I ordered this amp because I was looking for a reasonably priced, moderately powered 2-channel tube combo idealy with a Celestion speaker. On paper, this amp looked perfect - all the features you would want with nothing extra. When I plugged it in though, there was something not quite perfect - a moderate vibration in the faceplate, and more concerning, a heavy vibration deep in the cabinet when low frequency notes were played at mid-volume or higher on the clean channel. Disregarding that, I was also surprised that I could turn it up well passed half way in the store without drawing the attention of the staff or customers. If you are going to gig with this amp, I suspect you would be at it's limits in a medium sized venue unless you mic'd it. Again, on paper this amp looks great. It's entirely possible the one I played was just an unsual case (it was sent back RMA as defective). The gain channel is quite sharp with plenty of crisp fuzz and well deserving of the praise it is getting. Bottom line: At this price, quality is hard to come by. Overseas manufacturing is all but required to meet this price point (RG50-TC is Chinese built). Obviously, some folks really seem to love this amp. If you are planning to buy one just take care to save the packaging until you've test driven it (always a good idea with any equipment anyway) and be sure to check the volume level and the low notes on the clean channel before deciding to keep it.

I had the head combo of this for a while. It was cheaply built, and spent some time in the shop because of it. It sounded killer though when it worked. A real smooth type of heavy distortion, by that I mean it retained it's clarity. It didn't have just massive amounts of gain, but still had enough for most types. It had a flubby outlow end to it that various speakers couldn't dial out. Still sounding realy good, but not a chest pounding chunk. I just think it's HIGH PRICED for a CHINESE amp. Other companies chinese built amps are a much better value. You could get a Valveking 212 for this price but it would be heavier in terms of weight, but sounds just as good, or Peavey has two different 112's for quite a bit cheaper. The windsor studio would need an overdrive pedal to get this distortion however.

Just what i need

By Gabreal22

from Saskatoon SK Canada

See all my reviews

I've been playing for 3 years soild 5 off and on. When I got this amp I was impressed with the tube overdrive it was excatly what I needed. The sound could very from a decent boutique to a nice agressive high gain. Now I'm playing with Dean VMNTX which produces a good sound.The other players I know have the dime a dozen peavey and really I don't like it its to idk just not me so if you not into the whole peavey crazy try this amp you wont regret it for the price.

Great little amp

By Itsthatguyagain

from NEPA

I love the distortion on this baby. Plenty of great sounding tube gain. I mostly play metal, harder rock, and progressive stuff. The solo channel is a little bright for me. But the clean channel sounds VERY nice. I just bought it, and just re-tubed it with ALL new Groove Tubes. The amp came alive. I would suggest this amp for bedroom levels and band practice. It also makes a great recording amp. But def worth it to re-tube it with NOS tubes or Groove Tubes. My amp had a little noise on the clean ch. when I bought it. I replaced the three 12AX7's in it, and the noise is ALL gone. It must have been a faulty Eletro-Harm tube in the pre-amp section. Now she sounds great.

Big Sound -- decent price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Had an intermittent crackle/buzz when brand new then all power went. Turns out the 10 cent internal, main power fuse (a little buss type with the glass tube and metal end caps) was defective. It didn't blow, but was just not soldered together properly to maintain a connection. I initially thought the power stage went completely. I changed the fuse with non-Chinese type and WOW, well after changing the substandard Electro Harmonics factory tubes. These must have been culls/rejects i.e. they worked, but were very harsh to my ear with little bottom. After proper burn-in of the replacements (I used Mullard power tubes) it sounds as good as many amps I've used or owned: 1960s VOX and Gibsons, 1970s Traynor, Fenders many and Ashdowns. This amp is very capable in a package under 50 pounds. I use a fender tele and have had no further problems. It idles dead quiet and reverb is very respectable, does classic rock, blues, smashy stuff and heavy metal. I believe it is a very versatile amp and would have to be shown what exactly is does poorly. Again, like too many foreign built amps and gear, they allow stupid little cheap parts to cause problems and hurt product reputations. Conclusion, if you get a kinky one and get the kinks out it's a pretty rockin amp, hard to touch in the price range.

Tubular!

By Zeb-mtaQG

I doubt you'll find a better tube amp for the price. It has punchy, classic, warm distortion on the 2nd OD channel and a delightfully heavy crunch on the 1st. Not a huge range of sound, but it's not completely limited, either. Sounds like a Marshall. So far I have not been able to get a great clean tone out of it but it's not bad at all and the boost creates a fantastic bluesy sound. Great for any kind of music, really. I put my wah through it the other night and it's brought my love of the porno-sound back again! Basically just a straight-ahead damn good sounding amp. Do it.

great tube amp for gigs/practise/bedromm

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I tested this amp for about an hour at the shop with my bandmate, and I loved it! I was using my Epi LP Standard, and im sorry to say I barely tested the onboard distortion, because I brought my BOSS DS-2. I also brought my Ibanez Weeping Demon, and the wah sounds MUCH better on this amp than on my solid state fender 100 watt. Anyways, it sounded amazing with my distortion pedal, it had great crunch, and it could do fine for metal, classic rock, punk, hard rock, anything that requires either modern or vintage distortion. The cleans very pretty average, and were muddy at first, but then I turned the level down, and the volume up, and they cleaned up niceley. I am going to buy this amp for sure. I need something that is loud enough for gigs/practise, and that I can keep in my bedroom when I'm at home playing.

Just OK

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I play inside mostly alone and sometimes with a couple of friends. My musical preference is classic rock/metal as well as blues. I've owned this amp for 3 years. I play a squier tele with a noiseless single coil bridge and a PRS McCarty humbucker at the neck. The clean tone is lovely at low to mid volume and starts to bite when it gets loud, in fact it gets snarly at loud volume and that works well. The distortion channel has a good dirty tone that attracted me to the amp. The drawbacks are that there is an annoying and rather loud hum from the hi gain channels when it's turned past 4 and it makes this channel useless. I use a boss metal zone to gets my nasty tones and turned to about 7 the speaker bottoms out big time when palm mute-chunking. NOT NICE. I play with a guy who has a Marshall stack and when the speaker bottoms out trying to keep up it makes me mad cause I cannot afford a Marshall. Clean channel=good, hi gain channel and using distortion pedal(on clean chan) at higher volume=bad.

For Marshall HI-Gain lovers only

By Cybergall

from Branchburg, NJ

I wound up returning this amp because I hate the Marshall sound, which this amp does very well. Not much of a range of distortion on the O/D side. The amount of distortion that is introduced on a setting of 3 is what I would expect on most other amps on a setting of 7. Otherwise, it seems to be a very well built amp. The first preamp tube is in a shock mount which should do a great job reducing microphonics. I did not encounter any noise problems during my brief ownership of this amp.
