Posted on 12/09/2019 by Everyone will tell you what gorgeous crunchy tones you can get from this amp, but few will talk about the stunning, warm and honey-like clean tones. I’m talking REALLY clean, not bluesy, on the edge of break up clean. I mean, JAZZ clean. And loud too. As MarkB (no relation) pointed out, this thing is so loud which is good if you want really clean tones. The Shape control is all you need to get loads of useful tones, and if you’re honest, even if you have bass middle and treble knobs, there are only a few settings on any amp that you can use. So the Shape knob just dials in tones you’ll actually use. Fewer knobs, more playing. Just what you need.
This is also a fun amp to do some tube swapping with. You can noticeably and easily change the character with different 12AX7s. I may even buy a second one so I can AB with a foot switch.
A serious little amp.
Posted on 02/11/2018 by If anyone tells you they need more amp than this, they’re wrong. This thing is literally staggering - you’ll spend so much time looking over your shoulder to check if it really is this tiny little box making all this noise. It genuinely sounds colossal!
With the PPC108 cab it can get crazy loud, you can easily put your windows through while you’re practising at home, but plug it into a 4x12 and you’ll blow yourself away.
It sounds fantastic on almost any setting, easily good enough to gig with and weighs less than my shoes.
Every time I turn it on, it knocks me out. What an amp.
