great rock/metal amp
By: Robert Babczak from Fairbury, IL. USA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
as far as i can tell its built like a tank, but its as heavy as one too. thats the only draw back ive been able to find so far.
How has it stood up over time?
ive only had it for about 4 months now but so far no problems.
Your general opinion of this product.
im hardly a professional but my overall opinion is very high so far. my only problem with this amp besides it being heavy is that it is too loud to practice with in a house, thats right i said it - its TOO LOUD. if you want an amp for house practice this is not it. this amp is more than loud enough to play outside gigs with much less in a bar. just for the sake of comparison i had this amp turned up just a hair above 1, my friend had a peavy half stack turned up to 3 to match it.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
the independant clean and distortion controls are very strait forward and easy to use.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
from classic rock to modern heavy distortion, this amp seems to be able to do it.
How did the stain or paint job look?
looks to have high quality fit and finish, does not look cheap at all.it hasnt left my house yet though so i dont know how it would do with travel wear.
How was the action out of the box?
very simple to set up and start using.
