Good Amp

By Dannis from Travelers Rest on 11/11/2013 4:38:59 PM

A great little combo amp. I own 6 amps with most being tube amps. This amp has the power to be heard, but you can turn it down for a small room. It sounds great on all channels. It is solid built and can belt out metal on the lead channel. I bought it for backup to my main two big tube stacks. As with solid state amps it can not stand head to head with a good tube amp in sustain, and tone, but it is plenty good enough to get the job done. In a less than than great acoustic environment you cannot tell it from the tube amps. It only shows up in a good acoustic room. For a budget who needs loud and supper clear clean and wild overdrive, it is a great investment. It will last for years of hard knocks. The only knock I really have is that the on board tuner is erratic and useless. Do not depend on it. Always get yourself a couple of the new Sharks for your tuning or if you want to get a great tuner at a higher price get the Boss Chromatic. Long live the Blues, Long live Rock
