General Your general opinion of this product. OMG I cannot believe how bad a$$ this little amp is. I've run it through single, dual, and quad speaker cabinets and it just got better with each one. I never realized how loud 1 watt can be. at 18 watts it rocks your face off! For my purposes it's a great main amp. It could easily be used as a cost effective backup amp for people with larger heads. BTW it sounded better than a Marshall JVM. Just saying. . . Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It is extremely well made and very dependable so far. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? N/A Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is supper clean. You will hear every mistake you make. This amp makes you a better guitar player by making you practice harder. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is H&K black with the blue lighting. It looks great. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Too soon to tell.
awsome little head

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? its extremely versitile, I have owned it since they came out with it, and its built to extremely high standards Reliability How has it stood up over time? again its allmost 7 months I have owned it, and its been awsome, no issues at all General Your general opinion of this product. I also own the extremely high and over priced duotone, which costs 6 times what this cost in american dollars, and ill be honest I sold the duotone, this little china deal has all the tone that had.......This will push your 4x12 with super ease, I have had this in front of 30 people, and on stage with me in front of thousands.....I want to add these come with the best DI in the industry, I have yet to find any company to beat the red box DI Hughes and Kettner has......I have swapped tubes for better tubes in this, and at the end of the day I went back to stock, it sounds better to me......effects loop is superb, I run a very pro rig and some of the most expensive stomps money can buy, and this loop is awsome......I run this head through a marshall vintage cab with 4 vintage pulsonic cone greenbacks, I also have a 2x12 with warehouse ET-65's, and it sounds fantastic through both cabs, it will do heavy well, cleans up nice when in the boost channel, I have no issues rolling the volume Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? its easy to use, and dials in tones with ease Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? it will do everything from great DR.Z snappy texas sounds to darker more Marshall JCM 800 sounds, its not an overall dark mesa style amp, but is voiced for the best of what Marshall ever had, its more of a marshall on steroids type sound, but the cleans are where it shine Finish How did the stain or paint job look? blue LED's enough said Action How was the action out of the box? played great from jump street, and just felt right, are there better amps, sure tone is subjective, but will you be happy?.....without a doubt its money well spent
