this is my 1st solid state student amp purchased 25+ years after I started playing.... I got a beat up one on a larkfrom my local GC for like 10 or 15 bucks when I was buying strings.... I've been padding down the speaker out into a DI and suing it as a super nasty distortion unit. I might mod it some too to make it less polite when turned up. Its actually a pretty cool fuzz box for non-traditional guitar sounds. I got the idea when I was listening to smashing pumpkins with my toddler and remembered that Corgan had said that the weird guitar tone for the riff in Everlasting Gaze was a little crate student amp. I figured what the heck, lemmee get a pre-modelling junk toy amp for my own vile uses. And next thing you know I was recording my own snakey riff and went off to the races on a garbage-inspired song, although I skipped the crap speaker and went right into the board LOL
I actually have this thing out of the pressboard cab right now and threw the cab in the attic.... I will probably mod it and then try to rack it so i can throw it in a true bypass loop for use in front of an amp using the line out jack. Or maybe I'll rack it and just throw it in a spare amp switcher loop on my egnater head switcher so it can drive good speakers. At 15 solid state watts I can do my 'turn it to 11' fuzz trick for a gimmick tone live but easily revert back to my fancy amps for most sounds. We'll see. I am prettys ure the shit speaker is going to et used for target practive if I ever get out to paintball again!
