  • I am consistantly shocked at how good this amp sounds

    As reviewed by Grant Harrison on 1/10/2012

    I had my HT1-R for about a year now, and had a good chance to compare with other amps too.It is almost loud enough for band practice[but you could just line out to a slave or a P.A system].You can fine tune the gain much better than most amps using the gain and ISF control.Sounds great with single coils or humbuckers.Everything from spanking clean,blackface sizzle and chirp, to full rich shred. I have used this for recording from the line out and this works really well also.Reverb is O.K and well worth the extra few dollars. Don't be fooled by the 1 watt output,or the price, this is a seriously good, and very useful little amp, which will upstage some much more expensive tube amps.I've just sold a Mesa Boogie studio calibre because this is better ! It does clean/crunch way better than my '66 super reverb !.My texas special strat just sizzles through this .I tryed the 5 watt model but I thought this sounded better.Needs a few hours use before it sounds its best.

  • Seriously? only a few reviews?

    As reviewed by Bryan Overcarsh on 8/3/2012

    Why aren't there more reviews of this amazing amp? My only thought is that users are too busy playing this thing to write a review. This is the first review I have ever written about anything on the internet, but this amp has inspired me to spread the good news of AMAZING tones at low volumes, plus, it has a headphone jack (which my wife says is her favorite feature - more a reflection of my playing than of this amp). No you cannot gig with it, but if you are practicing (I practice 99% more than I gig - and you probably should too) - this amp is incredible. Just a few knobs to turn but you can get insane tones out of this thing. Everything from a fender deluxe-ish sound to a Marshall like sound, great cleans, sick overdriven tones, and everything in between. I don't annoy the neighbors, I have a happy wife, and I can't stop using this sweet amp. I have had it for almost a year I think and I hardly play through anything else when I am at home. Plus it records well. I have had no problems with it over the past year, it has a great construction with a comfortable leather handle that is nice when I am carrying it around for travel, and sounds boss in a small room in spite of the small speaker.

  • Great Amp!!

    As reviewed by RENE DIAZ PINA on 3/3/2012

    You have to be clear about for what you will need this amp for. If you need power and volume try something bigger, this one can soun loud, but its mainly a practice/recording amp, band playing it's not its purpose. Cleans are great, OD is great, and Reverb is great also, very easy to use. You get Heaphones Output and also Record Output. And a Line Input, that is very useful. Quality is great, sound is great. If you're looking for a small portable amp, with real Tubes, this one is it. I had a Roland Micro Cube, and this one is at another level, well, it should, you're paying twice the price, but this is a more professional practice amp. The Roland Micro Cube is good at what it does, but I am very happy that I changed to this amp.
