Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great budget Head!!"
Sound: The tone of this amp is amazing. With this being said, don't think that you will get a sparkly Fender clean sound. This is not the amp for clean headroom! This amp is a bout crunch and gain. The first channel which is called crunch provides a thick and crisp overdrive when gain is past 3. Clean tones are attainable with gain below 5 and adequate control with guitar volume and delicate picking. The overdrive does rool off nocely with guitar volume and with the gain at 3/4 can put many amplifier lead channels to shame. The second channel is labeled "overdrive" and kicks like a 3-legged nija. The gain has gain on top of gain and can achieve heavy tones with a nice tight edgy sound. Anything from old to modern is attainable. Feature: Footswitch is include and is built like a tank. It has a nice visible blue LED. Ease of Use: The controls on this head are made simple enough for the slowest learners. Each channel has a gain and volume which is nice to achieve desired sound levels, but lacks a master volume which is no big deal. The effects loops is good, but will wash out reverb if gain is set to a high level. I have tried with many different pick-up combinations, but this amp accells with humbuckers, especially if they are active. Quality: Not built like a tank!!The amp is made for players on a budget and looks good. It could be built tougher, but for the money it is definately worth it. Value: This amp is priced for players on a budget and .......just buy it, you won't be disappointed.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Home Run"
Overall: Great amp, regardless of the price. I have this amp running into a Marshall 1960A 4x12 with Celestion gt75 speakers and it's fantastic. It is every bit as good, although different, as my EVH 5150 3. I love the tones. It's a great amp and it's not going to break the bank, rare these days. It would be worth it at twice the price. The first channel is crunch but some good cleans can be had if the gain is set below 3. Crank the gain and you're in modded JCM800 territory. Lots of variety and dynamics in this channel. The second channel is overdrive and it's the reason you want this amp. Soldano DNA in spades. this channel starts where the first channel stops and gets better. Up to about half way the distortion increases, after that it gets smoother and some compression starts, but in a good way. If you want outstanding hard rock and metal (up to thrash and early 90's metal) you can't beat it. Throw on a tube screamer and you can get more modern tones. Buy it!
