All-tube tone and DSP versatility.
With the ability to deliver powerful, harmonically rich overdrives with a fat, articulate bottom end for bone crunching power chords, and soaring, saturated solo voicings for lead guitar, Fallen Angel has become standard issue for the new breed of guitarist. Now, with the inclusion of state-of-the-art digital processing, the Fallen Angel DSP All-Tube series opens up an almost limitless range of tonal possibilities.
The FA 60 DSP Head combines a dual-channel, all-tube 60W amp section (feeding 2x12" speakers) with 16 internal DSP effects - including 4 Choruses, 4 Flanges, and 8 Delay programs, plus an internal DSP reverb section. Both channels offer flexible gain and EQ controls for a wide range of clean and crunch tones.
Equally at home on stage or in the studio, the FA 60 DSP Head includes a 4-way footswitch to select Channel 1/2, Boost On/Off, Effects On/Off and dual Master Volumes, and a Speaker Emulation circuit on the line level recording output.

I have this amp as well as the combo (2x12) version of this. Both essentially the same amp. Runs on 2x EL34 and 4 x 12AX7 valves. To get an old school punk sound I dial the Bass down to zero, mid to about half way, and treble all the way to 11. And it STILL has loads of warm bassy tone. In the head-version the DSP unit (reverb, plus other effects) seems to have stopped working and I'm not sure how to fix it (some research needed maybe). I have had some minor reliability issues with the combo whereby one of the channels went quiet. I took the tubes out, cleaned them, put them back in, intending to do the whole "switch the tubes round" thing to work out which one had blown and hey presto it all came to life again - turns out all I needed to do was clean them and put them back... So, I'd say if you want a low-maintenance amp, or you don't understand how valve amps work (like me until recently - glad I learned!) then buy something else. For the money this is a great amp, just watch out for that bass, it'll blow your head off!

Well, as far as features, this things has it all. 2 channels and a boost (acts like 3 channels), 2 master volumes (for solo levels), reverb, multi-effects, 4 button footswitch and even a switchable cooling fan for the tubes. Quality out of the box seems good. Tolex is fine, fit and finish is great. Everything works, no problems. I'm guessing they cut corners on stuff & have circuit board mounted tubes, etc, you get what you pay for.Only thing I don't like is that you can't adjust the effects levels. There are 16 to choose from so this isn't a big deal. Each has different delsy time, rates, etc. They sound good and are footswitchable (in/out).A very good sounding amp. You can dial in juicy cleans and the reverb is very good. As for gains, you can go from dirty to plenty of low end thump crunch. Metal is the order of the day!
Ashdown Fallen Angel is a Big Bang for the buck if you want a nice clean blackface tone,its there. And a low end bone crushing lead channel w/boost. I use it with 2 1960A Marshall cabs its sick TONE.Its a 2 channel class A that has much to offer someone on a low budget. I also have a Genz Benz boutique amp and tones are really close. The effects and reverb are very nice as well. No problems with this amp as of yet no need to call Ashdown. I perform anything from Chicago to Queen/ect... Note 60 watts of Extreme Power very clean when on 10 and lead channel is ureal Sick High Gain for the money only problem is you have to trust the hype. If you see one try it, I am glad I did.
The thing that drew me to this amp was the roaring, thumping bass power with the cruch tone of the distorted channel. It just reeks of power.The Distortion is exactly like mudvayne, which for me was perfect, it's an incredible amp; particularly after the power break stage, full volume.A must have for drop tuned/seven string guitars and lovers of heavy metal. Awesome.
I bought this head a little over a year ago and it is amazing! It is great for blues, jazz, classic rock, etc. And it is very loud! I have never had it turned up past 4 because it is unbearable after that!! The only downfall is the lack of distortion. This thing only pumps out enough crunch to satisfy the average rocker's taste. In my case I just use my DigiTech Death Metal distortion and everything is alright! But you will not find a better head for the amount of money you will spend on this one! Simply amazing.
