Do NOT buy this amp unless you are a player, because you'll think it's a 1 trick pony. It's not. You have to finesse this amp. You can get everything from punchy clean pickin' to thick lead tones, just by diming it out and using your volume knob and maybe a compressor pedal. I didn't buy this at Musician's Friend (I didn't even know Musician's Friend carried Budda, kind of a surprise), but would absolutely recommend this amp to anybody who knows how to play. If you can admit to yourself that you are not quite there, then get an SD-18 or SD-30, because then you'll have a bit more control over your tones from the amp. I'm not sure if this is the best live amp in the world, but for studio work I have yet to hear better, really! You could do any session from Carrie Underwood to Marilyn Manson with this little beast. On mine, the wiring is absolutely perfect and clean, the controls are ridiculously simple, but that's good because you don't need 70 switches and pull pots to make a Budda sound good. Great job, Budda!!!
I just got this and really love mine. Creamy, beautiful tone that you can almost bite into! Very good with the volume control on the guitar, just back it down for a great clean tone. I know it's expensive, but this Budda will only get more valuable in the coming years. Not an amp you want to take on the road, just because of its really nice covering, but great for the studio or just as a bragging piece, which is what mine is.
just an awesome looking and more importantly sounding combo.Use your volume control on the guitar to go from anywhere between great cleans and phenominal means.It cost alot, BUT --ONLY 100 are being handbuiltTone to literally die for...A Real Keeper for certain
The Twinmaster has a very unique Vox-meets-vintage-Marshall combo feel/tone. Chime turns to purr to wail as the volume goes up. The 18-watt amp is VERY loud!! The only caveat is that it doesn't really start to sound great until you hit about 3 o'clock!! My experience is that there is NO substitute for a certain amount of volume. Because the amp isn't harsh sounding, the volume just isn't as much of an issue. Plus, on a tangent that is RARELY brought up, touch, tone and note selection plays a HUGE role in how volume is perceived. I love this amp so much, I purchased an early (Sr# 0021) PTP Budda Superdrive 18-112 combo. It has a similar, but slightly less "open" clean channel, but an AMAZING lead tone. Very much like a great plexi with considerably more front end gain on tap. On large shows, I play about a dozen large (10,000+ audience) outdoor festival shows a year, I run both amps together via the Slave out function. I spread the amps a few feet apart and bask in the glory!!! Sound engineers constantly tell me that my tone is beautiful and applaud me for not being too loud.....even though I play louder than most nowdays.....rock on
I have been playing for about 26 years, and I have had all kind of amps, from bassmans to bogners and diezels etc.. and this one, it aint bad but its no big deal, not for its price, tell you what, get a mesa boogie mark IV and be happy, that amp does it all, its not purple but man it rocks!
I played serial #001 of the Budda TwinMaster 10th Anniversary at the Budda HQ in SF. This amp has M150 signal caps instead of the Orange Drops of the original Twinmasters and sounds really punchy and smooth. It sounds great, but not really different from an original Twinmaster. That means it?s not excessively bright, but is still articulate with a lower-mid focus in the tone. It is thick-sounding and dense. The Normal Input will create a good crunch when dimed with humbuckers. The High Gain input is all about pyrotechnic rock guitar when dimed. Lots of touch-sensitive compression and quite a bit more gain than most non-master amps but will clean up nicely when the guitar volume is rolled off and pick attack is lightened. This amp is a blend of Deluxe, AC30 and Plexi with a midrange that?s distinctly Budda. It?s the loudest 18 watt amp I?ve played. Not a beginner?s amp. It rewards light, sensitive, dynamic playing but will respond explosively on demand.
i bought this amp for my hello kitty strat about a week ago. i thought it would be a good amp because it is so expensive. i was wrong. i couldnt find any of those cool knobs to change the tone or even a volume control on this thing. it sounds horrible and it is a big waste of money.
