Awesome low watt tube amp
Vox Lover, 19.08.2020
I love low watt tube amps and this is a worthy addition to the few that I have. It looks like the Blues Breaker in miniature, which is aesthetically very pleasing - a classic Marshall look. And the circuitry seems to be similar to the old Marshall classics; it has that great EL34 tone. It has an FX loop, and comes with a foot pedal with which you can engage the overdrive function (that heats up the preamp stage and gives about a 3dB boost) and the FX loop. Nice. I think it's strange that Thomann mentions neither the FX loop or that it comes with the pedal; those were selling points for me, but I only found that info on other sites that reviewed the amp. As some have pointed out, access to the loop in/outputs, and the extension speaker output are kind of out of the way and not so easily accessible. No biggy, just a little inconvenient. And you'll want to hook it up to a larger speaker, as the Celestion 8" isn't really bad, but sounds a bit boxy and quacky to me. I like a single 12" or a pair of 10s. Anything with 16Ohms is fine. But the 8 is perfect for living room practice. If you're micing the cab, be aware that the speaker is off-center - it's to the left. It's a 5W amp, but can be switched to half a watt. That's brilliant! 5 watts is pretty loud - perfect for practicing and enough for club work if its miced. But the half-watt setting is great if you want it to break up without having the neighbors calling the cops.

The breakup when you push it is very natural. You can get a very nice clean tone, but when you dig in with the pick it will respond immediately, much like an amp with a tube rectifier would. And it has this weird so-called "tilt" knob. As far as I can tell, it's similar to a presence control, like on the old Plexis, but seems to affect the upper mids more than the highs. It doesn't really add "air" but a bit of sparkle around 3 to 4 KHz. Maybe the old presence controls affected the same frequencies, so forgive me if I'm off base here. I had a Plexi, but that was decades ago...

Anyway, for the price, a fraction of what a boutique low-watt tube amp would cost, it's a very worthy amp with lots of tone. And, if I may, Thomann is offering it at about 150 Euros cheaper than some of the competition. So, for me, it was a no-brainer.

I'm very pleased, and surprised at the quality and tone for such a reasonably priced tube amp. No, actually the price is amazing for so much tone and quality.

Incredible Amp!!!
Gio Maiele, 01.10.2020
The amp is a high quality one, and for the price that Thomann has it compared to other places, it is half the price! had some issues with the purchase, but contacted the Thomann team, and they solved it perfectly. Good customer service and good quality stuff!

Highly Versatile Amp with a Modern Sound
Furkan, 12.11.2018
My main style is jazz/fusion and progressive. I have been using an Ibanez RGA121 with Illuminator pickups and I have Red Witch Ivy Distortion pedal hooked up in between. This amp has only a single channel with a boost switch so if you want high gain, a pedal is necessary. Other than that, the 8" speaker did not sound boxy to me as it did with other amps, the voice pot on the amp got rid of that excess bassy responses.

All in all, I would recommend this amp to anyone searching a bedroom amp to practice. The power switch on it reduces the power to 0.5W which is suitable for home environment.
