What is your opinion of this product?
While this is tooled as a Metal Amp, I would say it is more of a hard rock amp that can do metal duties. There are some hurdles to get over for that to work as expected. First is to use the volume on the channel as really the master volume and then to use the wattage selector as the overall volume control for stage volume. This gets the best tone. The amp really seems to like passive pickups over active pickups. All of the controls are smooth and the sound through a marshall 1960A makes me reminisce of old Sabbath but with a little less gain. There is a way to make it have more gain or a more gainy feeling and that is with the use of the preamp distortion, this does cause some noise, but works well, get a good noise gate. The amp is as loud as any I have had and the effects loop runs a fractal ax8 perfectly. Hope this helps anyone looking for a good hard rock and metal amp.
