Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
High end stuff for a great price
How has it stood up over time?
This is still yet to be determined. Working with the amp the tubes run hot. It will keep you warm in winter. The peavey6505 never gave any heat off for a tube amp. Research says tube amps get hot. so time will tell how it holds up
Your general opinion of this product.
Every Month I found some new sound, or re-tweek the EQ and find something exciting about this. I am an american metal player mostly and had the coveted peavey6505 before this amp, and just couldnt find my sound. Right out of the box this thing sounded great!
Only complaint is this head is 77 lbs withmost of the wieght on one side where the transformers are and a handle on the top. Wish it had side handles.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How did the stain or paint job look?
Black and sexy, you know what they say....once you go black......
How was the action out of the box?
sounded mint out of the box
