I do not need more

19.01.2017
Previously I had an old Fender Twin Reverb. He had to be repaired and was too loud for the apartment anyway.
Therefore, with clear, I need tube sound. And with low volume already something like distortion. I've heard on the Internet numerous videos and have stayed with this company.
Distortion goes well with this amplifier. Cleaner sound is also feasible and also pleasant. All this at room temperature.
The controls on this amplifier are all so that you can also hear the sound change. In other words, they are effective and it makes fun to look for new settings.

Features are not so many. What I would not rate as a downside, just like the processing. Have not yet reingeschaut and am also no radio and television technician.

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!
