A great amp for heavy metal
Where Obtained: Local music shop (crazy train music)
Stereo chorus, foot switch comes with it, has an effects loop, 2 gain modes and clean channel, contour switch, just about everything u need really
Im using a jackson KVX10 through it playing Heavy Metal, it has a really unique sound in my opinion, it has a very chunky sound to it yet it can be a little bit muddy sometimes, so don't overdue the gain, its a little bit annoying that the clean and gain channels are at quite abit of difference in volume, the sound from this suits me amazingly, it adds a whole new beef to my sound
Its pretty easy i think to use, a little bit of experimentation and i found the sound that i really liked through it
It seems like a beast, ive only played one gig with it so far and it held out pretty good but i got abit of feedback, so i might have to get a noise gate
This thing kicks serious butt...
again...its a sub 500 dollar solid state amp...
no its not a Fender Twin, or a Triple Rectifier...or a vibro king...its a 400 dollar very loud very clean amp...you may as well say your 59 bassman is better than my 7-100 pignose battery amp...duh...you mean 1000 bucks will get me a better amp, you mean a Porche will beat my mini van???

KILLER POWER...very very loud, blows the fender 160 combo out of the water!!!!
The clean is to die for...shimmers...the reverb is nice, fender esc...very loud, the distortion is nice for me...
80's metal or surf and rockabilly, no prob...
The chorus is a nice touch, but not as great as a pedal...
Very easy...the channels have very different volumes output...that would be my only complaint...personaly, I'd always use the Clean channel (the loudest and clearist by far) and a good pedal...
Thickest cab I have personaly used...but who the heck puts a top handle on a 65lb amp...talk about stupid...
