Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Extremely Surprised"
Sound: With a little tweaking its a wide range of solid british tones from crisp and stingy to warm and milky to rip your head off gains. Make sure you bring it into club if possible and tweak it there, this amp is alot different with space, dont be afraid to try different speakers, the stock one is more than good but i made that change and its smokin now. Oh did I say touch sensitive yet...man! It would be good if the eq was a little more effective on the treble side, im gonna put an eq in the loop..problem solved! Feature: It is what it is, the controls are basic...the isf is cool in how it handles the midrange. Can't wait to try the direct out into the daw, and board. Ease of Use: Plug in,fiddle around a bit and your set...its that easy... Quality: For an amp in this price range I'm more than happy with the quality, It was a bit disappointing to see sub-micro components in there and hopefully that will not lead to issues with repairing the unit when time but this is a below 1000.00 range amp, a turret board model would be 4 times the price. Value: For the class that this amp is in, if your looking for a tight british flavor...this is the best choice in my opinion, its not a marshall, its not a vox, they have created their own thing i believe and made it affordable. Manufacturer Support: Havent had to use it yet...hopefully it will be a long time before i do. I have seen them post on boards around the net though so I believe that if you need help they would actually answer you...unlike some others out there. The Wow Factor: Once again coming from a fender guy, live this thing smokes my vintage gear...and it doesn't take 7 pedals to do it. This is a volume knob amp that actually works, you can make good music with anything but these guys are giving you a tool you can create with instead of doing the same thing again. Overall: I knew that when a couple of guys from marshall decided that it was time to do something worth buying I had to check it and I'm glad I did!!! I've owned my HT20 for about 36 hours now and for 30 of them I was extremely on the fence. I gig 2-3 times a week and and I got it to the club tonite I was so worried it almost made me sick...I'm a fender guy, (65 bandmaster, 68 bassman, 67 super reverb, peavey delta blues) those are my usual amps. When I got this amp setup and hit the first chord clean i was dumbfounded, It was crisp and not farty like my fenders, I could actually here the articulation in the cords aside from the rhythm section and in a small club thats not easy. People have reviewed that this amp can get a decent blues tone, IT CAN! and then some... I ran a tele strat with duncan humbuckers(three strat size) an SG Classic with p-90 in the neck and super distortion in the bridge and a les paul, and strat through it tonite. They all ripped in their own way...with just a boost to hit the frontend i was able to have cleans gritty texas( johnny winter) all the way to hard rock tones. I couldnt be happier...and the best part is the amp snobs that always show at the gigs really dug it too.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "One power tube and one preamp tube is often all you need!"
Overall: Surpassingly good blues tones, from Hendrix to Fender type of Cleans. Coupled with a Mustang Floor its a Fender Machine! Good Marshall tones as well especially with a Amp Modeler like the one I mentioned. ON its own it shines on,… bright and sparkly as well when you want it to be,..and dark heavy tones as well. The ISF is a cool feature. I personally would have made the effect more dramatic when turning. You often have to turn it all the way to hear the difference. The FX loop works quite different than other amps so that why I dropped a point for ease of use. You have to dummy the front end to go straight through the fx loop. That is not written in the manuel that Ive seen. I do notice a strange vibration at High levels but you can work it out with the bass controls. That may be a common occurrence sync I own 4 tube amps and the all have there shaky moments at high levels cause tubes are so powerful! By my fifth amp Im thinking a 5 watt with a 12 inch speaker could be the way to go for cranking it indoors. This 20 tube watts and over is like a sonic canon so mid levels is more appropriate for a small house or room. But its nice to have the extra power if your going to need it in the future. I think tube amps are something special that many new players under estimate since its a old tech. I think they are far superior to solid state. This is a A+ amp!
