I am absolutely blown away by this head. It is one of the nicest sounding tube heads on the market. I have played everything out there and for this price you cannot beat it. Heck for any price it would be hard to beat it. Period.The gain channels are amazing, distotion/overdrive forever, real nice spring reverb, the clean is real clean and the tone...I don't even have words to say. It is built like a tank, has all the features you could ask for including a real nice 3 button pedal and a 3 way rectifier switch, just like the Mesa triple rectifier. I like this head better though and definitely better than any Marshall out there. Great for metal since the boys from Queensryke use them, I think they know metal. I wouldn't trade this for anything. You have to buy this for the price and if it's too much head, there is also a 60 watt version as well. Look out for these babies to become a major player in the next few years. Move over Soldano, Mesa and Marshall, here comes B-52

The look of this amp is really versatile. But thats all I found in this amp. The tones sound like I could play for a southern rock band like Skynyrd. If your into metal or Hard rock do not purchase this amp. It gets way to much feedback and it is a very noisy amp. I have the B-52 straight cab and it can pound out most tones of any kind. When I hooked up the ST-100 it made so much noise and so little gain on distortion. I would recommend the AT-100. My rhythm guitarist in my band has the AT version and it has such a great tone of distortion.Overall the ST-100 is not worth the price. It should actually be cheaper.

Great head for the price

By MetalHead4Life

from Georgia

You can't beat this head in terms of quality, price, and overall looks. I keep hearing that it's not suited for metal, but being that most metal guitarists I know of don't use the overdrive on the amp to produce their tones (rather preferring to use digital effects processors/stompboxes), this should make little difference. The rectifier selection is great for those who can't choose between SS and all-tube, with an AB1 setting for in-between. Excellent head for those looking to get away from the SS amps and want a quality sound without having to fork over a fortune for it.

A Beast

By Sloth

from Montana

This head is a beast. Plain and simple it's your tube head that cranks out sound that I would compare with peavey or mesa. It has a pretty good mid range gain tone and a very nice clean. If your looking to buy a good starter tube head or your looking for a main rig head then this is a good head to look at.

eh, not for metal anyways

By Mike-hQ824

from England

I just got this amp. I bought it on the basis of the comments previous to mine. Bottom line, this amp, regardless of quality, is not for metal. The gain levels up very high make only a slight chug, and that was tested by the EMG 81. Also, there is a ton of feedback at higher levels. This amp could be good, and, if you're looking for an amp that doesn't matter about the overdrive channel, then by all means, it's a great amp. The OD channel is just not cutting' it for me and my metal standards.

best bang for the buck without a question.

By Ã¦nigma

from Sunrise, FL

I currently have a Mesa triple-recto and I bought this amp for my son since he's been borrowing my mesa, and I certainly don't like that idea. I thought it would sound almost like mine since it contains 4 x 6L6, 5 x 12AX7, 1 x 12AT7, 1 x 5AR4, but I was wrong, it doesn't sound like a mesa, but You'll be amazed how good it sounds, it has its unique tone, yet you can taste the cleanliness of its cleans and the heaviness of distortion. How can this get any better? Take a look at the price tag!!!

Best ever I played

By killMachine

from crestview FL

See all my reviews

I have dragged this amp to every bar from new orleans to atlanta. I have put this thing through hell and it still sounds great. I play everything from the blues to loud-ass metal and B-52 handles it all. Never even heard of B-52 untill i saw it in the catalog and thought "what the hell". Well worth the price.

B 52 Head beats Marshall and Mesa

By Stratman-Dokfr

from Chicago

See all my reviews

Don't take anyones word on this. You have to go to a large store and try Marshall, Peavy, Mesa, Fender and then B 52. Tone, ease of use, flexability power, did I mention tone? And then there is the head plus cab price under the head alone with any of the others. Unless you need to pose with your Marshall or Mesa you may well be doing as I did..buying a B52!

amazing amp fellas

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Great amp. Loud when you want it to be, turn it to about 2, and its a great practice amp, a noise gate might help to keep the squeeling down at the higher levels, or buy a distortion pedal and a noise gate and get that combo of sound that you need, this amp will not be beat. For the price, along with a 412S cabinet from b-52 you will get an unmatched sound, beter than the AT-100 in my opinion, the tri-rectifier is by far the most inivative thing i have seen on an amp. Is it in your cart yet? buy this amp now!

Marshall/Mesa tone without the price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I actually own the AT-100 head, but it's pretty much the same thing. I was looking to buy a marshall stack but kept getting turned away by the high prices. That's when someone introduced me to the B-52. I was skeptical, due to the low price and the fact the they are relatively new to guitar amplification. but the instant I turned it on, I was blown away. This amp has the vintage crunch and with crisp cleans. The best tube amp buy out there.
