Unbelievable little amp and THE one to have

Pete-plays-guitar, 25.04.2017
I have not purchased a product in a long time which has completely blown me away in terms of really surprising me how good it it.

Firstly it is tiny, really tiny, just a bit bigger than a small carton of milk (can't think of other things that size) and weighs nothing at all (mainly due to the external power supply). I bought it in conjunction with the matching gig bag.

The second surprise for it's size is that t is loud, very loud. I am running it through a home-made 1x12 cab (as I personally think the matching 1x8 is a bit naff and there are lots of alternatives n the same price range - Harley Benton G112 for instance) and I am getting to 9 o'clock and starting to worry about the upsetting the neighbours.

I was split between this and the Micro Dark, but I wanted more volume before breaking and entering into distortion territory. With the gain cranked to 2 o'clock you get a gorgeous rock overdrive sound and above that into mild to middle distortion.

The tone control is very basic but extreme from ear splitting sharpness to sounding like it is under a dozen pillows. I have combined this with an Orange Two Stroke to drive the front end a bit harder and have a much wider control of the tone shaping and I am in heaven.

The Aux input is a 'bit of whatever', I can't see myself using it and they also dropped it on the Dark model. The lack of effects loop is also not a deal breaker.

You could easily do a small pub gig with this amp and there are many videos on the 'the tube' which show how it can easily drive a 4x12. There is also the option to swap out the pre-amp valve for a better one, but until the one in it dies, I am quite happy with the sound.

Lastly it is pretty much the price of a decent effects pedal. It is an amp that takes you back to basics, with a phenomenal sound and punch.

As I mentioned at the beginning, there are a few products which have given me a 'wow factor' over the years and this is quite high on that list.

This is an uncategorically superb piece of gear and highly recommended.

I am in love.

I couldn't help but laugh when I got this amp out of it's packaging, it was so small and cute! However that changed when I connected it to the Orange PPC108 cab that I bought with it because it sounded incredible!! I was completely baffled at how good it sounds.

Many people complain that this amp doesn't have enough clean headroom but it does. Granted, it doesn't sound Fender clean but it's still nice. But where this amp really excels is when you turn the gain up to 9, or 10 for some face melting british crunch! I play it mainly through a Seymour Duncan Stag Mag neck pickup and can honestly say that even though some people say this amp doesn't work well with single coils, it does! When I disable one of the humbucker coils the sound gets really creamy and crunchy, and sounds very tube-like.

I modified my Fender Mustang 1 amp so that I could connect its speaker to the PPC108 cab and now the amp sounds even better! The sounds seems more rounded and complete somehow, so I recommend running it with two 8'' speakers if you can to get the perfect Orange sound.

Pro's:
- amazing build quality
- awesome sound
- very responsive knobs

Cons:
None
