I used this amp for recording. I trashed all my pre-amp toys and just use the direct out (without effects) on this Kustom. The best tone ever! I add the effects later.
This amp is not only really, really loud and clean but it's extremly versitle. I use it for just about everykind of north american music and it keeps a nice loud rich sound.
This is the biggest amp head I've seen! I own Marshalls, Fenders, Crate, Laney, Rocktron, and B-52 amps. What speaker cabinet you drive this thru is going to effect the sound. I'm a recording musician and don't play out. This head will surely drive any 4 x 4 cabs out there. I run it through the Epiphone Valve Jr cab - 12 inch Eminence at 16 Ohms. This head has great power yielding a nice full bass - like a tube amp. The effects are real nice with the reverbs sounding authentic. Chorus and flanger cool, also. Plenty tones except the insane metal distortion found on other amps. What the Kustom has is an articulte distortion with nice sustain. Just enough to keep from sounding like mush. I don't like over satuated distortion especially when playing loud at feedback levels - then you get too much feedback. I love this amp even though it's heavy and a monster to drag around. I can get every tone I need out of this thing - just tweaking the settings. The tone controls are VERY responsive and can do alot! My only gripe is the shiny control knobs which I swiped out for black knobs with a white marker (gotta see the settings). A standard 2 channel foot switch works fine - this head is essentially two channels anyway. A great buy for the budget conscious.
Background info:Guitars: Fender J Mascis Signature Jazzmaster, Squier JagmasterCabinet: Hartke GH412AEQ: Bass: 3 Mid: 0 High: 7.5I must say that this amp is one of the best I've ever had the privilege of using. I play an eclectic mixture of shred, jazz, blues, etc., and this amp suits my tastes perfectly. Honestly, it is totally pwnz must tube amps I've used. With my J Mascis Jazzmaster, I receive a distortion tone that eclipses the majority of tube amps that I have used. The distortion tone, with the Jazzmaster, possess an opulence of definition and clarity. The effects are immaculate. The clean tone was hardXcore. With a dash of delay (which is brutal on this amp), the channel is reminiscent to that of a boutique tube amp. With my Jagmaster, I would rate this amp a 4.5 out of 5, but with the Jazzmaster, again, it is just hardXcore. Oh! and please cut your mids with this amp. It makes a world of difference.
I have had one for about 7 months now, the thing works like a champ. It is great for most any music, as you can tweak it out and use the effects to get just about any sound. I say most because you cant get an incredibly heavy distortion/overdrive for really heavy metal (4.5 features), but for about any other style it is very awesome. It works well with pedals on the clean channel to get that heavy distortion the head wont give, but I highly reccommend it as it is a very amazing head. I take it to band practice once a week along with the matching 4x12 Kustom cab, and even though it is huge (hugest head ive ever seen, not to mention heavy) it is totally worth every penny. There are 2 of them in my house, and 2 of the cabinets. straight and slant.
i just recently bought this amp with a kustom cab and i was blown away with the ammount drive you can push through this amp. the effects are killer. with the effects toner you can select the intensity of the effect you have chosen. for a solid state amp, this is a killer amp and i would say tops alot of the better tubes amps out there
I recently purchased the Kustom Quad 200DFX amp head and have discovered a fantastic sound. The clean channel, with the "Fat" preamp is awesome for a solid state. Aggressive, meaty clean tone - perfect for the classic rock I play.The distortion takes some tweaking - but with a little effort I have obtained the tone I was looking for. I turn the gain knob almost to 9 and set the bass to about 7, treble to 6 and mid to 4. But it's the fantastic chorus effect that puts it over the edge. I set the effect volume to about 5 - the echo and depth of the effect is perfect - I mean perfect! Solos scream with a retro wail without a hair metal fuzz tone - simply amazing.The only drawback is that a foot switch is not included with the purchase, and should be. I would pay the extra cost. I do however, highly recommend the head.
My brother got this amp and it sounds pretty good. Get it if you want a nice head with effects.
