    Outstanding Amp

    By Dilapidus

    from Southern California

    Unbelievable. By far the best tone I have ever heard in person and I came off a 62 Skylark lovingly maintained. I'm just getting started with it.. but I've already found a tone I could use unchanged for next 10 years. I literally keep stopping and playing the notes slowly to hear this thing ring out. You should be prepared because it has a very dark tone. You will find the right spot though with a little knobbing.-1 on features, the tremolo bites and it really wants master volume. The switch from play to standby makes an ungodly pop. Probably should have been pushed farther into the filter section after the rectifier. SS rectification.. too bad.. they should put in a tube socket and a weber copper cap.The two channels share tubes in the preamp chain, which is dumb because you can't switch out tubes on a per channel basis. Finally.. you can't easily use an angled guitar cable due to the styling... I'm a form follows function guy.Don't let the quibbles stop you. This will be the best amp you own.

    Bass players who want a good warm tube sound and are looking for an expense amp with a vintage feel buy THIS!! The sound is so warm it feels like you are playing at home with your dog next to you by the fireplace !!!!!!! With a Gibson Thunderbird Studio Bass nothing can go wrong just get the cash and get it go!

    Awesome Blues Tone

    By Bloozman

    from Brevard NC

    Thats about it folks...For blues, this amp is the best. I play an ES-335 with P-90's, and the overdrive is killer. Its well made too, and has a cool retro look to it

    Great Amp!!!

    This Amp is far best for its value, sound quality and biult. I bought this amp 2 years ago and I love every bit of it. Great sound for any classic rock, blues and jazz, thought not a lot of features, and the reverv is a bit weak, but can be enhanced by changing the tube type, otherwise good sound, very clean and nice crunch when used with drive pedal. Highly recommend this amp,if you're into clean and natural sound buy this amp.

    Great Jazz Amp

    By Marshall Gibson

    from Beaumont, TX

    I bought this amp primarily to have something to use at small gigs. I used a Les Paul that I thought was like my own in the store and it sounded great. However, when I got it home my guitar did not sound as good. Just when I thought I would take it back I plugged my hollow body jazz guitar into it. WOW! Great round jazz bell tones! I gave it an 8 on features because I was not impressed with the tremelo and there is no cover available for this amp. However, the mix channel has some great sounds. For a hand-built, PTP wired amp I don't believe you can beat the price. I use this amp for jazz combo and big band gigs. It would probably be a nice blues amp but I think the speaker emphasizes the wrong mid range frequencies. On the whole this is a great amp at a good price.

    Review

    By Seanie Wil

    from New York

    This amp is great if you like good ole Rock and Roll and don't have the $$ to get a plexi. I personally like this better then a JCM800. I walked in on a whim to return my AC-30, which was broken. I saw this bad boy sitting over by the rest of the higher end amps and decided to try it out. I tryed out every other amp in the store and this one had the best balance of price and tone. The great thing about this amp is the pure crunch of the tube overdrive. The clean is great, not so chimmy though. The crunch is AMAZING. Straight STP/ TBS. wonderful. Not too high gainy, just perfect.
