Very gos amp
mm00024, 07.01.2018
Pros:
1) Many features as you read them in the manual
2) Nice lighting
3) For home use you wont need more than 5 watt power and its still a lot
4) Small size
5) The transparent material in front is not glass its plastic so you dont need to worry about breaking it
Cons:
1) It get too hot after long use
2) Master Volume is not controllable via expression pedals and not smartly controllable when you change channels so as to remember different setting for each chanell. If you want to control master volume then you need to put a volume pedal in the effects loop
3) China made tubes
4) Redbox out if you want to place headphones directly for night use you cant, you ll need headphone amplifier or PA
5) Boost should have a boost knob so you can choose how much to boost cause you need sometimes more boost than it offers

Saturn Stealth, 05.10.2018
Amplifier in use year. Compact, light enough for regular shipments. Beautiful backlight. By the way, if you make a multi-colored backlight, it would look even more interesting. Oriented to modern sound, the reverb sounds pretty good. I realized that I really like the sound of the marshal, especially the purely analog one. Apparently, digital processing did not even reach the level where it is impossible to distinguish analog sound from digital audio. For blues-rock, you need an There is a large circuit with large and correct transformers. Maybe it?s all about small transformers and output Chinese EL84 lamps. But the problem is most likely in a digital signal. By the way, on a clean channel, the sound is pleasant. 40 "horses" under the hood for the rehearsal room create a powerful sound with a margin for all that your fiery soul eager to say.
In general, the amplifier is functional, silent mode is useful for recording at night. All creative success! :)
