Delivers as promised, with uncompromised quality.

Carnivore, 13.11.2017
Load boxes became a necessity nowadays, when we were left to our own devices by history with huge 1,000 watts tube amps that we love and our tiny recording spaces, usually crammed in the only spare m2 of our flat. Which one to choose? So many buzz and bull in the forums. OK, I selected the one that sounded the best on paper and I went for the AMT.

I?m impressed with everything about this box. Response, build quality, features, tolerances, everything is top notch (you will not believe the packing of this unit alone!). In addition, I did contact their customer support in Russia. They replied fast and to the point, which is not always the case for much larger manufacturers.

What I do like? First of all how it responds, second the cab simulator, third is uncompromising quality. THe fact that is passive, even when that somehow might compromise additional features (such as active EQ for the cab simulation) renders this box into a very practical tool. The badass looks are not unwelcomed either.

The attenuator section is nothing short of fantastic, even if compared to much more expensive alternatives. If that is what you?re after, I highly recommend this. Mixing dummy load attenuation with the recording feature renders excellent results as well, and lets you record with a more natural approach, hearing you own amp to yourself at human (not rockstar) levels. Fantastic.

What I do not like? Well, to start with do not be too hopeful about the sound. ALL load boxes that came with cab simulation sound somehow "normalized" to plug in to a recording console or sound card, removing booming and fizziness... but nothing like a speaker cab. This unit is very good at that, but no exception. However, as proven by much expensive boxes, everything IMHO cuts down to EQ, so I did get EXCELLENT results with the direct out (no simulation) and use impulse/response software or even the cab portion of Amplitube 4, no soft emulated amp.

At first, I missed a headphone out in this unit. As soon as I heard other units from competitors with that feature, I understood that such headphone out is generally a horrible sound reference that is almost good for nothing. So no missing going on anymore for me. I decided to substract one star on "features" for that, but I dismissed the idea cuz it would not be fair. Headphone outs on load boxes are crap. End of story.

In an nutshell, everything it promises is delivered. And delivered well. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

As a reference, I use this guitar with several amps (Marshall 900, Peavey 5150 II, Peavey 6505 mini, Orange Dark Terror, H&K Grandmeister 36, ENGL Gigmaster, Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (pre 500), Blackstar HT20, Mesa Transatlantic... yeah, I have way too much gear, but my wife already covered that topic at great lenght).

I strongly recommend this unit, best quality and effective delivery at a perfect price point.

Grim good loadbox!

24.07.2016
Did not understand how bad my old loadbox was föränn I tested this.

First impression was when it arrived. Packed in a wooden box, very professional and safe as just it. Really solid construction and it just oozes high quality!

Second impression was when I connected it and tried it for the first time. Lots of dynamics, the top and bottom that I was missing in my old arrived. Things happened when you turned on the amplifier, which it certainly did on my old.

I usually use load box combined with impulse files in the computer. Never liked them built-in speaker emulation engines. This allows however quite okay! Sure, I still prefer to use me out impulses, they sound better. But for demo's or when I just want to plug into the guitar and jam a bit for myself, I can do it quickly and easily without feeling that it sucks the life out amplifier or sound bad. It is more than approved.

Overall, I could not be happier. Scary good box!
