Jet City Amplification's flagship 100HDM Amp Head is two channels of Soldano tone and 100 watts of pure tube power. The Crunch channel has plenty of headroom to deliver clear, bright clean tones and can be driven hard enough to get downright raunchy. The Overdrive channel is the circuit that made Soldano famous. The HDM version also includes the famous Soldano Depth Control, and a metal front baffle, standard. The 100W/50W brings the pain from four 6L6 output tubes in 100W mode, or in 50W mode two tubes are turned off causing the power section to work harder to reach the desired output level, resulting in some pretty hot power amp distortion. Rounding out the feature set is the wire-mounted blue LED, just because it looks cool. This LED is socket-mounted so it can be replaced with other colors, a daisy-chain of several LEDs, or removed entirely.

Comments about Jet City Amplification 100HDM 100W/50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:
Great amp for the price. I picked one up for a screaming deal online and hooked it up to an EVH cab. The more I played it, the more I liked it. It has just enough gain on the overdrive channel to get a heavy sound, but it's really made for 80's rock. I like that you can get pretty extreme with the knobs and it still sounds good, so it gives you a lot of variation without changing the sound too much and ruining the sound. It has a great transparency and you can really hear the overtones from the strings even with a lot of gain. It has a good amount of bass, but it can get overpowering quickly. It's also a very bright amp, so pair it with darker speakers like GT-75's or greenbacks... no V30's. You can get it to clean up and it sounds nice but I do wish it would be a little cleaner with the gain above 2 on the crunch channel. It sounds decent at a low volume, but sounds so nice and thumpy cranked, so don't expect to get those tones in your apartment without a call from your neighbors.
