"The New Overlord of Tone!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I should be playing this a long time. I may upgrade the tubes to 2 JJ 12AX7's, a JJ 12AT7, and 2 JJ EL84's when the time comes. I would definitely replace it if stolen. If I were to upgrade to a 50W head, it would be the JCA50H with the J48S cabinet.
This amp goes from shimmering clean to down and dirty just by adjusting two knobs! I've heard friends gear which cost twice as much with half the tone. Takes pedals extremely well (especially my Visual Sound pedals).
I would have liked a spring reverb, but again the whole Keep It Simple, Soldano philosophy applied. It has something other 15-20W amps don't have, a stand-by switch.
Ease of Use
Pre-amp, Master Volume, 3-band eq. If you can't dial up perfect tone, maybe you should stick to your Paper Jams.
Mine is high quality. Had to redrill a hole on the rubber foot of the cabinet where my 2 yr old tried to drag it across shag carpet. Of course he could destroy a Boss pedal if given 5-10 minutes :)
One of the best sounding amps period. And you won't have to take out a second mortgage or sell one of your kids to afford it.
They answered my questions very quickly.
The Wow Factor
Very stylish design, awesome tone, simple use, and great support. Makes me happy!
