decent tube alternative

Kajgot on 01.02.2016

The main reason I bought this amp was the lightweight, the option of silent recording at home and lack of power tubes which should grant long term reliability and rattle-free operation often inevitable with full tube combos. So far, the quality seems excellent. No rattle, everything seems sturdy and solid. Didn't look inside though. Both channels sound very good to my ears. Especially the clean channel. It's full and round and takes pedals very well (overdrives, muffs, fuzzes). No ice-pick highs, yet it cuts through and is very articulate. Drive channel is nice as well. Sounds quite rounded, in lack of better description. I prefer my drive a little bit crispier, but that's just a matter of taste. Boost works perfect for me - it's not a volume boost, but rather a gain boost, so you are just a tiny bit louder when engaged, but with more gain and sustain. Both channels share EQ, but they are well balanced and nicely voiced so it's not a problem. However it would be nice to have the EQ separated. You can set both channels clean or dirty due to separate gain and volume controls. Obviously, the clean channel will not provide too much dirt, but it breaks up very nice, just as a full tube amp would. Both channels are very responsive to playing dynamics and guitar's volume control. The amp is very loud. Not HIWATT pumping Fanes loud, but loud enough to easily play alongside heavy handed drummer and gig with it. It doesn't even need to be fully cranked to get that loud. I usually keep the dimmer at 100% as it sounds more open to me and channels' volume controls about halfway up. Did a couple of gigs with it with dimmer control around 70% (channels' volume around 50%).
Line out feature is handy for silent recording if you disconnect the speaker. A level control for line out would be nice feature, as well as headphones out.
It's a bit heavier than officially claimed.
Comes with two button footswitch.
Considering it's not a full tube design it's a little bit pricey.
