Excellent amp for small gigs

By 

from Kalamazoo Michigan

I own an older Ampeg the twin reverb made back in the 60's and other then the weight of this it is a great amp and has always been a great amp. So when Ampeg came out with the GVT52-112 combo I was excited. The first amp I bought the spring reverb would not work but that is why I bought it through Guitar Center I brought it back to them and they got me a new one. This amp does have the tone you crave for I am a tone freak and having the total control over the sound is awesome to me. It is great for the small gigs I have done and I use the full power in all of them. I play a wide variety of music anything from old standards like Blue Moon, Spanish Eyes to Rock and Roll, Country and the Blues and this amp handles it all. You need a very clean sound for the old standards and channel one does a great job even when I hit the boost for the leads it stays very clean just boosting the volume. You want Country with a twang this amp can do this as well then you want to get into Rock and Roll turn up the gain on channel one and you get the light distortion you are looking for. You want more then click on Chanel two and watch out you will get great distortion and hit the boost for those wild leads. For the blues you want lots of Sustain and with a little adjustment you will have the sustain you are craving for. The amp is a little heavy but well worth the weight on the sound you are looking for. I have played my Gibson Les Paul, Fender Strat and Epiphone Reviera through this amp and have not been disappointed with it at all. I also can use my Digitech RP500 Pedal with this amp and even get the tones I desire. I would suggest anyone looking for control over there sound and does not mind doing a little adjustment to buy this amp it is totally awesome and you won?t be disappointed.

Tone Machine.......

By 

from Mt. Plymouth, Fl

I waited eagerly when Ampeg announced the throwback guitar amp line and I was not disappointed. This amp is all tone. Brilliant highs and incredible low end. Crisp, clear clean channel and and a rugged growl on channel 2. Reverb is even better than on old original Ampegs. The amp is highly adjustable sound wise with the gain control and the tone controls are very precise and give a lot of flexibility. The half power is nice but I use it almost exclusively on full. The boost feature is a bonus no doubt. If it is as rugged on the road as its predecessors, then the Ampeg company has done what it set out to do by getting back into the guitar amp business!
