Misha posted this video on his youtube page and said the following in the description, "People have been asking me for videos of my Strandberg and Zilla 2x12 Cab as well as for a MAKE TOTAL DESTROY playalong, so I figured I might as well kill all those birds with one stone!". You can clearly see the EVH in the background.more
This is the best amp I've ever used, hands down.
It is extremely versatile, with almost limitless gain to play with across three channels, it is incredibly difficult to find a bad tone. Even if you're not a metal head (and if you are, look no further) this amp will deliver a tone you'll love. The clean channel is bright and clear, but dial in the gain and you'll get a great dirty tone. The crunch channel can offer such a wide range of sounds, from dirty to some fairly heavy tones, but if it's heaviness you're looking for then the lead channel has your name written all over it. An insane amount of gain makes this channel ideal for your lead stuff or heavy metal riffs.
The presence and resonance knobs (the latter of which is located on the back of the amplifier) provide yet more options for finding new sounds or perfecting your dream tone. With the resonance whacked up, it really booms and is great especially when playing on your own... when playing in a band dial it down a little to avoid clashing with the bass player!
The foot switch that comes with it features zero delay channel switching buttons, so stamp on it and there will be an immediate response from the amp. It also has an effects loop button which allows you to turn all of the pedals running through the loop on and off with one simple press of a button, saving unnecessary pedal dancing!
Another cool feature is the option of MIDI switching, so if (like me) you have for example a Line 6 M13, you can change the channel on the amp using your pedal board - for instance, with one button press I can go from a clean sound with lots of effects to a completely dry crunch sound.
My only slight dislike is that at low to mid gain settings, there is a bit of a volume jump between channels 1 and 2. This is because they share EQ and gain knobs, to save space and money - if you want separate knobs for each channel you'll have to upgrade to the 100W bigger brother. However, in my opinion this small inconvenience massively outweighs the benefits of going for the 50W version over the 100W: for starters, the cost savings are huge (you'll struggle to find a valve amp this good for cheaper); the weight savings are substantial as well, which is a consideration if you are gigging a lot, and finally, unless you are performing in stadiums you really don't need the extra volume that the 100W offers - trust me, this amp is #%*€$#¥ LOUD!!! Plus, if you're at home with a 100W amp you won't be able to crank it and let the valves sing, whereas they really do with this!
So, buy one. You won't regret it!
I bought this amp after watching Rob Chapman's review with Andertons, it's pretty awesome https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oxUuXyXPhpY
I got this amp on a recommendation of many guitarists and I am glad I did. It's got great tone, gain, and clean, all with 50 watts. Seeing other bands I am influenced by like NOFX and Strung out using the same gear as me was a no brainer
