Overview

The B-52 LS-100 Guitar Amp Head represents the latest in the ever expanding line of highly acclaimed B-52 guitar amps. Friendly features combined with the latest advancements in preamp technology makes the LS-100 amp head an outstanding choice for the professional player and the weekend warrior. The clean channel now has the exclusive B-52 "Mid Cut" feature. This push-button allows you to select the classic, warm vintage sound or a pristine, almost acoustic-like tone with tons of headroom. The overdrive channels go from moderate classic breakup to monstrous gain, totally controllable thanks to the individual gain and master controls for each overdrive mode. The overdrive channels now feature the new, B-52 assignable Contour control. This allows you to preset the Contour control and have it automatically activate on the gain channel of your choice. You can set one overdrive channel for a punchy midrange tone with the Contour off and turn the Contour on the other overdrive channel for a massive, totally scooped out metal tone.

Whether you are playing to a stadium crowd of 50,000 or practicing at home in your garage, the LS-100 will produce awesome crunch, smooth mids and crystal-clean highs. It is also capable of producing massive amounts of distortion, perfect for any style from blues to metal.

This Amp Rocks The House

By David Gross

from Burlington, VT

Comments about B-52 LS-100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

Three channels, Hi Gain, and enough Reverb to get a surfer wet... Honestly just plug in a guitar with EMG's or Duncan's and think Tony Iommi or Tool...Gain 2 has bags of distortion without loosing definition. The Reverb is adequate but I add a chorus peddle for "over the top" situations. This amp does more than Metal and Thrash but I bought it for Metal and Thrash and it does that perfectly.

Keep Looking...

By Alex

from Chicago, IL.

Comments about B-52 LS-100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

If you're looking for a modeling amp that does metal, stop reading this and look else where. I was very unimpressed with the overdrive on this head, when it came to the metal department. Great, surprisingly warm tones for rock, but that's as far as it goes. Good clean tones too, though. Decent amp, just not for metal. The cabinet, however is phenomenal. I would recommend the matching cabinet to anyone.

decent for the price

By Lance

from Blythe Ca

Comments about B-52 LS-100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

nice amp if your looking for cheap one for shows, handles gain from my pedals good and has more than enough power for smaller shows that arnt mic'd i also have a 1980's jackson reference 50 and that wins out but its a tube amp. quality on the b-52 is ok, living in a small town and having to travel 100+ miles to play with simular genre of bands (hometown is mostly punk) so there is some wear and tear that is bound to happen with you throw a whole bands gear in the back of a pickup and stack everything like a game of tetris but for a good second amp or gigging amp it'll do everything you need. reverb is ok, deffenetly not fender reverb quality.

A bit of a let down...

By Grubbman

from Chicago, IL.

Comments about B-52 LS-100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

A friend of mine bought this half stack, and was convinced that it was the best modeling amp out there. So naturally, I had to hear it. I plugged in my Jackson Dinky DK2M and began on the clean channel. The clean channel sounded really good, but it's hard to mess up a clean channel. Then I went over to the overdrive channel and was impressed and let down all at the same time. It has a great classic rock overdrive tone, I mean really, really good. But when I went into overdrive two, the "metal" overdrive, I was greatly dissapointed. It just didn't have a great kick in the butt for that true, crunchy, meaty metal tone. If you want an amp that is good for most genres, look no further, but if you need a modeling amp to do metal, look else where, my friends.

Great amp

By Ryan Deusenberry

from Carson City, NV.

Comments about B-52 LS-100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I just traded in my Carvin SX 300 amp head, due to it couldn't handle my pedals and it did suck. This amp kicks some serious butt. It can handle my pedals and it really beefed up my sound. This defintly one great amp. Well worth the money. It can compete with the big boys. I recommend you get one.

Great Solid State (You wouldn't even guess!)

By David

from Grand Rapids, Michigan

Comments about B-52 LS-100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I wasn't originally looking for/at this cab/head combo. I wanted the Line6 Spider or Marshall MG4 series. The Spider was great, but I'm not into mostly digital displays or controls, and the Marshall didn't quite have the low end I wanted. My guy from GC recommended that I at least TRY the B52. Of course I was skeptical, since the price, but what the heck. I plugged this baby in and I was won over from the first notes. The cleans are so crystal clear, and the amount of low end you can get (gain) is simply stunning. I play everything from Hendrix to Hoobastank, and this amp deals with it perfectly. If your in the grey area deciding, at LEAST give this amp a try. I personally promise you'll be taken in for a ride. Btw get the matching cab.

Awesome sound from this amp !!!!!

By john Traugot

from Tucson, Arizona

Comments about B-52 LS-100 100W Guitar Amp Head:

I have had this head with matching cab for a month and a half now and it is truly amazing.2 overdrive/gain channels give you endless tonal possibilities and the independent contour is phenomanal.the clean channel does it all from shimmering clean to gritty blues.This amp is truly amazing and a competitor for some of the bigger name brands. DO NOT let the price fool you this amp is a heavyweight contender. Check 'em out you wont be let down.
