter, more precisely neutral, we better take advantage of the gain stroke (and it better respects the timbre of any pedals input).

I specify that I changed the original lamps for JJ and went to EL34 for the power stage. It brought warmth and finesse to the amp in a general way.

The switch "Bright" does not bring much on my amp (maybe it is defective ...)
The equalization is not very powerful but allows to model a little sound (especially bass that saturate and drool fast enough).

To conclude, I find that this amp has a character of its own, wild at will, you must know how to tame!
It is very pleasant to play and very simple.
After, the sound pleases or does not like, but frankly for the price ... I do not regret!
