I came across one of these used and it really made my jaw fall to the floor. I thought hopefully the 20 watts would be enough for me, and it is perfect for what I had been searching for. I wanted a vox but came across this and I am glad I jumped on it. The cleans were as good as anything I have ever had and the overdrive can be versatile if you focus on the first touch. Overall I feel I cannot say enough positive remarks about this amp. If you want a small combo that performs like the champs that cost double the retail of this amp then do yourself a favor and try one out.
This is an amp that's great if you like the stack sound, but don't want to lug one around. It's got mouth watering cleans, and creamy harmonically rich marshall style distortion. The only draw back is shared EQ, but I can live with that. (The tone circuits are wired to where the mid affects the treble and vice versa)so it might take a little tweaking to find your setting.My stacks are long gone now. Replaced with the Edition tube, and a shure SM57 (but the mic hardly gets used) 20 watts is perfect for unmiced club gigs. It's a great amp, and I love mine.
My band practices on my drummers second floor. I get tired of lugging my other amps up and down the stairs every weekend. I bought the Edition Tube thinking it would be a lot easier to lug around. It was. But at a cost to sound. I use the Hughes & Kettner triamps and I have to say it was obviously a huge downgrade. I can say good and bad things about it, but I like it. If you like that, "tube crunch," in a combo amp, I suggest you consider this amp. I would compare the distortion to something like the Marshall DSL series. But I would take the Edition Tube over those any day because I've owned the Marshalls as well. I didn't really like the EQ. the treble and midrange parameters sound like they overlap quite a bit. It's pretty bright when the treble and mid are at 11-12 o'clock or so. But it seemed like the smallest adjustment down to either, to help with the brightness, would make the tone too flat. It's bottom heavy also.I mic the amp for the EQ reason above. We have our PA setup in the room so I have that luxury. An SM57 sounds great through the PA. I'm still experimenting with a Sennheiser e906. It needs EQ and compression if you mic it. so far the SM57 requires the least EQ. rolling off the ultra high frequencies with a parametric EQ until you can hear them being cut and a very small bell at about 1000hz should be a good starting point with the SM57. Overall I would say try it before you buy it if you can.
