"Orange Crush Pro 120: Way better for you than soda!"
I've given it a couple weeks after getting this amp so that I don't write a mushy, "honeymoon stage" review...however, I only love this amp more and more with each day, so here is one anyways. I bought this amp sight-unseen, and while I was a bit apprehensive about doing it that way, luck was on my side and this turned out to truly be the best amp of its price range. Being a guitarist of the drop-A persuasion, I was wondering how well this amp could handle that tuning with a lot of distortion on it. A quick adjusting to a ballpark of my usual settings, a trip to the dirty channel on the footswitch (not included with this amp, I had to buy mine seperately), and I was presented with some of the warmest, biggest, air-moving distortion sound I have ever heard, and I am glad to say that as far as note clarity goes in A with this amp, it is, at least in my experience so far, one of the clearest sounding amps I have ever played through, sending even the nastiest of dissonant chug chords ringing out to the sky with ease.After getting a taste of the distorted side of things, I decided to try out the clean channel, and was likewise blown away by the warm, full sound of the tone there, like the sound was an old friend to the ears that seemed familiar, and yet new all the same. Which brings me to one area that I was incredibly impressed with--the reverb. All 3 types of reverb add a nice sheen to the tone, my personal favorite being the "Hall" reverb. I use a lot of it on my cleans now, and even a touch of it on the distortion channel to make my tone a little bigger. All in all, this amp can do just about anything you want it to...you are only getting a small piece of the true story from me, the rest is waiting to come home to you from zZounds!!
Nu-metal, metalcore, anything heavy!
