Overall a great little recording amp. Not loud enough to gig with, unless it is a small club or bar. I guess you could mic it, but there are better amps to gig with than this one. If I ever lost this amp or some idiot decided to steal it, I would probably just try to find another amp to replace it.
Price: $180.00
Where Obtained: Ebay
This is an all tube amp from the 60's. It has two channels, one is clean and the other one has reverb and tremolo features. It has a footswitch to turn on and off both of these features. Other than that the features are pretty lacking, but what do you expect for somthing this old. The one thing I don't like is the inability to switch between the channels. Also, the main channel does not have any EQ controls besides tone. The reverb/tremolo allows you to change the EQ a little bit more. It still gets a 3 because it has a few features.
Sound Quality:
Sound it great, altough it is a little quiet, but the clean tones sparkle. I tried several types of tubes out and each tube gives it a different characteristic. The tremolo is incredible and the reverb is very thick. Distorted sounds are ok, but I only use it for clean sounds.
Ease of Use:
Easy to use. Several knobs for each channel and a footswitch to turn on and off the tremolo and reverb.
I would never use it for a gig for several reasons. The first being that it isn't loud enough for me and second I wouldn't want it to get ruined. The amp seems durable besides the problems I have had with it already.
