  • Not Bad

    As reviewed by Kelly Baker on 4/23/2014

    3 star review, as I kinda fell for the hype on this head. I've played tube, solid state, digital and modelers and can hear the difference in all of them. That being said, I did find some good things about this head. The cleans are outrageous. My guitars all loved the exquisite rich tones it can express. No problem with the clean channel. My big issue is the tone on the dirty channel. It's tweak-able but you really have be patient dialing it in because it is as sensitive as an amp can be. I found it really thin and fizzy and not a huge fan of scooped sound, but after painstakingly experimenting with the settings, I was able to dial in some tones and learned pretty quickly to take pictures of my settings. (-1/3 too sensitive, not a good back up - try Ampeg Solid State for a reliable backup) I love solid state and this thing is built for an arena. Seriously, in the studio and rehearsal space, I never saw "4" on the volume's too loud to mic and get good distortion or tone in the studio. Outdoors, cranked, this thing dominates and is obscenely loud. This might be the first time in the history of these reviews that someone has complained about an amp being too loud, but seriously, a master volume knob would solve all of this. (- 1 star) I'm a pedal guy, so the DSP fx rarely were engaged. I did use the reverb a little on the cleans, but it interfered with the tone on the dirt channel. The FX loop took pedals nicely with no drop in volume or tone. A foot-switch would have been nice. I dropped it 1/3 of a star for no foot-switch. The look is beautiful, but the tolex is easliy scratched. Even by something as light as a guitar pick. It will not win on the road like that. Non durability earns -1/3. I would never confuse this for a tube amp, and would rate it lower than the digital Line 6 Spiders based on inability to master control the volume. Acoustic makes really nice bass heads, and the Tube Lead heads are making progress. The price is ridiculously low, and then the old adage "you get what you pay for" comes to mind. Practically invisible customer service, but that's to be expected by an overseas offshoot of the original company. Acoustic USA are great dudes. Here's hoping they learn how to develop this product.

  • This is solid state?

    As reviewed by JONATHAN SMIRNOFF on 12/20/2012

    Bought a Marshall MG100HCFX because I needed a solid state that I could gig with. My tube amps were failing me too often and I needed reliability. Took the MG home, played it a couple days and was not happy. Did more research and found the Acoustic Lead Series Head. People were speaking very highly of it so I went to the store and plugged it in. Within a minute of playing I overheard one of the salesmen asking another if it was a tube amp. The answer is no, this is solid state, but you would not know that by listening. It has such a warm, round and full clean tone. The stock overdrive is pretty nice too. I've yet to plug my full pedal board in yet, but right out of the box I am very pleased. Not to mention this head costs significantly less than the MG. If you're looking for a great solid state, this is it. Even if you're not looking for solid state, check this one out. Worth every penny and then some. Acoustic got it right.

  • For this price

    As reviewed by Michael Gibbons on 11/19/2012

    I really like this amp.Better than I expected,But im an Acoustic amp fan from way back so I had to try this out. Intended as a back up but I'de use it for a live show any day. Anyone on a tight budget can't really lose with this especially at this price. I'll be adding some floor pedals in front of the clean channel so i have more options.I also found a 2 button switch for Rythmn /Lead/ Effects on off. Basicaly I'm creating a back up/alternative amp set-up for fun.I'm satisfied with this amp and would not hesitate to use it live.
