If you’re a rock guitarist looking for a killer lower powered combo, this baby was designed by Mike Soldano and has the massive thick sustain you would expect from Soldano. It’s a dual-channel amp, advertised as a clean and high-gain but it’s more like a tube Marshall, with a semi-clean channel and an overdrive channel. The Crunch (clean) channel does have some chime thanks to the EL84’s but it’s far from the sparkling clean like a Fender. It cranks 20 watts (conservative rating) through a single Jet City Eminence Custom driver, with outputs in back to add additional cabinets. The back panel also has an effects loop and footswitch input. The footswitch (included) selects the “clean” or overdrive channel. The circuit is all tube with five 12AX7 preamp and a pair of EL84 power. On the front panel each channel has its own Preamp and Master Volume control, and they share the EQ section of Bass, Middle, Treble, and Presence. Unlike a lot of budget tube amps this one actually has a real wood cabinet with multi-ply, void-free hardwood, which is lighter and has better acoustic properties than the particleboard used on many amps. Because of this the amp weighs in at just 38 lbs. Chassis is made of 16 gauge cold-rolled steel and the power transformer uses worldwide current with tapes at 100v/120v/220v/240v. If you’re looking for an amp that’s perfect for classic rock and modern rock, with excellent variations within that genre, this could be the perfect amp. I even like the cleaner tones but, again, it’s more like a EVH or Whitesnake clean. Offered in flawless condition, out of the box only to shoot pics. This is a very well engineered amp for the rock player and with the build quality a cut above others in this price range, it’s an excellent buy at $399, or guitar trades of course. Includes original box, manual, and footswitch which switches from Crunch and Overdrive channels.
