  • unbelievable amp, unbelievable price

    As reviewed by jc on 1/23/2011

    i bought this after my ac30 was struck by lightning and rendered useless. i needed an amp, and quick, so i bought this head to perch atop my 5150 cabinet. i figured it'd be good enough to get me through til tax time when i'd buy a bigger, better head, but i've grown so attached to this amp that i don't even want to replace it. twenty watts is probably louder than you think, and most if not all of the venues i play at mic guitar cabs- thus rendering a 100 watt head to be overkill anyway. i get to crank this baby up loud to get some serious power tube overdrive that sounds absolutely killer. sometimes i turn this thing on just to bang out a couple of chords (way too loud for my neighborhood) just so i can bask in the tone... its only drawbacks are lack of multiple channels and lack of an effects loop, but at this price point i'm not complaining about it. i like this amp as much as my old amp, which cost many times as much. i kind of wish this amp wouldn't get popular so i could keep it as my secret weapon...

  • they should call it TONE city

    As reviewed by JT on 8/11/2010

    this little bad boy can do it all. i got this cause i wanted an amp that was small, but good go really loud when asked. what i got was that plus so much more. the 3 band eq on tube amps is so much better than solid-state or modeling amps. the gain is chunky, and in moderation, is what perfects the tone. it can also go to a blues roar, the type that makes you grimace but smile at the same time. it can also go to red hot electric if you turn the treble and presence up. and speaking of presence, that is probly the most important knob on the amp. its what you want to focus on the most when trying to find your tone. this is the amp that helped me find my sound. its incredible. the one problem: no reverb. for that you might want to check out the combo version. also, for higher wattage and a classic soldano overdrive channel, you want the 50 or 100 watt. but even without those, this is a great buy all around

    I initially wanted an amp to fill the need and give me low watt valve power until I could afford a more expensive and expressive amp, but have so far not purchased anything else. The staff at the local GC were great as well. I play mine through a Marshall 4x12 top cab with Celestion vintage 30s. I will say this. If you are a ham fisted dolt, or play cheap junky guitars, you will hate this amp. It will not cover cheap pickups, poor setup, bad technique, or unrealistic expectations. That being said, an expressive lively player with a good instrument will sound great through this amp. It is a one trick pony in my humble opinion, but does so in the tradition of it's classic forebearers. Crank the volume, pull back on the presence and play. It's that simple. The only thing I could add is that if they were going to deny us a head with reverb and effects loop they should have gone full bore classic and made it non master as well. This would have made it more like the old jtm 45s or superleads. However I do really like the amp and wish I had had something like this back when I first picked up a guitar. It's worth the money, but put new tubes in it if you want to get the most out of it.
