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.

Very reasonable price for valve head
maslascher, 12.08.2018
For that kind of price there is nothing to complain.
It has only just three knobs but they are doing the job just fine and it isn't really hard to dial in nice sounds out of it.
Very nice, not artificially sounding overdrive after 12'o clock on a volume depending on a pickups.
Well built and dimensions are very compact.
5 watt may not seem like a lot but actually it is very very loud so i usually set it to 0.1 watt in my bedroom.
If you don't like sound of cheap combos and you like valve tone it is definitely something to think about.
It would be very nice to see something with more features from Harley Benton since cheap(full) valve amps with that kind of quality is something you don't see.
