Wide range of British amp tones in a light package
MihaiM, 28.03.2019
I am using this amp at home, mostly as a pedal platform, using the clean channel. I am playing it mostly through its XLR speaker emulated output.

Sound: I don't own a VOX or Marshall, just, as far as I can tell from listening to other's recordings:
- with a few tweaks, the British Invasion clean channel can give you the VOX sound. I am using it with a treble booster in front of the input, and I cut most of the the treble from its EQ controls. This way, I get that classic, identifiable VOX tone, such as that of Brian May, Deep Purple, U2. Not a lot of headroom, the channel can be overdriven for quite a nice distortion.
- the Purple Wind hi-gain channel does a Marshallesque sound, bright and a bit harsh, if not controlled from the EQ settings.
- the boost function works great. It really increases the gain but also the volume a bit. Unlike other (tube) amps with boost I own(ed), the attack is increased and the distortion stays tight. Since the boost is adjustable, one can choose the right amount for their sound.
- the EQ controls are very sensitive. Extreme settings can be obtained.
- the reverb is nice just very long, deep.

Unlike its US-voiced brother, the two channels of Britwind offer the whole gain range one would need from an amp: the clean channel can be pushed into a light overdrive just with the guitar, while the lead channel takes it from where clean is leaving, going up into the high gain territory.

The builtin cab simulation sounds good to me. It is quite clean and does not emphasize particular frequencies too much. It can be turned off, which is a great function - this wa, an external, dedicated speaker simulation device or audio plugin can be used.

The direct output (XLR / line-out) volume is a bit too high for my setup, particularly on the clean channel. I need to turn the channel output volume down and the input gain of my soundcard or mixer down quite a bit.

The build quality is good, just not jaw-dropping sturdy; it should be handled with care. The slits on the top would easily let liquids or particles inside. The print on the jack panel is light gray on aluminum - barely visible unless properly lit.

Super Übungspartner
Schetti, 22.12.2018
Ich habe einen kleinen Verstärker gesucht, mit dem ich meine drei Boxen betreiben kann und der unter 1,5 kg wiegt. Im Moment spiele ich nur für mich und betreibe Homerecording, so dass der Liveeinsatz nicht im Vordergrund stand für die Entscheidung das Gerät zu kaufen.
Ich betreibe den BritWind an der Box eines alten Laney Protube Röhrencombos mit 75 Watt Fane Lautsprecher, an einer Selbstgebastelten 2 x 12er mit Celestion V30 und an einer Hugh & Kettner 4 x 12er Vintage Rockdriverbox.

Eines vorab: Das kleine Teil kann richtig laut mit tollem Klang!

Als ich im Thomannshop war, habe ich neben dem BritWind das Marshall Code 100 Top, den JoYoMeteor und den Orange Tiny Terror getestet und die Entscheidung fiel mir sehr leicht.

Nach diversen Beschreibungen und YouTube-Videos soll der HoTone Britwind im ersten Kanal den Sound des VOX AC30 nachbilden und im zweiten Kanal einen Marshall-Plexi-Sound erzeugen. Nun habe ich keine Erfahrung mit dem Sound der Originalverstärker aber mir gefallen beide Kanalvarianten des BritWind.

Jeder Kanal hat einen Dreiband EQ - Bass - Mitten - Höhen, einen Gain und Masterregler, funktionieren einwandfrei.

Kanal 1 liefert perlige Cleansounds bis hin zu leicht crunchigem Overdrive Kanal 2 einen Plexisound der sogar richtig böse klingen kann.
Ein zusätzliches Feature ist der stufenlos arbeitende Boost - gibt noch einemal eine ordentliche Schippe drauf. Der Reverb (linker Taster) macht was er soll. (keine Ahnung, ob es ein Federhall sein soll)
Der Lineout auf der Rückseite lässt sich gut für Aufnahmen in ein USB-Interface oder eine PA nutzen, hat auch eine ein-und ausschaltbare Spealersimulation mit an Board. Der FX-Loop für externe Effekte funtioniert - erzeugt bei Overdriv/Distortionpedalen allerdings ein Rauschen, so dass ich direkt aus dem externen Gerät in den Line-In des BritWind gehe - da rauscht dann nix mehr.
Fazit: Der kleine Kerl bleibt auf meinem Pedalboard. Sound, Ausstattung, Größe, Einsatzmöglichkeiten und Preis (229 ¤) haben mich überzeugt. Wer einen kompakten, kleinen Verstärker für sein Pedalboard sucht, wird beim BritWind fündig. Empfehlung: Einfach mal bei Thomann antesten, wenn ihr da seid oder bestellen da ja 30 Tage Rückgaberecht.

J'utilise ce matériel en répétition, sur un hp célestion vintage 1x12 , le résultat est très convaincant ,la reverb est suffisante , la présence de 2 canaux et du boost est impeccable, franchement c'est un très bon rapport qualité /prix , placer directement sur mon pedalboard.
