Pocket Amplifiers

Ced.Q, 23.11.2016
I use this amplifier virtually only on energetic music, from cool rock like Interpol to metal to the Nevermore or the Thrash of the 90'S.

- The settings ... well there is a single knob that acts as a general tone, not enough and too restrictive to my taste ... it will almost always be necessary to exploit the effect loop to obtain a convincing sound.

So, we find ourselves to walk with cables, pedals and power supply, the amp loses its side passes everywhere, and that is a shame!

The overall sounds are not bad, but especially to work at home, in group the lack of adjustments will make that we often come back to the amp to get a better sound without really found a better sound.

I played it on a HB 4X12 in V30 and a VHT fat bottom 2X12, and I never got a sound that really satisfies me, both on the channel crunch and lead.

I usually play on Engl Savage and EVH 5150 100 W, and there is no comparison with these amps, there is a huge gap between the piranha and more heads.

It is noteworthy that we get interesting results by going through a CAB roadster, one has a portable config, not too bulky and easy to transport, that is what made me buy this amp, 1Kg (. ...) and the sound of the 6505 (5150) in the pocket ... well almost ...

Pocket size hi-gain sound

Tobale, 11.09.2018
I bought this amp for my student apartment because it has a headphone jack (mandatory in my flat share), very compact and the price is really good.

The operation is very easy and the amp very well kept, ideal for beginners.

He has not got too many features, except for an FX loop and a headphone output, both works perfectly. However, it should be noted that the output of the headphone jack is quite high, I usually play with my DT880 (250 ohms) with the volume control to 3-4, because the headphones are otherwise painfully loud and operate at the performance limit. High impedance headphones are recommended.

Lead and crunch sounds are awesome for the money, nice aggressive and snappy. For clean sounds, I would recommend another amp, you can theoretically use it for it, but he feels really comfortable with a dose of gain. The amp rushes when idling, but that's the only thing that can be stopped by the sound.

The piranha makes a high-quality impression. It is made entirely of aluminum and very robust.

Conclusion: For little money you get a high-quality Hi-gain amp for your pocket. Despite the small size you get a decent Metal sound and due to the good operability of the Piranha should be interesting especially for beginners.
