A great amp with a perfect and clean sound, excellent to use with your pedals and not change the sound of the effects you have. The clean channel is really clean and works perfect with the effects in my board and the drive channel has a very unique sound, having two kind of distortions, soft and hard. The power of this amp is awesome, for concerts this is a very good option.
Great but its gotta be run hot
Creat amp But its got to be run hot, so your choices are to run well over 100db way over or install an air brake on it to be usable in small venues or practice spaces. As with all the Fender amps of Late the older US version is a bit better build quality then the new ones. Great tube sound overdrive is nice and the clean channel is typical of a fender clean. Stock spring tank on the new ones can do with an upgrade but its an easy swap. If you dont need this amount of loud check out the Hot Rod Deluxe, its much more tamable.
Great cleans, unlimited headroom, too powerful
When i got this amp, i was under the impression that your amp could never be 'too powerful'. Wrong. this thing is dead until you hit 2 then 2.5 is uncomfortably loud. i was never able to feasibly go past 5 and at that point the paint was peeling off the walls. The thing goes to 12. The amp itself sounds amazing and works great with pedals but it's just too powerful and loud for my and most players' i know's purposes.
Great sound on the dirty channel
I bought this used for $100 because there wasn't much volume coming out of it. Well, it turns out if it's missing a preamp tube, you can't get the volume you want. Plus it had a one of the preamp tube spots had a 12AT7 instead of a 12AX7, which would work, but it won't give you the sound that the amp was intended to have. Anyway, after retubing the amp, power tubes and all, the dirty channel sounds great. I'm having some weird issues with the clean channel, specifically a good bit of noise coming out when the bright switch is engaged, but I'm hoping a close inspection of the caps might reveal a minor fix. I may try the Fromel mod at some point. By the way, the Master volume isn't actually a Master volume. I originally thought that it had been modded to be that way, but apparently that's just how it's supposed to be. The "Master" volume is simply a volume for the Drive channel. Very odd. But overall, great sound, the potential is there. I may have to keep this one.
Great sounding amp! Only downside it goes really loud!
Simply one of the best amps I've ever used for live gigs. It has great cleans. Even the dirty channels are usefull! I currently just use it clean and run everything from my pedalboard. Only downside is that it goes really loud. Hard to handle!
