It has definately become my favorite amp. For that old school sound that is unmistakable I love it. One down side to it is the weight. When purchasing this amp consider buying the wheels. That will be my next purchase. Otherwise I have no complaints and I really enjoy the tones I get.
Price: $1150.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
A very straight basic setup. This is a case of less is more. This is a reissue of the classic. With 2 channels 1 normal and one vibrato. It has 45 watts (more than enough) of all tube power. Apart from the spring reverb which allows for adjusting speed and intensity, there are no other effects (read overdrive) on this amp so break out the pedals. It does have a couple of "bright" switches which will brighten up the tones when playing at lower volumes.
Sound Quality:
I have played this with a TS-9 reissue and a Dunlap Crybaby wah pedal. I have also used the Boss blues driver on it. All of these have produced very vintage sounds so if you are looking for the classic rock or blues sound this is definately your baby. The cleans are so clean I really believe one could play any style. I've tried country, blues and jazz as well as good old rock n roll and I have been thrilled. It has a little bit of a hiss when the pedal gains are high but that is to be expected.
Ease of Use:
Very easy to use. Just plug in and turn it on. The highs mids and lows are adjusted to taste and you are ready to play. Since there are no effects there is really nothing to do but play.
Durability:
I have only had it about a month or so, but it seems pretty well built. Of course tubes break or need to be replaced but it looks pretty easy to do. Everything is very accessable.
