"Brutal Sound, But Why The Knobs Gotta Be So Cheap??"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First off let me say that zZounds is amazing and they always deliver super fast. Im just lucky and I live in the neighboring state where their warehouse is located. Anyhow, this head is heavy, wasn't expecting it to be that heavy, which I guess is a good thing, heavy usually means quality. Sounds great. This is my first high gain/ higher wattage amp. I knew 50 watts was going to be louder than my 20 watt Bugera but I wasn't expecting it to be THIS much louder, WOW.I have to be super cautious when turning up the volume because the knobs are vey delicate and flimsy, thats my only issue with this product. For $1,000 EVH could have used better quality knobs, seriously, my $300 Bugera head has WAY better knobs. Knobs that have a very nice resistance and make it hard to accidentally turn up the volume louder than you meant to. Even the knobs on my $50 Metal Muff Nano distortion pedal has better knobs. I almost wanted to return this product because of that. 50 watts + cheap/ delicate knobs is not good. Upon further messing around I did notice that the volume knob on the red channel is a little better than the one on the first channel which works out for me since I bought this amp for the high gain and will be using the red channel mostly. This amp sounds amazing so I cant stay mad at it. I even compared my Metal Muff distortion pedal with the red channel and the red channel has so much more gain, which impressed me a lot. So to bottom line, sounds great, high gain, lots of power, but the control knobs are just so cheap.
