A very cool piece of kit :) ... I am a 'Pro "Blues Harp Player'..
GOFA, 05.11.2020
Man !!! this little HB Mighty 5watt Tube amp & playing through a Harley Benton G112 Vintage ..... hooked up to a 'Jet City - Jettenuator' ... & into a 'P.A. system..... to an audience of 350 people, !!!!! - pre-Lockdown :(
What a Killer sound !!!
No effects needed ! None ! :) (& I have them all ) ... I have been playing my harps on stage over 35 yrs & making a living from them , so sound quality is always 'A must' , to facilitate further employment .......
Pros .... Everything about this 'Little set up' is 'Sooo Cool , Distinctively Authentic & Vintage ' Sounding ..... .. At a budget price !! & All I can say - it's a seriously good bargain ..
Cons.... No line out , for P.A. .... but it is a 'tube amp' .after all .. to be expected .... "No cons, in reality" :)
You'd need to mic up the 'Speaker'..... I personally use the 'Jettenuator' .. & also put a mic in front of speaker , as a 2nd source ; for 'use on more 'Heavy Sounding songs' ... :O
I have owned very expensive amps , for my 'Live Harmonica Scenarios ', throughout my life .. I am over a half century old ...
& This "HB Mighty 5watt Tube amp, playing through a Harley Benton G112 Vintage " , is now most definitively ;
My new & most revolutionary Live 'Electric' Harmonica Sound ' on stage & recording ... ..
Thank you Thomann :)

Great Practice Amp!
MathiasD90, 24.04.2020
I love this thing!

I was searching for a great valve practice amp and then this comes out. i've been using this amp for quite some time and i'm totally satisfied. It's great for what it cost. I strongly advise you to buy also the matching cabinet because the boundle of the head and the cabinet produce a great sound.

Pro
-) Real valve sound
-) it's possible to switch the power from 0.1W to 1W to 5W
-) very good handling of pedals
-) portable
-) good looking

Cons
-) an incomplete eq (only bass and treble) not a big problem imho
-) i have preferred to have a bright control since sometimes i feel that the amp lacks of clarity (even with single coils) but it's just a personal opinion.

Conclusion
if you are sick of poor practice amp with noisy distortion and cheap effects this is the solution. Please be aware that this thing has only a clean channel so all the effects are not included. You have to plug inside your own effects.

Cheers

A perfect upgrade!
Pyrowolf, 30.12.2020
After 15 years with the same Marshall MG30, I wanted to upgrade. Watched loads of videos on Youtube after coming across this item and seemed pretty good. My budget is pretty low so couldn't afford any big name brand but this works wonders plugged into the HB 2x12 Vertical Cab. Having the option to toggle the watts is handy, especially in a small house with little children next door not wanting to listen to poor attempts at Meshuggah...

Works really well with my TC Electronics Fangs Distortion and Hall of Fame 2 and if I turned everything up to 10, I bet this baby could take it with ease.

I've never had a tube amp before but thie does run a little hot after a fair bit of use but this maybe normal for a tube amp. I say hot, more upper levels of warm.

All in all, if you're on a budget and have a few pedals to go along with this. Buy.

Nice little amp but eq is a bit lacking
Dzon, 25.03.2019
I intended this head for home use with a 1x12 cab.
I only used it set clean, didn't care for the singular tube distorted tones.

I feel the head is a good pedal platform, but it's a bit lacking in the eq department. With harley benton 1x12 V30 cab, I wasn't able to dial in enough high frequencies even with highs set to max. There was also a lot of low mids that made it sound a bit boxy and couldn't be dialled out. With Palmer 1x12 cab that has naturally a lot of high frequency content, it was much better, but still a bit too middy with les paul.

I think this head is very good for the price, if you have a cabinet that plays well with it and has enough highs. I also think it takes ST type guitars better than LP or SG.

In the end I decided to return the amp. If the eq was more effective I would have kept it.
