"Best small amp out there"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This amp is basically the same amp as a 5150 III 50 watt, but without the clean channel and circuit design from the 5150 IIIS. (which I hope evh will make small version of that head soon!) Only 15 watts (and switchable to half power) and it's a very loud 15 watts! You could play it with a band without any volume issues. I use a custom made 2x12 cab with eminence speakers wizard and man-o-war, it powers that without any problems! Also used it with the Ibanez thermion 4x12 stack, no problem, very loud like it would with a 100 watt head. Amp has all the ohms settings, 4,8, and 16, all the power, standby and half power switches are on the back to save space This little amp sound amazing! both channels are great. the blue channel still has plenty of gain and of course the red can go from ac/dc to slayer gain! Also dose have light dirty/clean sound if you turn the gain down. had a bugera t-50, blackstar ht5, blackstar ht20,(owned larger heads, peavey xxx, Randall rh100, 200, bugera 6262, Randall lynchbox LB103, Randall rm100,) trust me this amp blows the smaller amps and some of the larger amps listed away, volume and tonally! I've been playing guitar for about 25 years owned tons of gear, bought and sold over the years. It doesn't full short like most small amps do gain wise, theres plenty of gain on tap and it's very structure (the eq dose work well) 5 pre-amp tubes, not 2 or 3 like most small amps have! Highly recommend guitar read more amp! It's the best small amp I have ever played! I did the 8 payments here on zzsounds just to make it easier so I could "play and pay" and I could own a top shelf amp
