  • I liked it after modding it

    As reviewed by timothy dempsey on 12/10/2012

    I didn't like this amp out of the box. It just sounded a little too schizo. I couldn't get a consistent sound out of it. It has some weird overtones and harsh overdrive sounds. After replacing the tubes ( the stock tubes were literally the worst sounding tubes I have ever heard - I just pitched them in the can)and then putting a 20 henry choke in it (same as AC30) and upgrading the resistors that attach to the tube sockets with Allen Bradley 2 watters, it's a different beast. I made a recording recently in a bedroom with too much glass but it will give you an idea of what it can sound like. I was using an 82 SG for both guitar parts.

  • Thank YOU JESUS!!!

    As reviewed by michael tuminello on 8/12/2013

    Sound: i have been a pro player for 30 years. i have had marshalls, hiwatts, carlsbro, soundcity, and many more. they are all great amps in the right setting. but i always had to use a distortion pedal to get enough gain. with the jca22h, i put 1 vintage brimar ecc83 (12ax7) in the first clean tube socket, and 1 electro-harmonix 12ax7 in the 2nd socket of the clean channel, 1 new old stock vintage mullard ecc83 in the 1st tube socket of the gain channel, and 1 vintage brimar ecc83 in the 2nd tube socket of the gain channel. i placed a matched pair of jj el84's in the output sockets. for a standard strat this is a screaming combination. this is the best tone i have ever gotten from any amp ever. the clean is so good because, with a drummer , You are on 1-1/2 gain and 10 on the master of the clean channel. superb dynamics! the clean channel stays clean, and is loud enough for a drummer. it does clean up as You lower the guitar volume. almost all tube amps sound better turned up loud. that is why 40, 50 and 100 watt amps are hard to get great clean tone in smaller venues because they are so loud turned up, hence the recent popularity of the low wattage amp. the gain channel is best at 3 on the gain and 3 on the master, no distortion pedal needed. the presence control has great effect also, just tune to taste. this is a class a/b amp and has more than enough volume for large rooms. the stock tubes are very very noisey. it is best to buy good tubes before deciding whether are not You like this amp. jj el84's sound good in this amp. electro-harmonix would be my choice for a good new 12ax7. this amp does not do modern metal without a pedal. pop or rock is a piece of cake for this one. Feature: for me the most useful feature is 2 channels. 1-my situation is a garage sized jam room with real drums 2- i used 2 marshall cabinets, a 1960a and a 1960b 3-standard strat stock and ibanez rgt42bp w/duncans 4-i am a very heavy handed player 5-contemporary, rock and metal-all CHRISTian Ease of Use: very simple layout, both channels share eq so You will probably have to compromise somewhere. Quality: just got it. seems well built. we will see. china has been making good tube amps for at least 3 or 4 years. Value: You cannot beat this tone for this amount, not yet anyway. Manufacturer Support: have not needed it yet. but they did answer an email in 1 day. The Wow Factor: may have to buy another it is so good. Overall: i use a variac to lower the voltage to 113v.

  • I love this amp!

    As reviewed by jeffrey entsminger on 3/13/2012

    I owned one of the early Hot Rod 50 Soldanos, and this thing is pretty close to it tone/gain wise. Sounded great right out of the box, though there is some hum from the cheap tubes factory installed. Highly recommend this amp for those looking for a higher gain tube amp on a budget!
